I was introduced to bird hunting by my father, Dr. Jim Cameron, at a very early age. In fact, he was so excited about the arrival of his first and only son in April of 1970 that he purchased a Beretta S56E for the little bundle of joy. I started using it towards the latter stages of the Seventies and the rest, as they say in the classics, is history.
I come from a hunting family background with both my father and my uncle being active in the hunting world since the early sixties and both having achieved various milestones. My dad is past president of the South African Hunters’ Association and Uncle Mike plied his tried under the famous Eric Rundgren.
I have a passion for hunting and bird hunting in particular and in a book given to me by an old client and good friend, Glenn Chrismann, I found this quote which sums up the emotions, excitement, and anticipation of bird hunting for me:
“The dog advances…wet nose screening a hundred scents for that one scent , potential presence of which gives meaning to the whole landscape …” Aldo Leupold
