The Imperfect Shot

Shooting excuses, gaffes and blunders !

The perfect gift for the imperfect Shot! A very humourous collection of experiences, faux pas and misdemeanours in the shooting field with anecdotes and tales of many light-hearted incidents from throughout the world.

It gives some novel excuses for pickers-up who have failed to find their quarry. In similar vein, during the author’s years as a gamekeeper, it was often necessary to think on the hoof and deliver a plausible reason as to why a particular drive didn’t go exactly as it should. Sometimes the explanations were so outrageous as to be laughable – which often diffused a potentially difficult situation – and on occasion, caused a comment such as, ‘I’ve never heard that one before… how did you think that one up?’ To which the author inevitably replied; ‘The Gamekeeper’s Book of Excuses… page 58’!.

  • A wonderful collection of shooting excuses, gaffes and blunders from the sublime to the ridiculous
  • ‘Tongue-in-cheek’ advice is offered to those who have committed the minor faux pas and misdemeanours on the shooting field
  • Written by renowned author Jeremy Hobson
  • Hilariously illustrated by Oliver Preston
  • The perfect shooting gift
