Will Garfit RBA is a true countryman who enjoys all forms of game shooting and has recently had the accolade of being chosen as one of the '100 Best Shots Ever' in The Field (July 2009). For the past fifteen years he has been writing for The Shooting Gazette and Will's Shooting Ways is a compilation of those articles. His enthusiasm is infectious and he shares the excitement of the day. Topics covered include game shooting; hints and tips on pigeon shooting; conservation; advice on shoot management; shooting technique and style as well as other subjects relating to the countryside. His delicate sepia illustrations, pen drawings and oil paintings have earned him an international following and this book is fully illustrated with examples of his work.
Will Garfit acquired a seventy acre area of abandoned gravel workings and then developed it over forty years as a sport and conservation project. The project won the Laurent Perrier Award (now the Purdey Award) and inspired Will's Shoot and Will's Shoot Revisited. Will is a professional artist and has illustrated over thirty country sports books.

"Ranging from pigeon shooting, through the management of his own small shoot, to the wider state of the countryside, Will's writing is imbued with his innate charm and humour." Shooting Times
"Delightfully delicate illustrations adorn the pages, illuminating charming tales that echo with country warmth and gentle wit. Reading it is a special treat, like having a crumpet in front of the fire with a favourite uncle. With the artist's sensibility and perception, this book is a glimpse at country life to be cherished and enjoyed at leisure." The Field
"...Garfit is also an artist with an MA from the Royal Academy Schools (he has just had a 15-year retrospective at the Tryon Gallery in London).
With illustrations for over 30 country sports books under his belt, Garfit is also a crack shot (in the 100 best ever, said July's The Field) and a rattling good writer." Sporting Shooter
"A very nicely put together collection... very entertaining. Will is a great shot and true sportsman, who has a very perceptive eye and mind. Moreover in addition to capturing it all in words, he is of course a big talent with a paintbrush, and his book is beautifully illustrated." Fieldsports
