The Provider cookbook is about sharing the passion of living off the land, growing a garden, being a hunter and gatherer, becoming a conservationist, being a backyard BBQ enthusiast, and developing a respect for animals and Mother Nature and passing that respect down from generation to generation. Our cookbook is a great resource for people wanting to become a Provider and learn ways to prepare your bounty of wild game for family and friends.

There will be over 80 delicious wild game and fish recipes collected from friends and family from the authors Chad Belding and Chad Mendes. Photography by Tom Rassuchine.
