Sinopsis: 50 years of bird hunting in New England. This is a compelling account of the author's many adventures and misadventures while hunting for grouse, woodcock, pheasants, and a variety of duck species in all kinds of weather and terrain throughout New England. The book is steeped in the history and lore of hunting in this region, and reveals the type of camaraderies that are so important to those who hunt. Starting with a riveting explanation as to why he loves to hunt, Tapply then takes the reader on a literary hunting trip through his life - from hunting with his grandfather, father, and family friend Burton Spiller (the father of modern grouse hunting), through favorite fields and coverts, to revered guns, and longtime hunting companions. Along the way, Tapply hunts a variety of birds, in many situations, with many people. His profound love of the land is apparent throughout the book, evidenced by his constant bemoaning of developments that inevitably chew up his favorite woodcock coverts or grouse covers. This is a must-have addition to any bird hunter's library.
From the Back Cover:
Upland Days chronicles a half-century of tromping the New England woods with amiable companions, both two- and four-footed. The author writes about such legendary grouse hunters as his father, H.G. "Tap" Tapply, and his bird-hunting mentor, Burton L. Spiller. The book contains a happy mix of lore, whimsy, nostalgia, wisdom, and romance. It's about the pleasures of the hunt and a lifelong love affair with grouse and woodcock and other game birds.
