This book is packed with information not only about nutrition, but also about age, genetics, sex ratios, population, and other trophy factors. It skips the usual dry academic discussions and gives reasons for big antlers in easy-to-understand terms. It makes clear that nutrition is the number one variable in antler growth; and then shows simple and practical ways to use mineral and feed supplements and to develop trophy habitats by planting and cutting. It dispels long-standing myths about genetics, trace mineral salt, feed blocks, “buck factories”, and more; and is well-focused on things average hunters and clubs can do, without special knowledge or professional management. The lengthy lists that you might expect (of plant species and feeds) are conspicuously missing. Instead, the few things that produce the biggest results for the least work are emphasized. It’s well-illustrated and loaded with photos; all in all, a very practical and understandable book.
