Huns Hun Hunting from the Author: Ben O. Williams. Hungarian partridge were first introduced to Saskatchewan 100 years ago. The birds flourished and soon expanded their range to include the American West and Midwest. Only in the last several decades have hunters turned serious attention to these tremendous game birds, but due to their fickle and often mysterious nature, the challenge has proven difficult at best for the majority of us. Ben O. Williams, however, has been writing about and hunting Huns for over 30 years, having accumulated over 5,000 hours afield in their pursuit with his ever evolving line of Brittany spaniels. Ben is the most accomplished and eloquent mentor for Hungarian partridge hunters presently found on planet earth, and this information packed book is the proof. Don't lend it to anyone, and don't lose it, for it provides you with all the distilled knowledge required to attain consistent success on your own Hun hunts.
