Dennis Biswell is an outdoor enthusiast and enjoys a variety of outdoor activities. He has hunted and fished all his life, and prefers hunting big game with a traditional muzzleloader or crossbow over modern firearms. Dennis processes all his wild game and uses as much of the animal as possible. He’s written articles on tanning hides, hunting, processing deer, and other outdoor skills in MOTHER EARTH NEWS and Grit magazine. He’s also given presentations at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIRS on processing deer, tanning hides, creating patterns, sewing home-tanned leather, and outdoor survival skills.
