Hunting with Air Rifles : The Complete Guide Hardback
Hunting with Air Rifles is a complete guide to the basics of using an air rifle - a gun which is gaining in popularity in the UK. Covering all elements of the sport from the nitty gritty (though not frighteningly technical) workings of the air rifle to how to choose the right gun, using sights, ammunition, accessories, clothing, camouflage, setting up, shooting techniques/stances, the law and acquiring permission to shoot.
Manning deals with quarry recognition and the relationship between the hunter, his/her quarry and the countryside.
Hunting techniques for various species are included from stalking to hide building, decoying, baiting, lamping and use of calls.
Air rifle hunting is one of the most humane ways of sourcing meat - animal welfare and organic standards can't get much higher and food miles are minimal, yet proper game preparation is often neglected.
Here readers will find clear instructions on converting shot quarry into meat for the table along with a series of simple and delicious recipes.
