Designed for newcomers to sporting shotgun shooting, this Handbook of Shooting has much to offer more experienced shots, too. It covers shotgun safety, the basic rules of gun handling in the field, while travelling and at home; it examines the parts of the shotgun and their respective functions in some detail, as well as cartridges, and discusses the effective ranges of both in relation to particular quarry; it outlines the law as it relates to shooting, possession of guns, the game seasons, the schedules of protected birds, landownership and sporting rights; it discusses specific aspects of the sport - roughshooting, game shooting and wildfowling. It also includes chapters on behaviour in the field, the role of gundogs, the part played by gamekeepers in habitat and game management; it has a comprehensive section on quarry species and their identification illustrated in full colour.
