Not explicitly. A few times near the middle and end of the book Jess mentions a wolf-dog stalking her camp. Bo and this dog fight and both retain injuries.

There is no sexual, physical or verbal abuse; however, Jess' father neglects her medical needs and insists that her physical limitations are "all in her head."

There isn't any substance abuse at all in this book, but it is touched on a few times that most of the main cast drinks. Carl, Jess's father, drinks a beer and gives Jess a drink with alcohol in it (she knows about it). Griff drinks a few times, and the cabin Jess finds is reported to have beer in the cabinets.

Squirrels, fish, rabbits, deer and much are hunted, killed, and eaten. Many animals ars hunted for food. Jess sees in a photograph a bear that her father and his friends killed. Her dad previously killed a Moose which she ate. A fox is killed by a wolf. That “wolf-dog” is killed by Jess in the end.

In addition to the death of Jess' dog, she has to hunt for food. The book describes her hunting, butchering, and eating multiple animals.

Jess' mother died in a car accident before the book started, but it's shown in flashbacks. Jess' father is shot and killed later in the book.
