Abstract:

"Graeme Marshall has always loved to write. This, his tenth book, is devoted to his passion for hunting ... Now in his early 60's the author still hunts quite frequently and at the time of going to print was planning yet another minor expedition. Now based in the small South Canterbury town of Pleasant Point, near Timaru, he enjoys a range of outdoor pursuits ... By the time he was old enough to obtain a firearms licence and purchase a rifle there was no doubt that he would become a hunter. The passion was inspired by his life long friend, Malcolm and a number of others, all who have made a deep impression. Marshall does not claim to be amongst the ranks of the 'gun' hunters; far from it in fact. If there could be such a beast as an 'average' hunter then he insists that he would qualify for that title. A burning ambition to have a look over the next ridge, means that he is still exploring new places and continuing to provide food for family and friends. This book contains just a few stories of an adventurous life"--Publisher's description.
