This guide is designed for the expert and beginner alike; it defines the sport in its true historical context, from the great and fashionable estates of the Edwardian era, to the modern era of syndicates, let days and company shoots. It should enable participants to improve their practical skills and develop a greater understanding of the sport. "Crawford Little" takes the reader through the necessary preliminaries of safety and etiquette, then to the techniques of successful pheasant shooting, both driven and rough. Not only does he describe how to shoot, or to choose a gun and gun-fit, he also covers the skill of advanced shooting techniques and the psychology of successful sportsmanship. The manner in which financial pressures have influenced changes in the structure of the sport, and the new trends and alternatives open to those who wish to participate are discussed. Crawford Little bases his analysis and advice on his own wide experience of the pheasant shooting scene, in which he is acknowledged as one of the most talented young experts.
