This early works on Wildfowling by C. T. Dalgety is a detailed and informative look at the subject containing many illustrations. "The gun is the most important item of a wildfowler's outfit, and should receive more consideration than it often gets." In addition to the firing pieces, C. T. Dalgety also covers such topics as game bags, rucksacks, clothing, dogs, shooting, and geese.

Originally published 1896. The book comprises a short natural history of British wildfowl and complete and comprehensive directions in shooting wildfowl on the coast and inland with shotgun and punt gun. Over two hundred illustrations. Many of the earliest field sports books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Modern wildfowling by Wildfowler

I would undertake to use a punt as light as a wager - boat with a little care , only
strengthening the nose to take the recoil , and the lower sides for ice . Though I
have been punt - shooting on the coast throughout nearly every sharp frost since

Wildfowling Past Present An Anthology

Wildfowling is the most romantic, exciting and challenging of all the field sports. All wildfowlers have a little poetry in their souls. The majority of fowlers are thoroughgoing individualists. A typical wildfowler is a true hunter, bred and born - a lone wolf pitting his wits and knowledge against the wiles of some of the wariest and fastest birds on earth. Taking all this into account it is no surprise that wildfowling has fascinated a great many well known writers as well as inspiring many lesser known and even amateur writers to write with brilliance and passion about their sport. In this book I have attempted to select a number of gems and rarities of fowling literature from famous writers as well as including notes, articles and snippets from less well known, but nevertheless, enthusiastic scribes. This anthology will, I hope, help preserve some of the more obscure wildfowling tales for gunners of the future. Several of the post war wildfowling stories include those of writers who contributed to now defunct sporting periodicals of that era. Their stories I consider masterpieces of the genre and have been included for the benefit of future generations. In some cases it has been impossible to communicate with them or their relatives, who may contact the publishers if they so wish.
