I hope that SI will not stop with this one article. I truly believe more people are interested in the booting game than many of the pastimes that receive regular coverage in your publication.
What a sportsman?"I shot the buck as it lay in unafraid comfort, etc., etc."
For shame?why should you condone such sportsmanship.
?Niehuis accomplished the supreme achievement in deer hunting: to stalk the buck to his bed without alarming that extraordinarily sensitive animal. The odds against this are staggering and no poor sportsmanship is involved in killing the animal as it lies.?ED.
It reminded one a bit of stories like Mr. H. L. Herbert's. They were unable to get balls and mallets when he formed his club so they put together several sets with hay-rake handles and croquet mallet heads. Later on Mr. Herbert guided the affairs of the U.S. Polo Association for over 30 years.
I sometimes wonder if all the fuss about level fields is so important. One of the clubs in Massachusetts used a field (considered one of the very best for over half a century) with such a dip at one end that spectators could only see bobbing heads....
?H. L. Herbert, father of American polo, served as chairman of the Polo Association from 1890 to 1921. Miss Prescott's dipping field was located at Myopia.?ED.
