A Complete Course in Hunting, Dressing, and Butchering

Even if you've never hunted before, you can acquire the skills you need to fill your freezer with local, healthful venison. Author Jackson Landers knows the challenges of taking up hunting as an adult and gives aspiring hunters the knowledge they need to safely and responsibly bag a whitetail — good for 40 pounds or more of fresh venison.

Everything Beginners Need to Know:
* Learning your local regulations
* Choosing your weapon and ammunition
* Understanding whitetail anatomy so you can predict behavior
* Finding good places to hunt
* Shooting to kill and preparing for a possible follow-up shot
* Dressing, butchering, and packaging your deer
* Cooking with venison

Synopsis:

Hunting deer is the most inexpensive, environmentally friendly way to acquire organic, grass-fed meat. Even if you've never held a gun before, author Jackson Landers can show you how to supplement your food supply with venison taken near your home. He addresses everything a new hunter needs to know: how to choose the correct rifle and ammunition, how to hunt effectively and safely, and what to do if something goes wrong. He includes chapters on field dressing and butchering after the kill, recipes for using the meat, and a chapter on the politics and psychology of hunting. Whether you hunt to be more self-sufficient, to eat the safest and most nutritious meat possible, to protect the environment, or to save money, this book is the perfect guide.
