It was with great pleasure that I read "Zero to Deer." Hiss got a great many things right and did not ignore or tiptoe discreetly past certain aspects of her experience. Forty years ago, you ascertained that your deer was down to stay, looked at him, and marveled at the whole thing. Or, at least, I did. Now we have the end-zone dance, the high five, and a host of other regrettable displays aired regularly on the Outdoor Channel. Of all the young writers I have read in a long time, I have not been so sure of any as I am of Hiss. She's starting on the high moral ground, and I see no reason not to stay there.
