Waterfowling is the most arduous and most romantic of all hunting sports, taking the dedicated fowler out on to windswept estuaries and frozen marshes long before dawn on wild winter mornings. With only a faithful retriever for company, the lone wildfowler experiences a communion with nature that is well nigh impossible in any other setting. At the end of the flight he measures his success not by the size of his bag but by the closeness of his encounter with the wild geese and ducks.In this beautifully written book, Eric Begbie captures the essence of the sport in a selection of personal wildfowling adventures spanning four decades. This publication is adapted from "Fowler in the Wild" by Eric Begbie and highlights the memories of a longshore gunner over almost five decades
