I know this is like asking, where did I place my car keys? But I’m hoping. Several years ago I had a book on bow hunting for white tail deer. I’ve either misplaced it, or it wasn’t mine to begin with and I returned it to its owner. The book was based on one or a few hunters approach to hunting. One hunter in particular was from, and hunted in, Alabama. This hunter discusses spot and stalk. He emphasized movement through the woods. His position on traveling was to the effect if you think you are moving slow enough you are still moving too fast. He also talked about taking bedded deer and that he would continue on when he spotted them, like he never saw them, and then turn to make the shot. If anyone can recollect my recollection (I know it sounds goofy) and would know the name of said book please tell me. Thanks

Not the one you are looking for ( i think) but G Fred Asbell wrote a book on stalking and some of what you mentioned rings with what he described. If you are interested in stalking, it us a good read anyway.

Good luck finding your book. Pretty certain it will be in the last place you look.

I think I have read those "pointers" about "moving slow" and "passing by" from more than one source?  Thought maybe it was in "Bowhunting's Whitetail Masters", but looked through it and nobody is from Alabama? I'll do more looking on my book shelves.

Like chuckc said G. Fred Asbell has a book called Stalking and Still Hunting The Ground Hunters Bible and it has alot of what you are looking for plus he has previously published books that might be it but I don't think he is from Alabama!

Finding a decent price on Asbell’s book is a challenge but I’ll keep looking.

Sounds like Byron Ferguson.

 I am almost certain it is not the book you are looking for but see if you can get your hands on a copy of Stalking Deer by Don Groves. An excellent book on the art of stalking deer and this guy has killed some dandys.

The masters secrets of bow hunting deer by John E. Phillips. I’m fairly certain that’s it. Made reference to Jerry Simmons and some other folks from Alabama. I just bought me a copy. I’ll make a list of all the others mentioned and start acquiring them.
