The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game by Steve Rinella
Steve Rinella is one of the most eloquent yet relatable outdoor personalities of our time. If you’ve watched his TV show, Meat Eater, then you know what I’m saying, if you haven’t seen the show, then make the time (currently airing on Thursday nights on the Sportsman Channel).
Steve recently completed these two comprehensive books, with one dedicated to big game and the other to small game. There is literally something for everyone inside each book. I will say that if you’re a lifelong, diehard mule deer hunter from the Rockies, then you may not learn much about mule deer hunting. However, if you’ve never been Coues deer or Dall sheep hunting and dream of a new adventure, then Steve’s book will be a fantastic resource. Steve is a master of butchering and cooking wild game and both books have comprehensive sections on the subject.
