How it works


Since its inception in 1969, the International Professional Hunting Association (IPHA) has come a long way in serving the professional hunting industry around the world. This book recounts some of the wonderfully adventurous stories told around the members' campfires, which I hope, will elicit many marvelous memories for the reader.

The founding father of IPHA- he called himself its "midwife" - was the late Baron Alexis von Goldschmidt-Rothschild, who in 1967, with Francois Edmond-Blanc and Bertram des Clers, came upon the idea of an international organisation that would speak out for ethical hunting and sportsmanlike behaviour. During a conference hosted by Winchester on game conservation and wildlife management in Monte Carlo in 1968, Harry Trueman and Tony Dyer gave form to the idea, and the decision was made to form the IPHA, with a constitution based on that of the East African Professional Hunters' Association (EAPHA).

Ths Book of the International Professional Hunters' Association, is numbered and signed, 160 of 1000 copies. This book is the twenty-third book in Safari Press's Classics in Big-Game Hunting Series.
