Third Ridge - 1200 Miles

As it originally appeared in the January 1944 Issue of "Outdoor Life"

This story of Bob's rabbit hunt in Third Ridge, near his hometown of Portage, Wisconsin evokes familiar images as he journeys to the place he hunted when he was a kid for another family excursion. With his dad and brother Tom, he spends the day in a race against the rabbits and the impending first blizzard of the year. The family closeness and enjoyment of the hunt, along with the coziness of the retreat before the storm hits creates a warmhearted hunting tale.
