Combined with 130 detailed illustrations by Elayne Sears, the reader is provided with complete, step-by-step instructions.
Here is everything you need to know:

  • At what age to butcher an animal
  • How to kill, skin, slaughter, and butcher
  • How to dress out game in a field
  • Salting, smoking, and preserving
  • Tools, equipment, the setup
  • More than thirty recipes using all kinds of meat
