Bongo & Nyala
Edited by Peter Flack
Written by some of the top professional and amateur African hunters, the object of this book has been to produce the definitive work on hunting the bongo and nyala species. A number of experienced hunters – some 30 in all – have contributed brand new chapters to the book. They read like the Who’s Who of hunting and include such icons as Gary Kelly, Rudy Lubin, Mike Prettejohn, Jason Roussos, Tony Seth-Smith, Robin Hurt and Coenraad Vermaak.
Apart from in depth research on the bongo and nyala themselves, there are chapters on “How To” hunt these incredible animals, Rifles and Cartridges and Clothing and Equipment. Exciting accounts of successes and failures in the hunt are included as well as further lessons sourced from hunters of yesteryear such as Maydon, James Mellon, Powell-Cotton, Drummond and Christy to mention but a few. The book is complemented by outstanding photographs provided by the contributors as well as professional and amateur photographers and friends.
In brief, after reading this book you will know as much as it is possible to learn from a book about hunting bongo and nyala – the elite African trophies. This is the fifth in the five book series covering the hunting of all members of the spiral horn family, some 30 animals in total, if animals recognized by both the Rowland Ward and SCI record books are taken into account.
