Stalking dangerous big game with Peter Capstick

"Ever wonder what a big game hunt with Peter Capstick would be like? If you're looking at this video, you've probably read some of his books. This DVD is one of a series of hunting/safari videos made with legendary author/hunter Peter Capstick in the late 1980s. In this video, Capstick accompanies the writer/director of the video series, Ken Wilson, on a hunt for the white rhino in South Africa. The series as a whole is somewhat of a mixed bag, and definitely overpriced in my view. This video is one of the best in the series, though. Capstick does most of the talking and it is mostly anecdotes about hunting, the dangers of hunting rhinos, a few funny stories. He talks a bit about the oriental practice of using rhino horn as an aphrodisiac and claims to have tried it himself (he didn't feel it really made much difference!). Capstick, Ken Wilson, and two guides stalk several rhinos in this video, taking several other game animals before the big confrontation at the end. There is an extensive narration in the beginning of this video about the pre-Ice Age ancestors of the rhino, some more recent history of the near extinction of the rhino, and more recent conservation efforts that have brought back a huntable population. Capstick also explains some of the differences between the black rhino and the white rhino. The cinematography is nice too, I've never been to South Africa, but it must be very beautiful. If you like hunting, PHCs literature, or safari in general, I think you will find this both informative and entertaining. I only give it four stars as it is something that most people will not watch over and over again."
