Mark Ferdinand has started 2019 with an entrance into the world of hunting books. Mark’s latest publication is “Wild Boar: A Case for the Most Beautiful Game Animal”
Pursued throughout time by kings and the common man, the wild boar has intrigued and beguiled hunters throughout the world. With so much sensational news of problem wild hog populations and unwanted interaction with humans, a need has arisen to remind us all of the nobility that surrounds this ancient and prized game animal. He is near the point of being reviled in some quarters. Author Mark Ferdinand pays tribute to the wild boar and makes the case for elevating its status to that of the most respected wild game species that hunters give chase to.
A humble hunter makes the case for wild boar being the most beautiful game animal.
Mark first became fascinated with wild boar during childhood trips to Germany. Here he would visit with family but also learn about the rich history of hunting in the Black Forest and other parts of Bavaria. While visiting castles in the surrounding area he would marvel at the tapestries glorifying the hunt and tribute payed to the wild boar. An uncle showed him the deep traditions of hunting boar in the old country.
Mark Ferdinand lives on the South Texas coast with his wife, daughter, and son. Fishing the surf, hunting, gardening, tiki carving, and DIY projects occupy his spare time. He has written on the topic of autism spectrum disorder, reptiles, mythology, and hunting.
