Deer on My Doorstep
by, Davey, Colin

ISBN: 9781877566783
PUBLISHER: Halcyon Press
FORMAT: Paperback

Originally published by A.H. & A.W. Reed, 1965, this is the first of a new series of books by The Halcyon
Press, "Halcyon Hunting Classics."
Voted one of the best ten hunting books of the twentieth century, Halcyon have re-issued in a modern
format this classic hunting tale.
Set first in the Wairarapa Colin Davey set out to improve the quality of the deer he was hunting. He was
disappointed in the trophy quality and wanted to hunt bigger and better trophies. Not content to just go
and shoot any deer he set out to selectively cull inferior and sub standard animals and in the course of time
over several years improved the health and trophy quality of the deer he was hunting, within a small area
of the Wairarapa. At the time this book was published his ideas were regarded with some skepticism, and
caused a minor sensation.
The second part of the book is about Colin's adventures in Fiordland. He returned to Fiordland many times,
over his lifetime and voiced his concern about the decreasing trophy potential of the Wapiti herd, unless
sound management was introduced. Again at the time the book was originally published his ideas were
regarded as some sort of heresy.
The book still resonates with the adventures and original thinking of a dedicated trophy hunter.
