Woodcock Fieldcraft and Quarry by Professor Colin Trotman
This book was published in the UK and mainly focuses on the Eurasian woodcock, a close relative to the American woodcock. Any hunter of woodcock in North America should find this to be an interesting read. It is a complete roughshooter's guide to a responsible approach to woodcock shooting. The author shares his opinions on the best types of gun, cartridges, gear for the sport and of course, the dogs. This beautifully illustrated book with stunning photographs is not just about shooting woodcock, it also takes a comprehensive look at the woodcock from population numbers to migration and the effects of climate change. The book ends with a review of the future of woodcock hunting, including protecting the species and the sport.
