    Peter Byrne is one in the same of the guy who has been hunting Bigfoot in America all these years He was a big game hunter in India at the tail end of hunting in that country This is an interesting well written book of one of the only big game hunters to ever operate in Nepal He goes from hunting to setting up game preserves good read
