                                                               stumbled upon a gathering of

                        were in a brushy flat paralleling a north-Michigan trout stream. We walked
                        half a mile and had over a hundred birds in the air, sometimes as many as
                        four and five at once. Anyone who has ever shot woodcock will realize that
                        this was a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.
                           The shooting, however, was strictly routine. My two hunting buddies, who
                        have spent most of their adult lives at gun sports, collected several bushels
                        of alder leaves, a number of poplar saplings, a lot of sky-and two woodcock.
                        It was a horrible exhibition. Yet the& same hunters can and do kill ruffed
                        grouse, pheasants, or ducks regularly and with precision. .
                                                                                                             .   -A-        -   J

Elusive woodcock were first flushed by black cocker spaniel whose thick coat allows him to plunge into
underbrush when he scents a bird. Experienced hunters know value of gun dogs for upland shooting.
,   .       "Why?" I asked, showing them my own birds.
            They were annoyed with me. "Everybody knows wood-
        cock are tough targets," they told me. "You were just
        luckv."
                                                       misconceptions
            That experience emphasizes two ~ o p u l a r
        about woodcock. First, note the place where this con-
        centration of birds was found. This was Michigan. Yet
        shotgunning lore, whether written or spoken, indicates
        that the woodcock is a variety of wild poultry numerous
        only in the east, in New England and Pennsylvania.
            Second, and in spite of the shouts of rage this state-
        ment will bring forth from woodcock hunters, the wood-
        cock is not really a difficult target for the gunner. He is,
        in fact, an easy target. He is simply a bird wrapped up
        in the almost impregnable armor of a legend. The legend
        says he's tough to hit, and hunters believe it. With
        the result that even experienced gunners, when they find
        themselves facing the flying "timberdoodles," shoot like
        novices.
            Let's take these two misconceptions in the order in
        which they were stated. The fact that the Great Lakes
        country is a woodcocker's paradise is important because
        it puts a new and fabulous variety of field shooting within
        hunting-trip reach of hundreds of thousands of hunters          a


        who never knew it was there. New England, New York,
        and Pennsylvania have long been known as "woodcock
        country" because of the flights that pass over these areas
        from the breeding grounds in Nova Scotia and New
        Brunswick. But there is a tremendous woodcock breed-
         ing reservoir also in Ontario directly north of Lakes
        Huron, Michigan, and Superior from which great flocks
         migrate annually southward across the Great Lakes
         country. The two peninsulas of Michigan lie in the very
         center of this migration route, and more woodcock are
         harvested each Fall in Michigan than in any other state
         -sometimes more than in several of the eastern wood-
         cock states combined. Woodcock shooting in this region
         matches or excels any I have ever seen, and I am no
         stranger to the eastern coverts.
            So much for where to find them. The next question
         is, how to hit them.
            What is astonishing is not so much the ingrained belief
         that woodcock are difficult, or the fact that hunters do
         miss them, but why. The plain truth is, probably no game
         bird on earth is easier to topple. Fundamental blame for
         the gunner's failure to do so lies mainly in the following         "Easy to shoot" woodcock perch-
         situation. Almost every wingshot has the solid conviction,         es atop nest, was shot by tele-

    really no special reason for my choos-
    ing the Marlin brand. I simply got a
    chance to try out a Marlin Model 90
    over-under right after they came out
    with the model, liked it, and got myself
    a pair of them. They are well made
    substantial guns, and they perform
    beautifully. Their recoil is light in
    comparison to m o s t side-by-side
    doubles, and they handle rifled slug
    loads more accurately than the side-
    by-side doubles when used for big
    game hunting. Like some guns of other
    makes, these are "a lot of gun for the
    money ."
       My four guns represent an invest-
    ment of around $340.00. My ,22 auto-
    loader is equipped with a B-6 Weaver
    scope, and recently I installed a
    Weaver K2.5 scope on my .30-30. The
    total cost is still under $400.00 for the
    four guns. The varmint rifle, complete
    with scope, when and if I get it, will
    shove my total investment in guns up
    to $500.00 or just a little over, depend-
    ing on the scope I choose. In my esti-
    mation, for five really good guns
    capable of killing any kind of game I
    am apt to hunt, this will not be a "top-
    heavy" investment. Practically any

          THE ANSWER?

           HEW ARE PEOPLE in this country-people who should know the subject-
       w h o say that the day of free hunting in America is ending. Certainly t e   h
       hunting scene is changing with each season that passes; changing more rapidly
       than most hunters believe.
         We are all aware of the long-range changes. We know the story of the pas-
       senger pigeon, whose flights once darkened our skies with day-long curtains of
       countless millions of wings. The passenger pigeon is gone. We know the story
       of the buffalo, once also numbered high in the millions, now gone except for
       small, well-guarded herds. But are we equally aware of the rapid effects of our
       changing economy on wildlife today, on hunting as we know it? Thickening
       population, expanding and more intensive fanning, the draining of swamps and
       the control of rivers, and the mushroom growth of new housing communities
       are destroying waterfowl feeding grounds, replacing game coverts with lawns
       and concrete, driving game back and back into the few remaining zones of safety.
          Hunters are aware of the increasing "No Hunting" resistance of farmers and

property owners against the man with the gun. Many are indignant         *
about it. It is an ancient American concept that game belongs to us          '
all-    against the even older European concept that it belongs to the
owner of the land on which it is found. Our law supports our con-
tention that game is in the public domain; but it supports also the
equally basic belief that an owner of property has inalienable rights
to defend that property against trespass. And this includes farmers
who own land over which "our" game uses. It is only through
the generous (and rather amazing) tolerance of farmers and land-
owners generally that hunting has continued to be as free as it is.
                                  . .
But that tolerance is dwindling . and with cause.
   There is no real reason why a landowner should welcome armed
invasion of his land by any stranger who buys a hunting license.

   Yet hunting must go on, not only for the benefit of the hunter
but for the support of the wildlife conservation agencies which
are fighting hard and well to maintain this important and color-
ful segment of our national heritage.
   Times change, and perhaps free shooting must be replaced
by fee shooting-by hunting over controlled game preserves
commercially managed as game-raising and game-havesting
businesses. Provided these businesses are well managed, there

was turned in my direction, each muzzle upraised and pointed like a
cocked pistol. Blacker than the imps of hell, statuesque and immobile,
they loomed as large against the verdant jungle as so many M-48 tanks.
It seemed to me that the critters, unafraid, teetered on the edge of
decision, whether to charge me, stand boldly, or run. And it didn't
seem likely that they would run.
   I had traveled ten thousand miles for this meeting and, while I was
uncertain about the agenda for the session as drawn up by the
banteng, mine had long since been thought out. In the space of a
couple of seconds, I selected the biggest bull. He had very con-
siderately arranged himself so as to give me a quartering silhouette,
and I proceeded to lace 400 grains of metal into the point of his
shoulder. The range was 30 yards.

  man with courage, loyalty, and a sense of humor that would carry him through
all sorts of hardships and difficulties. "He'll do to hunt with" has the same
meaning. Your hunting partner should be able to laugh when things go wrong,
when the game escapes, as it sometimes does, when blankets are wet and fires
won't light, or even when you tell a joke he's heard before.
   Handling a gun safely and efficiently would be practically second nature
to this ideal hunting companion. You would never find yourself gazing down
the barrel of his gun while he nervously fumbled with the safety or trigger.

in.
   Converting a .22 rim-fire rifle to fit a small boy is fairly simple, but making
a 20 gauge shotgun and a .30-30 rifle suitable for his use is something else
again. With the .22 you merely cut off and bell the barrel and cut the stock
to fit. Incidentally, anyone who thinks that this will ruin the barrel is mis-
taken. I often use the one I fixed for Larry, and have found no loss of
accuracy.
    But converting a 20 gauge shotgun so that it will be pleasant for a 62%
pound boy to shoot it is another problem. Most shotgunners know that the
sharp kick of a light 20 is often as punishing as that of a 12; and bruising     "

gun that should be used on ducks, regardless of the size of the person on the
 other end. With the smaller gauges there are too many cripples, though the

   Brush-popping nimrods, intent on outwitting the wily,
skittish, and elusive whitetail, need no far-carrying arsenal.
Since most if not all of their shots will be at close ranges,
usually under a hundred yards, they do not have to worry
about muzzle velocity and flat trajectory. A bullet that will
cut brush without too much deflection is more important
than an extra hundred yards of reach.
   When banging away at the fantails of south Texas, my
"old reliable" Model 1894 Winchester .30-30 is adequate
to nearly every situation. Back before the days of stricter
rules and regulations, a shotgun loaded with No. 0 buck-
shot backed by a thimbleful of black powder, was the
common choice in that country-which re-proves the point
about short killing ranges.
   But when I started tramping the mountains of the West

In other words, they recommend a shot-

same type of action. The most perfectly
matched set so far is their Model 572 re-
