Willging understands that deer-hunting is as much about the smell of the woods in autumn and the meticulous cleaning of a fine rifle as it is about bringing home a whitetail. This story will offer a fascinating glimpse into a distant and not-so-distant past, when the hunt joined men in almost mythical unity and bucks were seemingly larger than life.

The Anti-Reader has locked our scanner in the Breakout EDU box, and if we don’t get the box open, we will not be able to check out books today!

Saturdays are for adventures and exploring. Come explore, share a story, and more with your family and friends. All ages.
