Hunting is among the world's second oldest profession. From the days of caveman, who made hunting his daily pursuit for satisfaction of his food needs, to the day sportsman, who resorts to games-shooting as an exciting sport, hunting has undoubtedly been the manliest of sports. In all ages it has been a royal sport and the favourite pastime of kings and warriors. The important epoch in the history of hunting, dates back to the 19th century which produced some famous hunters who have left classic accounts of wild life and their daring feats of hunting wild animals, specially lions, tigers and elephants animals gifted by nature with extraordinary physical dimensions, vast energy and incredible resilience. The present emphasis on preservation of these spices has rightly banned killing of the rare animals. The book thus provides a historical account of how hunting was done in the past.
