Details

With wide appeal to anyone involved in shooting, this fascinating, fun and informative book covers the reality and myths connected to shooting and the shooting day. Brilliantly illustrated throughout by famed cartoonist Bryn Parry, this book is perfect for all country sports enthusiasts and reveals the superstitions of game Shots, extraordinary experiences in the field and exposes both the fallacies and truths behind many commonly-held beliefs. Can, for instance, a grouse fly faster than a partridge? Does a pheasant’s hearing become more astute as the shooting season progresses? Why was Napoleon once chased by Rabbits?

There’s no doubt that this, at times, somewhat quirky tome will be of widespread interest to all who love being out in the shooting field at no matter what level. Well researched, and with outstanding tongue-in-cheek illustrations, Hot Barrels! is sure to inform, amuse, entertain and educate.
