Clay and Game Shooting Lessons and Coaching 

A Fathers’ Advice

If a sportsman true you’d be listen carefully to me. . .

Never, never let your gun pointed be at anyone.
 That it may unloaded be
 matters not the least to me.

When a hedge or fence you cross
 though of time it cause a loss 
from your gun the cartridge take 
for the greater safety’s sake.

If twixt you and neighboring gun 
bird shall fly or beast may run 
let this maxim ere be thine 
“follow not across the line."

Stops and beaters oft unseen 
lurk behind some leafy screen.
 Calm and steady always be 
“never shoot where you can’t see."

You may kill or you may miss 
but at all times think this: 
“all the pheasants ever bred 
won’t repay for one man dead.”
