Ironically, or perhaps most fittingly, this book was written by a veterinarian. I had a couple of chuckles about that fact.
This is a very "how to" book, so is really not meant to be casually read. The information provided is practical and well presented to make the process easier.
The author handles what some may consider a sensitive subject with honesty and straight-forward thinking. He also provides numerous tips and how-tos when it comes to handling and butchering several different kinds of animals.
While every hunter may not need this book, it sure provides a lot of help and suggestions. If you are going to be butchering a wide variety of animals (pigs, cows, deer, etc.), this is definitely the book for you.
This book gave me all the knowledge I needed to get the beast in the freezer. It provides clear information and a great step-by-step.
The book is really easy to follow - I was able to alternatively pick up the knife to do a step, pick up the book, and do the next step. The book now has blood on it, and the venison is successfully in the freezer.
I would suggest this for anyone that has an inkling towards being more self-sufficient.
No more wasting meat or spending big money by taking your wild game to a professional meat processor, all you need to know is right here.
I highly recommend this book, especially to hunters and outdoorsmen.
