Title: Harry Selby, Premier African Hunter Dies at age 92
Post by: danno50 on April 21, 2018, 06:48:15 PM
Harry Selby was among some of the great African hunters that was lucky to experience Africa during the "Golden Age" of hunting. He was one of the pioneers who helped forge the African Safari experience, along with Capstick, Ruark, Teddy Roosevelt, and others who helped fill the imaginations of many a young man with their exploits and writings. I'm sure the Nation members who have had the opportunity to hunt Africa will never forget the experience and were probably influenced by the romanticized adventures of some of these men. Selby and the others hunted in the Golden age of what was called, The Dark Continent because of it's mystery and savagery. Here's a short tribute.

Yes he was one of the last great white hunters in Africa. He spent a lot of the time opening up Africa and paving the way for everyday hunters to head over there.
