African Game

by Stephen Carton-Barber

This massive work contains very detailed maps of species and subspecies. It also is the only book we are aware of that shows the historical distribution of African animals. In many cases, it is a sad reminder of what once was, but in a few cases, optimism can be found. It is supported by hundreds of photos, almost all taken in the wild, of the animals as you might see on safari... Read More

Use Enough Gun

by Robert Ruark

Robert Ruark was eight years old when his grandfather gave him his first gun, a little 20-gauge, and the Old Man taught the boy good manners with a gun. Ruark once wrote, “I have been on twenty safaris. . . . I have shot three elephants of over a hundred pounds per tusk, killed a couple of lions. . . . I have lost count on leopard—maybe twenty—and I have no idea about buffalo, maybe a hundred . . . wildebeest, gerenuk, oryx, duiker—in general, camp meat, must have run into a thousand. I have shot three tigers, been severely mauled by a leopard. . . ." But, this book is more than the record of a lifetime’s bag: It is the story of a man’s...

TALL TALES (Signed)

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.  .  .  ."

Hell, I’m Still Here!

by Sundra

Nobody has seen or done it all, but Jon Sundra has come as close as anyone. He wrote his first article in 1966, and by the early 1970s had risen to prominence at a time when the Golden Era of American outdoor writers was in full swing. The next thirty-plus years was a time he and his colleagues were routinely invited by Remington, Winchester, Weatherby, and Ruger—and by many foreign gun manufacturers as well—to all-expense-paid jaunts to hunt and visit factories all over the world. It was a time long before the Internet, cable TV, and blogging drastically diluted what had been a very exclusive world, a time when a select handful of men—characters, actually—gathered in venues where little business was accomplished but a helluva lot of good food was consumed and adult beverages quaffed. Sometimes even a few gun-related things were discussed!  During this period Jon met all the greats of the shooting and hunting world, and this book gives us an unvarnished look at some of the characters of that regrettably gone era.
