I have actually been wanting to write an article like this for a fairly long time , but for some reason or another , l never actually got around to doing it . I consider myself most fortunate that countless honorable members of African Hunting forums have very warmly received the articles written by myself and my learned colleagues and compatriots , Sergeant Kawshik Rahman and Captain Kareem Hossain Newaz about shikar in India in the 1960s ( our hey day ) . At the same time , l have also been highly amazed by all of the changes which came to the world of hunting in the last 50 years , many of which came to my eyes after l joined these forums. So , today l thought about doing something a little different ( and hopefully interesting ) . I am going to do a step by step comparison of different aspects of hunting and how things in our time were different from the world of hunting in modern times . @Captain Nwz , please forgive me for copying your format of writing . I really think highly of it and prefer it to my own writing format , greatly . This article will have the following sub headings : * Ethics * Tactics * Calibres * Bullets * Rifles * Costs * Resources * General remarks Without further ado , let us begin , dear readers . Here is a photograph l had taken of a group of beaters whom we had hired to organize a beat for flushing out a royal Bengal tiger for a client , during a shikar. Beating today , is practically unheard of , in modern times . I hope that you will all enjoy this article as it unfolds.
