I'm talking HUNTING here, fair chase. For Pheasant, Ruffed Grouse, and Woodcock you need a shotgun, pump or autoloader are best, though a double barrel or single shot will work. Just as important if you want to bring home the birds is a good hunting Dog. Without a Dog you'll walk past and even over birds (especially Grouse) that will fly up at your feet and scare the crap out of you, messing up your shot. Also, Pheasants run and hide in thick brush when hit but not killed. Grouse can blend in with dead leaves and in thickets so that you'll never find them. I hunt Pheasant and Grouse regularly in season, not with a .22 on the Internet.
