    In India The best known hunter was a gentleman by the name of Jim Corbett.

    He was first and foremost a conservationist to the point where one of the best game sanctuary's is named after him. ( Corbett Park) If you do enjoy reading about hunting in a by gone era I would strongly reccomend:

    Amazon

    The Man Eaters of Kumaon
    The Man Eating Leopard of Rudyaparag
    The Temple Tiger

    In all he did shoot more than a 100 Tigers, including probably the top ten man eaters including the Champawat Tiger with a recorded 436 kills.

    If you do get a chance and do visit India, instead of the Taj mahal go to the Corbett Park and gaze upon herd of deer numbering upto 500, or wild elephants and if you're lucky a glimpse of the vanishing Tiger in the wild. You cant shoot them though, but you will enjoy the trip.That I can guarantee. A little goolge search might help you finding your way there et al...
