Two books by the Boone and Crockett Club continue to collect national recognition for excellence in publishing, beating out competitors from all genres.
Boone and Crockett Club's Complete Guide to Hunting Whitetails and the Club's first cookbook, Wild Gourmet: Naturally Healthy Game, Fish and Fowl Recipes for Everyday Chefs, were recently honored in national book competitions. The cookbook also received another prestigious publishing award earlier this year.
"Both publications have proven popular with reviewers and buyers, and these awards are icing on the cake. It's gratifying because these book competitions weren't just for outdoor titles. We finished ahead of books from all genres, so that's a showing of respect that all hunters can take to heart," said Boone and Crockett publications director Julie Tripp.
She added that the books are essential for anyone interested in hunting or processing and cooking your own venison, as well as other game meats.
