The Sportsman's Vade-Mecum for the Himalayas free pdf Excerpt from The Sportsman's Vade-Mecum for the Himalayas: Containing Notes on Shooting, Outfit, Camp Equipment, Sporting Yarns, Etc Whenever the annual shooting season in the glorious Himalayas draws near, many an eager sportsman commences preparing his battery, kit, and stores, for a trip to one of those nullahs where the best heads are to be found, known to the favoured few. What a hurry, bustle, and race there is to get into Kashmir and push on at once, with some celebrated shikarie, to the nullah where Jones got the big ibex, or to the valley where Smith got the grand markhor, or to that part of Ladak where last year Robinson saw and stalked, unsuccessfully, the largest Ovis ammon in the world! The men from Bombay have the best of it, compared with those from Bengal, as they get a months start, and can reach the ground earlier, provided the various snow passes are open- if still closed they have to put up with long, wearying delays, which detract much from the total pleasure of the trip. As they have to leave in September, they cannot have much of a time with the red deer (Bara singh), whose horns are likely to be in velvet until the last week of that month, so there is some consolation for the Bengal men. Well, every man has an idea of his own, sometimes founded on his past experience, sometimes on that of others, and in these notes it is intended to review the most useful patterns of different things taken with him by a sportsman, and the difficulties he may encounter, founded on the experience of the writer. If others find them as useful and suitable as he did during his trips in those regions, he will feel that they were not kept in vain.
