"There is no reference that celebrates the outdoor lifestyle and dedication to responsibly harvesting everything antlered like Buck, Buck, Moose. As a chef and outdoors enthusiast I have been searching for a complete guide from hunt to table. It has now arrived."--Bryan Voltaggio, Top Chef finalist, deer hunter and James Beard Award nominee
"I've lived on a cattle ranch for twenty years, so venison in all its forms has always been a bit of a mystery to me. For that reason, I devoured every page of Buck, Buck, Moose. Hank Shaw lives, sleeps, eats, and breathes venison--and his passion is palpable. From laying out the ancient connection between man and deer to presenting clear, hands-on instructions for handling and cooking venison, no stone is left unturned. Hank has absolutely outdone himself, and I know this book will be enjoyed by venison enthusiasts and novices alike."--Ree Drummond, New York Times Bestselling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks
"All of the serious hunters that I hang around with -- and I hang around with a lot of them -- use Hank Shaw's wild game recipes. His stuff is authentic, fail-safe, and well-written. They oughta give this man a Nobel prize."--Steve Rinella, author and host of "Meateater" on Sportsman Channel
