There is guidance on the choice of guns, ammunition, clothing and equipment. Fully illustrated with the author's photographs, this book will appeal t only to those fortunate eugh to shoot grouse but also to moorland keepers, beaters and pickers-up and to anyone who loves those wide open hills and moors where the wild red grouse may still be found.
