Price: $40.00
Qty in Cart: none



ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
Over the course of nearly 30 years of African hunting, one of the things you learn is the animal that excites you the most. For Craig, that is buffalo first and foremost. He has hunted them in a dozen African countries and has been very lucky with big buffalo. But whether a monster or just an average bull, there is nothing more exciting than getting close to buffalo. In this this book, he shares with the reader a wide range of topics including hunting destinations, trophy judgment, shot placements, hunting techniques, “other” as well as Cape buffalo…and more. Whether you have hunted buffalo or just plan you, he is sure you will enjoy reading this book as much as he did writing it. Hardcover, 6"x9", dust jacket, 256 pages

Safari Rifles II - [Hardcover Book]

Code: SABO-005
Price: $50.00
Qty in Cart: none



ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
In 1990 Craig Boddington and Safari Press launched what proved to be one of the most popular and enduring books on rifles and calibers for Africa ever written, going through no less than twelve printings. To write an in-depth book about a complex matter, one needs experience. When Craig Boddington wrote Safari Rifles in 1989, he had experience, but today his name has become synonymous with African big-game hunting. Added to his vast experience is the exponential increase in the number of rifles, calibers, bullets, and accessories that are available to the hunter going on a big-game safari in Africa today—not to mention the amazing resurgence of both double rifles and .416s. Given these factors, it was imperative to completely revise and update Safari Rifles and to include all new photos.

Many writers proclaim their knowledge of African hunting, but few have the true in-depth experience that comes from thousands of days afield. Boddington’s Safari Rifles II is a rare gem of a book, offering solid information based on vast experience and insight gathered over the last thirty years of hunting on the Dark Continent.


Tracks Across Africa - [Hardcover Book]

Code: SABO-006
Price: $40.00
Qty in Cart: none



ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
Craig Boddington’s first African hunting book, From Mount Kenya to the Cape, chronicled his hunting exploits from 1977 to 1986. Since that time he has written a book every ten years on his African experiences. Now he’s back with Tracks Across Africa, which chronicles his third decade of African hunting. He actually hunted in about twice as much territory and for twice as many days during the last decade, 1997–2006, as he did during his first decade. He explains the upturn in time this last decade to the need to support his African TV hunting shows with on-the-ground hunting footage. But we suspect there is a more basic truth: He simply loves hunting in the Dark Continent—its forests, velds, people, and animals. What serious big-game hunter has not at least thought of Africa with its tremendous expanses, its great game fields, and some of the mightiest (and smallest) animals found on earth? Kenya was the first country he hunted in back in 1977, and there is actually a section on hunting in Kenya in this book. Pretty much every country open to hunting in this period saw Craig Boddington walking on its soil: C.A.R., Chad, Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Tanzania, South Africa, Ethiopia, and Mozambique. The animals pursued are as diverse and range from mountain nyala, elephant, and leopard to bongo, and, of course, buffalo. There is hardly a safari where he does not hunt buffalo. In these past ten years, he has hunted more in Africa than most people experience in a lifetime. Hey, we can all dream, but in the meantime we can read about it.


Where Lions Roar - [Hardcover Book]

Code: SABO-007
Price: $35.00
Qty in Cart: none



ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
Finally, Craig Boddington's long-awaited sequel to From Mt. Kenya to the Cape—the story of Boddington's hunts in the Dark Continent during the last ten years is here! Since writing his first African book, he has shot big game in Ethiopia, the Central African Republic, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Zambia, and Botswana—an unparalleled hunting accomplishment. From the steaming jungles of the Congo basin in search of the elusive bongo to the arid bushveld of Zimbabwe for leopard, Boddington pursues a large array of animals. America's most popular international hunter/writer tracks after such exotic animals as the mountain nyala, giant forest hog, sitatunga, giant eland, and a host of other game with unusual names. Of course he hunts such "normal" animals as the Cape buffalo, lion, leopard, and elephant, too! If you like Boddington's magazine articles, you'll love his latest book!


Boddington on Lion - [DVD]

Code: SABO200-010
Price: $40.00
Qty in Cart: none



ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
To Craig Boddington the lion is the symbol of wild Africa, one of the most exciting of all hunts, and one of Africa’s great adventures. Over the past few years partners Tim Danklef, Dave Fulson, and Craign Boddington have produced DVDs on buffalo, leopard, and elephant…but for a long time they never thought they would do a film on lion. Gathering footage for several years now, and thanks to a lot of effort and a lot of help from friends in the safari industry, they reached a point where they were comfortable to produce a lion film that would equal the quality of previous productions.

Top African outfitters and professional hunters contribute their expertise as they lead us to numerous trophy lions, all captured on film in this exciting, action packed DVD. We believe Boddington On Lion will be final word on hunting the King Of Beasts.
