Product Description & Reviews

This book is unique in the history of sporting literature: Now in its 3rd Edition, it is still the first and only one ever to embark on a comprehensive survey of the gameshooting scene, both as it was and as it stands today. In this new and revised edition the fascinating story is brought right up to date. Many of the shoots chosen are owned by the rich and famous, and Brian Martin here provides a rare insight into their social lives; providing fascinating comment on their own estates and on shooting generally.Before detailing the history and present sport of each estate, region by region, the author sets the scene by outlining the history of gameshooting in Britain: the changing attitude of society; how economics have played an increasingly important part; how the popular press has perpetuated an often inaccurate image, how technical developments have shaped both gunmaking and game rearing; and much more. The inter-relationship between shooting and conservation, and the important contribution of the general welfare of our flora and fauna by the overwhelming majority of shoot proprieters, are given special attention.This superb volume has become the established celebration of the gameshooting world today.
