COLLECTOR ITEM BOOKS BY RON THOMSON: ORDER NOW!!

In 1959, aged 20, Ron Thomson joined the Rhodesian (now Zimbabwean) Department of National Parks and Wildlife management as its first cadet game ranger. Over the following 24 years he rose through the ranks to become the Provincial Game Warden-in-charge of Hwange National Park, one of Africa's biggest and most prestigious game reserves.

Big game hunting was his passion, and throughout his service, he was given incredible hunting opportunities.

He once calculated that he has spent more than 25 000 hours in pursuit of Africa's elephants, buffaloes and black rhinos; the reckoning being determined ONLY from the time he and his tracker picked up the spoor of the animal he was hunting, to the time he pulled the trigger and killed it (or captured it). That equates to 5.7 years of tracking and shooting big game animals, from dawn to dusk, every day. 

He also commanded, and led, the three hunters of the culling team that removed 2 500 elephants and 300 hippos from the Gonarezhou National Park in the early 1970s. Together the three hunters, acting in unison, and using military NATO-7.62 mm self-loading rifles, brought down herd after herd of elephants, each one numbering between 30 and 50 animals, in the incredible time of just 60 seconds.

Ron Thomson must surely, therefore, be one of the most experienced African big game hunters alive today.

PLEASE USE PHASA AS A REFERENCE WHEN ORDERING!


His life story, in a series of six big game hunting memoir books, is now complete.

(No.2) STAND YOUR GROUND;
