Summary

Summary

The influence of the Benoits on a generation of hunters is seen throughout the northeastern woods in the many hunters dressed in green checkered wool and rubber boots with a Remington pump-action rifle in their hands. The way they hunt is often considered "regional," and to some extent it is. They are trackers, but even more important is that they are woodsmen. While many think that they simply get on the track of a big buck and "run him down," nothing could be further from the truth. It takes an overall woodsman with a profound understanding of whitetail behavior to succeed at hunting deer this way. Sure they are trackers, but more than that they are deer hunters.
