Guys/Gals, I have just written and published my second book: Addicted to Altitude - Confessions of a Mountain Hunter. Although it is not an African story, it does have one chapter on hunting Sudan. The hardback edition is available for $32.95 which includes shipping in the US. Thanks




ADDICTED to ALTITUDE - Confessions of a Mountain Hunter
by Mark Hampton

Overview
ADDICTED TO ALTITUDE A generation ago Jack O'Connor, "dean of outdoor writers," taught us that mountain hunting was a special pursuit, a form of hunting that took us to the high, wild places in search of some of the world's most beautiful and elusive game. Today Mark Hampton follows his teaching and takes us to new heights in pursuit of wild sheep and goats amidst the world's highest mountains and most magnificent scenery. You will travel with him to the world's legendary ranges: Hindu Kush, Himalayas, Caucasus, Alps, Tien Shan, Altai, and more...from the burning Red Sea Hills of Sudan to the precipitous Southern Alps of New Zealand...and of course to our own Rocky Mountains, Cassiars, Alaska Range, and the harsh desert mountains of the American Southwest. Mark Hampton, career educator, former Missouri State Representative, All-American trapshooter, longtime hunting guide, and legendary handgun hunter, takes you along on what evolved as his greatest passion: High-country hunting for the wild sheep and goats of the world. From the diminutive chamois to the mighty argali, from desert bighorn to Rocky Mountain goat, you will feel your lungs burn as you climb the high ridges and feel your heart race as you make the final stalk. Addicted to Altitude will earn its place in the annals of hunting literature...and will validate for a new generation the special feeling of climbing the heights for the great game to be found.

About the Author
Mark Hampton is one of those fortunate individuals who grew up in a family of avid hunters. He was raised in rural, south Missouri where hunting and fishing were a way of life. The local school closed for deer season and still does to this day. Mark's father was serious about hunting taking polar bear, grizzly, dall sheep, moose, bighorn, mule deer, elk, and many other North American trophies. The passion for hunting ran deep in the family. Today, Hampton has hunted in twenty five countries on six continents and continues to explore remote areas searching for game. He has taken over one hundred and forty different species of big game with a handgun alone. Far from being a "collector", Mark is passionate about hunting. His enthusiastic dedication and goal-oriented drive has led him to various mountain ranges in pursuit of difficult and sought after big game.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
