THE AMATEUR POACHER

BY

RICHARD JEFFERIES




PREFACE


The following pages are arranged somewhat in the order of time,
beginning with the first gun, and attempts at shooting. Then come the
fields, the first hills, and woods explored, often without a gun, or any
thought of destruction: and next the poachers, and other odd characters
observed at their work. Perhaps the idea of shooting with a matchlock,
or wheel-lock, might, if put in practice, at least afford some little
novelty.

R.J.
