Book Review: The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game


Looking for a comprehensive book about hunting that covers everything from preparing for a hunt to butchering your own trophy? Then I’d recommend you buy a copy of Steven Rinella’s new book The Complete Guide.

I’ve enjoyed reading Rinella’s work over the years, so it was no surprise to me that the book is well written. What did surprise me is that it’s nearly 400 pages of excellent tips and techniques to turn the beginning hunter into a well-prepared outdoorsman. All for the amazingly low price of $15.62 on Amazon. It’s worth a lot more!

If you’re new to hunting, Rinella breaks down the basics of gear, scouting, and tactics. He not only covers rifle hunting, but also gets into the basics of archery as well. His advice is quite sound and he pulls from other hunters to strengthen the wealth of knowledge contained inside the covers.

For more seasoned hunters, there is a whole chapter dedicated to the vast amount of North American big game species that the author has hunted over his life. Most of us haven’t had the opportunity to chase Dall Sheep in the mountains of Alaska yet, so the book provides us with a nice introduction to mountain sheep hunting.

The book ends with several recipes for big game. Rinella hosts an excellent show on the Sportsman Channel called “Meateater”, which often shows him cooking wild game in unique, creative methods. If you’re like me, cooking isn’t your strong suit. So this book adds a lot of value by doubling as a wild game cookbook.

Whether you are looking for a hunting book, survival guide or a wild game butchering/cooking book, check out the new Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game. #CelebrateMan
