Take a Look Inside 'The Hunt Smart System'

View detailed pages from inside 'The Hunt Smart System'


This book is the culmination of almost forty years studying Sambar.

My new book 'The Hunt Smart System' is an A to Z blueprint for successfully hunting these Big Brown Deer. It is presented in chronological order just as I teach it on my Hunt Smart® course.

It brings together into one succinct book the most important information from our SOTS trilogy, 18 issues of our magazine and what I teach on my course, including my latest conclusions and a lot more that I do not have time to teach on the course.

The high level of success experienced by countless participants after attending our course proves that my Hunt Smart system is highly effective. You can read over 60 Success Stories from course participants on this website. Summaries of many of these stories have been included to prove the effectiveness of the tactics that I recommend.

This book does not repeat the content of Vol 1, 2 & 3. Instead I refer you to the Volume and page number so you can read more about the subject I am discussing. This new book includes all my latest conclusions about Sambar biology, ecology, behaviour and the most effective strategies for hunting them.

This knowledge will enable you to develop a plan, apply the overlays as taught which narrow down where the deer are likely to be to less than 10% of the forest. And there they are. Suddenly you have all the time in the world. You calm down, range the distance, take steady aim and make an instant one shot kill.

Sambar Shikar doesn’t get any better than this.

No expense has been spared in the production of this book as we were determined to make it the best it could possibly be. I took a 2.5hr helicopter flight over the High Country and the Sub-alpine, plus I spent an incredible 14 days in the Indian Jungle. During these amazing trips I took countless highly educational photographs and made numerous observations of these Big Brown Deer. The most educational and inspirational of these have been included in this book.
