The golden age of hunting is gone and with it the Great White Hunters. While various connotations that can be drawn around that era of blatant colonialism, it has to be acknowledged that the term Great White Hunter is not a universally complimentary one. Looking past the politics and prejudices of that era, the Great White Hunters epitomise the more admirable aspects of human character. That is, an adventurous spirit, bravery, perseverance and a strong sense of duty. Mix that with the vast unexplored wildernesses of Africa and India, the abundant big game, and you have the stuff of ripping yarns.
