The Little Hunting Handbook
Hunt Staff Benefit Society Little Hunting Handbook
"Everything you wanted to know about Hunting but never dared ask"
Many new people are hunting today. They may not have been brought up in a hunting country and it may sound strange for them to hear a person say 'Goodnight' at 9am after a morning of Autumn Hunting. They may wonder why the Master gets so upset when they gallop over a lovely green field that is not actually grass. Or why it is important to thank that scruffy person holding the gate - because he might just turn out to be your host!
Each Hunt may vary slightly but the manners and dress of hunting have evolved over the centuries to be practical and are based on a great deal of common sense. Hunting is about having fun and at the same time respecting the privilege of being allowed to cross our green and pleasant land.
The Little Hunting Handbook has been produced to raise funds for the Hunt Staff Benefit Society. There are photographs on every spread, all kindly donated by some of the best photographers in the hunting world. The foreword is by Jeremy Irons and it is intended to be full of helpful information and to be entertaining at the same time. Contact us for a copy.
