Corey Ford, one of America's finest and most loved outdoor writers, was also a dedicated wingshooter. Every fall he and his English setters, Tober and Cider, would hunt the hills and thickets of New Hampshire for grouse and woodcock. Corey also frequented the heart of quail country in North Carolina. There he would spend several weeks each winter pursuing the gentleman bobwhite quail. Here is a collection of his best wingshooting stories, many of them previously unpublished. Written with a sense of humor, The Trickiest Thing in Feathers is a definitive collection of lost bird hunting classics.
