AUTHOR: Paddy King-Fretts
Staghunter
Staghunter
  • Description

“The man was pure genius … all I could ever do was to try and emulate him.” - The late Captain Ronnie Wallace M.F.H.

Ernest Bawden was born in 1878, the sixth of ten children. He first staghunted at the age of three and was in at the kill. In the Boer war he stalked and killed an enemy sniper: later that year he won promotion on the field of battle. In 1904 he began thirty-three years of unsurpassed service with The Devon and Somerset Staghounds.

In WWII, aged sixty-two, he led a mounted troop of The Home Guard. Bawden died in 1943, killed tragically in a farm accident. Ernest Bawden was one of the greatest huntsmen of all time. ‘Staghunter' written by Paddy King-Fretts, pulls no punches. Bawden’s character is exposed critically and without compassion; nothing less would do the man justice. By the end the reader knows exactly what it was that made him the supreme huntsman he became – arguably the greatest of them all.

“This is a story of a genius … truly a legend in his own lifetime, and deserves to be read all who seek to learn the secret of excellence.” From the Foreword by Baroness Mallalieu. April 2004.
