            Blow Me Socks Off comes hot on the heels of the popular youth hunting book, Cor Blimey, Mate. Theres even more action, more fun and fright, more blood and guts, more adventure In this follow-up book of hunting stories, youll dart to and fro from the known to the great unknown. At... times all that will stand out are the whites of your eyes and the sweat on your brow, your heart beating hard. Something will be moving Maybe the only thing youll see is a crimson spot on a stags forehead before he falls forward to the ground, never to wake or the flash of his rear end as it disappears into the native bush. Maybe youll hear Storms breath cut sharply as he and his master await the first familiar green flashes in the early night sky iridescent, shimmering, the flat orange feet and the frantic shot before the wild duck falls to earth. Maybe youll be lucky and come across your own white stag, your own cunning boar, or maybe youll be unlucky and have a Camp Mutha on one of your hunting trips. Theres the Glory Hunter whos full of arrogant wit and shit; theres the boy who promises to keep his aim straight; the mighty stag that beats his enemy to death; and the wild boar that meets an untimely end when lured by a female of his own kind. Wading out in the water that reached up to my short and curlies, I grabbed the boars back leg. As it swung around, I stuck it. About 100 lb, I muttered. Two dogs scraggin at the pig as I dragged it to shore didnt make it easy. Get off there, you mongrels, I roared and kicked out at them, but they refused to let go. Once I had the boar on the stones, Smoke backed off, walked a few steps then flopped down. Only then did I notice his throat had been cut. Thats why the waters so red Extract from Meat Hunter Ive only read one book in my life from start to finish. That was Cor Blimey, Mate. I havent read another since. I cant wait for Blow Me Socks Off, because it will be my second. Jack Advance
