All the famous deer are here - the Jordan, the Breen, the Hole-in-the-Horn, and current world records for both typical and non-typical categories. Included for each are stunning photographs, scoresheets, and in-depth stories of how the deer were taken. Besides a fine collection of hunting stories, the accounts include fascinating details of how the great heads of the past came to be acknowledged and revered today.

Format: Hardcover
Reading this book was enlightening. I came away with the realization that what happened to these people can happen to anyone. Most of the people in the book were ordinary people that just went out hunting. Some were "trophy Hunters" but many were just subsistence meat hunters that were out looking for food to feed their families. Many of them would typically have been happier shooting a nice young fork horn or a doe.
Anyone that is a Whitetail deer hunter would enjoy this book thoroughly. I could not put it down once I started reading it. I can't wait for volume two.

If you are a deer hunter-buy this book! The short stories about the 40 greatest deer of all time and photos of these beasts are enough to make the heart of the most seasoned deer hunter thump with buck fever. Since my purchase of this book, I have bought three others for my three lucky hunting buddies. What a book!

This book is great. The stories behind each magnificent animal makes you feel like you were there on the hunt. Very insightful info on the Big Bucks that have been made famous. I am looking forward to the second book Legendary Whitetails II. You won't be disappointed with this one. My hat is off to Dick Idol!!!

Anyone who has the "fever" will love this book. Some of the stories in this book are almost fable like. If you like this book, check out World Record Whitetails for an even more in depth look at large bucks through the past century.
