The Perfect Shot, North America: Shot Placement for North American Big Game by Craig Boddington

Accurate shot placement is the key to achieving clean kills on big game. In The Perfect Shot, North America: Shot Placement for North American Big Game, Craig Boddington joins artist Laurie O’Keefe to provide detailed explanations and in-the-field photographs that show exactly where you must shoot to get a clean kill.

The book covers antlered game such as deer and caribou, showing shots from various angles, and it also shows you where to shoot sheep, goats, hogs, bears, cougar, and even walrus. Detailed photos with cutaway illustrations of the vitals show you exactly where to place your shot, and why. The author also provides information about which rifles, calibers, and bullets to use for each species. The hook is a reference no responsible hunter of North American big game should be without.

The Perfect Shot, North America is available as a beautifully illustrated 8.5×11 hardcover with dust jacket for $39.95 from Safari Press, 800/451-4788; safaripress.com.
