Hunting the Spiral Horns - Eland, Everyman's Elephant, edited by Peter Flack, is the second in a five book series covering all the spiral horns and is designed to be the definitive book on hunting the five sub-species of eland. The first in the series, Hunting the Spiral Horns - Kudu, The Top African Antelope, was launched in January, 2012.
The Eland Book is big, over 300 pages long with 350 colour photos and over 40 black and white ones. The list of the 21 hunters and authors who contributed material specially written for the book reads like the Who's Who of eland hunters and includes luminaries such as Craig Boddington, Ivan Carter, Don Cowie, Anthony Dyer, Robin Hurt, Jofie Lamprecht, Kevin Robertson and Tony Tomkinson, to name but a few. The book also includes the exploits of famous hunters of yesteryear such as Lyell, Maydon, Millais, Roosevelt, Selous, Stevenson Hamilton and others, as well as chapters on rifles and ammunition, clothing and equipment and a number of "How To" chapters - given the different terrains in which eland are found - by passionate and very experienced eland hunters.
