Hunting Upland Gamebirds
By Steve Smith

What the wingshooter needs to know about the birds, the guns, and the new clay games.

Here are the facts and advice you need on choosing the right gun, whether you remake an old classic or modify your favourite piece, on actions and gauges, fit, weight, balance, and on analysing your shooting and your firearm in order to adapt your gun to you and the particular shooting situation. Here too are outlined the basic techniques of wingshooting, including snapshooting, modified snapshooting, swing-through, sustained lead, and the English Churchill method.

Take your improved knowledge of guns and techniques to the field while Smith shows you how to analyse the shooting for doves, ruffed grouse, woodcock, pheasant, quail, Hungarian partridge, sage hen, prairie chicken, and chukar. You'll look at the situations and shots you're likely to face and choose a gun, load, choke, fit, balance, weight, gauge, and technique that will make you a more proficient and successful shooter.

Now that you know all about what guns and techniques to use on your favourite upland species, learn about having a custom gun built or an old favourite converted. Listen to Steve Smith discuss stock fitting, custom choking, ribs, sleeving, and shot hardness.
