Fall in love with hunting all over again with these stunning photos that will leave you smiling, reminiscing at your own memories of the hunt, and yearning to make more.

Travis Dewitz, photographer and author of “Blaze Orange: Whitetail Deer Hunting in Wisconsin believes that telling stories through photos are the fabric of history…with the power to inform and transform.

In  his coffee table photo book, Dewitz captures the joy, excitement, and camaraderie of deer hunting in a way that few photographers can.

Witness the lone hunter in a treestand as dawn arrives, the young girl and her grandpa scouting in a field of snow, and a group of friends, exhausted from the hunt, regaling their stories around the campfire.

Real people, real lives – Dewitz captures the joy of the hunt in his outstanding photos.

In these photos, and many more, Dewitz captures a culture touchstone as more than half a million hunters storm the fields and woods every hunting season.

Dewitz amazingly catches the glory, the joy, the excitement, and the agony of each hunt.

Not only does he capture a true picture of life behind the shotgun, but Dewitz takes his journey a step further, riding along with hunters and a game warden, visiting local mom-and-pop stores where hunters gather, and recording the industries that operate alongside the deer season—a taxidermist and knife maker, butchers and sausage makers.

The result is a stunning and keen-eyed chronicle of one season of the Wisconsin deer hunt in a vivid, exhilarating, and compelling compilation of photographs.
