No longer the preserve of the country elite, the growth of commercial shoots and the fact that even the grandest of estates now let out days means that shooting is available to all those who enjoy killing animals with guns. Whether you are an experienced shot who wants to try out a different terrain, a relative newcomer who is as interested in the local pubs and hotels as the shoot itself, or an office manager who wants a Christmas party with a difference, this book has all the information you need. Divided into separate sections for England, Scotland and Wales, the book includes over 170 shoots; covers all types of shooting - partridge, pheasant, grouse, woodcock/snipe, pigeon, wildfowling and stalking; includes a section on simulated shooting; includes a section on walked-up/rough shooting; and features essays by leading experts on the changing face of shooting.
