Neil and Craig Dougherty’s new book, Whitetails From Ground to Gun is promising to revolutionize whitetail deer hunting. That’s what early reviewer’s are saying. As Brian Murphy, CEO of QDMA, stated, “this book ….is a monumental leap into a new era of whitetail knowledge---how to think like a deer, not a deer hunter… this book represents the next frontier in the QDM movement… a clear roadmap for QDM success.

The Dougherty’s first book, Grow ‘Em Right, is an industry best seller. It is considered to be the “Bible of property management”. Their new book picks up where the last one left off. Murphy concluded that the book “provides detailed insight into what makes a great hunting property and how to consistently harvest mature bucks”.

According to Craig, “The questions have changed, they used to ask “how do I build a great deer hunting property and grow big deer”? Now they are asking, “now that I have big bucks to hunt, how the heck do I kill them?” That’s what this book is all about, connecting the dots between the land, mature deer, and the hunter”.

The book is organized into two parts: Part I “The Land Connection” (Click Here to download an Excerpt) focuses on the relationship between land and white-tailed deer. It examines how deer use land and how to create outstanding whitetail properties. Part II “Mature Deer and How to Hunt Them” (Click Here to download an Excerpt) provides unique insights into mature deer behavior and how to hunt them. In total there are almost 300 pages, over 200 photos in 12 chapters.
