So far I've read two. One by George Roof, world renown taxidermist, the other by that Canadian gentleman Scruffy Wink and I've almost finished Bill Quimby's "Sixty Years a Hunter" All have been a great read.

Any more out there?

Hi, Bakes, wave

When I was in grade one my teacher wrote on my report card that I loved to tell hunting stories and my English was getting better.


About twenty years ago I wrote my first book on my hunting experiences … decided that I had not told them all so wrote a second book. By then I had continued to live and hunt so wrote a third book.


I am now on to Chapter 29 or 30 of about my 11th book. I figure that some day when I lose all of my marbles I can read one of those books and see what I used to do for fun.


I doubt if I can be called pretentious but over two thousand pages on this great love of the hunt .. Sheesh !!! Confused Smiler

Send me a PM, my friend, with a mailing address and I will send you my latest book. Lady Margaret and I are forever grateful for your help in Darwin those years ago …

Guys,

First, thanks John for the plug on Modern Custom Guns. I have four books in circulation starting with my first one, Modern Custom Guns, followed about a year later by Modern Firearms Engraving, both published by Krause Publications. My next book was published by Safari Club International entitled Mastery of Wood & Metal, The David Miller Co. This was a very limited print run with no promotional efforts devoted to it. I received my rights to the book back from SCI and Krause did a reprint edition of the book. Finally, I did a complete update of Modern Custom Guns which Krause published as a 2nd Edition. All these books are now out-of-print but can be found on Amazon, Abe Books and other.

I also contributed substantially to a book entitled The Complete Book of Hunting which was edited by Robert Elman.I did most of the European sections of that book. It was published by a Swedish publisher and released in about ten languages I was told.I have seen versions published in The US, UK, France, and Germany. It was published in 1980 and occasionally a copy pops up on Amazon or ebay. It is a good book and copies that I've seen on ebay sold very cheaply.

I have a few copies of Mastery of Wood & Metal published by SCI, a few copies of the Krause reprint, a very few copies of the original Modern Custom Guns, and a few copies of the 2nd Edition. If interested, shoot me a PM.

TT

I have Modern Custom Guns, Mastery of Wood & Metal, and the second edition of Modern Custom Guns in my library. These are books of the highest quality in both word and photography. Also written by a man with the heart for fine custom guns. If you can get a copy of any of these, do so.
