I'm in my second season hunting, first with a bow. I've had decent success going at it alone without any real guidance or know how. I would like to become as much of an off-season expert as I can between now and September. What are your top books to read on whitetail? I'm most interested in patterning, bedding, food sources...basically maximizing my chances of finding deer each time I'm out and really finding the most productive and promising locations of a given property. I hunt almost exclusively public land so i really need to be on top of my game. I have general knowledge of the types of areas deer hang out, food sources, etc but haven't really systematically put it all together to really focus on finding those key areas. My plan is to read read read read as much as I can then put a lot of time in scouting and try and approach it systematically.
