"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).
