The African hunters of days gone by have had experiences few hunters have today.

In those days, the game was much more plentiful and regulations were non-existent. Hunting was more dangerous - no chopper evacuation when clawed up by a wounded leopard and no protection against marauding tribesmen.

We can learn something from them.

In this series, we feature some of the writings of the hunters that came before us and who hunted in an era we think of with nostalgia.
