How to hunt deer for the beginner, what kind of gear you need to hunt deer, where do you hunt deer? Author Jackson Landers., author of The Beginner's Guide to Hunting Deer for Food (Beginner's Guide To... (Storey))
talks with Eric about hunting deer for food.
"Hunting deer is the most inexpensive, environmentally friendly way to acquire organic, grass-fed meat. Even if you’ve never held a gun before, author Jackson Landers can show you how to supplement your food supply with venison taken near your home. He addresses everything a new hunter needs to know: how to choose the correct rifle and ammunition, how to hunt effectively and safely, and what to do if something goes wrong. He includes chapters on field dressing and butchering after the kill, recipes for using the meat, and a chapter on the politics and psychology of hunting. Whether you hunt to be more self-sufficient, to eat the safest and most nutritious meat possible, to protect the environment, or to save money, this book is the perfect guide."
Deer Hunting can be an emotional topic for some of us. My thinking here was to allow you all to get into the head of a hunter who is very grounded. Jackson hunts deer to put meat on the table for his family, teaches deer hunting classes, and has been featured several times in the New York Times, and has been hosted by Slow Food groups to talk about deer hunting, and how to cook venison.
