1950 1st edition. 8vo (147 x 218mm). Pp222 + 2pp ads. B/w photographs. Green cloth, spine titled in gilt.

Noel Sedgwick was the editor of the Shooting Times for many years. In this volume he gives much good advice about wildfowling and rough shooting, with many anecdotes of his own experiences. The era saw position of the wildfowler and his quarry deteriorate, in part because of the war itself, and in part because of post-war reconstruction and the 'modernisation' which was just getting under way. Practical and interesting from a number of angles. Chapters include: Estuary shooting - I; Estuary shooting - II; Conservation of wildfowl; Swans and plover; Partridge days; More about partridges; Pheasant nostalgia; Poor man's pheasant; Deer, rabbits and stoats; By the way; Still by the way; Random jottings; Very good material; Return to the estuary.
