Pheasant Shooting is a comprehensive guide to the sport that covers all aspects from the formal driven shoot to the simplest of rough shoots. This book offers the readers straightforward, practical advice on the choices available to them including guns and ammunition, clothing, gundogs and the different types of shoot where they can take part. Rather than laying down hard and fast rules the author sets out the range of options available and then guides his readers so that they can make the right decisions for their particular needs.
The book is not just aimed at those who shoot pheasants, but includes sections on beating, picking up, game-keeping and shoot management as well as advice on shoot day etiquette, safety, dog-handling and accessories: both those you need and those you are best to avoid. The author paints a vivid picture of the joys of pheasant shooting illustrated with tales of his own experiences, both good and, at times, bad. Wry, humourous and sometimes outspoken, this is a book that will appeal to the experienced shot as well as to the complete novice.
