On the Hunt is the story of deer hunting in Wisconsin and how this annual tradition became a mainstay in the lives of generations of Wisconsinites. Meticulously researched by one of the state's most prolific outdoor writers, On the Hunt draws from old Wisconsin Department of Conservation papers, hunting and fishing magazines, local and state newspapers, and the personal stories of hunters and deer managers. From Wisconsin's original deer hunters--the Paleo-Indians--to the settlers and pioneers who hunted deer for survival, to the decimation of the state's deer in the early 1900s and the management policies that brought them back, On the Hunt chronicles the people, practices, and traditions that make deer hunting an intrinsic Wisconsin tradition.
