Since I started work on Backyard Deer Hunting: Converting deer to dinner for pennies per pound, two years ago, hunger statistics for the U.S. have increased from 36 to 50 million families – many of whom struggle to put even one meal on the table each day. These figures are co-increasing with unemployment which now stands at about 15 million and is projected to rise even further over the next two years.
While my book will certainly not solve this problem, it can contribute to the solution by explaining, in a thorough manner, how to hunt, process, cook and eat some of the nation’s abundant deer and other wild game and even salvage road kills for human and pet use.
If you wish to help alleviate this problem there are three things to do. First, call your librarian and suggest that local libraries stock this book.
Then at least those who might be inclined to hunt or utilize road kill will have access to good information. Secondly, you might give copies to this book to homeless shelters, reading rooms and other such organizations. Third. If you hunt, give one of your underemployed friends the book and offer to take him hunting. Several states have mentoring programs that allow people to try-out hunting before they take their hunter safety course.
