Same of the Difficulties That Confront
the Man With the Gun.
'•One of the difficulties of quail
shooting lies in the re:y fact that

"Let me illustrate: If a quail rose
within ten feet of the gun and contin
ued sailing around the shooter's head
at a mile a minute trait the chances
are that he couldn't be killed in ten
shots, both the bird and the gun
changing angle with a rapidity beyond
the ability of the mind to calculate.
In the same v.;iy a close springing bird
may change his angle with regard to
the gun so rapidly as to email a long
and accurate swing before he can be

movement, but meantime the quarry
would probably have gone in some
other direction. The quail work that
