Deadly Encounters. Boddington Deadly Encounters. Boddington

Incidents of hunters, trackers, PHs, and innocent bystanders seriously getting "hammered" and not infrequently killed by a dangerous-game animal crop up each year, and the trend toward the hunter becoming the prey seems to be clearly on the increase. This fact stands in strange counterpoint to what is actually happening in the international big-game hunting world, for it's a fact that there are fewer and fewer dangerous animals that can be hunted today. Tigers, Asian rhinos, Asian elephants, gaurs, and many other dangerous game animals are now consigned to our hunting past, for no legal hunting for them has existed for decades.
There are still enough dangerous game animals left, however, for people to get scratched, bitten, or stomped regularly. African lions are still hunted, even if far less often than before. African elephants are still locally plentiful, but far fewer of them are sport hunted now than ever before. And as for African rhinos, the black species is almost not hunted and the white variety is considered far less dangerous than its cousin. Even so, accidents happen, and people die or are maimed when a lion, an elephant, or a rhino decides to take an instant dislike to you.
Bears, both in Asia and North America, enjoy taking a bite out of humans on a pretty much a regular basis. In Africa, hardly a year goes by in the safari industry when at least one PH, tracker, or hunter gets killed by a Cape buffalo, the perennial meanie of the African bush. Leopards have always been plentiful in Africa and are no less dangerous now than they were thirty years ago. When hunting hippos and crocodiles, the best advice may best be summed up by the statement, “Be cautious when you approach an African river!” When hunting "feral" animals such as water buffalo and swine, "What you don't know about them can kill you!"

Boddington has done a masterful job of unearthing the facts and sometimes gory details of what happens when a nasty with sharp teeth, strong claws, blunt hoofs, or colossal strength decides to close in on a hunter and see the business through to a bloody, pulpy end. His stories of hunts gone wrong include wild lions or those found in enclosures; bull elephants in musth or cranky cows on the defensive; leopards who do not take kindly to being shot; bears-no matter what size or color; and "tame" water buffaloes that have taken over the neighborhood and now see humans as intruders. Boddington discusses and dissects the incidents to tell you why something went wrong so that you, the hunter, won't make the same mistake. Even though this is not an overly sensational tome with imaginary critters crunching on human bones like Rice Crispies behind each rock, we venture a guess that after reading the stories in Boddington's new book that the next time you go on a hunt you just might step out of your tent a little more cautiously.

Unquenchable Spirit. Shatzko. Unquenchable Spirit. Shatzko.

Shatzko has had his share excitement while hunting. The following is a passage in his book on his polar bear hunt in the Arctic when the ice floe he was camped on broke loose. "In the morning, with the last wisps of the windstorm dying, Frankie got out of the tent first. 'You guys need to come see this.' There was certain urgency in his voice that had all of us scrambling out of the tent. At first, I didn't comprehend what I was seeing. The hump of land that had been a mile away last night looked as if it was more like ten miles away this morning. We all walked out toward what used be the pressure ridge. We were looking at open water. The ice, eight feet thick, had broken cleanly away. We stood on a shear ice cliff, staring at the raging Arctic water eight feet below. Our camp had broken away and had become a makeshift boat. It was being smashed with all the ocean's considerable fury. Below us certain death waited patiently. . . ."
Shatzko's hunting adventures in North America form the basis of the book. There he has hunted moose, caribou, mule deer, and, most of all, lots of sheep. Shatzko comes from a hunting family and his father and daughter feature in the pages of his hunts. Early on Shatzko realized that if he trained his horses, he would have access to the most remote wild places of British Columbia, and, so, he sets out to do just that. From the very beginning of his hunting exploits, he outfits himself, with only his own horses for companions; by far this takes more preparation, hard work, courage, determination, and resilience than going on a guided hunt. After hunting as much as possible in Canada, he tries his luck in Mexico, the United States, and two hunts in Central Asia for ibex and Marco Polo argali. But guides also feature prominently in these pages, especially the legendary Canadian Arctic outfitter Fred Webb.
All in all Shatzko has taken eleven trophies that qualify for the Boone & Crockett record book, no mean accomplishment for a hunter who is still a young man. In the introduction, the author says "I started this journey as a young man, who hunted strictly for sustenance, and I became a man who considers the challenge of hunting for trophy animals to be at the very core of who I am. This passion for the hunt is in every chapter." We could not say it any better ourselves. A great read.

Africa's Most Dangerous,  Doctari Robertson. Africa's Most Dangerous, Doctari Robertson.

Kevin "Doctari" Robertson is one of Africa’s best-known authors and the originator of the idea of showing a “ghost view” of the vital organs on African big game. His books have sold tens of thousands of copies. In this brand-new book with all original materials, Doctari has produced the most comprehensive guide to shot placement for the African buffalo. He talks about his favorite calibers, what constitutes a good trophy, and when a buffalo should not be shot. He talks of hunting the cow buffalo, equally as dangerous as a bull, and he gives us his views and insights into various rifle types and bullets. Many books on African hunting profess to deal with it all, but Robertson focuses on only one subject—buffalo. In fact he deals with only one subspecies of the African buffalo—the Cape or southern buffalo, the largest of the subspecies and the one with the meanest and most ferocious reputation. This book, his first since he wrote his best seller, The Perfect Shot, over ten years ago, has it all: the African tracker, bow hunting, caliber choices, picking the right bullet (a very interesting subject and well covered), selecting rifle sights, trophy evaluation, anatomical features, differences between bulls and cows in the field, distribution and natural history, hunting accessories, and more. All of it has been illustrated with some of the most magnificent Cape buffalo photographs ever seen by world-class wildlife photographer Catherine Robertson. No African hunter will want to be without this book.

Buffalo II!  Boddington. Buffalo II! Boddington.

Craig Boddington is today’s best-known writer on hunting in Africa, and of all the animals he has pursued over the last forty-odd years, it is the African buffalo that has called him back to that great continent again and again. No hunter alive today has accomplished all that Craig has in his pursuit of the African buffalo. He has successfully hunted and shot all varieties of African buffaloes—Cape, Nile, Central African, West African, and dwarf forest buffalo. Craig’s dedicated nature is such that it took him five hunts to get a dwarf forest buffalo, and several of these were single-species dedicated hunts. Yes, a dwarf forest buffalo can be that hard to get!

Not only is his experience with African buffalo varieties incomparable, but he has also used more calibers, bullets, and various types of firearms and sights in his pursuit of buffaloes than any other person alive. Period! As for numbers shot, suffice to say that unless you are a professional hunter with multiple decades of hunting buffalo under your belt, you will not have shot as many. Do not go into the field without reading what happens when a buffalo gets a bee in his bonnet and comes looking for you.
Buffalo hunting in modern Africa has evolved tremendously in the last twenty years, and the changes have only accelerated in the last ten years. It was not that long ago that Mozambique had almost no huntable buffaloes and Uganda was closed to hunting. Nowadays Mozambique is possibly the largest buffalo destination in Africa, and as for Uganda, it has a vibrant program with high-quality Nile buffaloes shot each year. South Africa twenty years ago had very few buffaloes, so hunting for them was restricted; today this country is on its way to becoming a serious buffalo destination. Boddington has hunted in all these places and many more since he wrote Buffalo!, and since much has changed, both in terms of destinations, firearms, and ballistics, an update was urgently needed. Buffalo II! is the answer.
In his new book, Craig gives great information on hunting “swamp buffalo” from Mozambique, and he discusses the importance of buffalo sustainability for generations to come—the how, where, and why of looking for an aged buffalo bull with hard bosses. He also shares his experience with a true, full-blown, pressing-it-home, you-or-him buffalo charge, which is—thankfully—actually very rare. Until recently Craig had never experienced one, so his recollection is firsthand and vivid. The buffalo charge Craig faced was unprovoked, quick, and nearly lethal.
In other chapters Craig discusses where to look today to find that optimum buffalo hunt. Besides chapters on tracking, rifles, and calibers, there are great anecdotes and stories in Buffalo II! Want to hunt buffalo? Be prepared before you go by learning about buffalo hunting in every nook and cranny in twenty-first-century Africa. Buffalo II! is simply the best resource available for planning your first, second, or next buffalo safari.

Great African Trophies,  Rupp, Great African Trophies, Rupp,

Great African Trophies is a photographic showcase of some of the greatest game trophies ever taken on the Dark Continent, and it includes elephants, buffaloes, the big cats, spiral-horned antelopes, and dozens of other magnificent animals. The focus is on animals that rank in the top five of each species in the Safari Club International and Rowland Ward record books, but also included are historic, unlisted, and little-known trophies, along with their stories.
Trophies are interesting. They speak of experiences gained, they cement memories forever in our minds, and they evoke dreams yet to be realized. Of course, everybody would like a big trophy, but few are lucky enough to take a truly giant prize. When one does take a magnificent animal, the story behind it is worth telling, and here the author has done an exceptional job in uncovering the tales behind some of Africa’s greatest trophies.
For example, there has always been a mystery surrounding which Westerner first shot a record eastern (Kenya) bongo. Various candidates with hallowed names come to the fore in the research—Chauncey Stigand, Kermit Roosevelt, George Grey—but the chances are that a relatively unknown Austrian may have been the first. His story and the photos of his bongo are here in this wonderful new book by Diana Rupp. Likewise, you’ll find a number of large buffaloes that have been shot since World War II, but these are not your average trophy buffalo. The heads depicted in this book and the pure-luck stories that sometimes accompanied the getting of such a winning lottery ticket will be as interesting as the pictures.
Sometimes—often many will say—a huge trophy is taken by pure accident. What of the huge nyala that was shot when a nonhunter spotted an animal nobody else had seen and innocently asks, “What kind of animal is that?” His story is in this book. Mountain nyalas are almost always purposely hunted and then when it is a big one, well photographed in the field. These field photos are truly a feast for the eyes. By pure accident, one fellow hunter once found a leopard skin that was easily big enough to look like a full-grown lion, size-wise anyway. It was hanging for sale in a curio shop in a remote location in Africa. It is often hard to see how big the skull of a cat is in the field, but there was no doubt in our hunter’s mind that he was looking at a champion as he gazed at the skin of a giant leopard in that far-away tourist shop along a dusty African byway. The photos of that leopard are also here in this book.
Nothing fascinates like ivory, and tuskers known to be in the top ten of Rowland Ward are huge, yet there are other giant tuskers that were never recorded but would fall in the top ten, and all of these have marvelous stories to tell. Even the lowly hogs are well represented in this book. This will be the first time our readers will see the rare photos of a 1921 warthog with 24-inch tusks!! The world record bushpig? Our photos show this trophy to be almost as big as a giant forest hog . . . and entered in no record book.
This book is a feast for the eyes for anyone who loves African wildlife, and it contains the best available historical and modern photos of superlative African game animals, as well as the tales—many never before told—of the hunters who were fortunate to connect with them. The photos are accompanied by a description of where, when, and how the animal was taken, and the book provides, if possible, the details of the hunt and how it unfolded. The incredible secrets behind these giant trophies are now all here in this lavishly produced tome.
Be it spiral horns, the Big Five, glamour antelope, or even near-extinct species such as the giant sable, this book details all the finest trophies ever to come from Africa, and it traces the history of hunting and wildlife management over the course of more than a century. This extravagantly produced coffee-table book is glorious visual and a must for any hunter’s library.

Khaki Drill & Jungle Green: British Tropical Uniforms 1939-45, Brayley, Ingram. Khaki Drill & Jungle Green: British Tropical Uniforms 1939-45, Brayley, Ingram.

The new paperback edition of Khaki Drill & Jungle Green offers the most detailed examination ever published of the tropical uniforms issued to all three services in the Mediterranean theatre and in South-East Asia during World War II. The evolution of tropical uniforms under the pressure of campaign experience between 1939 and 1945 is traced in Martin Brayley's nearly 300 striking colour photographs, showing live models wearing rare original uniforms and equipment, and carrying period weapons, in authentic settings.
The subjects illustrated cover a wide range, from rear echelon staff to a Bren gun crew of 'Desert Rats', and Alamein tank crewman and a naval party ashore in Malta; from RAF 'erks' and Army Pioneers sweating on fatigues, to a kilted Highlander exploring the sights of India, an infantry man of Slim's victorious 14th Army slogging through the jungle swamps of Burma.
Like its companion volume, The World War Two Tommy, this book will be welcomed by militaria collectors and dealers and any other reader with an interest in the physcial realities of World War II.

Wind in my Face. Thummler,  Quimby. Wind in my Face. Thummler, Quimby.

A great hunter is not one who has taken the best trophy or traveled the farthest to hunt. A great hunter is not one who has paid more or collected the largest number of game animals. For me a great hunter is one who has the passion to pursue game in fair chase and enjoy the hunt no matter what the outcome. Hubert Thummler is, indeed, a great hunter.” (From the foreword by Nicolas Franco.)
Thummler is not only a passionate hunter but also one who has traveled far for the trophies in his extraordinary big-game collection. He started hunting in Africa at the end of the “Golden Age” and was lucky enough to have packed in numerous safaris when the Big Five were still available in one hunt. In addition, he has hunted all the spiral horned antelope, with some being fantastic trophies. He has taken 325 record-book trophies (including several world records) from more than forty countries on six continents. Wind in My Face is the story of this great hunter’s lifetime search for big-game trophies around the world. In one story Thummler pursues that mythical mountain king, the markhor, a challenging animal to hunt, and he describes the Chitral area where he saw about one hundred of these animals feeding on new spring leaves on top of oak trees! This story ends with Hubert taking a markhor with a running shot and having the “great fortune that the only tree on a nearly treeless hillside kept the markhor from sliding at least 600 yards and into the river.” Then came the extraordinary story of Thummler sighting, at 150 yards, a snow leopard feeding on a dead markhor. He has shot every single category of sheep listed in the SCI record book and has the honor of having shot more varieties of sheep than any other hunter ever.
In the world of big-game hunting there have been a lot of extraordinary individuals, but this Weatherby award winner surely ranks as one of the great hunters of the twentieth century. This is the story of Thummler’s remarkable hunting career.

The Perfect Shot II. Robertson. The Perfect Shot II. Robertson.

Kevin “Doctari” Robertson’s best-selling book on shot placement for African game, The Perfect Shot, has now been completely revised and updated: extensive additions to the text; 300 all-new photos of the animals covered; and revised, detailed anatomical drawings. The Perfect Shot II also has shot-placement details for a number of species not covered in the original edition, including blesbok, bongo, black wildebeest, grysbok, nyala, reedbuck, roan, and steenbok. In all, twenty-seven African game species are now covered.
Robertson, a licensed professional hunter and veterinarian, first developed The Perfect Shot a dozen years ago, and it was quickly recognised as the most comprehensive work ever undertaken to show the anatomical features for all classes of African game. His revised version reflects his increased knowledge of big-game anatomy and shot placement. In addition, the chapters on bullet construction and performance have been substantially revised to cover the advances in bullet development that have occurred in the twelve years since the publication of the original edition.
The book covers just about every animal you might hunt in Africa, from the big, dangerous species (elephant, buffalo, rhino, and hippo) to the large cats (lion and leopard) and from the largest antelopes (eland and bongo) to the smallest (duiker, grysbok, and klipspringer). Even Africa's more unusual species (giraffe, crocodile, zebra, and hyena) are covered in detail. Each animal is shown in at least one colour field picture as well as a colour "ghost view" that illustrates the shoulder bones, heart, lungs, brain, and spinal column. These views allow you to see precisely where to place your shot in relation to how the animal may be standing. Most species now have multiple illustrations from different angles for easier understanding of the different shot-placement options.
The invaluable natural history section on each animal contains trophy-assessment hints as well as how to determine the sex of an animal. Other chapters include calibre and bullet selection, trophy handling, basic animal anatomy, and practical tips on how to make that "perfect shot." This great reference work is a must-have for every safari hunter, no matter how experienced.

Before you assume this as the same ole Billy The Kid story here me out. After reading, there are many details and research in this book that are not commonly known.

Before you assume this as the same ole Billy The Kid story hear me out. After reading, there's many details in this book that are not commonly known. For example there's an article from the New York Sun dated Sept. 10, 1876, where Billy ran into some trouble in, of all places, New York City. The article was researched as legit and in the original typeface. Also, the photo shown on the books cover is the only known photo of the Regulators all together. This book is a compilation of extenensive research by the authors/editor. The author and editor Russell Nelson is an avid BPCR shooter, buckskinner, and historian. Read more, you won’t be disappointed.

On July 14th, 1881, William H Bonney, famously known as the violent outlaw Billy the Kid, did not die by Sheriff Patrick Garrett's hand but instead lived out the rest of his days with many adventures. In his second chance at life in New Mexico he fought in the Apache Wars against Geronimo to later live out the rest his days as a family man, known for being a beloved father and husband.

How Billy the Kid Lived On: There are many conflicting theories of what really happened to Billy the Kid with the history books claiming him as a no good cattle rustler gunned down by the law on July 14th, 1881. This long developed project has been created by its passionate authors with combined decades of research of what really happened to the New Mexico's famous cowboy. This book does not give credit to those seeking fame off the back of a better man. This story has absolutely nothing to do with such fakes as Brushy Bill Roberts from Hico, Texas boasting as if he is Billy the Kid himself but instead a narrative written from the perspective of William H Bonney.

This book is written as two parts, with Part 1 reading as a truly accurate depiction of Billy the Kid's life.

John Taffin's Book of the .45 Caliber. Taffin. John Taffin's Book of the .45 Caliber. Taffin.

This book consists of a lifetime of experiences with .45-caliber firearms - sixguns, semiautos, single shots and leverguns. It is not even close to being the Complete Book of the .45 for several reasons. I have not experienced every type of .45 ever made, and although I've seen several books with the word "complete" in their title, they were far from it. It is simply impossible to write a complete book of anything. You will also find a few, a very few, .45 handgun cartridges missing, such as the .451 Detonics and .45 Super. I simply have no experience with them. However, the .45 Colt, .45 Schofield, .45 Auto Rim, .45 ACP, .45 GAP, .45 Win Mag, .454 Casull, .460 Rowland, .460 S&W, .45-70, .45-90 and .45-110 will all be found here, along with many of the firearms in which they are chambered (as well as specially selected loads). I can't cover every cartridge in a book this size, nor can I cover every sixgun, semiauto, single shot and levergun. What you'll find here are those cartridges and guns I pretty much favor.

Wind, Dust, and Snow II. Anderson Wind, Dust, and Snow II. Anderson

Robert Anderson knows his sheep and Caprinae and has spent a lifetime gathering modern and historic photos and stories about the world's most coveted game animals. (He, himself, is also a hunter of mountain game.) In this, his second book on Asian mountain game, he has pulled out all stops: The book is filled to the rim with contemporary photos of great argali, urial, mouflon, blue sheep, markhor, tur, and ibex that will make every mountain-game hunter worldwide get an elevated heart rate! Also included are great modern and historical stories about unbelievable hunts that will be the envy of every sheep hunter alive. Complementing these stories are two detailed historical chapters on Marco Polo sheep hunting that sets conventional thinking on its head. It turns out that immediately after World War II several individuals managed to penetrate the Pamirs in search of fabled Marco Polo rams, even though most think that Asian hunting wasn't opened until decades later.
Anderson takes a long and hard look at Elgin Gates shikars to Asia. It was Gates's 1959 hunt for Marco Polo that made the hunting world sit up and take notice, although he and his companion Herb Klein were by no means the first hunters after World War II to obtain this sheep. Several large mysteries surround Gates and this hunt, which is not surprising since Gates himself wrote at least five versions of this account. What Anderson discovers is fascinating.
Another larger than life sheep hunter is Art Dubs, and Anderson devotes a lengthy chapter on Dubs's mountain hunting career in Asia. Love him, like him, or hate him, Art Dubs was one hell of a determined sheep hunter and arguably the most accomplished sheep hunter of them all.
Then there is a chapter on Al Means, a quiet and self-effacing man, whose accomplishments rank alongside the two others.
A famous sheep hunter once said, "All sheep hunters are crazy!" No one is likely to dispute that notion after reading about hunting at altitudes that make breathing a seriously belaboring activity and getting a mature old ram or billie a virtual impossibility because of the steepness of the terrain and the intelligence of the quarry. Even given these environmental and physical obstacles, each year a handful of individuals persists and climbs the highest mountains on earth to seek trophies that are almost impossible to get. The pages of this book reveal a sheep- and goat-hunting paradise for those intrepid enough to scale the rooftops of the world. Magnificent photos and engaging text take you to this place.

The FN-49: The Last Elegant Old-World Military Rifle. Johnsom The FN-49: The Last Elegant Old-World Military Rifle. Johnsom

This revised and expanded second edition of The FN-49: The Last Elegant Old-World Military Rifle is the result of author Wayne Johnson’s continued and exhaustive study of the FN Model 1949 rifle. All chapters in the book have been updated and in some cases significantly expanded to reflect the results of Johnson’s additional research and data gathering over the last fifteen years since the release of the first edition. One new chapter and three new appendixes have been added, page count has increased from 200 to over 400, illustrations have increased from around 300 to over 1,000, and the book is now produced in an exciting new color format.
New FN-49 production data as well as many official period photos, provided by sources at FN, enhanced a number of chapters. Over fifty new period images of the FN-49 in action, most never-before published, have been added. The chapter covering the early self-loading rifles that preceded the FN-49 has nearly tripled in length and includes more than 70 images. A new addition is coverage of the various patents that were issued for these early FN self-loading rifles. The Special Rifles chapter has new photographs of unique FN-49s including a prototype sniper rifle, a cut-away, and an infrared night sight-equipped rifle.
The Sniper Rifle chapter has been considerably improved, now having more than 75 photographs and additional text, including coverage of the Luxembourg contract OIP scopes, long thought lost. Also included is a fascinating personal account of a sharpshooter that served in the Belgian Congo, documented by noted FN authority Anthony Vanderlinden. Also improved is the chapter on Chamberings, Ammunition, and Cartridge Clips that has new information, more photos, and a sidebar covering the test firing of some original-issue 1949 ammunition.
The chapter considered by some collectors to be the centerpiece of the book, the Parts Breakdown chapter, now has many more illustrative photographs along with expanded text describing every component part of the rifle. A new chapter has been added to cover the major contributing manufacturers: Herkner, Meopta, Mecar, and OIP; these companies were instrumental in adapting the FN-49 for the specialized roles of sniping and launching rifle grenades.
Another interesting addition is a detailed account of the importation of the Luxembourg contract rifles, including coverage of the agreement between the importer and the U.S. government regarding the modifications made to the selective-fire fire rifles to make them eligible for sale in the U.S. The Accessories chapter has been expanded to cover more of the attachments, tools, accessories, and technical information that were developed to support the use and maintenance of the rifle. Several new bayonet variations have been identified and are described. The Argentine chapter now includes an account of FN-49s serving in the Falklands war. And more.
This expanded second edition represents a major step forward in telling the story of this fascinating rifle and is a must-read for all FN-49 owners and collectors, FN enthusiasts in general, and for all people with an interest in learning more about the development, production, and military service of one of the last of the old-world, elegant, military rifles.

A Hunting Life and Two Exploratory Asian Hunts.  Speegle. A Hunting Life and Two Exploratory Asian Hunts. Speegle.

Written in English and Spanish, this book by Weatherby Award winner Robert Speegle is the account of two of his most memorable hunts: his 1976 hunt in Tibet for Tibetan argali and his 1984 hunt for markhor in Pakistan. In addition, there are hunts for Spanish ibex and Spanish red stag, but the two Asian hunts are the mainstay of the book.
The Tibetan hunt is a unique endeavor; only James Mellon, Lit Ng, Art Carlsberg, and a very few other intrepid souls have hunted and shot a Tibetan argali, which is the specimen Bob Speegle got on his 1976 hunt. What a specimen it is! It is the biggest head listed in the SCI record book in its category, and it has kept that position since it was entered because the unstable situation in Tibet has prevented other sportsmen from hunting there. Speegle hunted this mother-of-all-sheep the old fashioned way: He walked in and hunted for weeks-game was decidedly sparse and shy-but in the end he prevailed in this totally self-guided adventure. In addition to the argali, he also got a blue sheep and a Ladak urial.
For the 1984 hunt in the Chitral Grol area of Pakistan, Speegle was lucky to obtain one of only two markhor permits issued that year. Markhor hunts are among the most demanding in the entire world; the mountains are steep, ice covered, treacherous, which means they are deadly to negotiate. Taking a markhor takes skill, patience, and some luck. In the end all the elements came together for Speegle.
Since the launch of his book, half the edition has sold out. Safari Press has agreed to distribute A Hunting Life to the English speaking market, but our copies are limited. If you are a sheep hunter and like unusual hunting destinations, this book is for you.
