My dad took me hunting upland game birds, starting from age 8. I have shotgunned and killed many Ring-necked Pheasants as a result of this wonderful father and son bonding exercise. My dad’s hunting companions’ term for RNPH was Chink, in honor of the pheasant’s Chinese ancestry. Charming men, they were. They are all dead now, too.
