Hunters and Cabins

Here's a difficult Logic Puzzle that comes from a 1975 Creative Computing magazine. It isn't easy; it could swallow up a day of your time, even a week, but it will take more than an hour.



The following 15 clues are all you need to solve this Logic Problem:


1. There are five hunting cabins on a lake. Each cabin is a different color, and is inhabited by a man of a different nationality, each drinking a different kind of liquor, firing a different brand of shotgun shell, and shooting a different duck.

2. The Englishman lives in the red cabin.

3. The Pole shoots only bluebills.

4. Bourbon is drunk in the green cabin.

5. The Finn drinks beer.

6. The green cabin is immediately to the right (your right) of the brown cabin.

7. The hunter who uses Winchester shells shoots mallards.

8. Remington shells are shot in the yellow cabin.

9. Brandy is drunk in the middle cabin.

10. The Norwegian lives in the first cabin on the left.

11. The man who buys Federal shells lives in the cabin next to the cabin of the man who shoots red heads.

12. Remington shells are used in the cabin next to the cabin where canvasbacks are shot.

13. The hunter who shoots Western shells drinks gin.

14. The Irish man loads up with Peters shells.

15. The Norwegian lives next to the blue cabin.



Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to figure out who drinks Scotch and who shoots the teal.
