"Written by some of the top professional and amateur African hunters, the object of this fifth and last book in the spiral horn series - which is really three books in one - has been to produce the definitive work on hunting Western bongo, nyala and mountain nyala. To this end, a number of experienced hunters - some 31 in all - have, with three exceptions, contributed brand new chapters to the book. In addition, for the sake of completeness, there [are] two chapters on Eastern bongo, although this latter subspecies can no longer be hunted given the Kenyan ban on hunting in 1977. These contributors read like the Who's Who of hunting these species and include such icons as Robin Hurt, Garry Kelly, Rudy Lubin, Jason Roussos, the late Tony Tomkinson and Coenraad Vermaak, to name but a few. Apart from ind depth research on bongo, nyala and mountain nyala by worl renowned experts such as Jeremy Anderson and Paul Evangelista, there are chapters on 'Hints on How To' hunt these incredible animals, Rifles and Ammunition, Clothing and Equipment, and Field Preparation. Exciting accounts of successes and failures in the hunt for these elite spiral horns are included, as well as further lessons sourced from hunters of yesteryear such as Baldwin, Chamberlain, Ionides, Maydon, Mellon, Powell-Cotton and others. .The book is complemented by outstanding photographs provided by professional photographers such as Phillipe Aillery, the iconic Peter Beard, Theo Pretorius and Catherine Robertson, as well as gifted amateur photographers like Richard Flack, Murray Grant, Christophe Morio and Hakan Pohlstrand. .In brief, after reading this book you will know as much as it is possible to learn from a book about hunting bongo, nyala and mountain nyala - the elite African trophies."
