Woodcock are

By BYRON W. DALRYMPLE
Twoodcock the likes
HREE SEASONSAGO,two friends and stumbled upon a gathering of flight

of which I hardly dare to hope I'll ever again. They
see
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

Many sportsmen prefer the quick shots of a double, side-by-


side or over-under. for woodcock, but author says guns may
range from "21" quality to inex&nsive H & R single (right).

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."
That experience emphasizes two ~ o p u l a rmisconceptions
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-
photo lens, but hunter finds bet-
gained from endless repetition of the usual woodcock ter shooting sliding two shells

as gauge for range estimation. Learn by experi-

to do likewise. With the result that hundreds of fine
game animals die in lingering agony from hits in
places far removed from the quickly lethal areas
recommended by the writing experts. .
Why do these experts boast about such shots,
anyway? It's not hunting. There is no game animal

head. Terrain like this will fool even experienced gumem. :

Good hunters can and do get shots like this, for clean kills.

S
I FEE SHOOTING
THE ANSWER?
By JOHNNY MOCK

THE MANAGEMENT PROVIDES THE BIRDS, YOU


PAY AS YOU HUNT. IS THIS GOODÑO I S IT UNSPORTING?
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 the
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.

shoot his stock, leave his gates open, use weapons carelessly near
his home and family. Who can blame him? True, we are not
all guilty of these offenses; but enough of us are guilty to justify
the fears of the farmer; and the innocent suffer with the guilty.
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
is not much difference, after all, between these and the con-
trolled hunts staged on federal or state preserves by conservation
agencies. There is not much difference in the fee, for many of

But the controlled shooting vreserve. when privately owned

ers, some of them, despise these buinesses, insist that such shoot-

fed for sheer slaughter.
"Iis just possible that we need to re-orient our ideas of what
is sport and what is slaughter. American hunters cried out in

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.
The bull went down. But he came up again just as rapidly, and

That wound his clock. The gunning from first shot to last had

The gun was my .450-400, a lever action M71, rechambered and re-

lion sportsmen. If these shooting men represent an average cross
section of our population, then we may assume that more than one
million of these Americans are left handed. But the only truly potent
"standard" weapons suitable for African and Asian game are bolt
action, with bolt-handles on the right for right-handers only. Seems
to me that the manufacturers are missing a whale of a big market
in not providing left handled guns for these southpaw shooting men.
Anyway, it was this situation which persuaded me to select a wildcat
lever-action rifle, the first I have ever used on really big game. It is not
a long range arm, but I did not expect it to be. I am a strong believer in

H guns safely and well-an ardent and sincere hunter more interested in
the pursuit of the game than in the ~ o k e rgame going on in someone's cabin
a sportsman in the truest sense of the word, who would never bellyache
about the weather, his equipment, or the apparent scarcity of game, but would
concentrate on overcoming these obstacles and making the hunt a success?
In the old West, "He'll do to ride the river with" was high praise, describing
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.

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%

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.

is no sign that other brands of gun3 do not
come within the average sportsman's budget.
Many, including myself, like to stick to one
brand, and this is not a bad idea where such
is possible. The Remington people are now

coming along with the "matched set" idea.
In other words, they recommend a shot-
gun, .22 rifle, and big game rifle all of the
same type of action. The most perfectly
matched set so far is their Model 572 re-
peating .22 rifle, Model 760 high power rifle,
and Model 870 repeating shotgun. And I
have an idea, if the "matched set" idea goes
over as well as I think it will, that the
Remington folks will soon add more var-
mint calibers to their Model 760.
Without scopes on either of the rifles, this

The pump action repeaters come about as

made. Good balance, sturdy construction,

popularity of pump action repeaters.
