(The opportunity to hunt certain varieties of big game may...)
The opportunity to hunt certain varieties of big game may come only once or twice in a lifetime. A chance lost, a shot missed, a track unrecognized or a trophy misjudged may never present itself again. Even if you can afford to make yearly expeditions or if you live in the finest big-game regions, one thing you've learned is that you must never stop learning if you expect to take game. The "lucky" hunters are the most skillful hunters. In this book, Byron Dalrymple shares his knowledge of techniques mastered in four decades of hunting across the united states as well as Canada and Mexico. Added to his knowledge are special sections by other experts: Erwin A. Bauer on hunting bears and on dealing with guide-outfitters, Hal Swiggert on choosing the right rifle; Charles Elliott on sheep and caribou. There's even a chapter on the exotic horned and antlered trophies - from Barbary sheep to mouflon to blackbuck and nilgai - that have been established in the Southwest. Dalrymple himself covers the hunting of exotics in his home state of Texas, and William S. Huey, New Mexico's Chief of Game and Fish Management, deals with species successfully introduced in his state. North American Big Game Hunting is a comprehensive, practical guide, with individual chapters devoted to all native species, plus full coverage of hunting techniques, equipment and the secrets of judging game country as well as trophies. Whether you're a tyrp or an old hand, this book can increase your chance of taking big game.
