'If you fancy booking a trip to the moors this August, but don't know where to begin. you will find David Hudson's tenth foray into shooting literature a godsend. The world of grouse shooting has an aura of exclusivity that often deters gameshooters who are comfortably familiar with more widely available low-ground shooting. A day at grouse for the majority may seem like an impossible dream, but in his latest book David Hudson explains clearly what it is that makes a trip to the moors justifiably more expensive for a paying Gun, but also potentially a tremendous memorable occasion. Conversationally forthright, the text presents everything you could wish to know, from the development of grouse shooting, moorland management and natural history through to choice of gun and the correct way to walk across a moor. If you want to know more about the pinnacle of the UK's gameshooting, this book is for you.' Shooting Times
