COLONEL GEORGE HANGER'S ADVICE TO ALL SPORTSMEN, FARMERS AND GAMEKEEPERS By Col. George Hanger. First published in London 1814, this is one of the rarest sporting books of its time, with first editions commanding astronomical prices. READ COUNTRY BOOKS have now republished it in an affordable, high quality modern edition using the original text. Colonel Hanger was a celebrated sportsman and soldier, famous for his feats in both vocations. He hunted, shot and saw service, both in England and America. This book provides a wealth of information gleaned over a long and active lifetime. It will appeal greatly to the country lover and sportsman and also prove an amusing social document for students of that era with its historical anecdotes and lively style. The book's two hundred and twenty six pages contain valuable information on: How to Allure and Catch all Vermin. - Rat Catching Secrets. - Managing Horses and Dogs. - Rearing Pheasants. - Fowling Pieces, Rifles and Muskets. - Remarks on Rifle Shooting. - Pointers and Setters. - Preventing Partridge and Pheasant Poachers. - Catching Flocks of Wood Pigeons. - Catching Water Fowl. - Stalking Red Deer. - Training Colts. - Cures for Bullocks and Cows. - How to Shoot by Night, Wildfowl, Peewits, Plover, Wild Geese and Bustards. - Remarks on the Rifle Bench. - Saving a Poisoned Dog. - Several Valuable Family Receipts. - Plans for Training and Disciplining a Corps. Distance Rifle Shooting, etc. This is a fascinating read for any field sports enthusiast or historian and contains information that is still practical and useful today. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and veryexpensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
