    Full Description

    The coffee table book by Peter Feierabend and Sascha Numßen from the Ultimate series delves into one of humanity’s oldest activities: hunting. Hunting – The Ultimate Book sheds light on hunting from all angles for the first time.

    Feierabend and Numßen comprehensively explore the various aspects closely related to hunting in an impressive and holistic manner. Richly illustrated and accompanied by informative texts, they introduce the evolution of hunting attire, the different hunting weapons, and wildlife. They also guide readers through the grandest social hunting events that frame hunting as a pastime in high society.

    Furthermore, the two authors focus on the animal companions of hunters. Highly sensitive tracking dogs, trained birds of prey, and noble hunting horses are introduced in this in-depth photo book. Of course, hunting techniques, trophies, and the art associated with hunting are also featured in this impressive work.

    But, in addition to hunting techniques and methods, the authors also aim to depict the transformation that hunting has undergone in recent years. In times of an increasingly critical society, hunting can no longer be simply justified by tradition alone. Therefore, Feierabend and Numßen have given topics like animal protection and conservation a special place in this high-calibre and informative work, viewing them as an initiative motivation for hunting.

    For anyone wanting to learn more about equipment, wildlife, weapons, and the social background of hunting, this book is the perfect coffee table book.

    Text in English and German.
