Master Class! Congratulations. After much work and a lot of winning in the lower classes of the NSCA competition world, you finally won the last punch you needed to move to Master Class! A great feeling and a great accomplishment! You always knew you were this good! The next sporting clays competition arrives, and you register as MASTER! A proud moment! You go out to the competition course and shoot your game. You have a solid day and put up a solid score, not your best performance but a good score. You wait around after the competition for the final results to be posted. The scores come out and you begin looking for your name at the top of Master Class, because hey, that is where your name has been for months! The top of the class! You look at the top of Master Class and don’t see your name. You tell yourself, “That’s Ok. Can’t expect to win the first time in Master Class.” You begin scrolling down the list of names in Master Class expecting to see your name at any moment. You keep scrolling. A quarter of the way down now, and your name still hasn’t shown up. You keep scrolling. Halfway down now and geez, there are a lot of names here. You keep scrolling. Getting close to the bottom now. You keep scrolling and there you are, about three quarters of the way down. You finish about fifty out of sixty-five. You are shocked. This can’t be right. You check your score. Yes, that is the correct score and then, you start scanning the scores above you. You sigh in disappointment. Six competitions later, your scores bottom out. You are nearly last in Master Class. It was only a few competitions ago that you were good and winning your class. The sport was fun! Now in Master Class, you can’t even finish in the top half of the class. You get frustrated. You begin thinking about quitting the sport. You are lost at what to do. So many new Master Class competitors have found themselves in this very scenario. You just made Master Class and want so much to continue winning like you did in the lower classes, but Master Class is different than the other classes. The Professionals who compete for the National Championship every year are in Master Class. The Regional and State “Big Fish” who compete and win the Regional and State Championships every year are in Master Class. The former “Big Fish” who used to win all the time are in Master Class. All of these competitors have competed for over a decade. You realize if you are going to compete and win in Master Class, you need to get better. You realize you need to expand your game and improve your skills. You need a skill set. This book is written to help you create a skill set that will make you competitive in Master Class and the lower classes as well. The material in Skill Sets: Practicing for Sporting Clays will discuss the three major skill sets you need to compete and win in sporting clays. It will discuss the technical game, the mental game and the most important and least discussed skill set…execution. I have been competing in sporting clays over fifteen years and have experienced the highs and lows in the sport. The highs include a couple tours on the PSCA circuit, multiple State Championships, a 100 straight in competition and an All American Team to my credits. I have seen the lows as well finishing third from the bottom of Master Class. I have made many mistakes on my climb up the sporting clays mountain. I address many of my mistakes in this book to help you avoid them. This book was written from my vast experience to help you build a skill set to improve your game. Then once you have created this skill set, the book discusses how to practice these skill sets and make it better. Because once you have a skill set, you have to learn how to apply it. If you take the three fundamental skill sets in this book and apply it to your game, you will see your scores improve and the fun return to the sport you love and have worked so hard to master.

SHOOTING AND SPORT IN ENGLAND: PAST AND PRESENT. By Colonel E.C.C. Hartopp. This entertaining but little known book was first published in London in 1894 as "Sport in England." It is a fascinating historical record of the shooting field in late 19th century England. Read Country Books has now re-published it in its entirety, as part of their "History of Shooting" series, using the original text and retaining the many illustrations. The Eton educated author was a "man of means," but was equally at home when working his ferrets, assisting a keeper with his many tasks, or taking numerous high birds on exclusive sporting estates. Thirty concise chapters illustrate the author's experiences of the above, and also include many jottings and valuable hints on related subjects: The Young English Sportsman. - Poaching of Paired Birds. - The Egg Season and its Enemies. - Landlord and Tenant Rights. - Crop Cutting. - Grouse, Partridge and "Longtails," Past and Present. - Covert Shooting. - Good Shots and Others. - Funny Facts in Sport. - Ferrets and their Management. - Trapping, Netting, and Snaring. - Poaching, and How it is Done. - Small Days and Pot Hunting. - Turning Down Live Bought Pheasants. - How and Where Rabbit Farming Can Pay. - The Gamekeeper and his Duties. - Guns and Gunmakers. - The Quarry. - Vermin. - Recipes for Diseases in Dogs. - Retrievers of the Present Day. Etc. This book will prove of immense interest to all who derive their pleasure and/or profit from the field sports of today's England. The book is a quality production in a soft, pictorial cover format. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are reprinting these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions. These editions are republished using the original text and artwork.Keywords: 19th Century England Sport England Landlord And Tenant Rights Landlord And Tenant Birds Shooting Sport Concise Chapters Country Books Man Of Means Eton Poaching Ferrets Grouse Partridge Covert Sportsman Colonel Enemies

From the creator/editor of Who Shot Rock & Roll ("I loved this book" --Dwight Garner, The New York Times. "Whatever Gail Buckland writes, I want to read"), a book that brings together the work of 165 extraordinary photographers, most of their images heralded, most of their names unknown; photographs that capture the essence of athletes' mastery of mind/body/soul against the odds, doing the impossible, seeming to defy the laws of gravity, the laws of physics, and showing what human will, discipline, drive, and desire look like when suspended in time. The first book to show the range, cultural importance, and aesthetics of sports photography, much of it legendary, all of it powerful. Here, in more than 280 spectacular images--more than 130 in full color--are great action photographs; portraits of athletes, famous and unknown; athletes off the field and behind the scenes; athletes practicing, working out, the daily relentless effort of training and achieving physical perfection. Buckland writes that sports photographers have always been central to the technical advancement of photography, that they have designed longer lenses, faster shutters, motor drives, underwater casings, and remote controls, allowing us to see what we could never see--and hold on to--with the naked eye. Here are photographs by such masters as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Danny Lyon, Walker Evans, Annie Leibovitz, and 160 more, names not necessarily known to the public but whose photographic work is considered iconic . . . Here are photographs of Willie Mays . . . Carl Lewis . . . Ian Botham . . . Kobe Bryant . . . Magic Johnson . . . Muhammad Ali . . . Serena Williams . . . Bobby Orr . . . Stirling Moss . . . Jesse Owens . . . Mark Spitz . . . Roger Federer . . . Jackie Robinson. Here is the work of the great sports photographers Neil Leifer, Walter Iooss Jr., Bob Martin, Al Bello, Robert Riger, and Heinz Kleutmeier of Sports Illustrated, who was the first to put a camera at the bottom of an Olympic swimming pool and photograph swimmers from below . . . Here are pictures by Charles Hoff, the New York Daily News photographer of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, whose images of the 1936 Berlin Olympics still inspire shock and awe . . . and those of Ernst Haas, whose innovative color pictures of bullfighting of the 1950s remain poetic evocations of a bloody sport . . . To make the selections for Who Shot Sports, Buckland, a former curator of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain and Benjamin Menschel Distinguished Visiting Professor at Cooper Union, has drawn upon the work of more than fifty archives, from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, to Sports Illustrated, Condé Nast, Getty Images, the National Baseball Hall of Fame, L'Équipe, The New York Times, and the archives of the International Olympic Committee in Lausanne. Here are classic and unknown sports images that capture the uncapturable, that allow us to experience "kinetic beauty," and that give us the essence and meaning--the transcendent power--of sports.

Consumptive forms of wildlife tourism (hunting, shooting and fishing) have become a topic of interest - both to the tourism industry, in terms of destinations seeking to establish or grow this sector, and to other stakeholders such as environmental organisations, animal-rights groups, and the general public. Hunting tourism, in particular, has come under fire with accusations that it is contributing to the demise of some species. Practices such as "canned hunting" (within fenced safari parks) or the use of hounds are described as unethical, and fishing tourism too has attracted recent negative publicity as it is said to be cruel. At the same time, however, many peripheral and indigenous communities around the world are strategising how to capitalise on consumptive forms of wildlife tourism. This book addresses a range of contentious issues facing the consumptive wildlife tourism sector across a number of destinations in Europe, North America, Africa, India, Arabia and Oceania. Practices such as baited bear hunting, trophy hunting of threatened species, and hunting for conservation are debated, along with the impact of this type of tourism on indigenous communities and on wider societies. Research on all aspects of "consumptive wildlife tourism" is included, which for the purposes of the book is defined to include all tourism that involves the intended killing of wildlife for sport purposes, and may include the harvest of wildlife products. This includes, among others, recreational hunting, big-game hunting and safari operations, traditional/indigenous hunting, game-bird shooting, hunting with hounds, freshwater angling and saltwater game fishing etc. This is the first book to specifically address tourist aspects of consumption of wildlife. It will appeal to tourism and recreation academics and students, tourism industry operators, community tourism planners and wildlife managers.
