great read and good information

I really enjoy stories about real life hunts from people that can also talk guns. You no longer find such stories readily unless they are in a heavily advertised venue. These are the kind of stories that I grew up on, and the advice I looked for when a kid. And most of us will continue to have to dream about a buck like is shown on the cover. What a prize that one is!
I read this cover to cover. There are some conversations about calibers I have no interest in, such as the heavy Africa type, but most is really good stuff.
Great job Dave!
