A Country Boy in Africa
Someone once said, “A professional hunter started his career with very little money, a new rifle and two young trackers. At the end, he had no money, an old rifle and two old trackers.” But what adventures they had. It's been a long road from Missouri's back woods to Africa's game fields, but George Hoffman made that trip and his life has never been the same. In addition to a long, successful hunting career he's developed the popular big game cartridge; the .416, a cartridge respected and used by clients and professionals alike.
Throughout his long career, George Hoffman has done it all. He's learned that the PH has to know what the animal might do AND what the client might do when the time comes. Be prepared. Whether the hunt has been easy or hard, George has stood up to the task. Whether it went as planned or not, George tells it in his own inimitable style that has pleased readers for many years.
This is, indeed, a very candid big game hunting book. And, yes, there is a long story on the why and how of the .416 development. The chapter on Safari Rifles, Bullets, etc. is now considered a classic on the subjects. George is one of the few professionals that have capped off a career by developing a cartridge that will live on. He's added to that legacy with this truly enjoyable book.
