About the Author
Patrick Meitin began bowhunting 36 years ago and has evolved with the sport to become a highly skilled competitive archer, bowhunter and big-game guide.

White-tailed deer are the most popular big game in North America and Bowhunters’ Digest devotes several chapters to pursuing them in the varied habitats they roam. From classic farmlands to big-woods haunts, the plains and prairies, and even suburban areas that deer have adapted to – this book covers them all. Meitin also offers plenty of solid advice for consistent public-land bowhunting success, as well as strategies for scouting, hunting rubs and scrapes, and using rattling and calling to the best advantage.
Just as important as hunting skills, archery accuracy is paramount to bowhunting success and enjoyment. Meitin provides comprehensive advice on how to become a better archer by learning how to choose the right equipment, and set up your bow, arrows, crossbow, bolts and more. His expert guidance shows what it takes to improve accuracy through proper shooting form, fundamental aiming techniques, and ultimately how to prepare for high-pressure bowhunting situations.
