The first volume of Rinella's comprehensive "The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game, Volume 1: Big Game" hit the shelves August 18 and it is awesome.
The first volume in of Rinella's "The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game, Volume 1: Big Game" has been released and it is amazingly comprehensive.
"Volume 1: Big Game" is directed toward expert hunters and people looking to get into hunting in order to harvest their own meat.
Here is a break-down of the sections.
This is truly an encyclopedia for backcountry hunting, filled with incredible photography, simple infographics and extensive information.
Rinella is thorough while being extremely humble, making his work approachable and utilitarian. He doesn't expect the reader to be an expert and sticks with his colloquial writing which is refreshing coming from such a knowledgeable guy.
For example, he has blocks of explanations of seemingly simple hunting jargon that he talks through; "What the hell is parallax?"
He also has guest contributors in every chapter giving their two cents on the guns or bows they use, what's in their survival packs, their favorite treestand, judging species, baits, hunting the backcountry, and more.
Finally, the first volume edition of "Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game" goes into visual detail on how to field dress a variety of game and then how to cook your quarry.
All in all, "Volume 1" is the hunter's best friend. It just might take up a little space in your pack because you won't want to be without it.
