Book Description

20 Jun 2007
Mike Swan has written a book which is both a practical guide to sport with dog and gun and also a celebration of the simple pleasures of informal shooting. In an age dominated by the organised driven shoot, the author reminds us of the quality and variety of sport which can still be enjoyed by the sportsman and his dog. "Rough Shooting" is a clear and concise guide to all the principal sporting quarry species, to sporting guns and cartridges and to the choice and training of a gundog. Practical hints on shooting tactics are accompanied by helpful guidance on shoot management and habitat improvement for game and wildfowl.

Product Description

Review

Although so much of shooting's focus is upon organised driven-shooting nowadays, Mike Swan celebrates the simple pleasures of informal rough-shooting, where the quality and variety is equally impressive. As head of education at The Game Conservancy Trust, Swan is keen to offer his expert advice to guns and this guide allows him to do just that in a concise and logical manner. He offers practical tips on shooting, management, habitat improvement, what to wear, the equipment needed and much more. Subjects are dealt with in individual chapters so the reader can navigate the book easily, allowing him to get straight to the relevant information before picking up his gun and putting what he has read into practice. --The Field

This is a new third Edition of an old favourite, and its continuing popularity is well deserved. Mike's huge experience means that his advice is absolutely sound and based on personal knowledge, and although the book is aimed at those who are relatively new to the sport, there is a lot that will be valuable to the more experienced Guns. Mike writes clearly and concisely, managing to say a great deal in a short space; the result is a book which is a pleasure to read, despite being crammed with information and makes a fine introduction to our sport. --BASC Shooting and Conservation

Drawing on many decades of advice from right around the shooting world the beautifully illustrated pages really bring the sport to life, Perfect for novices looking to get into the sport and for older guns looking to brush up. The author is something of a living legend having worked for the GCT in an advisory role for many years. And he brings all his knowledge to this book. --Shooting Gazette

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and informative 30 April 2010
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book to accompany the "B.A.S.C. Guide to Shooting Game" so I had one book focussed on technique and another, this one, to cover all aspects of rough shooting. I am finding this book very useful. It is easy and interesting to read and full of information. There is some background information on safety, law and equipment, etc, but the bulk of the book is about how to rough shoot various species. The balance is exactly right and I am finding this is the only book I need on the subject.
