Muggins by Havilah Babcock on Sporting Classics Daily


Havilah Babcock’s Muggins

“First published in the September 1937 issue of Field & Stream under the title “Old Muggins” and subsequently in The Best of Babcock (1974), this wonderful story now appears in The Greatest Quail Hunting Book Ever, new from Sporting Classics.”

Sporting Classics Daily posted recently a chapter out of their Greatest Quail Hunting Book Ever (which I strongly recommend for you upland library) a reprint of one of my favorite Babcock stories.  Babcock wrote with great flair and captured the voice of the South when a bird was a gentleman and a dog was used to pursue said birds.   Babcock will always remain one of my top 5 favorite writers.
