Tonight , on African Hunting Forums ... I am going to share the reminiscence of the final day in my 10 year career , as a professional shikaree ( From 1961 - 1970 ) . It was the last and final shikar which I had ever guided in India , thus marking the end of an era never to return . Let us wind the clocks back , Dear Readers ...To January , 1971 . End of an era . Photograph taken by myself .
