On Wild Hogs and Javelinas. Taylor.

Hogs have overrun America: They are found in the middle of our biggest cities and they cause untold millions of damage to farmlands and manicured gardens alike. Where did all these swine come from and how did they land up on American shores where they do not belong? The history of the hog in America is a long one that dates all the way back to the period of Columbus. Since that time no large feral animal has more successfully established itself and none has endured more attempts by the hand of man in controlling its numbers than the hog.
The author gives us a comprehensive history of the feral hog, where they occur, how and with what to hunt them, how to trap them if they cannot be shot, what to be careful of (plenty!), and what methods to use to help you get your hog. There is also a comprehensive section on the javelina, a very distant cousin of the feral hog. A thorough and all-inclusive appendix covers a remarkably broad array of hog and javelina facts, stats and terminology, and further reading in case swine fever has struck you! This excellent book will help you better understand these swine, how to outwit them, and how they will likely outwit you! Hog-hunting stories and recipes are included as well.
This is an animal we will have to live with no matter what and will likely be around as long as rats and coyotes, which is forever. This book will help you hunt them . . . or to cope.

Bell of Africa. Bell

BELL OF AFRICA

by W. D. M. Bell
Walter Bell was an extraordinary person, and this was clear even when he was a child. He was born in 1880 near Edinburgh, and by the time he was six, he had lost both parents. When he was ten, he took a pair of muzzleloading dueling pistols, a watch, and a few pennies and set off for America to go "bison shooting"! This scheme failed spectacularly when the stationmaster grabbed him as he was about to board the train, but other adventures soon followed. Never interested in school, he was, however, consumed by the writings of Gordon Cummings and thoughts of hunting elephants. He was not quite a teenager when he enlisted on a sailing ship in hopes of reaching Africa . . . but landed up in Tasmania. By the time he was fourteen his exasperated family bundled him off to a boarding school in Germany in the hopes of getting some sort of education in him, but once there he built a rough sort of kayak and managed to get to the coast via the river system and eventually back home by taking a steamer and trains. Finally his siblings relented and let him go to Africa. This was obviously no ordinary boy!

Not even seventeen years old, he arrived in Mombasa with little more than a .303 single-shot rifle. This initial foray proved unsuccessful and unprofitable, so he took a steamer back to England and arrived home penniless. Refitted and a bit wiser, he then sought his destiny in the Yukon, mining for gold and providing game for the camps in the Klondike. Again penniless after having been cheated by a partner, he enlisted in the Canadian army to fight in the Boer War, which would also provide a means of returning to Africa. Now finally all elements fell in place: more wisdom through maturity, some funds, the right rifles, and a great deal of determination saw him make his first safari for ivory. Like a tiger after its first kill, he developed a taste for elephant hunting, and he subsequently made what are generally considered the greatest ivory-hunting expeditions ever conducted by a single hunter.

Bell began writing Bell of Africa, his third and last book, in the late 1940s but he died before it was completed. Col. Townsend Whelan took over the editing and finished the book, which contains some revised sections of Bell's earlier books but is, for the most part, all new material. In addition, this book contains Bell's own original drawings that depict scenes from his youth as well as his much-praised sketches of where to place brain, heart, and lung shots on elephants. These drawings were for a long time the only true anatomical studies of the position of an elephant's brain. Possibly the great secret to Bell's success-besides his extraordinary skill with a rifle-was his ability to think like an African. Bell was so good at understanding the mentality of the Africans he hunted with and encountered that he was able to get them to cooperate on his ivory-hunting expeditions to an astonishing degree. This clearly shines through in his books.
There may be men who have led an adventurous a life, but not many of them were as daring and courageous as Walter Maitland Dalrymple Bell!

My Main Obsession. Guardia Vazquez.

Ricardo Guardia Vázquez has hunted around the world and in some fascinating places. He lives in Central America and was fortunate to have hunted jaguars on numerous occasions, both in his own “backyard” and in South America. He could even be called “cat crazy,” as he has multiple hunts for ocelots, pumas, leopards, and a lion, which he has noted in his game diaries.


But his hunts did not stop there; he came north and hunted in the Lower Forty-Eight and Canada for Rocky Mountain goat, black bear, grizzly, caribou, moose, mule deer, whitetail, and more. In Africa, besides lion and leopard, he shot an elephant and buffalo as well as sable, kudu, and numerous other antelopes on multiple safaris.
His stories are vignettes out of a life of hunting over more than four decades, and whether he pursues tropical whitetail and jaguar in the sweltering Central American jungle, gemsbok and leopard in the dry and dusty semideserts of Africa, or moose and grizzly in the cold tundra of North America, his stories are sure to entertain.

Tigrero!. Siemel.

Sasha Siemel was a figure of monumental importance on the American hunting-world stage of the 1930s,'40s,'50s, and '60s. He was unique not only as a hunter but also as a man. He is the only known white man to have fought the fierce jungle jaguars of Brazil with a spear, and as a man, he made a stand for decency in everything he did. This was a man who believed in the ideals of freedom, adventure, honor, family, home, and courage-ideals he upheld throughout his life.

He was so famous in his day that he appeared in advertisements, cartoons, Hollywood films, and even in a full-feature article in The New York Times. That NYT article included multiple photos of his bag of many jaguars and other game! (Can you imagine the NYT today saying anything positive about shooting a coyote?) He also wrote a very long piece for National Geographic in 1954. Again, can you imagine NG allowing a hunter today to write of his exploits? His fight against Assassino, the name given to the much-feared man-eating jaguar that killed his mentor, was published in Life and Reader's Digest in the mid-1950s. From 1930 to 1952, Sasha was featured in Time magazine seven times. He published his autobiography, Tigrero! in 1953.
Alexander "Sasha" Siemel hailed from Latvia, which he left when he was sixteen to seek an adventurous life abroad. He first landed in Chicago, where he learned English, and then he immigrated to Argentina to join his brother. Once in South America he found a job as a mechanic, but he was soon drawn to the vast wilderness of the Mato Grosso. His dream was to become a jaguar hunter in the endless grasslands and marshes of the Pantanal, where big game flourished and where courteous Brazilian ranchers pursued rugged lives.
He sought out and eventually found Joaquim Guató, a native reported to be an expert tigrero, or jaguar hunter. Guató fought jaguars armed only with a spear, and he passed on his knowledge to Sasha before he himself was killed by the man-eating Assassino. Sasha proved a highly capable apprentice, first hunting jaguars with a rifle and later with a spear. Over time he became the most successful hunter of jaguars in the history of South America, and it is reported that in his long career as a jaguar hunter, Sasha Siemel engaged in thirty-one victorious spear fights against these ferocious beasts.
In the early 1930s, Sasha realized that he wanted more than just a solitary existence, and he felt the need to tell others about the Mato Grosso and his experiences there. So, when he was in his early forties, he began touring the USA extensively. He held lectures and presentations, and at one of those talks he met and eventually married Edith Bray, an American from Philadelphia. He continued to lead expeditions and hunters into the "green hell" of South America. Among these were Theodore Roosevelt Jr., Roosevelt's nephew Kermit, Julian Duguid, Mamerto Urriolagoitia (President of Bolivia), dignitaries, and business titans. Sasha Siemel continued his life of hunting, leading expeditions, and giving lectures well into the 1960s . . . long after most people would have retired. (He died in 1970 at the age of eighty.)
The original book was short on photos that highlighted Sasha Siemel's exciting jaguar adventures and his entrepreneurial activities. This revised, expanded edition was made possible through the generosity of the Siemel children in loaning their family archive to Safari Press; this archive allowed Safari Press to include in this new edition considerable new material as well as a large selection of new photos and period illustrations. (There was so much material that we had to leave a lot lying on the cutting floor.)
It is often said that Mother Nature did not create the wildlife of South America with the big-game hunter in mind, but there is one exception to this adage-and that is the jaguar. In making the jaguar, Mother Nature made up in spades for what the continent lacks in big game (when compared to Africa). No other large cat on earth is as difficult to hunt as the jaguar, and there is likely not another hunt as dangerous or as exciting as hunting this great feline with a spear. Sasha Siemel hunted the mighty jaguar for nearly fifty years. Tigrero! tells the tale of his extraordinary hunting career.

The Italian Vetterli Rifle. Wilsey

The author of the earlier work entitled The Italian Vetterli System, published by the Royal Armouries, has produced an enhanced volume containing more than three times the content of the original. The Italian Vetterli was in service for over 40 years, and the author describes how it was developed as a long rifle, a short rifle, a cavalry and a police carbine, in single-shot form and later adapted for a variety of magazine feeds as the Vetterli-Vitali, Vetterli-Bertoldo and Vetterli-Ferracciù. The conversions from 10.35 mm to 6.5 mm calibres and subsequently to a .22 training carbine are also covered in detail. Contains new information on the arms factories that manufactured them. This new book expands on the history and use of the weapon on active service in some of the less well-known campaigns in Europe and Africa including Ethiopia, Somaliland, Libya, Ireland, Russia, China, Turkey and the Spanish Civil War. This book will appeal to both the firearms collector and the military historian. The wealth of research and detail fills a gap in the history of early breech-loading military rifles.

Sharps Firearms: Metallic Cartridge Firearms and Model 1874 Sporting Rifles . Marcot, Paxton

Vol 2
This is the first completed volume of the four volume set. It contains ten chapters, starting with the early and developmental Sharps metallic cartridge firearms and ending with chapters on buffalo hunting on the frontier and the legendary Sharps buffalo rifles and the hunters that used them. An extraordinary book for the seasoned gun collector as well as the researcher, historian and astute book collector.
This four volume set will be the definitive books on the Sharps rifles and carbines. The final chapter provides even more context to the story by presenting notes concerning 199 hunters who corresponded with the Sharps company. The amount of information regarding each hunter varies from short extracts from letters they sent the firm, to full biographies that include photographs. From the standpoint of collectors the most important aspect of these remarks is that in most instances they include details of the rifles that were ordered together with their serial numbers. From a broader perspective the accounts are of significance in that they demonstrate the disparate nature of the men involved. Every strata of American society was represented from Civil War veterans to recently arrived immigrants, and youths, eager to make a mark in life. While some were extremely successful, others did not survive the experience.

This volume contains not only the military pistols and edged weapons of the British military but also those of British India, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. The author has also included those British military pistols used by other countries. An outstanding new reference book.
