Rimrock Man

by Robert Anderson

W. Burch Carson is known and remembered for his important work in conducting a thorough, on-the-ground census of the scant remaining population of native Texas desert bighorns in the Texas Trans-Pecos region in the 1940s. His work was invaluable to subsequent restoration efforts for Texas bighorns. But Burch was a fascinating personality in his own right, a consummate outdoorsman and loner who knew the Sierra Diablo, Baylor, and Beach mountain ranges better than anyone else has, before or since, and he was a student of their mysteries—the lost mines, the caves, the cliffs, the ghosts and legends. While Carson left Texas after World War II and became a successful rancher in Arkansas, his early life roaming the hills of West Texas is what shaped his life and outlook.

A Hunter's Hunter

by Robin Hurt

Robin Hurt grew up in Kenya and shot his first buffalo and leopard before he was in high school.   Once he started hunting professionally, he did not shy from taking on risks. He guided clients to where the largest heads were, and that included Zaire when it was wild and dangerous and Sudan when rival tribal factions were at war.  He hunted during the “golden era” of the African safari when Kenya was in its heyday, Zambia was renowned for its hunting fields, and the entire Big Five could be shot in Tanzania in a few days.  And wherever he went, he got exceptional trophies for his clients.

Rowland Ward's Records of Big Game 30th Edn. Africa (Softcover, Measurer's Edn.)

by Rowland Ward

For more than two-and-a-half years the production team at Rowland Ward Ltd. has been hard at work preparing the 30th edition of its iconic Records of Big Game.  In order to create an “entirely new” record book, this one on African game animals, we decided to implement the following: We have included photos of the highest scoring heads, based upon a strict policy of ethics and aesthetics; we have made the book “user friendly” by completely reorganizing the layout of the book according to traditional methods used by naturalists and hunters as well as by biological kinship; we have created—with particular pride we might add—83 new maps featuring over 200 varieties of African game animals that illustrate accurate, current game distributions in great detail and full color; and, finally, we have completely reshaped the table of contents and index to make the search for a specific species easy to do.

TALL TALES

by Buzz Charlton

Few people need an introduction to Buzz Charlton, made famous over the last decade with a series of elephant hunting DVDs set in Zimbabwe.  If you haven’t seen them, you should—they have the power to raise the hackles on an 800-pound dead gorilla.  Buzz is also known for shooting crop-raiding Problem Animal Control (PAC) elephants and ornery, cranky tuskless cows in the thick jesse bush of the Zambezi Valley.  This sort of hunting quickly distinguishes the men from the boys—it is definitely not for the faint of heart.   In fact, at a recent safari convention Buzz admitted to us that he was doing less of that type of hunting because he wanted to see his girls grow up.  This does not mean he has stopped going after elephants, but rather he is now concentrating his hunts along the Mozambique border for trophy bull elephants . . . as if that is a tame way to spend one’s professional career!

Return to Toonaklut (eBook)

by Jeff Davis

Russell Annabel is by any account one of the most colorful and controversial characters ever to set foot in Alaska. Born in 1904 in Tacoma, Washington, Rusty moved to Alaska as a teenager and quickly made a name for himself as a top guide. Early on he hooked up with the legendary Tex Cobb, another character of the Alaskan bush. Rusty soon started writing stories about hunting in the Northland, mainly for Sports Afield. These were among the best-written outdoor stories of the twentieth century, and they made his reputation far and wide. His extraordinary talents allow us, even today, to share in the excitement of Alaska in the first half of the twentieth century. It is widely accepted that Rusty was given to hyperbole, but what is truly amazing is how many of his characters

A Bullet Well Placed (eBook)

by Johnny Chilton

"There is no sensation in the world like tracking a wounded Cape buffalo in thick vegetation, knowing that he is responsible for killing more hunters than any of the other Big Five.  A buffalo draws you into battle on his terms.  He won’t charge out like a lion will at first sight of you.  He waits until you are close  . . . and then . . .  First you hear a grunt and then an explosion of hoofs chopping at the earth like a hundred lumberjacks’ axes falling in a tree-chopping contest.  Only I was the tree and the buffalo was the ax.  The old bull wanted to make kindling out of me.  .  .  ."

The Adventurous Life of a Vagabond Hunter (eBook)

by Sten Cedergren

There have been many claims of remarkable adventures in the safari business, but one would be hard pressed to find a life story that can top that of Sten Cedergren’s. Born in Sweden, he set out to become a cowboy at an early age—first stop, Paraguay. Next he joined the United States Army to fight in Korea—even though he was a Swedish citizen! After further roaming, he landed in Kenya at a time when most Europeans still carried a handgun in the streets of Nairobi. He eventually joined White Hunters Ltd., in addition to doing elephant control work. During his career Sten was clobbered several times by
