Ben O. Williams: A Legend of the Fall

STORY BY Roger Catchpole
PHOTOGRAPHY BY Roger Catchpole
‘‘

Ask Ben O. Williams and he will tell you that the wingshooting season does not start on opening day. Indeed, bird hunting is a year-round endeavor in the Williams household. Perhaps, therefore, it’s best to view Ben as a custodian of the countryside over which he hunts his dogs—for his methods surely favor his quarry above his game bag.

Ben Williams is a naturalist in the truest sense—an outdoorsman whose actions bridge the divide between environmentalist and hunter. He is a man for conservation and a man for hunting. After more than 50 years in the field, his love for the land, the game birds it supports, and his pointing dogs endures.
