"This is an outstanding treatise on one of America's most important big-game animals. Although thousands of sportsmen take to the field each year in quest of trophies, the perpetuation of elk hunting in America depends entirely upon proper management of the herds. Whether management succeeds or fails in future years will depend upon how well the public understands the problems of the game administrators and of the animals themselves. A wealth of information for the naturalist or the sportsman is to be found in this volume. Habits, feed preferences, seasonal movements, anatomy, antler development, and management problems are interestingly and thoroughly discussed. Written by one of America's greatest field naturalists, this new book has behind it a lifetime spent in intimate study of the subject." Fine Condition.
