Outlaw Gunner Book
The Outlaw Gunner
The Outlaw Gunner is the colorful story of market gunning in both its legal and illegal phases, particularly as it was practiced in the great Chesapeake Bay, the Outer Banks and the tidewater regions of Delaware, Maryland, Virginal and North Carolina.
This is a fascinating account of a period and of practices long gone…the tale of the market gunners, guides, and outlaws who were engaged in a unique occupation, and of the federal game wardens and their cat-an-mouse pursuit to tame their livelihood. From them comes the most authoritative and comprehensive study of the art of wildfowling ever written.
In more than one hundred fifty of the most unusual and rare photographs from the author’s collection, men with their guns, boats and traps are shown in action. Throughout the unspoken “good ole days” feeling, and the nostalgia, runs a strong between-the-lines plea for conservation in our time. The appeal, placed in this setting, is hard to ignore. Nothing like The Outlaw Gunner has ever been produced. It's a book the hunters and conservationists alike should read and enjoy in the battle for conservation.
In this second edition printing of Dr. Harry M. Walsh’s landmark book, the author’s son, Joe Walsh, has included 50 pages from the yet to be published, My River. written by Dr. Walsh.
