              Something to Aim for: A Hunter's Quest (Paperback)

              By Crimp, Daryl

              "From surviving snow-stinging blizards on the Southern Alps, challenging roaring stags in Westland, fending of old boars and meeting tahr in testing terrain, Crimpy is not short on adventures to share. Feel the tension mount, chill to the unseen roar, recoil to the pungent smell ...of rutting stag and squint through the wood smoke as you crumple before the campfire's glow at the end of the hunt. It is more than a collection of hunts, it is a story about a father and his son"--Publisher information.

              Any reader of New Zealands top pig hunting magazines will know Bill Westwood. Writer about all thing related to pig hunting. Pig dog trainer and accomplished video maker of all aspects of pig hunting Bill and his company Mainland Boar Hunting Ltd have set a benchmark in New Zeala...nd for excellence in the sport of pig hunting. Bill has been hunting pigs since 1990 and has learnt a lot along the way. Bills love of dogs, pigs and hunting shows through in his stories about the many different aspects of pig hunting. He does not claim to knowing everything about pig hunting and is always wanting to learn more. This was his motivation for writing stories about the many different aspects of pig hunting that he has learnt along the way. He would rather learn from someone elses mistake than make them himself. We are all going to make mistakes the important thing is that we learn from them. He says. One of the biggest mistakes we can make when pig hunting is not training our dogs properly as they are the difference between success and failure. The person who makes no mistakes makes nothing at all. A keen observer of all aspects of pig hunting and pig dog training Bill set up his own enclosed training ground with wild pigs so that he could observe and better understand the interaction of dogs and pigs in a controlled enviroment, this led to better methods of training and more successful hunting.

              Student hunter is about the three years the author spent as an undergraduate student at University of Canterbury. Hunting and exploring the hills of Canterbury and South Westland. Living as a poor student should, money was always a limiting factor. Harvesting meat was reason enou...gh to spend every last dollar on petrol to head out of Christchurch into the hills. Most of the more than 100 hunting trips undertaken in those three years started with a note or a txt passed between mates during a boring lecture where a wandering mind always ended up in the hills, much the same as it still does today. Hunting is in my blood, always has been. Ever since I can remember I have hunted however I could. My earliest memories of hunting are memories I share with my Grandad. I would join him whenever the opportunity arose to go and shoot a rabbit or trap cats and ferrets in the haysheds scattered around the family farm I grew up on. During my high school years I was introduced to big game hunting which sparked a love for not only the animals but the adventure, places and people I met wherever my hobby took me. My time was never more mine, and never more invested into hunting as it was recently when I found myself at university; organising my own way in the world. I enjoyed my days as a student living like no other period of my life and I am glad I made the most of it. Recording the hunting I did in those years has been a great project because although the memories are fresh now, I know once life in the real world kicks in they will fade into only distant dreams of a past life.--Cover.

              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

              The further adventures of Graham May. His first book Something to Roar About was a complete success, now he once again takes the reader along on some of his more memorable trips.

Friendships made, the commaraderie of th...e hunt and the joy of being out in the backblocks of New Zealand and Australia, just having fun, is what it is all about.
