Many hunters commission artists to carve an image replicating a successful hunt on their gun or rifle which is then displayed to commemorate their catch. This type of woodcarving can be very lucrative and now carvers of all levels can learn this process from start to finish with this new book by Bill Janney.

Bill Janney has appeared on PBS's American Woodshop and is a featured demonstrator at Cabela's, a national hunting store. He lives in Middletown, Ohio.
