Fowler in the Wild is a book published in 1987 in the U.K. by Eric Begbie, one of Britain's leading exponents of traditional waterfowl hunting linked to practical wildfowl conservation. The book is now out of print and the author has published it on the Internet so that a new generation of wildfowlers can enjoy the tales and learn from the instructional chapters. The author is happy to consider commissions to write new material for publication in the U.K. or overseas on the subjects of wildfowling, game shooting, wildlife conservation, gundogs and general countryside topics.
