"Like Audubon, William Elliott and Judge Caton,
Roosevelt liked to chase deer with horses and
hounds: 'To be able to ride through woods and
over rough country at full speed, rifle or shotgun
in hand, and then to leap off and shoot at a running
object is to show that one has the qualities which
made the cavalry of Forrest so formidable in the Civil War.'
This volume also contains an excellent chapter on
'Books on Big Game' in which Roosevelt reveals his
admiration for two other giants among deer
hunters: Judge Caton and T.S. Van Dyke" (Wegner, 234).
