During the course of his hunts, he shot a Grand Slam and a Super Slam of Sheep and the Big Five as well as all the spiral-horned antelope of Africa. His busiest year was 1988, when he made thirteen major hunts! One of his most grueling hunts was for a desert bighorn in Baja California, which completed his Grand Slam.
Alward's hunts were always full of adventure: His polar bear hunt was delayed when his guide's daughter murdered her boyfriend, and on the opposite end of the globe, Alward landed in Zambia during a rebellion, when dissenters seized a TV station and the government rolled tanks out into the streets. Just before he finally reached his hunting camp on that trip, local wardens killed several poachers.He was also on a hunt when his guide was killed in a car crash. He hunted in Sudan during one of its civil wars. All in all, hes had an adventurous time. An avid conservationist, Alward has sponsored a variety of youth programs, built lakes and shooting ranges, and planted a million trees around his lodge in New Brunswick, Canada. As you'll see, Alward, the only Canadian to ever receive the Weatherby Big Game Trophy, has packed a lot of living into the eighteen years covered by this book.
