This book makes a great gift for new and veteran taxidermists, hunters, outsoorspeople, bushcrafters, survivalists, campers, and cabin enthusiasts. Although this book represents thought from a former time, it also reveals much about the rich history of taxidermy and natural history study of animals via specimens, and many of the tips, tricks, and discussions are still relevant for study today!
