Has good info on pretty much everything about butchering game, and recipes for them as well. A very thorough book, including info on the various diseases and parasites that might be encountered and how to circumnavigate these, as well as anatomy drawings etc. This is an American book - I don't think I'll be using the recipe for stuffed opossum any time soon - but still very relevant and detailed with scientific info on oxidization of meat etc.

HASH(0x97334aec) out of 5 stars Good book for some one who wants to go from field to table. 29 Sept. 2013
By Soft beard the pirate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Flexibound Verified Purchase
This is a good book with lots of info and color photos that will help you get from field dressing, threw butchering and into the smoking and curing of your game animals. I love all forms of meat, especially smoked meat and this has a good deal of info on it, but I bought the book because it has more field care info on a wider variety of game critters than the one I already had. Worth the money.

HASH(0x976afd2c) out of 5 stars Essential Gift and Tool for Hunters and Fisherman 8 Dec. 2013
By Tim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Flexibound Verified Purchase
Very Detailed information. The pictures and illustrations are particularly beneficial. I can't imagine a better guide or instructive manual. I've hunted my entire life and have seen several "how to" books over the years. Not until this book did I decide to purchase one.

HASH(0x976afc30) out of 5 stars Great guide for beginning hunters 25 Feb. 2015
By Kuro570 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a person just getting into hunting I found this book to be very informative as how to cut, what to cut and all the tools you'll need vs what is a commodity to get the job done.

Lots of big full colored quality pictures with clear anatomy of specific animals. Pretty clear directions and lots of handy tips like how to remove pelts intact or ways to cook and store. Really great guide.

HASH(0x976c9930) out of 5 stars Very special book for do it yourself hunters 3 Dec. 2015
By Donna M Farrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Flexibound Verified Purchase
My son-in-law hunts wild game such as elk and deer. He wanted to learn preferred methods for curing and smoking. He looked high and low in book stores, but could not find the book he wanted. I bought this hoping he might like it - he loved it and is delighted to have it in his library for use after this years hunting trip.
