have fallen to my lot in portions of two hemispheres during a period extending over thirty years.
It has been my habit, when shooting or fishing in Scotland and Ireland, and during my different travelling and hunting expeditions in Norway and in North America, to keep a diary or record of the sport enjoyed, as well as frequently to carry a camera, so I hope I may claim for my narrative that it is strictly veracious, if no more.
At the same time it has been my endeavour to avoid, so far as is consistent with this kind of record, the mere expansion of a shooting and fishing diary, and so the matter is arranged in order of sport rather than chronologically.
While a greater part of the text is new, some portions have already appeared from time to time as articles in the Badminton and Pall Mall magazines, and in the pages of Country Life and the Pall Mall Gazette. To the respective editors of these publications my grateful acknowledgments are due for leave to reproduce these articles, in some cases rewritten and expanded, in their present form.
