1 Review
Pheasant Hunter's Harvest is a celebration of pheasants, pheasant dogs, and pheasant hunting. It is a remarkably human and textured evocation of the beauty, drama, humor, and excitement of the author's avowed 'grand passion.' Grooms brings to his stories of days afield an infectious enthusiasm for the quarry and for the sport. He captures the full experience of pheasant hunting: the complex strategizing, the joys of working in partnership with a dog, the warmth of hunting friendships polished by years of time shared afield, the occasional moments of pain, the drama, the triumphs and the overall wonder of the sport. (61/4 X 91/4, 196 pages, illustrations)
