How it works


A Professional Hunter (PH) started his career with very little money, a new rifle & 2 young trackers. At the end he had no money, an old rifle, and 2 old trackers. But oh what great adventures they enjoyed. George Hoffman did all that and a little more. In addition to a long and successful career he developed one of the most popular big game hunting cartridges, the Hoffman.416. Whether the hunt had been easy or hard, George stood up to the task. He tells his story in his own inimitable style as well as a candid look at hunting. He's added to his legacy with this enjoyable book.
