The Keen Shot's Miscellany is a collection of three hundred entries on the subject of game shooting past and present. Articles range from short snippets containing irresistible information such as the fact that a shotgun should weigh 6 pounds for every ounce of shot it is likely to fire, to one thousand words on the sculptor Sir Francis Chatrey's right and left of woodcock with one barrel, the most talked about shooting event of early Victorian Britain.
You'll find everything you need to do with shooting in this book from BASC advice to tips, trivia, jokes, poems, bad bunnies and even a recipe "For when you tire of plain roast grouse".
