Have read dozens of hunting books, these are by far the most enjoyable I've ever seen. They are more like "coffee table" books, loaded with photos of the most fabulous trophy rooms ever built. Well worth the money....should be in every hunters library.

Anything by Jack O' Conner is worth reading... twice,

My favorite by far is "The hunting Rifle",
followed by "The Art of Hunting Big game"

They've all been out of print for some time, its a real shame as their the highest quality hunting books I've ever read. You can usually snag them off amazon, also I've found a few at used book store's

I'd suggest the late Peter Hathaway Capstick. Hunting isn't his only topic, but it's a central one. NB: he' pretty Africa-centric.

If hunting Africa interests you I suggest:
W.D.M. Bell (Karamojo Bell), Peter H. Capstick, Col. J.H. Patterson or Col. Jim Corbett. Capstick "death in the long grass" is a great read.

Hunting North America:
Anything by Jack O’Connor, Elmer Keith and this may draw some heat but I have always enjoyed Jim Zumbo’s books.

I highly recommend Hunting Adventures Worldwide by Jack Atcheson SR. Probably my favorite hunting book ever.

My favorites are Capstick, Keith and Ruark - in that order. My wife also bought me "The Man-Eaters Of Tsavo" by Colonel Patterson a few years ago. It's the book the movie "The Ghost And The Darkness" is based on. It's pretty good and the movie didn't stray too awfully far from it. Except, as you probably already know, Remington, the character played by Michael Douglas in the movie, was fictional.

I'll second these:

Anything by Jack O' Conner is worth reading... twice,

My favorite by far is "The hunting Rifle",
followed by "The Art of Hunting Big game"

Then, ANYTHING by Elmer Keith.

Elk, by Jim Zumbo.
