with Neil Illingworth & Rex Forrester

Hardback with dustjacket. 256 pages. 1st Edtion published in 1967. Dustjacket is worn around the edges, Book is in great condition.

Most New Zealand hunting books so far published have been of the personal reminiscence variety - good and lively, as a rule, but of no direct value to the amateur hunter, or to parents keen to bring up the "young idea" in the way they should go.

What has long been needed is a book that will put the beginner on to successful shooting carried out in conditions of maximum safety and in the highest degree of comfort that the terrain and weather will allow.

This book fills that gap. Rex Forrester, himself a veteran hunter, has had years of experience as a professional guide and hunting instructor, during which time he has worked in every corner of New Zealand. His understanding of the problems of the beginner, in all aspects of the sport, is unequalled.

What are these problems? Safety first - not only with weapons, but also in bushcraft, in adverse terrain and weather conditions. And - what to hunt, where to hunt, how to hunt. Rex Forrester's principles, if followed, will avert many a disappointing and miserable experience - and the risk of accidental injury or fatality.

It's easy reading. Shooting, for the author, has brought a wealth of comic and/or exciting incidents, and he's not the man to lay down the law in classroom style. He takes you with him to the campfire and into his confidence: laugh while you learn...

Rex Forrester is the last person to claim that the methods he recommends are "his own patent"; or, that they are the only practical ones. But he does guarantee that they're proved, by experience of trial-and-error, to be sound, sensible and successful. Please click here to ask a question
