Identify age structure for improved land management
Successfully identify mature whitetails before you fire a slug or fling an arrow. This eight-page book features 22 color photographs, and includes key characteristics used to age and score four age classes of deer: Young (1-1/2 - 2-1/2 years); Middle-Aged (3-1/2-4-1/2 years); Mature (5-1/2-6-1/2 years); and Old (7-1/2+.) Each age class has four pictures presented in a split-page format to easily compare characteristics. Along with the guide, you'll learn important information used to field score bucks "on the hoof" using the Boone and Crockett scoring system and blank score sheet. Also includes a photograph identifying internal organs for proper shot placement on whitetails. Printed on laminated card stock for in-the-field use.
