On a crisp November evening two years ago there gathered at a certain home in Denver a half dozen sportsmen whose hearts were attune to the influences of big game hunting. They were Judge F. A. Williams, Dr. J. W. Anderson, D. W. King, Geo.

Tuesday, September 12, when we arose the weather was still cloudy but the sun soon peeped out from among the clouds and it began to brighten up. H. E. and I decided to try to obtain some pictures of sheep and to shoot some ptarmigan. Some distance walk from camp, H. E. bagged two fine ptarmigan.

I enclose a picture taken one night of a fire of pine cones (time exposure). As it turned out, nothing shows except the fire, which is white, with the space around it black. On turning it around, one side forms a perfect face, that of a woman, and the flames shooting upward make the flowing hair.

In reading the November number of Outdoor Life, I was greatly interested in an article written by Chauncey Thomas and heartily endorse his ideas in regard to the unprepared condition of the United States for war. His ideas as to training our boys in the outdoors and teaching them so that they will be able to take care of themselves is correct in every particular.

I see that our friends, the scientists, are again threshing over the question of mind, intelligence, in the so-called lower animals, and the con census of scientific opinion seems to be that only man thinks, uses judgment, plans and exercises what they are pleased to call intelligence.

The sun had just hidden himself behind the Grand Teton and the chill of an October evening was insidously creeping from the shadow of the mountain side towards the undulated mesa to the east, when a sharp turn of the trail brought into view a squat cabin, with smoke ascending from the rude chimney which protruded through the dirt roof.

It is very popular with the Fenimore-Cooper-Leather-Stocking school of writers to have the lone Indian, when night overtakes him, light his campfire, wrap himself in his one blanket and bid defiance to the cold. All of which is very romantic, makes excellent reading, but is several points off the truth.

Editor Outdoor Life
I have been a much-interested reader of your magazine for some time and have been particularly interested in discussions appearing therein concerning brook trout. I believe I have read all the articles appearing in your magazine since O. K. Pressentin started the interesting discussion, and will say, from the reading of these articles and the description given of the trout, whatever kind it may be, that the same trout which Mr. Pressentin found in Washington, appears in the smaller mountain streams tributary to the St.

As a reader of your interesting magazine I am enclosing you a photo of a native mountain trout which is reported the largest of this species taken from the Stillwater river during the season of 1912. The larger of two shown in the photo measured 24¾ inches and weighed within 2 ounces of 8 pounds.

T. L. S., Highland, Ills.—Upland game birds are getting scarce in this section, but we have fairly good duck shooting in season. I have a good pointer, four years old strong and in perfect health, a first class retriever on land and from water, and as there is but little work for him am thinking of using him at duck hunting this season.

No, I am not interested in the slightest in this arm for the purpose for which it was originally intended, but as it can be used for target and hunting as well as for “shooting out” of the tightest corner any cavalryman is ever likely to find himself in, and knowing from the many inquiries that have been fired my way for information concerning this new creation from the Colts factory of the interest being taken in this arm, it is with pleasure that I avail myself of this opportunity to give them my impressions of the arm and cartridge.

E. L. Stevenson
In reading articles written by hunters telling of their experiences in the game field, one is struck by the widely different results obtained by users of practically the same caliber and power. One enthusiast declared that his .30-30 was good enough for him, even if he were going to hunt in Africa over the same country traveled by Roosevelt.

Enclosed are three photographs of an old gun I have just finished remodeling. It is a Remington .44, originally made for powder and ball. The barrel is 8 inches long; length over all is 13½ inches, and the weight is about 47 ounces. When I received it from Bannerman the end of the cylinder carrying the nipples had been turned off, a steel ring brazed on, and the cylinder chambered for the Old Model Colt’s .44 cartridge.

S. E. Wright
In the November issue of your magazine I note an article by one who signs himself “A Steady Hold,” in which he prognosticates the retirement of the shotgun from the game fields. It is to be hoped that his prognostications do not come true. Personally, I would be able to get along without the shotgun as I, too, am somewhat a steady hold; but I have used a shotgun since childhood and have watched its development from the little single-barrel up to the beautiful trap and field grades now being put out by our leading makers.

Tumbling over a number of hunting magazines and catalogues gives one the unavoidable impression that this outdoor life is a rich man’s game, like the law. Cartridges are from 5 to 10 cents each, rifles cost from $25 to $100 and last only a thousand shots or so, while shotguns cost from two to five times as much more.

Editor Outdoor Life:—The increasing scarity of many of the fur-bearing animals and the increased demand for furs has for a long time been the subject for considerable attention by the experts of the Department of Agriculture. Until the past session of Congress, however, an appropriation could never be obtained for use in experimenting in the propagation and raising of fur-bearing animals, which lack of funds has seriously retarded and impeded the work along the lines of investigating the possibilities of raising animals purely for the fur markets.

We have always contended that mountain sheep, elk and moose are each animals of such rare value as trophies and such vast importance to a state when alive that no more than one of each of them should ever by law be allowed to be killed by one person in a single season.
