Look around you and you will see, I believe, what a towering achievement that was. In sum, then, Finn Aagaard was a man complete. He had all the parts that I calculate as laudable in humankind. In the twenty years, more or less, that I knew him, he only disappointed me once: He was not able to stay long enough. My First and Last Hunts with My Father by Harald Aagaard, Major, USMC I’ve often wished that for just one day I could go back and relive the fond memories of my youth—memories of a happy family under one roof; the simple, carefree life of a young boy growing up naïve to the concerns of the world.
I liked it, and I immediately liked the handsome people who lived there. Authentic friendliness and inborn courtesy will do that to me. Finn and Berit Aagaard had come to the United States after hunting was banned in Kenya, where they had operated a prosperous safari outfit. The Bar-O’s exotics included aoudad, mouflon, sika deer, and maybe a couple of other species that I cannot recall. Finn handled the fieldwork, though Berit was as capable a guide as might be needed. Mostly, she started running that big house before sunrise; after sundown she called us to dine at an elegantly laid table—crystal, lovely china, genuine silver, ironed napkins, and food that was merely sublime.
He also has more of a capacity to determine what to do about it. In numbers of hunters killed, buffalo may outrank the elephant, but this is because the buffalo is hunted largely for meat, and in large numbers, thus making for more contacts between hunter and hunted. There are those who place lion first among the dangerous adversaries, but Finn was not one. He respected the lion, but one had never caught him, and that doubtless affected his opinion. The rhino has indeed killed a number of people, including the renowned American professional Charlie Cottar.
