You'll find detailed information on how best to treat these various species in the kitchen, how to select them in the market, as well as how to pluck, clean and hang wild birds. Shaw's global yet approachable recipes include basics such as Roast Pheasant and Buttermilk Fried Rabbit; international classics like Tuscan Hare Ragu, French Rabbit a la Moutarde, Mexican Turkey Tamales with Pumpkin, and General Tso's Pheasant; as well as unique dishes such as Roast Woodcock Michigan.

New York Times bestselling author and star of A&E's Duck Dynasty, Willie Robertson, teams up with William Doyle, the bestselling coauthor of American Gun, to share the history of America's most well known hunters.

American Hunter is an amazing compilation of the history of America's greatest hunters. Based on the colorful personalities of powerful men and women, this book begins with the Plains Indians and moves through legendary hunters like Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Kit Carson, Buffalo Bill, Teddy Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, Lyndon Johnson, and of course, Duck Dynasty's Robertson family. Also included are the histories of American fox, rabbit, deer, squirrel, duck, goose, and big-game hunting, as well as action biographies of classic hunting weapons.

Author Willie Robertson, famed hunter of Duck Dynasty and Duck Commander, lends his voice to share this amazing collection of true stories to tell around the campfire after a long day's hunt.

As Teddy Roosevelt put it, "The virility, clear-sighted common sense and resourcefulness of the American people is due to the fact that we have been a nation of hunters and frequenters of the forest, plains, and waters." It's about time we honor American hunters with a book that tells their incredible stories of skill, courage, and survival.

American Hunter is the perfect book for everyone who enjoys sweeping tales of American history and for those who love hunting, sport shooting, and wide open spaces.

Hunting from Home
A Year Afield in the Blue Ridge Mountains
1st Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 0393049159

A vivid rendering of the four seasons on a Shenandoah Valley farm and in the Virginia mountains. Christopher Camuto has been praised for writing "with the clear-sightedness and imaginative reachboth inward and outwardof a poet" (Verlyn Klinkenborg). In "Hunting from Home," Camuto takes the reader through a year of intense experiences: hunting grouse with his setter through snowbound forests in winter; wading trout streams in spring; closely observing birds and wildlife through summer; exploring the backcountry, cutting wood, and hunting deer in autumn. He takes seriouslyand joyously Thoreau's injunction to practice "the discipline of looking always at what is to be seen." Camuto writes incisively about the hunter's paradoxical love of the game he pursues; but he also hunts in the broadest sense possible, searching out and witnessing the life of the things he lovesbrook trout and black bear, hawks and warblerswith the hope of sharing the pleasures and preoccupations of a "border life" lived, with deep satisfaction, in the shadow of the Blue Ridge. 4 b/w illustrations.

The Identification of Firearms: From Ammunition Fired Therein with an Analysis of Legal Authorities
The Identification of Firearms
From Ammunition Fired Therein with an Analysis of Legal Authorities
Paperback      ISBN: 163220276x

The 1930s was a decade that provided impressive breakthroughs in the field of forensic ballistics, or firearms identification. Following the St. Valentine's Day Massacre of 1929, where ballistic expert Calvin Goddard's testimony brought attention to the relatively new field, several forensic ballistic books were published. Among these were Burrard's The Identification of Firearms and Forensic Ballistics and Hatcher's Textbook of Firearms Investigations, Identification, and Evidence. Burrard introduced forensic examination to the British judicial system; Hatcher applied his considerable knowledge of firearms and ammunition to weapons' design, manufacture, and testing.

Gunthers' The Identification of Firearms combined the approaches of these volumes into a new book that emphasized both the painstaking scientific methodology vital to firearms identification, complete with ballistics photographs, and its practical use by analyses of several legal cases where firearms identification was used. These include the infamous Sacco-Vanzetti case, the first in American legal history where forensic ballistics played a very prominent role in courtroom proceedings. The Gunther brothers utilized their respective legal and military experience to provide a comprehensive reference volume that is noteworthy for those interested in law enforcement or ballistics as well as gun enthusiasts.

In Theory and Practice
Hardcover      ISBN: 1510719172
Collecting, maintaining, and shooting classic firearms.

Vintage gun expert Diggory Hadoke (author of Vintage Guns for the Modern Shot and The British Boxlock Gun & Rifle) has now produced a major work on the subject for which he is best known: the hammer gun. With a fascinating mixture of historical analysis, practical application, and personal reflection, he makes a robust case for the Victorian hammer gun as the finest sporting gun available today, just as it was a century ago.

The reader will discover all that is worth knowing about the subject: how the guns were devised, crafted, and used, how they were perfected, and how they work. Modern applications are given equal weight to historical ones, and subjects such as the selection of suitable ammunition, stripping, refurbishing, and customizing will prove invaluable to anyone contemplating taking a hammer gun into the field and using it as they would a modern gun.

This is the fullest and most practical account of the development of the breech-loading center-fire hammer gun and its many variations yet written, with a guide for owners and collectors that will prove invaluable when buying and maintaining their guns.

The Hunter's Haunch
What You Dona't Know about Deer and Venison That Will Change the Way You Cook
Hardcover      ISBN: 1629146617
A new way to look at hunting and deer meat that anyone who owns a venison cookbook must read

Is a doe better eating than a buck? Is hanging really necessary? Why can't venison be aged? Will soaking in milk make that gamy taste go away? The Hunter's Haunch provides straightforward and fascinating answers for these and other questions that every hunter-cook has faced, delving into myths, folklore, hunting history, and modern culinary science in order to explain why certain techniques still work and others don't.

Many wild game cookbooks offer recipes for venison chili, venison burgers, venison sausage, and other solutions that make tough and gamy meat edible. By contrast, The Hunter's Haunch aims to rethink the entire process so that rescuing tough meat never becomes necessary in the first place. Focusing on the relationship of the hunt to the rhythms of nature, The Hunter's Haunch examines the deer as a living creature in the wild, showing how the skills of the hunter affect its treatment in the kitchen, and ultimately how the venison tastes when served at the table.

Covering the history of deer hunting, practical lessons in game anatomy, and indispensable tips for dressing and prep, The Hunter's Haunch is an essential read for anyone who hopes to transform their quarry into the best possible venison.
