KNOCK-OUT IX FIFTH.
The knock-out blow came, in the fifth

knock-out ever seen in a rlhg fight, and

OF GAME BIRDS
Hunting the Wild Turkey in His
A MOST EXCITING SPORT.
GreatPatlcncf, Experience and Know?
ledge of Their Habits l?cquircd
by Those AVho Would Kill
These Wary Fo*ivte.
There is no more pleasant sport, nor one
about which so little is generally known
as that of hunting the monarch, of
game birds, the wild turkey. There are
probably few people who do not know
something of the Way of hunting the hare,
tho partridge; deer, etc. The magazines
abound in descriptions of these, but sel?
dom have I seen a description of a tur?
key hunt and the few I have seen appear
to have been written by persons whose ac?
quaintance with and affection for wild
turkey was formed after the noble bird
has been plucked and served.
Now for the sake of those who have
never seen this monarch in his native
haunts, let me say that they have not j
the faintest idea of his beauty, nor of j
the tireless patience as well as quickness
of action and knowledge of his habits,
which are necessary to anyone who out?
wits this wary bird. _^
Let us accompany an old hunter and see
if we cannot get a better understanding
of the modus operandi, even if we do not
catch the ardor which every turkey hun?
ter feels when "chill (November's surly
blast, lays fields and forests bare," and
which is as indescribable as it Is irresist
AN EARLY STAKT.
It is a cold, crisp, frosty morning in
the la*ter part of November when we get
UP with great reluctance from our-com I
foritable ted and peep out to see If the
signs aro propitictis. Everything ?s -flue
and we dress as quickly as possible and
feed our hordes. Having hastily made
ar.d swallowed a cup of coffee And some
cold breakfast, we whistle trie dogs, two
English setters, not forgetting to give
them some breakfast, saddle our horsc3'
and we aro off at a gallop with the
frosty air putting new- life into us and
the sun justing peeping from th? eastern
horizon, making the spider wets with
which the fields are spangled to sparkle
like brilliant gems.
After a ride of a mile or two tic turn
Inte the mountain, for we know a flock
of turkeys use or? range, here. A flock
of wild turkeys, if not disturbed, will usu?
ally range the same territory day after
day and as long as they find a plenty to
eat, will not use above a mila of country.
Arrived at the woods, there are two of
us, the old hunter and I, who, while not
an-old am an enthusiastic hunter, we
separate to "drive" the, south side of the
mountain, agreeing to meet at the other
end and report unless we .start something
before then, In which case, of course, we
signal each other..
"FRESH SIGNS." *:
We-"drive," that ia ride slowly- through
the woods about,a hundred yards apart,
the dogs hunting before us.
. "Any-signa?" I ask when we arrive at
the place o? meeting agreed on.
"No; that Is nothing fresh. There's

"Yes sir. Tho whole mountain's torn ,

"Here, Mack," and he whistles the dogs I
and we head our horses for the top ol i

ears alert. Suddenly we hear several
short quick barks ana then put! put! ana
the flapping of wings. The turkeys have
Tieing our horses at a safe distance, wo
go to the place where the turkeys rose
and there are the dogs lying down con?
tentedly and wagging their tales, saying
as plainly as a dog ?-an. "We have ?lone
our part, now do yours."
"A COUNCIL OF WAR."
We hold a council of war as to the
proper location of our blinds, which is a
very Important element in our chances of *
sutreess. We know that for at least an
hour and. probably, as it's late in the
season and these turkeys have been hunt?
ed a good deal, for much longer, the tur?
keys will not make a sign. After that
time, they will, if our luck is good, begin
to yelp and' slowly work back to the
place where they were Hushed. Taking
advantage of this fact, we locate our j
blinds with due regard to the topography ?
of tho ground and remembering that a |
turkey will come up hill, but will rareiy ?
go tlcjwn to get with another turkey. !
They seem to have great ' regard to the |
superiority of position.
Now as to building "blinds," too much,
care cannot be taken and many a m ?
has gone home empty-handed because he
failed' to build his blind properly.
,? blind should be'high enough to hide
you when standing up. It is perferably
built from oled logs, but one has to use
whatever material Is at hand. After fin?
ishing my blind and waiting about an
hour, I gave three yelps very <rautiot_>!>
and then waited In breathless expectation,
but get no response.
After waiting another short while, I
yelp again .and, yes, surely that la a
turkey answering me. Now comes tho
most exciting contest imaginable. If I
can fool the turkey and make no strange
noises and don't ye'.p too often or too
long aael a thousand other things, I may
have a fine gobbler tied to my saddle
when I ride home.
Nearer ami nearer he oomee and I can
tell by his yelp that It is an old gobbler.
Yes, there he is?I see him, and imme?
diately duck down In my blind and only
watch through the port holes, which I
left for the parpcrse one or. each side.
Mack is quivering with excitement, while
I don't dare yelp now. and only wait
for him to come a little closer. My gun
Is pointing toward Kim through the port
hole. Why won't he stop a moment? HI3
head keeps moving biek and forth and
it Is very hard to draw a bead on it. He
is plenty close enough now. If he only
would be still. Finally In desperation. I
?pull the trigger. Mack rushes out and
almost before I can get t?> my feet, he is
on the turkey; and such a flapping of
wings. I rush to his assistance and put
In tho finishing touches. "He Is a beauty,
twenty-five pounds at least and five Inches
of beard. I ride home with infinite con?
tent and eat a dinner that makes the. rest
of the family stare and gape, having had
the pleasanrest episode In a man's life?
the killing of my first turkey.
