BUFFALO!
by Craig Boddington

ISBN: 978-1-57157-354-4

Craig Boddington is a hunter par excellence. As a veteran hunter of Africa's gamelands, he has hunted one animal more than any other, the buffalo. Not only has he shot more buffalo than most professional hunters, but he also has hunted them in every place in Africa where a huntable population exists. During his career, he has shot numerous bulls over forty inches and a few approaching fifty inches. As a writer par excellence, Craig tells his readers where to hunt, how and when to hunt, and what will happen when they do hunt. He describes what it means to rush the herd, one of his favorite methods of hunting these worthy opponents. He tells of the great bull in Masailand that he almost got, of the perfect hunt he had in Zambia, and of the charge he experienced in Tanzania. His entertaining stories of encounters of the black, mean, and nasty kind will keep you riveted. Published entirely in color, this book has it all: rifles, bullets, scopes, methods, and stories. Whether it is in West Africa, East Africa, or below the Zambezi River, Boddington has hunted buffalo north to south and east to west—in rain forest, savanna brush, or the Okavango Swamp. Follow Craig as he pursues the animal that Ruark described as "looking as though you owe him money." Nobody does buffalo better than Boddington.

This is truly a masterpiece detailed book on Cape Buffalo Hunting Review by Kris
I just finished reading this book. I always wanted to go to Tanzania and hunt the Cape Buffalo. I've been fortunate enough to shoot a 1500lb Asian water buffalo with one shot. However, reading this book is the closet chance I get so far of experiencing a cape buffalo hunt. Craig Boddington goes in depth on different kinds of success, dangerous and failures of his years hunting cape buffalo. In addition of explaining the five different sub-species of Buffalo throughout Africa which I never knew! He also explains the different terms relating to Cape Buffalo such as" Boss" and "Daggaboys" when associating types of cape buffalo in herds. Then he goes in depth about the different methods and tactics that are commonly used hunting buffalo. Craig Boddington also goes in detail on how Safari hunting in general had changed from the late 70's though modern day. Lastly, every page of this book along with its texts, captions and pictures will keep you entertained!!! Craig Boddington is my favorite author and hunting idol! I just ordered another book by Craig Boddington " Hunting the elephant". Can't wait for that to come in! (Posted on 7/7/2018)
