Kevin Robertson is a Professional Hunter and vet who "has created the most comprehensive work ever undertaken to show the anatomical features for all classes of African game - from the largest ...elephant and buffalo to the large cats, to the antelopes (eland, sable, etc.), and finally to the smallest game animals [the] duiker and warthog. Each animal is shown in a colour field-picture as well as a colour 'ghost' view that illustrates the shoulder bones, heart, lungs, and brain so you will know precisely where to place your shot". Chapters include: Basic game animal anatomy; Practical field ballistics for the African game hunter; Killing critieria; Terminal bullet performance; Bullet selection - 'soft' versus 'solid'; Thick-skinned dangerous game - elephant, buffalo, hippopotamus, rhinoceros; The thin-skinned carnivores - lion, leopard, Nile crocodile, spotted hyena; Large, non-dangerous game - giraffe, eland, greater kudu, zebra, sable antelope, waterbuck, wildebeest, oryx/gemsbok, hartebeest; Medium-sized game - impala, bushbuck, springbok, warthog; Small antelope - duiker, klipspringer; Trophy handling; Natural camouflage; Calibre selection - a one-, two- or three-rifle hunt.
