Wootters, who followed in the great Jack O'Connor's footsteps as editor of Petersen's Hunting magazine, was really the first whitetail deer-specific expert. In the heyday of the hunting and fishing generalist, Wooters published the classic book: "Hunting Trophy Deer." Though it might be impossible to imagine it in the whitetail-centric outdoor world of today, Wooters' book was a rarity. Not only was it species specific, but it was also limited to hunting for trophy bucks, which pretty much only existed in Texas back then. A dog-eared copy sits on my bookshelf today.
