BOOK HUNTING THE SPIRAL HORNS BUSHBUCK - FLACK
It is odd that the smallest of the spiral horns, bushbuck, should end up being the third and biggest book in the five book series on all the 30 members of the extended spiral horn family but I guess that says something about this beautiful but pugnacious yet compact buck. Yes, the book is nearly 400 pages and contains exactly 450 colour and 33 black and white photos. This is 46 pages longer than the Eland Book which was, in turn, 36 pages longer than its predecessor, the Kudu Book. Twenty five contributors have written brand new pieces for the book and, in my humble opinion, it is the best of the books we have done so far and succeeds in our goal of making it THE definitive book on hunting bushbuck.
The contributors read like the Who’s Who of hunting and include South Africa’s very first professional hunter, Coenraad Vermaak, North America’s top African PH and outfitter, Jeff Rann, as well as people like Don Cowie (author of An African Game Ranger on Safari), Kai-uwe Denker (author of Along the Hunter’s Path) and Pierre van der Walt (author of African Dangerous Game Cartridges), so they can write as well. The photographs are truly outstanding and we have been lucky to receive excellent examples of the work of a number of top class professional wildlife photographers, including Jofie Lamprecht, Cath Robertson, Robert Ross, Brendon Ryan and Michael Viljoen, as well as hundreds supplied by the contributing authors themselves, including one taken by Adam Parkison in C.A.R of a huge python swallowing a fully grown bushbuck ewe.
