DEADLY ENCOUNTERSby: Craig Boddington
Boddington has done a masterful job of unearthing the facts and sometimes gory details of what happens when a nasty with sharp teeth, strong claws, blunt hoofs, or colossal strength decides to close in on a hunter and see the business through to a bloody, pulpy end. His stories of hunts gone wrong include wild lions or those found in enclosures; bull elephants in musth or cranky cows on the defensive; leopards who do not take kindly to being shot; bears-no matter what size or color; and “tame” water buffaloes that have taken over the neighborhood and now see humans as intruders. Color photos, 6×9 inches, 277 pgs.
Safari, Africa & World Adventure
Boddington discusses and dissects the incidents to tell you why something went wrong so that you, the hunter, won’t make the same mistake. Even though this is not an overly sensational tome with imaginary critters crunching on human bones like Rice Crispies behind each rock, we venture a guess that after reading the stories in Boddington’s new book that the next time you go on a hunt you just might step out of your tent a little more cautiously.
