Richard P. Smith is an award-winning outdoor writer and photographer living in Marquette, Michigan, who has been deer hunting for almost 40 years.  His writing and photography regularly appear i magazines such as Deer and Deer Hunting and American Hunter.  He is the author of numerous books including Deer Hunting, Third Edition.
