DRIVING OF PHEASANT POWTS
DRIVING OF PHEASANT POWTS. Place your nets loose or circularly across the pheasant paths, and taking the wind with you, go to their haunts and call them together with a pheasant call. When they begin to duck you should desist, and taking your driver make a noise with it amongst the boughs and bushes. They will immediately commence running, and if you continue the noise and conceal yourself, will run, like so many sheep, into the nets.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
