    Overall this book is informative for new shooters and I have found it helpful for experienced shooters. The book provides great information on field shooting fundamentals which are many times overlooked. I am looking forward to the next upland season!

    I'm new to the sport and have been receiving a lot of input from many people on how to shoot. The book covers all that input that I have received plus more and lays it out in easy to understand/follow language. I'm glad I bought the book.

    Good Foundational Book on Shotgun Shooting - 1/14/2013
    By: from Narragansett, RI

    I am a "self-taught" skeet shooter / pheasant hunter with 30 years of experience. This book gave me great insight into so much of what I was missing as a shooter. It pointed out things I did not even know I was doing incorrectly. I recommend it strongly for both the novice and experienced shooter.

    An excellent primer to wingshooting - 8/31/2011

    This book quickly covers the basis of becoming a proper shooting gentleman or lady. This book picks up where a simple pump shotgun and rudimentary hunting skills end. Throughout the chapters, this treatise of some 100 pages or so explains gun types, selection, gun fitting, addressing the targets, natural method of shooting (modified Churchill method) and all the other considerations you would need to consider to become a decent shooter. There are better (and by better I mean more scholarly and longer) books out there but this is the one from which you start your journey. I highly suggest getting this book at the same time you buy your first double barrel shotgun.

    Wingshooters Handbook - 2/26/2011

    I just purchased this for my sweetheart. A friend loaned me a copy several years ago, and the techniques were very well explained, and did improve my shotgun success when shooting clays. My guy is successful as an upland game bird hunter, but there are days when he just can't seem to make the shot. I knew the tips, techniques, concepts and illustrations in this book were easy to understand - - after reading he gave it two thumbs up.
