The birds flourished and soon expanded their range to include the American West and Midwest.

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.
