Product Description



This book contains information most people, even deer hunters, did not know. The book explains how America once had plenty of deer herds, and centuries later, had very few deer , to the point of extinction, and then, in the 19th century, gained deer in abundance once again.

The book is filled with state maps depicting WHERE imported deer originated and WHERE the deer were placed. It even list the states that did not import any other sub species whitetail within it's borders, like South Carolina.

In the first chapter of the book, Rusty wants you to feel like you are there with him, in 1966 at age 11,  when a perfect racked, 8 pt buck jumped high, out of a thick honeysuckle patch and into an open soybean field..."Buck fever" was real for Rusty as he was frozen at first in his stance, gripping his heavy, bolt action Mossberg shotgun loaded with only 6 shot.

It was pure serendipity, that Rusty once ended up living in Bibb County, Alabama for a few years, where he searched out and discovered the first deer pens or "deer corrals"  that were used to hold the first, imported North Carolina deer, into Alabama counties. Later, Alabama, like many other states listed in this book, imported deer (plus other species of ruminants) into their states and the Lacy law that had previously been implemented in 1900, was heavy handed Federally reinforced, with Game Wardens, with immense power and amendments later added to the Lacy Law.

But this book is much more as it goes into the amazing culture clashes of newly arrived Europeans old the "old world" and the already established native Indian tribes in America and the fact (that many historians fail to mention)  of mixed cultures created that for decades, thrived together in the deepest south of America. However, President Andrew Jackson, "old hickory," with the support of the rest of the young Republic of America, put down the American with several bloody "Indian Wars."

  1. Incredibly interesting!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2021

    It dawned on me after reading the first 7 chapters of this book, m wife actually pointed it out was I would read the book in bed to her, ( we are new Georgia transplants from Washington State ) how NON-JUDGEMENTAL Mr. Haynes is on writing the book. How he simply writes the happenings on America's influx on Europeans with native Americans and speaks in a tone, that providence, that is, God, had planned all this out, the advancement of the human condition. A good read, especially if you did not grasp the southeast and the Creek and Cherokee Indian tribes influence with early Europeans and how they got along, UNTIL Andrew Jackson stepped in

  2. Easy to read, SUPER INFORMATIVE 5 Star Review

    Young people should read this book. Mr. Haynes seems like an intelligent man, but self depreciation and funny, and made this book easy to read, which I love. His personality comes through strong

  4. Loved book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2021

    i grew up in Arkansas and moved to Mississippi when I was 10, came from long line of deer hunters ( with dogs back then) and Mr. Haynes is correct, there were hardly any deer back when we grew up in the 50's and 60's. This book to me back, plus I love the state maps showing the deer restocking/distribution dynamic

  6. Loved this book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2021

    I use to teach at a small college and what I like about this book, it starts a chapter with 1. humor, homespun, but it goes into 2. real history and ends with 3. new knowledge. But what sparkled to me is NO FOOT NOTES, and Shelby Foote also used no foot notes as he said " all this has been written for hundreds of years, I just put in into a new perspective" Haynes gives credit to who he needs to give credit, but writes, as Foote does, in a more novel form, which makes it not boring! Just like Shelby Foote. You can tell when someone enjoys what he is writing. Bill

  7. Great information! Deer people should enjoy this book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2021

    Mr. Haynes sounds like a fun person to deer hunt with! First chapter was fun as he was rabbit hunter who became deer hunter when he saw his first deer in the wild

  9. Enjoyed book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2021

    I laughed out loud on first chapter. Rest of book was different but first chapter paved the way for the authors ability to change gears. Brilliant mind! I am a deer hunter but appreciate a cool book that obviously took much work through a deer hunters years of hunting and taking notice, and then doing research of “why things are like they are”

  10. Very interesting/informative book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2021

    I like the open style the author writes in, refreshing
