From the man who brought us Hunting Rutting Whitetails and two other deer hunting classics starting almost 30 years ago, this latest treatise could offer the final pieces to many puzzles.  Gene's new book contains 23 chapters and over half a century of intense deer hunting experience.  At 265 pages hardbound, with lots of photos and art, it offers advanced "postgraduate" suggestions on hunting techniques, unexploited scouting ideas, finely tuned stand placement concepts, air movement info, rut details, plus insight on finding and making productive funnels.  Expect pure, "no nonsense" philosophy wrapped within passionate pursuit.


Fifty years of bowhunting adventure from "the man in the crooked hat", written in a format of campfire hunting tales. 23 chapters, approximately 360 pages, hardcover, lots of unpublished photos/art. Hair-raising yarns of Black Mambas; charging mountain lions; being treed by a grizz; overly intimate black bears, as well as close encounters with world-class whitetails. Many personal hunting techniques will be absorbed from reading between the lines. Practical knowledge through experience. Prop up your feet and enjoy American freedom at it's finest.

Come November

Over 25 years ago, Gene Wensel wrote a book entitled “Hunting Rutting Whitetails.” It changed the way many deerhunters went about pursuing their outdoor passion. Six years later, Gene penned his second book, “One Man’s Whitetail.”

Both of these books proved to be way ahead of their time, quickly becobook1ming cult classics among deerhunters by providing answers about whitetail behavior and hunting techniques that had until then puzzled American woodsmen simply because they had never been written about. There were no videos, DVDs or television shows about deerhunting in those days. Specialty magazines were non-existent. One could count on one hand the number of hunting magazines on newsstands. Many books were so old they offered little more than ancient history and market hunting techniques. No one raised deer in those days. A live Boone & Crockett whitetail had never been photographed. Camo was mostly military. Things like food plot seeds, compound bows, carbon gear and trail cameras were unavailable.

Gene’s first two books had theories yet to be tested and techniques that hadn’t been exploited. They sold tens of thousands of copies each. Both of these books have long been out of print. Today they command top dollar when used copies occasionally turn up on the internet.

Then, twenty years later, with decades of seasoned experience and many more big bucks to his credit, Gene updated hunters with yet a third book, this one an edited version of the best of his first two books plus additional material and philosophy that will not only help novice deerhunters but offer guidance to seasoned veterans as well.

“Come November” is already “out of print,” meaning we are well into our final printing. When these are sold out, they will be gone forever.
