Pack and Rifle
A reprint of classic hunting adventures from Philip Holden, recounting his adventures as a deer culler with the New Zealand Government Forest Service. PACK AND RIFLE is the book that has inspired generations of hunters to experience all that wild New Zealand has to offer. First published in 1971 the book was immediately recognised as a classic of its genre. It recounts Philip Holden's adventures as a deer culler and contains a wealth of knowledge and hunting lore ready now to be taken up by a new generation of hunting and outdoor enthusiasts. Some of the people named in the book have moved on and the dates are old, but some things never change. the hills today are just as they were when Philip first explored them and the adventure and thrill of the hunt still resonates from the page. the book can be enjoyed by the young and upcoming hunter as well as those who will read the stories with a fond smile of nostalgia - those who have been there on younger legs and who once lived the adventures of hunting in New Zealand's mighty back country.
