Bullet and Shot in Indian Forest, Plain, and Hill; With Hints to Beginners in Indian Shooting - Charles Edward Mackintosh Russell 1900 - W. Thacker and Co., London - Second Edition [Same Year as first] ‘Russell, a lawyer and forester in Mysore, enjoyed his leave time hunting big game in a variety of Indian locations. In this work he relates natural history information, habitat details, and his own sporting experiences concerning various species. Bison, buffalo, yak, and tsine are included in the first chapters, then he turns his attention to hunting tiger with considerable note of his experiences in Mysore.

His shooting machans [a raised platform used in tiger hunting] were undoubtedly elaborate affairs: “I always made myself comfortable when watching, and, being a heavy smoker, I always smoke . . . a mattress and pillows and a book should be taken up on mechan [sic] . . . and I invariably drank soda-water, and not plain water, when in the jungles.”

In addition the author includes chapters on hunting elephant, bear, panther, Nilgiri ibex, and various species of deer.’ - Czech.
