The Hunting Experience
By Philip Holden

The Hunting Experience has all the suspense and excitement of a thriller - but it is real life. Philip Holden, an accomplished hunter, demonstrates once again his ability to relate in words all the enthusiasm and tension experienced by the hunter tracking a trophy game through the harsh mountain country and river valleys of New Zealand. He expressively evokes the rugged beauty of this remote hinterland, where only the determined and fit are able to venture. He describes, with precision and humour, his tough companions of the chase; the camaraderie in isolated mountain huts; the pain, cold and sheer stubbornness in pursuing a trophy. And he mixes in some good advice on the ethics of hunting.

The Hunting Experience is a series of interlocking episodes recording hunts for sika and red deer trophies in the rugged North Island bush country, for chamois and thar in the snowy alpine terrain of the South Island, and for wild pigs in the picturesque valleys of the Wanganui and Canterbury regions. It combines adventure and drama with the disappointment of lost opportunities and the thrill of success.
