Description & Details


Have I remembered everything?; What shall I wear"; Who am I likely to be shooting alongside?; Will the dog behave?; Will the birds be there? These are all questions that might keep the Gun, the picker-up, the keeper and anyone else connected with a day's game shooting awake the night before a much anticipated day. Why did I say that?; Why did I do that?; Why did my dog do that?; Why didn't I think about the weather?; What was I thinking? are all questions one might ask oneself the evening after!Fortunately, you are not alone in your nightmares! If you've ever encountered a particular incident or experience on the shooting field, whether it be a formal day, or as a rough shoot with a couple of friends, it's a fairly safe best that others will have too! The Imperfect Shot illustrates in words and cartoons, light-hearted errors and ill-judgement of those who have experienced minor faux pas and misdemeanours on the shooting field - and also glorifies those who have got the better of a particular situation! There are, among its pages, real pearls of wisdom; there is though, much advice written somewhat 'tongue-in-cheek'. All immediately bring a mental picture to mind.A mental picture is not, however, required. The illustrations, brought to life by renowned country and field sports artist, Oliver Preston - himself a shooting man of no ill-repute - has negated the need for the cry which otherwise might go out: Oh; if only I had a camera! As if the situation was not clear enough, Oliver adds more. Some tales might, of course be apocryphal - and I'll leave it for the reader to decide which they might be!
