Description

Originally published in London, 1926. Wildfowling is one of the manliest of all sports with the gun. Wildfowlers are the cream of all shooters because the bag means nothing, but the quality of the sport is everything. No man can hope to ensure constant success in wildfowling unless he is also a naturalist. In this well illustrated book the author gives the reader the benefit of his 25 years experience of sport and nature. Contents Include :Wild Geese Wild Goose Shooting Sailing to Fowl Gunning Pits Wildfowling Guns Powder, Shot and Cartridges British Wild Ducks Duck Shooting Inland and on the Coast Shooting in Canada Wading Birds Shore Shooting Woodcock and Snipe Wildfowling Dogs Bird Migration Wildfowling Quarters. etc Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
