See what it takes to track trophy-sized bucks like the legends do. If there is such a thing as hunting royalty, then the Beit family is it. They have been raking in trophy-sized bucks since Larry Beit first began to pioneer his unique tracking methods. As the family grew, so did the Beit hunting repertoire, expanding beyond simple sw tracking to all-season tracking. Author Bryce M. Towsley had a unique opportunity in the late nineties: to deer hunt with the Beits for an extended period in the deep woods of Maine. He spent time with the Beit family observing and learning their hunting tactics, techniques, and long-protected secrets. The product of Towsley's inclusion in the Beit family tradition is Big Bucks the Beit Way. Fully illustrated with Towsley's beautiful, full-color photography and written with his trademark prose and with a new introduction by the author, it tracks his experience following in the footsteps of the great Beit hunters, learning their craft and sharing it with you. Big Bucks the Beit Way is more than an exploration of the fine art of tracking bucks; it's a glimpse at the heart and beauty of American big-game hunting.
