    • Hello Dr. FM, and welcome to the forum. I have also read many books about Duke, but I don't remember any detailed accounts of him hunting. I know he hunted in Africa during the film Hatari. I also know he was hunting when he accidentally shot Ward Bond in the butt. But it never went into details about the hunts. I wish I could help you more. I wish you luck in your search.

    • As I understand it. Duke and Ward were on a quail hunt. A covey flushed. Duke swang on a bird and shot Ward in the butt. Duke then carried Ward on his back to the truck. He apparently wasn’t badly hurt. Oh and Ward was shot with his own shotgun. He willed it to Duke after he passed away.
