Updated on 5-8-2013.
Put bluntly; killing and butchering animals is not a pleasant business. Anyone who has hunted or helped slaughter on a farm can attest to this. You just have to jump in and do it.Ironically, or perhaps most fittingly, this book was written by a veterinarian. I had a couple of chuckles about that fact.This is a very "how to" book, so is really not meant to be casually read. The information provided is practical and well presented to make the process easier.The author handles what some may consider a sensitive subject with honesty and straight-forward thinking. He also provides numerous tips and how-tos when it comes to handling and butchering several different kinds of animals.While every hunter may not need this book, it sure provides a lot of help and suggestions. If you are going to be butchering a wide variety of animals (pigs, cows, deer, etc.), this is definitely the book for you.
