Deer: The New Zealand Story | David Yarex | 2001 First Edition | Softcover | $30 | Good Condition, spine faded

his new book tells the amazing story of red deer in New Zealand since their introduction in the 1850s to provide sport for settlers. At first, some great trophies were taken, but before long deer had so expanded in numbers and range they were eating out the native forests and raiding farmland. This led to their being declared a pest, and to control measures that created a hunting subculture encompassing all levels of society.

Deer: the New Zealand story provides a detailed, highly readable overview that draws upon a lifetime's experience in the worlds of deer farming and hunting. David Yerex has been specially commissioned by a group of leading figures in the deer industry, who have provided many photographs and much information never previously published. The resulting book will be appreciated by all with an interest in hunting, farming, the environment and their nation's history.
