This book is different.
This time, you really can judge a book by its cover. When you pick up a copy of Gut It. Cut It. Cook It. : The
Deer Hunter's Guide to Processing and Preparing Venison, you'll notice immediately that there's something
different about it. You can actually open it and lay it out flat while you're working.
And once you open Gut It. Cut It. Cook It., you'll see that it's really different. It's the only book out there that
passes the "how-to" test. Here's what we mean. Without an experienced friend looking over your shoulder,
could you open your book, open your knife, and confidently begin gutting and cutting?
For this book (and only this book), the answer is YES.
There are already plenty of books out there about hunting, and there are already plenty of cookbooks. If you
like, buy a few of those books, too. But there's a lot that has to happen in between making your shot and
making your dinner. That's where Gut It. Cut It. Cook It. comes in. We're going to:
Show you the step-by-step details. We'll give you supportive tips and guidance at every step of the way.
Focus on the details that matter most. Other books only devote a small fraction of their pages to the
practical details of field-dressing, skinning, and butchering. This book is different; that's where we'll spend
nearly all our time. No recipes, no hunting stories, and no history of deer hunting over the last 50,000 years.
Begin at the beginning. We'll walk you through the important preparation steps that you'll want to take care
of before you head out into the woods.
Tell you and show you. Along with 256 pages of simple, clear explanations, we've included over 200 big,
full-color photos that show you how to complete each step.
So study up ahead of time, and feel free to enjoy Gut It. Cut It. Cook It. when you're relaxing by the fireside in
your easy chair. Ah, yes... A warm fire, a cold drink, and a good book. What could be finer?
On the other hand.... We think you'll enjoy this book most when you have a knife in one hand and a deer
carcass in the other. We've written a book that's meant to get used and get bloody.
