    Never seen a paperback version, but "The old man" or "Grandad" have worked out well for me. There's some hardcase bits in both versions, and some sad bits especially at the end of "Grandad". Maybe "Good Mates" will work out well for you.
    Enough of the humour, I'm yet to find a book that'll help. Failing a book, YouTube is probably your best search. That and practice, goats are usually plentiful in most areas and share a very similar make up to deer.

    I understand many find this book pretty handy to have around. I learned a shitload and refer to it on the regular. Red Deer in New Zealand, Roger Lentle Frank Saxton - Shop Online for Books in NZ

    +1 Great book.

    Though reading it as a newbie there's a lot more in there than was really necessary to get me started, but that makes it worthwhile returning to.

    There was a bit more than needed as a noob ... But the book had / has legs .. One of those ones you find yourself returning to time and again for a snippet of info

    From the field dressing and butchery angle, I reckon Darren Meates book is the way to go. I just took it back to the library yesterday and cant recall the exact title, at the moment.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    I have that book too Josh and agree it is very informative. Hans has a different, almost scientific aproach to hunting at times. He applys a lot of logic too.
