I read it, i thought it was ok, probably my least favorite of all the eastman published books though. mike's book on high country mule deer was a little i better i thought. i would say my favorite eastman book is the one hiker mentioned by David Long. i also really enjoyed Cameron Hanes' backcountry bowhunting:a guide to the wild side.
The cameron hanes book has a good section on elk if you're into bow hunting, i've also read a section of "Elk hunting 101" by Jay Houston. It's not too bad, might be worth checking out. it's not an eastman book but still..
The Eastmans, as a whole are probably the most exsperianced and knowledgeable family there is when it comes to fair chase and public land hunting there is.
Davids book is another must have. If your thing is fair chase public land hunting, which most hunters are especially public land hunting everything they write or tape is worth a look.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
