"If you’re a forest landowner serious about managing your deer and woods then this book is for you." -Kip Adams QDMA "This book is an extensive resource for deer and timber management as well as all aspects of human dimensions. However, it is also a hands-on manual (see chapters 11,12, 13, 21, and the case studies), with an extensive review of all important background literature. As such, it will hold an important place in the library of a diverse readership." -Dave Samuel "There is perhaps no one better qualified to speak to the issue of integrating deer and forest management than the authors in this book..... This book provides the definitive answers. It belongs on the reading list of every forest landowner." -William F. Porter, Boone and Crockett Professor of Wildlife Michigan State University “This book is an extensive resource for deer and timber management and is a hands-on manual that includes extensive review of relevant literature." David Samuel, Bowhunter Magazine “It captures the wealth of knowledge of the authors who understand deer as hunters, ecologists, managers and scientists. It provides a leap forward in the who and how of deer and forest management.” Peter Smallidge, Extension Forester “Deer Management highlights the topics of deer biology and ecology, human dimensions, planning and assessment, communicating with stakeholders, and specific case examples to illustrate the authors' points of addressing these complex management challenges.[…] This book would be beneficial to students, land managers, and biologists with an interest in understanding the complexities of deer management.” Andrew R. Little, University of Nebraska‐Lincoln "If you’re a forest landowner serious about managing your deer and woods then this book is for you." -Kip Adams QDMA "This book is an extensive resource for deer and timber management as well as all aspects of human dimensions.

David Samuel, Bowhunter Magazine “It captures the wealth of knowledge of the authors who understand deer as hunters, ecologists, managers and scientists. It provides a leap forward in the who and how of deer and forest management.” Peter Smallidge, Extension Forester Deer Management for Forest Landowners and Managers provides an overview of the complexities of managing overabundant white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) populations in forested landscapes… It provides readers with the basics of managing deer in a complex environment…and highlights the topics of deer biology and ecology, human dimensions, planning and assessment, communicating with stakeholders, and specific case examples to illustrate the authors' points of addressing these complex management challenges. This book would be beneficial to students, land managers, and biologists with an interest in understanding the complexities of deer management and how others (the case histories) navigated a variety of deer management challenges. Communicating with and Educating Stakeholders was one of my favorite chapters because of the in-depth discussion on developing an effective communication program and the dissemination of the management plan through a variety of media outlets (e.g., websites, social media)… while taking into account and understanding stakeholder perspectives and desires.
