Jack O'Conner...

First read his Outdoor Life articles about 1955, then read at least 2 of his books.

I loved the way he told stories. Began with nearly ready to take the shot, then went back in time to the beginning - how he decided to pursue this particular quarry - then followed the time line step by step until nearly ready to take the shot. Then he took the shot, and finished both the quarry and the story.
Artillery lends dignity to what would otherwise be but a vulgar brawl.
