Author: Kevin Doctari Robertson
Publisher: SAFARI PRESS, Jan 2007

Kevin Doctari Robertson is one of Africa?s best known authors & the person who launched the idea of a showing a "ghost view" of the vital organs on African big game. His books have sold tens of thousands of copies. Some of his fans will recall that his very first love (besides his wife!) is the African buffalo for which he has respect, admiration & which he likes to hunt more than any other animal. & here, in this brand new book with all original materials he has given us the most comprehensive guide to shot placement for the African buffalo that goes well beyond even his own Perfect Shot book. He talks about his favorite calibers, what constitutes a good trophy & when a buffalo should not be shot. He talks of hunting the cow buffalo, equally as dangerous as a bull, & he gives us his views & insights as to the suitability of the various rifle types as well as bullets. Many books on African hunting profess to deal with it all but Robertson deals with only one subject: buffalo. In fact he deals with only one subspecies of the African buffalo: the Cape or southern buffalo, the largest of the subspecies & the one with the meanest & most ferocious reputation.
This book, his first since he wrote his best seller over 10 years ago, has it all: the African tracker, bow hunting, caliber choices, picking the right bullet (a very interesting subject & well covered), selecting rifle sights, trophy evaluation, anatomical features, differences between bulls & cows in the field, distribution & natural history, hunting accessories & more. All of it illustrated with some of the most magnificent Cape buffalo photographs ever seen by world-class wildlife photographer Catherine Robertson. No African hunter will want to be without this book.
