Howard Meyerson wrote in his Outdoor Journal blog about Richard P. Smith’s newest book, “Great Michigan Deer Tales, Book 6.”
Meyerson said he enjoys reading about Michigan hunters and their trophy kills. Smith’s book is subtitled: “Stories Behind Michigan’s Biggest Bucks.” And it's especially timely because the state's firearm deer season is underway.
"He writes about big Boone and Crockett Club deer killed all over the state and others poised for records," Meyerson notes. "The Boone and Crockett Club is the national records organization for big game kills. Living in Grand Rapids, I wondered if anyone nearby had been listed. Indeed, there was.
"The story of Cedar Springs’ hunter, Jim Powell, and his successful 2006 bow hunt for a magnificent Kent County eight-point buck was there. So was Allegan County’s Peter Prather, who shot a terrific 20-point buck that same year with his muzzleloader."
