About this Item

"Early in my fishing and hunting life, I concentrated on the number of fish or birds that I collected. It was important to harvest the legal limit! I measured the quality of the venture by the size of the game bag. As I matured, numbers became less important and I began to look for different experiences. I became a collector of adventrures. I set goals for myself to engage in different field sports activities. I decided to attempt to collect all the sport fish species of North America in trophy class and all the billfish species of the world. In hunting, I wanted to collect all the species of waterfowl of North America, all the upland game birds, all the quail species, and all the different wild turkeys. Grand Slams became the target. It seemed like a tall order, but it gave me purpose to guide me in planning my leisure time sporting activities. As I write these words, I have succeeded in achieving all of these goals. I also have a very large collection of big game experiences. I have hunted and fished on six continents and traveled to more than 120 countries of the world. I have written each chapter as I would recount these stories verbally. I have used terms common in the sport and possibly not in accordance with the King's English. I hope the reader will understand and appreciate that I didn't strive for academic excellence, but for telling these stories 'my way, in my own words.' Likewise, I have tried to include registrations and trademarks for companies and products that I mention in the stories; but these are sometimes difficult to locate and I'm certain there are oversights. I hope these organizations appreciate my attempts to hone their copy and patent rights, and forgive my errors. Unlike a novel, each chapter stands alone and has no connection with a previous or succeeding chapter. They are all separate stories, written as I recollect each adventure. I hope that you will enjoy reading my book." This book has 308 pages and is profusely illustrated. Overall, this is a FINE copy of this EXTREMELY SCARCE title. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
