The black market in white-tailed deer.

Black deer trade poses health threat for whitetail population.
By Ben Rehder
It’s a humid summer evening in central Texas, and a man we’ll call Cal is about to make an illegal purchase. As a result, his anxiety level is high. His palms are damp, his heart is racing and his mouth is dry.

The item in this particular transaction isn’t a bale of marijuana or a stolen laptop, or even a crate of bootleg CDs. It’s an 11-point white-tailed buck with highly desirable drop-tine antlers off each main beam.

Holiday Gift Idea

A few months ago, I sold a signed complete set of the Blanco mysteries on eBay. Boy, did I feel like a proud entrepreneurial capitalist. It went well.

Recently I got my hands on another new copy of Buck Fever (a remainder, actually), so I'm selling another full set on eBay.

I'll sign 'em however you want.

Funny and accurate.
