An Old Book

An old book ( 1962) has lead me to an even older one . I'd love to have a look at it but really can't justify the cost. Its called 'How to trap and snare' by William Carnegie AKA Moorman.

If you have a look at this link you'll see what I mean by the cost.

Given the codes of practice on snaring issued by BASC the techniques are probably different now. - The one for foxes seems to be designed not to catch them !

Bodger if it is published 1910 may be available as a download as it should be out of copyright.

try google books - some are fully available as a PDF.

I'll try that, what do I have to do exactly ? I'm a technoidiot.

If Google thinks you're in the USA, you can download the book. You need to use a proxy to make Google think you're in the USA. Here's a list of some free proxies:

Not all of them will allow you to download.

I brought this book about a year ago from Amozon its a good read.

If you want another good read try this one Countryman's cooking by W.M.W. Fowler, not wnat you would call PC, but a good read never the less.

Thats a good price.
I swear by ABE books and here's the cheapest that they could offer.
