"With the diminution of myxomatosis and the resultant increase in rabbits has come a natural enthusiasm for ferreting. But a new generation of sportsmen have come on the rural scene, with little or no knowledge of this subtle sport. Many have had to start from scratch, acquiring wisdom the hard and costly way. In this new book Fred Taylor deals with every conceivable aspect of practical ferreting. His down-to-earth (literally!) style and the swift recognition that here is a man who is talking fro years of practical experience will, I believe, ensure that the Shooting Times Guide to Ferreting becomes a sought-after sporting classic."

Chapters include:- An introduction to the ferret; The ferreting A.B.C.; Breeding and general care; Handling ferrets; The 'tools of the trade'; Clothes for ferreting; Operations; Dealing with odd situations; Shooting over ferrets; Ferret ailments.
