Theodore Roosevelt’s Safari


I find the revelation (Feb 2020 issue) quite curious, that Roosevelt was not a very good or ethical hunter and took multiple and long shots at game. Here is a quote from his 1893 book, The Wilderness Hunter, that I saw on a shooting forum: “No possible rapidity of fire can atone for habitual carelessne­ss of aim with the first shot”.

Good advice, which he appears not always to have followed. – SB, Western Cape
