KIRKUS REVIEW

A manual for a tricky, exciting and demanding sport provides plenty of dope for the fraternity and is continually emphasizing manners, safety and sportsmanship -- for the good of the birds as well as the gunners. Chapters are devoted to: types of duck, puddlers and divers, and the various species within the divisions-and geese are not omitted; choosing the right shotgun and loads and their proper care; descriptions, and the use of, blinds, decoys and calls, and boats; the worth of dogs and the kind of retriever to choose; shooting, jump, pass and wing, and kinds of shots and how to make them; outfitting for physical comfort from the skin out; how to clean and cook the birds. There is a list of regulations and state offices where necessary information is available. A natural for this market, especially for the novices, while the more advanced and expert will appreciate its scope.
