Great Hunters and their Trophy Rooms Vol 7 Great Hunters and their Trophy Rooms Vol 7

Their Trophy Rooms and Collections
2013 Long Beach, 218pp, color photos, 9x12, hardcover, dj

The modern era of the trophy room, as depicted in this 7th volume in the Great Hunters series, has brought us a cornucopia of rooms that are sometimes overwhelming to the senses. What do you make, for example, of the collection of Dick and Mary Cabela, which includes a pool and a library as well as acres of re-created habitat filled with life-size mounted animals? The collection takes up the entire house, which is more like a hotel than a private home.

As has been the case from the start of this series, we highlight only interesting, tasteful, superlative trophy rooms. Each time we complete a volume we think there are no more rooms to discover, but every time we find more, and many even greater than the last.

As before, we have rooms from all over the world: Canada, Europe, and the USA. Besides private collections, we have managed to find several European hunting museum collections, two of which are housed in ancient buildings in France and showcase the rich hunting traditions of the French and their vast colonial possessions in Asia and Africa. Then there is an Alpine house in Germany that features the collection of Günter Wulff, which was converted to a museum upon his death.

The room of George D’Aoust has a life-size giraffe as well as numerous dioramas of gamefish as well as a few hundred life-size mammals. The collection of Texan Mike Simpson, a Weatherby Award Winner, was moved to a new location and completely redone with hardwood floors and natural stone as well as very interesting guest bedrooms. Another hunter, Doug Stromberg, has a great many mounts and an entire skeleton of a brown bear, which makes for a very interesting change of scenery. The room of Mark Dickson is serene with wooden floors and wood paneling and features a delightful collection of decoys as well as big-game trophies and a very well appointed wine cellar next door. (We are waiting to be invited!) You will not be disappointed in this volume, which, like its predecessors, features some of the best trophy collections in the world.

Great Hunters and their Trophy Rooms Vol 6 Great Hunters and their Trophy Rooms Vol 6

Their Trophy Rooms and Collections
2011 Long Beach, 202pp, profuse color photos, 9x12, hardcover, dj

In the course of creating Great Hunters 5, we unearthed so many great additional rooms that it was impossible to accommodate them all in one book. So we were able to proceed with Great Hunters 6 much faster than we had initially thought. As all of our customers know, we do not take mere trophy rooms—we seek out only superlative rooms, wherever they may be found worldwide. Each time we finish a volume in this series, we sincerely believe we will not find another volume of superb rooms, but, incredibly, we do, a real cap in the feather to our research staff. As we have said before, many of these rooms are natural history museums rather than trophy rooms, and indeed quite a few of them are open to the public.

In Great Hunters 6 you will see: Soudy Golabchi’s remodeled mountain of life-size sheep mounts from around the world; Jose Sodiro’s museum-quality trophies from South America, Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and all Oceania; two superb French hunting museums that also represent French culture; Richard Pierce’s trophy room, which is so big it occupies more pages in our book than any room we’ve ever showcased; German hunter Gunter Wulff’s fantastic collection showcased in an Alpine house called the Wulff Jagdmuseum, which can be viewed by the public; and Hungarian hunter Bella Hidvegi’s collection divided by continent in massive rooms. In addition, there is J. Y. Jones’s sheep mountain and full-size mounts (including a polar bear), which are highlights of his rustically inspired trophy rooms. Well-known Mexican hunter Jesus Yuren has built an entirely new home to encompass his extensive trophy collection—he has more sheep alone than could fit into three large rooms. All in all, there is a total of twenty-two rooms featured in this book.

This series is universally regarded by big-game hunters as the best books ever produced on trophy collections, and Great Hunters 6 is our latest and best. We stand by our longstanding promise: We will either publish a superb book with superlative rooms, or we will publish no book at all.
