CAR­RY­ING IN THE FIELD

Outdoor Life - - DISPATCHES - —W.B.

I grew up watch­ing my dad take his Winch­ester Model 37 16-gauge into the woods, and came to be­lieve that sin­gle bar­rel was a myth­i­cal bushy­tail blaster. It’s choked Full and throws a hell of a pat­tern with “high brass” 7 ½s. Dad of­fi­cially gave it to me one Christ­mas when I was in col­lege, and I used it when I took my 3-year-old on his first squir­rel hunt. We killed two and ate them that night.
