We must all have favourite books on hunting,  please bring your favourites to the attention of other members and  possibly do something along the lines of a short book review.

Please feel free to continue to add as many books to this thread as you like as a useful resource to both the experienced and inexperienced.

Air Rifle Hunting By John Darling is a really good read and covers the weapons and skills required (in plain English),  for everyday hunting with an air rifle

I've got that one Robbo.  If you havent got one already, try and get hold of his 'The Gamekeeper' Its one of my all time favourites and is very poignant as it deals with a bygone age.
