Default Woodcock

On an early Grade 2 toplever. Would be more appropriate on a 0 frame 16 gauge, but this is on a 4 frame 10 gauge

That’s the Parker Bros. Trademark woodcock.

It’s about as out of place on a 4-frame 10 gauge as a stag elk is on a 0-frame twenty gauge grade 4 or 5.

Thought this was a particularly good example. Like Dean says, not exactly a woodcock gun

There is a GH 8 gauge that has ducks on all 3 engraving patterns. That would be a good one. The land birds on mine look like turkeys and that is very appropriate

That is definitely a woodcock in the wrong place, from what I know about woodcock. Also don't recall hearing them found in the wide open rolling prairie. Maybe it is suppose to be a King Rail, which I understand to be related to emus which can vicious birds requiring max fire power.
