A best selling story of how Will Garfit acquired and developed, over twenty years, 70 acres of disused gravel pits in Cambridgeshire, into an award winning shoot, fisheries and wildlife reserve. A real hands-on project and Will’s enthusiasm runs through the book explaining how each facet of the project was achieved. There are stories of the many friends who have helped. It is well illustrated by photographs and his own delightful pen and ink line drawings. This book has become something of a textbook for those with a similar vision and inspiration to develop a small shoot and wildlife area themselves. Although this book is superseded by “Will’s Shoot Revisited” it has become a collectors’ item.
