A Note from the Author
This book, based as it is on my hunting life, will, I hope, inspire a younger generation of hunters and provoke in older more experienced ones, fond memories and a greater appreciation of our natural world, beyond the hustle and bustle of urban life.
While my outlook on life has changed over the years, my interest in hunting, photography and our natural environment has never lessened. The decimation of our game herds by commercial interests has brought with it a promise of a better future for our forests and alpine tussock-lands and the game animals that thrive within it.
My interest in photography and the cameras to capture these vibrant images has been with me since I began hunting large game. While the passage of time may dull the memory, a photographic record will always remain to jog the mind.
“An Affair of the Hart” makes generous use of my photographic archive to provide visual relief to a detailed record of my hunting experiences. I hope the result is more absorbing than “a coffee table” book and less dry than a wordy tome on hunting.
I hope you enjoy this result of my hunting life and may we all have good weather to shine on our wanderings
