I hear Frain is a very talented artist also..... http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... .


I see my thoughts have been vindicated by the very brief review afforded Mr Frains latest offering :) (via this weeks Shooting Times), that being, "Rabbiting with Dog, Gun, Hawk, Ferret, Hound, Lawnmower, Strimmer, Smoker, Toaster et al". And I quote; "It's a little utilitarian" :icon_eek: and "a bit text book" :icon_eek: and it's "replete with poorly focused black and white photographs" :no: . I rest my case. Buy it at your peril!

I bought it as I saw it cheap on Amazon but after reading a few chapters, I have sent it back. It is frankly, pretty poor in my humble opinion. :yes:

The only redeeming feature of the book is the utterly hilarious drawings that are in there, drawn by SF himself. They are so terrible that I am sure they are included as an ironic joke. No-one in all seriousness can publish those without having their tongue firmly in their cheek.....

I particularly like the action drawing of a rabbit bolting with a ferret clamped on the back like a jockey! It is one of the funniest things I have seen in ages! :11: :11:
The other classic sketch shows a hawk closing in on a coney and it honestly looks like the work of a 8 year old.
Actually that is a little unfair on most kids, it in fact looks like the work of an 8 year old who is devoid of any artistic talent whatsoever.... and has been blindfolded for the duration of an art class. :blink:

Don't buy it, unless you want a really good laugh at the drawings.. :11:


In terms of what you should buy, then I would recommend Jackie Drakeford for lurchers and David Harcombe for terriers.

And as stated above, EDRD.....
