About this title


ELGIN T. GATES, already a living legend in the field of international big-game hunting, won the Weatherby Big-Game trophy in 1960, the "Oscar" of the hunting world. In a vote by an international jury in 1963 to choose the six greatest living hunters in the world, he was selected with this comment: "Elgin Gates is considered by many authorities to be the greatest hunter of them all." He is perhaps the only man in history who has hunted all of the world's continents. In search of rare and exotic species of big-game in far-flung corners of the globe, he has pioneered and opened up new hunting areas, blazing trails for others to follow. He has 121 African trophies listed in Rowland Ward's Records of Big Game. Together with 43 ranking specimens from Asia and others from North America, his grand total of record-class trophies exceeds 200, an achievement unique in the hunting world. As a sportsman in other fields, notably speed-boat racing, Gates won 463 trophies and set 26 U.S., world and international records. He has won 37 Field & Stream "button" awards for game fish, and has many competitive shooting trophies for rifle, pistol and international trap shooting. He is a member of the Shikar-Safari Club, Conseil International de la Chasse, Camp Fire Club of America, Professional Hunter's Association of East Africa and others. He is also interested in archeology and has located and excavated several prehistoric Indian sites, as well as some wagons abandoned by the Donner party of 1846 during their migration to California. Gates lives with his wife, Dollie, in Southern California, where he is at work on two more books on big game, and one on American history.
