The Orvis Guide to Upland HuntingBook - 2017
"An extensively illustrated and definitive resource that explains all there is to know about upland hunting. The Orvis Guide to Upland Hunting provides an in-depth primer for new or aspiring hunters, offering a solid understanding of upland hunting from A to Z. With stunning images by acclaimed outdoor photographer Brian Grossenbacher, this book is far more than an instructional piece: it will give the pursuit of upland game birds flesh, emotion, and identity. The book offers instruction on the finer points of selecting and fitting of a shotgun, specialized field gear, and the keys to proper wing-shooting technique--from stance to gun swing--as well as describing the bird species and habitats that define North American upland hunting. It then delves into scenarios that involve entering the field, hunting with a guide and dogs, and dispatching and processing harvested game. From gun safety and ownership to sustainable, ethical hunting practices, this book teaches and inspires the complete hunter through well-written and informative text and the best photography from the field."--Publisher website.
