This scarce volume was first published in London 1904, and is considered one of the foremost books on wildfowling and game shooting of its time. The author was an experienced wildfowler and game shot and an acknowledged expert on game guns, big bore guns and their associated ammunition and loads, to which subject he has devoted several detailed chapters. The book's 350 pages contain 16 comprehensive chapters on : - Game Guns. - Wild-Fowl Guns. - Gun Testing. - Target Results. - Shotgun Patterns. - Ammunition. - Powder Caps and Cartridge Cases. - Wadding and Shot. - Gundogs. - Sportsman's Quarry. - Great Bustard, Capercaillie, Black Grouse, Red Grouse, Ptarmigan, Pheasant, Partridge, Quail, Landrail, Woodcock, Great Snipe, Common Snipe, Jack Snipe. - Hare, Rabbit, Wild Pigeons and Rooks. - Wild-Fowl, Swans, Geese, Ducks, Plover and Shore Birds. - Game Shooting. - Wildfowling with Gun and Punt. - Vermin.
