8 1/2 x 11 in. 280 pages. Hardcover. Over 700 illustrations. Hunting is truly the world's oldest profession, since it has been for millennia necessary to our very survival. However, in recent centuries, due to developments in agriculture and transportation, it has become a less vital activity for many. Nevertheless, in most parts of the world it survives and thrives as a form of sport that satisfies some of man's atavistic instincts and brings him in closer relation to nature. Here is a compendium of hunting lore and historical facts, along with an overview of how humans hunt in the various habitats of the world both for food and for sport. Insights into hunting techniques of the past and present are given along with tips on how to improve your success as a hunter. This volume, filled with full-color photographs and illustrations, was compiled by an expert group of seasoned huntsmen and naturalists and edited by the well-known wildlife authority, Robert Elman.
