“I recognized that Michael Hunter knows what he is talking about the minute I opened this book. Hunter is the kind of guy–and the kind of work–that you get when you combine passion, creativity, inventiveness, and elbow grease. This book makes me hungry, and Michael Hunter makes me proud to be a hunter and angler.”
–Steven Rinella, outdoorsman, host of the TV series and podcast MeatEater, and author The MeatEater Fish and Game Cookbook
