- Contains advice on everything from equipment and methods to butchery and processing
This book takes the increasingly popular sport of woodland stalking beyond the basics to examine in detail the techniques and tactics required in order to achieve success. Graham Downing discusses the suitability of different calibers for various purposes and the finer points of accessories such as riflescopes, moderators, and bipods. An in-depth section on hunting methods is packed with practical detail and tips about successful hunting on foot and from high seats, plus using calls and organizing a team cull. Next, Downing explains carcass recovery and care, building or setting up a home deer larder, and home smoking and sausage making.
