This gripping book full of unique photos was published jointly by the author and Czech Publishing House Lesnická práce in Kostelec nad Černými lesy in 2009.
Author´s profound knowledge and original approach make the book an outstanding achievement beyond any traditional literature dealing with roe deer. It intends to give comprehensive information on roe deer biology and ethology, and primarily to root out myths and dogmas that have been passed on from one generation of hunters to another. Besides bringing the latest information on roe deer biology, it also shows trickiness and pitfall often lying in wait for and wrongly affecting hunters in their daily activities. It focuses on the most frequently discussed topical issues of hunting.
Besides other interesting topics the book also deals with the phenomenon of antlers (aiming at explaining how the complex vascular and nerve systems affect the growth of antlers - from growing through mineralisation until casting). Its value also lies, among others, in an extensive chapter on abnormalities in roe deer antlers and reasons for them.
In 2010 the book was awarded Czech-Moravian Hunting Association Prize in the field of professional literature.(a stalker’s lifetime experience)
