There is no better training method for the hunter who wants a calm, steady, and obedient retriever.Milner, who has been training retrievers professionally for more than thirty years, reverses the trend of difficult dogs and difficult training methods and offers a system every hunter can easily understand and follow.

East Africa affects our imagination like few other places: The sight of a charging rhino goes directly to the heart; the limitless landscape of bony highlands, desert, and mountain is, as Isak Dinesen wrote, of "unequalled nobility." White Hunters is the story of seventy years of African adventure, danger, and romance. It re-creates the legary big-game safaris led by Selous and Bell and the daring ventures of early hunters into unexplored territories, and brings to life such romantic figures as Cape-to-Cairo Grogan, who walked 4,000 miles for the love of a woman, and Dinesen's dashing lover, Denys Finch. Witnesses to the richest wildlife spectacle on the earth, these hunters were the first conservationists. Hard-drinking, infatuated with risk, and careless in love, they inspired Hemingway's stories and movies with Clark Gable and Gregory Peck. A little over 100 years ago, East Africa was terra incognita to most whites: a land largely unmapped, sparsely settled by Europeans, and teeming with wildlife--from elephants to wildebeest, bongos to rhinos, and all manner of scarifying beasts in between. It was the hunter-adventurer's paradise, and by the early 20th century, a small, lionhearted clan of explorers and big-game hunters began leading safaris there for money. They became the legendary White Hunters of Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, men who led manifold adventurers--including royalty, film stars, writers, and millionaires--in pursuit of the world's biggest, most dangerous, and most sought-after game. White Hunters is a nostalgic and densely-packed history of these men and their adventures, from the turn of the century until the 1970s when politics, a growing population, civil strife, and concern about species destruction intervened. Brian Herne has written a virtual and anecdotal Who's Who of White Hunters, crammed with the details of hundreds of hunts and the dozens of men who led them. This is no book for the faint-hearted or the politically correct. Despite Herne's insistence that his heroes were the first tru...

Elephant-Hunting in East Equatorial Africa: Being an Account of Three Years Ivory-Hunting Under Mount Kenia and Among the Ndorobo Savages of the ... North End of Lake Rudolph (Classic Reprint)
Manufacturer: Forgotten Books
The experiences of other wandering hunters have always had so much interest for me, that I have ventured, perhaps presumptuously, to conclude that my own may possibly be thought worthy of perusal by those with similar savage tastes. Even then I should hardly have made bold to wield so unaccustomed a weapon as the pen, were it not that my elephant-hunting has been done in regions hitherto unvisited by the hunter. This circumstance, and the fact that my account is of quite recent adventures, describing faithfully, to the best of my ability, the country and game as they actually are to-day an important quality in the value of such matter may, I hope, tend to justify my present more daring enterprise. For, although I have hunted in South Africa while yet the high veldt was black with wildebeeste and the bush veldt still teemed with wild beasts, is not AH unters Wanderings to oo no farther back in the classics of big game too unapproachably fascinating as a latest record of elephant-hunting there to admit of rivals in that field And for descriptions of a more recent search for sport in the southern portion of the continent, have we not the charming volume of Mr. J.
