            I'm often asked what inspired me to take up writing yarns about the mishaps and mayhem that I have endured while venturing into the New Zealand bush. In truth, I am an average to poor hunter who has had more hunting cock-ups than the rest of the country combined. For every deer I...'ve successfully shot, dozens have escaped only to hide in the bush peering back at me, clearly laughing at my stupidity. I have always managed to see the funny side of the situation and had a good old laugh at myself. I began to wonder if my stuff-ups, with a bit of humour and mayhem thrown in, might just make for good reading the oddball, unusual, humorous, weird and fun side of hunting and gave it a go.

            PACK AND RIFLE is the book that has inspired generations of hunters to experience all that wild New Zealand has to offer. First published in 1971 the book was immediately recognised as a classic of its genre. It recounts Philip Holden's adventures as a deer culler and contains a ...wealth of knowledge and hunting lore ready now to be taken up by a new generation of hunting and outdoor enthusiasts. Some of the people named in the book have moved on and the dates are old, but some things never change. The hills today are just as they were when Philip first explored them and the adventure and thrill of the hunt still resonates from the page. The book can be enjoyed by the young and upcoming hunter as well as those who will read the stories with a fond smile of nostalgia -- those who have been there on younger legs and who once lived the adventures of hunting in New Zealand's mighty back country.

            Stag Doo by Al Lester, the master of the hunting genre, is full of rip-roaring yarns for those with a good keen sense of humour and a love for New Zealand's wild outdoors. Once described as 'Barry Crump meets Fred Dagg', 'Big Al' Lester is the modern-day master of the hunting ge...nre. His books are for those with a good keen sense of humour and a love for New Zealand's wild outdoors. 'Many times I have sat by a campfire with its coarse smoke etching into my eyes and tears streaming down my face. The tears not caused by the smoke, though, but by laughing so hard at the oddball, strange, hilarious or simply outright bizarre yarns told by my hunting mates. It never ceases to amaze me how readily my hunting colleagues and others dob in their mates to disclose their mishaps, balls-ups, cunning plans and frequent disasters. Each story is told with great relish, and often, I suspect, with liberal helpings of embellishment. For every story recounted, the often embarrassed subject gets a right of reply, and in turn dobs in his cobber with an equally or more embarrassing yarn, and so it goes. As the evenings pass and the tide-line in the whisky bottle drops, the yarns get increasingly more hilarious. This book contains a number of yarns gleaned from these fireside sessions, and a few from other interesting characters I have had the good fortune to encounter.'

            Something to Aim for: A Hunter's Quest (Paperback)

            By Crimp, Daryl

            "From surviving snow-stinging blizards on the Southern Alps, challenging roaring stags in Westland, fending of old boars and meeting tahr in testing terrain, Crimpy is not short on adventures to share. Feel the tension mount, chill to the unseen roar, recoil to the pungent smell ...of rutting stag and squint through the wood smoke as you crumple before the campfire's glow at the end of the hunt. It is more than a collection of hunts, it is a story about a father and his son"--Publisher information.
