Quick Overview

"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.  .  .  ."

A BULLET WELL PLACED
One Hunter's Adventures around the World
by Johnny Chilton

2005 Long Beach, 245pp, photos

ISBN:  978-1-57157-453-4

"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.  .  .  ."  This is not a how-to or where-to book, although plenty of useful information is included.  This is the story of one man’s hunting adventures around the world.  It is a book that immerses the reader in the sights, sounds, and smells of international big-game hunting.  Experience the excitement and adventure of each hunt as you follow Chilton as he tracks African lion, elephant, and Cape buffalo into thick vegetation, where one wrong step would spell disaster.  Johnny Chilton has been on safari to Africa numerous times, but what makes his hunts interesting is that he went to work for a safari company spending months in East Africa learning about safari hunting from the inside out.  In between his work, he hunted on a grand scale.  In addition to his East African safaris, he has hunted in other parts of the world.  Using his flair for description, Chilton relates two interesting trips to Mongolia for ibex and Kamchatka for bear.  Also included are his trips to Alaska in search of caribou and brown bear, and Australia for water buffalo.  Painting a picture of what it is actually like to be there and do it, this well-written book captures the excitement and emotions of each journey.
