Theodore Roosevelt was a man of integrity, as well as a verbose and prolific writer. Several of his works deserve a place on this list. This one, which offers a glimpse into hunting the Americas before they were tamed, is one of my favorites.

Bow hunters are a different breed: the kind that relishes the challenges of an up-close, high-stealth hunt, with all the frustrations and elation that entails. But that’s not the only thing that sets bow hunters apart from their gun-toting brethren.
Bushmen Safaris is a 22,000-acre wildlife conservancy in South Africa that has been archery-only since 1986. One of the biggest factors that sets Bushmen apart from the competition is the fact that we only take one group of clients per month during our annual seven months of hunting. By hunting this way, we are able to not only lower our hunting pressure on the animals but increases our clients' success substantially. Bushmen Safaris Hunters have taken 12 World Records, 63 Top 5 placings, 115 Top 10 placings, and 335 Top 25 placings. Bushmen's hunters continue to take high-scoring trophies as a result of this limited hunting pressure. The exceptional hunting experience at Bushmen Safaris brings back hunters’ year-after-year as we have an 80% record for return bow hunters over the past 15 years.
