Hunting the Spiral Horns - Bushbuck, the Little Big Buck

August 2014 | Book

Hunting The Spiral Horns: Bushbuck, the Little Big Buck

It is odd that the smallest of the spiral horns, bushbuck, should end up being the third and biggest book in the five book series on all the 30 members of the extended spiral horn family but I guess that says something about this beautiful but pugnacious yet compact buck.

Available in September 2014. Pre-orders accepted.

Includes Peter Flack's response below.
Kicker: It is unfair to target game farming as an “economic bubble”. This industry creates jobs and makes a very healthy contribution to the economy. As a game rancher and breeder of scarce game I would like to respond to ...

This story takes me back many, many years. To about 1984 as I remember it. The time of a devastating drought that tortured our South African Lowveld for months on end. It was pathetic to see the game, many of them skin and bone, tottering around in search of non-existent food and water. But I am ...

Who Shot the Donkey?
