The IPHA was formed in 1969 to promote ethical hunting among clients and professional hunters around the world. The founding father of IPHA—he called himself its "midwife"—was the late Alexis von Goldschmidt-Rothschild, who, in 1967, with Francois Edmond-Blanc and Bertrand des Clers, came upon the idea of an international organization for professional hunters. During a conference hosted by Winchester on game conservation and wildlife management in Monte Carlo in 1968, Harry Tennison and Tony Dyer gave form to the idea of the IPHA, with a constitution based on that of the East African Professional Hunters' Association (EAPHA). Since that time the IPHA has become the most respected of all professional hunting organizations, and its members truly represent the top of their profession. This, then, is a remarkable collection of stories by a unique group of people, whose exciting lives and everyday brushes with death are an exotic change from the normal routine of life. The editor found some of the most interesting and true big-game hunting stories from the membership of the last thirty years to include in this anthology. You will find thrilling stories on giant brown bears in the frozen North, huge argali sheep from the depths of Central Asia, man-eating lions from Central Africa, swamp-dwelling elephants from Botswana, snow-white Dall sheep near the Arctic Circle, buffalo on the African veld, and polar bear on the permanently frozen ice. The stories in this book are true-to-life adventures that are often more exciting than fiction! Contributors include Adelino Pires, Sergio Almeida, Rudy Lubin, Mark Kyriacou, Fred Webb, Joe Klutch, Jerome Knap, John Brandt, Don Grobler, Joe Coogan, Jack Atcheson, John Jackson III, Gary Walker, and many others. This limited edition is signed by no less than EIGHT members of the IPHA who also contributed a story to this book. They include Craig Boddington, Brooke ChilversLubin, Peter Johnstone, John Kingsley-Heath, Joe Klutsch, Terry Pierson, Tony Sanchez-Arino, and Coenraad Vermaak. This book represents a unique opportunity to get a glimpse into the lives of the most sought-after professional hunters of the latter part of the twentieth century.
