THE OLD WAYS OF THE POACHER

And The Gamekeeper's Tips to Out Wit Him
Volume 1

One cannot help to admire the Poacher of old who, like the Romany Gypsy, poached for necessity to put food in the pot to feed his family.

He was an expert with net, snare, catapult and ferret, and his lurcher was a pot filler.

He was a loner who excelled in the art of woodcraft, and he knew the habits of all the game he pursued by day or night.

Above all, he was my (The Warrener's) 'Dad' - a true poacher and countryman.
