AN INTERESTING study on deer hunting attitudes by hunters and non-hunters has been completed at Rutgers University in New Jersey—one of the most heavily populated of the Eastern States. Almost a quarter of a million deer hunters turn out each fall for their favorite sport.

Bravo! for your editorial in the October issue. With more hunters on less land, hunter safety courses are no longer something we can afford to do without. I would add that additional stress must be placed on the idea that the man with the gun, like Caesar’s wife, must be above reproach.

TED TRUEBLOOD
ONE summer day when I was about 15, my father came to the house along in the middle of the afternoon and found me on the back porch tying flies. That farmhouse porch was a delightful cool, airy, and shady place, much superior to the sundrenched field where I should have been working, and I had a fly-tying bench in one corner.

After participating in the First National Bass Symposium in early 1975, I wrote a lengthy article for FIELD & STREAM on the status of black bass fishing and black bass management in the United States. If there was anything about this subject that was crystal clear to me, as I stressed in the article, it was that we didn't know very much about the nation's numero uno fish.

GEORGE REIGER
This January, as we thumb through our 1976 files, we have a feeling that conservation progress was made this past year. While some important battles were lost —and while many more are still being fought by courageous volunteers—overall, the war is going better now than at any time since masses of raw recruits rallied to the flag on “Earth Day” seven years ago.

Sides gleaming like hammered silver, the great fish cleaves the water in a magnificent display of acrobatics, skipping across the green surface of the northwestern river like a flat stone. An instant later it surges for the depths of the pool, ripping 15-pound-test monofilament from a spinning reel that growls in protest.

Water moccasins are big, mean, and aggressive, but luckily their “punch” does not have a potency to match that of a real champion. There are two subspecies of Agkistordon piscivorus; A. p. piscivorus, the eastern moccasin, and A.| p. leucostoma, the western moccasin.

WHAT? You Aren’t Tying Flies Yet?

JIM BASHLINE
As a teenage fly tyer during World War II, I had few places to turn for fly-tying materials. Good hooks were almost a black-market commodity, and decent feathers were a rarity. Hethers, the landmark purveyor of fly-tying goodies, was trying to supply the trade, but most of us had to make do with local supplies obtained from barnyards and small dealers like L. L. Smith in Roulette, Pennsylvania.

THE January issue of the magazine seems to be a good time to cover some topics that fall on the periphery of the usual when, where, and how-to fishing matters. Three such subjects that strike my fancy are filleting, casting practice, and wader repair.

HUNTING THE BIG-GAME BIRD

NELSON BRYANT
Our bicentennial year seemed an ideal time to have a spring hunt for turkeys in New York State, for the wild turkey is a truly American bird, one that would have—if Ben Franklin had been sufficiently persuasive—become the symbol of a new nation’s freedom and aspirations.

IF YOU haven’t already found the scope of your dreams, or are contemplating a change, here are some things to look for when purchasing a riflescope. The first thing to remember is that you get what you pay for. Unbranded or unknown scopes may cost you more in the end than a quality, brand-name product.

JOHN WOOTTERS
IT WILL come as news to no one who reads the sporting press that the Second Age of Black Powder is upon us. It may, however, surprise some sportsmen to discover that the eruption of interest in muzzleloading guns has now been confirmed by the appearance on the market of a black powder rifle bearing the trade name of one of America’s oldest and most respected major manufacturers of sporting firearms, and that persistent rumors tell of tentative efforts on the part of such firms as Remington, Browning, and even Weatherby, to develop muzzleloading arms and to sample the market potential for same.

GARY SITTON
There were guns in my father’s house. I can’t recall just when I knew what they were, but I always knew they were not to be touched in play. He got me a BB gun when I was 5, and we would go down to the river and shoot little paper targets. And when I was 8 or so, he bought a single-shot .22 for me.

ALTHOUGH the Wulff dry flies are normally considered to be salmon dry flies, the Grey Wulff, which was the first of the series, was conceived and tied on a classic trout stream, the Ausable, in the Adirondacks of New York State. The innovative angler, Lee Wulff, was searching for a dry fly with a larger, more durable body than the standard British patterns that were in use in 1930.

More than a million geese are bagged annually by our nation’s hunters, and the goose population is growing every year. The young birds are especially prized for their tender, lean, dark meat, but the older ones are also tasty if they're treated right in the kitchen.

Gun Laws: Some Work, Some Don’t

E. B. MANN
Ask any proponent of gun controls why he wants anti-gun legislation and he will tell you, “To curb crime! Keep guns out of the hands of criminals and there will be fewer crimes!” My files show that they have been using these same arguments for more than half a century—using them in spite of statistical proof back through all those years that their arguments are false, that gun-control laws do not keep guns out of criminal hands and do not curb crime.

ODE TO A DEEK HUNTER

DAN FLORES
Pete used to say (I can hear him now) that once a man had hunted alone, had learned to take on a smart old buck on a one-to-one basis and had come out on top, he’d never want to waste his time doing it any other way. "Take an old buck now-one that’s seen a few winters,” he’d say, leaning forward in the relic of a rocking chair, his clear gray eyes steady and serious.

FROSTBITTEN anglers are probably the most gimmick-minded of all outdoorsmen who venture forth during the winter months. And their veritable storehouse of “necessities” ranges from power ice augers to battery-operated electric socks.

If you’re dreaming of a winter vacation, an escape from centralheating and snow, consider the following: schools of tarpon are rolling in Central American rivers. Big concentrations of marlin have formed off the coasts of Panama and Ecuador.

Hawaii: a Sportsman’s Holiday

Backpack Field Test

STEVE NETHERBY
THE 100-fathom line sweeps by the island of Hawaii near Keahole Point, then heads out to the northwest. Beyond the 100-fathom shelf the sea floor falls abruptly, eventually sounding to more than 18,000 feet below the warm, soft swells that pulse at the hull of the Mona H. George Parker, cradling a steering-wheel spoke in the crook of his left arm and eyeing the fishing line trailing aft, guides the broadhipped Mona H instinctively above the shelf.

Contrary to popular belief, the sunny Southland can sometimes get cold; and particularly so very early in the morning on a cloudless winter day. Such was the case a few Januaries ago when a frigid nor’wester howled through southeast Louisiana, leaving behind abnormally low tides, absolutely no wind, and temperature readings in the mid-20s.

THESE SOLUNAR TAULES©, originally conceived by John Alden Knight, are designed to forecast the times of the day when fish and game are most likely to feed and be active. Based on the movements of the sun and moon in relation to the earth, they predict the time each day when the best sport can be expected, although because of variable weather and habitat conditions they do not guarantee you will catch fish or find game.

To make a buck, evict a duck, drain his home for corn! That’s been America’s pursuit ’til now—making the wilderness a fit place to live. But in 1977, some of us can’t live by corn alone. Consequently, we make ducks by spending bucks to reclaim the corn for marsh.

Your first night trek for bass is not soon forgotten, even when it’s as disastrous as mine was. Looking back, I find comfort in blaming my noisy V-hull, which I told friends was stamped out of recycled bean cans. Or I accuse the old, silverware-in-the-disposal electric motor, which, no matter where I aimed it, always headed north.
