Review:

"An excellent guide for beginners and professionals alike." (Rowland Ward, South Africa)

"It contains everything one could require in a book on hunting in Africa” (Man Magnum Magazine)

"This book contains all about: The professional hunter, Preparation for the hunt, Tracking, Shot placement, Rifles and ballistics, Emergencies, Trophies and field preparation for trophies, Measurements and records, Ethics and the law. PLUS: Detailed information on 130 species, making this also a scientific field guide. A practical, full-colour guide for the hunting in Africa for beginners and professionals alike, covering all aspects of hunting. It is also a valuable field guide about 130 species of African species and where they are found." (Man Magnum Magazine)

“The authors were wildly successful in their goal of providing a great information source for Professional Hunters (PHs) in Africa, particularly those still in training or without much hunting experience. Indeed, PHs that I’ve talked to like Johan Seyffert and Kobus Kok were quite familiar with previous editions of the book from their early days in training and often referred to it as the “PH’s Bible.”... I cannot recommend this book highly enough as a handy reference book for men and women interested in becoming a professional hunter." (John McAdams, The Big Game Hunting Blog)
