Hardcover, 256 pages.

This lavishly illustrated book documents the best of Stuart Williams’ 40-year love affair with bird-hunting in Argentina. Stuart was preceded only by Hollywood actor Robert Taylor as one of hundreds of American sportsmen who have discovered the incredible, high-volume shooting for ducks and geese, doves and pigeons in the region surrounding Buenos Aires.

On these 256 pages, you’ll join Stuart on his most spectacular shoots where clouds of doves darken the sky and where seemingly endless flocks of ducks and geese stream down from the heavens. After these amazing moments in the field, all documented in more than 230 color photographs, you’ll join Stuart, along with his longtime friend Skip Hoagland and other acclaimed sportsmen, back at fabulous Argentine estancias where you’ll share his passion for fine wines, delectable foods and vintages. Come along with Stuart Williams as he visits the world’s most storied and prestigious wingshooting lodges. It is a journey unlike no other.

About the Author:
Stuart Williams completed Argentina Wingshooting just months before his death
in 2022. It is the last of three books he wrote on bird hunting in foreign countries. Over his 40-year career, Williams made more than 250 hunting expeditions in Mongolia, Denmark, Romania, Russia, India, Turkey, the U.S. and some 25 other countries. He made more than 50 wingshooting trips to Argentina and 40 to Mexico.

Williams held Advanced Master ranking in the Photographic Society of America, and competed and served as a judge in major international photographic exhibitions. He held degrees from Yale University and the University of California and served as a consultant to several airlines on the promotion of international hunting tourism.

Stuart wrote innumerable articles and more than a half-dozen books on hunting around the world. During his long career as a freelance writer, he also served as a shooting editor for Field & Stream magazine for which he researched and wrote about the latest developments in guns and shooting throughout the U.S. and the world. Stuart’s other primary interests were eclectic: money and investments, opera, 18-century music and ancient history.
