Gundog Training
Gundog Training
by Keith Erlandson
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Should be called: 'Mostly anecdotes about gundog training, breeding and other stuff I like about gundogs', 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gundog Training (Hardcover)
A good book to have alongside other books and there is some good advice about training your gundog, but there's also a whole lot of other (not so useful) stuff too. It could certainly do with a glossary of some kind as the terminology is a bit colloquial. The instruction seems a little disordered and could do with some step by step structuring.The photos are all pretty much irrelevant to the subject of gundog training and there are none of gundog training or training equipment or gundogs being trained. The book comes across as being about the author and his experience, prowess, achievements and triumphs, rather than about the reader and his/her dog training issues.

As to be expected of F. Rose, this is superb! Clearly set out, easy to use and wonderful illustrations. A must for grassland ecologists.

2.0 out of 5 stars Problems, problems, problems., 28 July 2013

Oh dear!
1. The user manual is very poor.
2. The cycling between screens is very confusing due to lack of titles.
3. Insert? Insert to where and why. NOT covered in the user manual supplied or on-line.
4. Select button often has no effect. I have to cycle to another option, then back and re-select.
5. Geocache downloads from sites other than the Open Cache sites do not save to the unit (despite all updates being current).

I will be returning this item.

...but only if you're a total nerdface. You might do better to seek online help (LAERD) than try to plough your way through this.

Professional Clapper Board
Professional Clapper Board
Offered by Otherland
Price: £10.21

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality., 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Professional Clapper Board (Toy)
The item was not as described and differed from the picture. There was only one hinge fixing (not 3 as pictured) and as a consequence the thing had come apart in transit. I repaired it at my own expense and inconvenience. Also, the portion marked for details of SOUND is restricted to a half size of that shown. There is no way this could be described as 'Professional'. A cheaply made item of hardboard.

If you have to understand and perhaps write about aspects of ecosystem management, this book will be of immense help.

Quote: If every man were made to draw his wife, you might have a few divorces come about, but that husband would start to look more intensely at his wife and he would know much more about her. He might make a very bad drawing. but that wouldn't be the point.

Lots of clear, crisp photographs. This should certainly help with identifying any but the most difficult birds to be found in Britain.
