Written by John Cowan
John Cowan is headkeeper on a large Scottish estate, and has worked as a gamekeeper all his life. In this new book, he passes on everything he knows about the profession he loves.
The book is crammed with fascinating, practical advice – but it is also a very entertaining read for anyone in the day to day challenges and joys of running a busy sporting estate.
It can be read for its countless tips and gamekeeping wisdom, or simply for pleasure, for the unique insight into the hardworking but rewarding life of the modern gamekeeper.
With informative drawings of traps and snares by Roger Penwill and classic wildlife illustrations from C.F Tunnicliffe.
