    This forum clearly has a plethora of information, but since I'm planning on doing my first plains game hunt this summer, I would like to find some good books to read-up on a bit...

    What are some of the essentials that you recommend for hunting in Africa??

    I don't want to build a library on the topic, but sort of the top picks...

    Thanks!

    For an honest pretty much up to date view of African hunting, its hard to beat the writings of Craig Boddington. He has a number of good books and co-authored African Hunter II, an updated version of the classic 'African Hunter' by James Mellon from 1970. The old classics are great but hardly current.
