Pete Bodo put together a true gem in Whitetail Nation – My Season in Pursui of the Monster Buck, in which Bodo sets off on a one year pursuit for that true Boone & Crockett Wallhanger whitetail deer. Pete was and is an exceptional writer he just did not have the kind of luck in the woods that he was looking for. Whitetail Nation chronicles his pursuit from the rolling hills of New York, Montana, Texas and Pennsylvania chasing after his dream buck. Whitetail Nation is deer hunting at its best and glues the reader to the book page by page like a hunter on the tracks of a monster buck.
Whitetail Nation is not just a story of Pete’s quest for that magical big buck, but it is also an full on account of the current obsession hunters have with the Whitetail Deer and the industry that exists to support that obsession. From Boone & Crockett accounts of the biggest bucks ever taken to new products like the Butt Out tool Pete covers it all with his own personal take on the industry, on the passion and the pursuit of big bucks by whitetail fanatics all across our great country.
Whitetail Nation celebrates the hunt and provides wisdom for hunters through the telling of a great story. Pete’s book is exceptional and while I have read tons and tons of books on whitetail deer hunting and the pursuit of the big buck, I walked away happy that I read this book and having learned a little bit more about our nations fanatic obsession with the whitetail deer. I also learned a few new tricks of the trade for my own pursuit of the elusive monster whitetail and I am sure any reader of Whitetail Nation will learn a few things as well.
