Re: Woodcock defect?
Nearly every bird with a "defect", you are claiming to probably be caused by pellets. Missing toes all caused by pellets?? I'd say not. Having been a part of raising tens of thousands of pheasants, missing toes and "defects" of legs and beaks are pretty common. They were either born like that or they did it to themselves, cause there was no chance of being hit with pellets. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't think that page makes hunters look good at all.
