Someone once said, “A professional hunter started his career with very little money, a new rifle and two young trackers. At the end, he had no money, an old rifle and two old trackers.” But what adventures they had. It’s been a long road from Missouri’s back woods to Africa’s game fields, but George Hoffman made that trip and his life has never been the same.
In addition to a long, successful hunting career he’s developed the popular big game cartridge; the .416, a cartridge respected and used by clients and professionals alike.
This is, indeed, a very candid big game hunting book. And, yes, there is a long story on the why and how of the .416 development. The chapter on Safari Rifles, Bullets, etc. is now considered a classic on the subjects.
