Format: Hardcover
The book overall is very good. Simple to read and follow. The book covers nearly every aspect of hunting with an air rifle, including detailed information on the equipment to use, what and where to hunt, and the general laws governing the sport. The books only down fall is the fact that it feels sightly dated, with little mention of pre-charged pneumtaic rifles, bipods and night vision equipment. This book is still a must for all keen air rifle hunters.
Highly recommended.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 Jun. 2008
Format: Hardcover
If you are plagued with vermin of one sort or another and many country dwellers are, or possibly just have your local farmer's permission to shoot across his land, then an air rifle is a cheap and quiet way to rid yourself of unwanted intruders. Air rifles can be used in reasonably confined spaces, barns, close to building etc. without running the risk of doing any permanent damage. This book is a simple yet comprehensive guide on the subject of hunting and gives you all the information required to use a gun safely, whether it be an air weapon or something a little more powerful. The safety rules for using firearms hold good whatever form of weapon is used.

There is no doubt about it, the book is somewhat dated, being published 20 years ago and gives little or no information on the more modern equipment available to the enthusiast but that is not really what the book is about. There are plenty of other more up to date books that catalogue the various models of firearms. What this book does and does well is tell the reader how to hunt with a rifle and how to do it safely, both for your own protection and that of others and it does this very well. It also gives an insight into what you can and cannot shoot, and the laws that govern the sport. However because of the age of the book an update may be in order, possibly from the internet, as the rules are constantly being changed. Also a point to remember is that all land even if it looks like a derelict plot belongs to somebody and permission must be obtained to shoot on it.

As I said this book does give information on the equipment needed but much of this has been superseded by modern and more advanced and more sophisticated gear, particularly in the realm of night vision sights, powerful lamps for night use etc. Age is not always detrimental, far from it and this book is an informative guide for anyone interested in the hunting side of the sport.

The Author John Darling was a much respected writer and photographer in the fields of air rifle hunting and fishing and had contributed to Air rifle Magazines for many years and I used to look forward to reading his articles each month. I have taken up shooting again after a long break and therefore wanted to get advice from the best air gun hunter. The book is a bit dated with respect to the most modern equipment however I have been using a BSA Superstar for years and intend to continue using it so this did not concern me, anyway its the hunting techniques I want to read about. All the advice given is sound and written from years of experience.
If you are into sea fishing I would also recommend "Bass fishing on shore and sea" and "Shore fishing" by John Darling.

The author provides very detailed explanation on airgun hunting with a springer airgun. The book has plenty of nice b&B pictures. This is almost a vintage book and the author is a well established pioneer in this discipline. The book is now sold at a very good and competitive price.

Written by one of the true greats of our sport this is a must have. It covers all aspects of hunting with the overriding lesson of compassion for quarry. Dated in some areas such as gun choice or camo but it is an old book.
