More Information
Dr. Joe Greenfield, a quail-hunter-at-heart, was enticed to Africa by his longtime friend and hunting buddy, professional hunter Joey O?Bannon. What Joey couldn?t change was his quirky attitude toward becoming a big-game hunter. While Bwana Babu (Master Grandfather) eventually became very excited about hunting Cape buffalo - he even proclaimed himself to be an ?Africa nut? ? he never became interested in anything other than the Big Five. In fact, this enthusiastic quail hunter has killed both record-book-size hartebeest and wildebeest for lion bait, but then showed no interest in even having a picture taken to document these kills. In this regard, he is quite different from most gung-ho hunters to the Dark Continent who want their every kill measured, re-measured, and entered into competition for every ?slam? imaginable.

During these safaris, Bwana Babu developed a keen insight into the workings and abilities of a number of native trackers. From his perspective, watching pointers perform is the essence of quail hunting. In a similar fashion, observing the trackers skillfully follow spoor is more exciting than the actual killing of dangerous game. Bwana Babu has developed a close friendship with a number of these individuals, especially a man named Makanyanga.

Dr. Greenfield has killed two elephants, two lions, over a dozen trophy-size Cape buffaloes, and a couple of leopards. On three occasions, his encounters with Cape buffaloes have been hair-raising, documenting their well-deserved reputation as dangerous game. All of these adventures have been meticulously (and frequently humorously) described in this expanded version of his original hunting memoirs.

Using his Holland & Holland double rifle on most of his twelve safaris, Bwana Babu recently completed his quest for the Big Five. That is quite an accomplishment for that reluctant and eccentric big-game hunter nicknamed ?Master Grandfather.?
