MOOSE HUNTING IN NEW BRUNSWICK
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
CYRUS THOMPSON
In the fall of 1912 my son, Wm. A. Thompson, and I hunted in New Brunswick, Canada, an account of which appeared in the March, 1913, number of Outdoor Life. The hunt that year was not satisfactory so far as game was concerned, we having seen possibly sixty moose—bulls, cows and calves—but no bulls with antlers up to our ideals, hence we killed none, though we might easily have shot ten or twelve.

WM. BRENT ALTSHELER
Upon arrival at Nairobi I procured permission from Sexton’s Garage to pitch my tent and organize my safari on a vacant lot opposite the new postoffice on Sixth Avenue. I had picked up a few Swahili words, but was not dependent on them. A friendly acquaintance had sent me two Uganda “boys,” and one of them understood English passably well and served as interpreter in dealing with natives of several different races, who also usually understood Swahili.

A. L. MOFFAT
When a man once become possessed with an infatuation for the sport of the fisherman it generally lasts from youth till old age incapacitates him. In the days of his youth, when he proudly marched home with two sunfish and a bullhead, caught with the aid of a willow branch, a piece of twine and a clumsy hook baited with a worm, there seemed to his youthful mind nothing greater to be accomplished in the field of angling.

GEORGE H. STIPP
About the tamest kind of camping that could be imagined, outside of camping in one's own back yard, is probably camping in the "Big Basin," or "California Redwood Park," as it is officially called. This locality, nevertheless, is one boasting not only many beauty attractions, hut also many things of interest to the mind that soars a bit higher than a bottle of beer and a can of sardines.

Tacoma and Pearce County, Wash., have started a crusade for game protection, the effect of which in years to come is bound to be beneficial and far reaching. Going on the theory that the best time to sow seeds of good is when the boy is at the receptive age of 12 to 20 years, the above named city and county have formed an organization called the Boy Scouts of Tacoma and Pierce County, the object of which is to preserve, protect and propagate the game and fish.

I saw a little race the other day of a couple black greyhounds after a jack rabbit that made me think a greyhound was a dirty coward. It was at some little station between Burrton and Wichita (I have forgotten just what place), but as the train stopped I heard some yelling and looked out the window, and in a corn field that was next to the station came two greyhounds right after a big jack, and not over ten or fifteen feet behind him.

I would like to have a few words to say in regard to a question asked by Harry G. Ennis in the August, 1913, number of Outdoor Life. This question was referred to the Bureau of Archaeology, Washington, D. C., and concerned the methods used by the Indians in cutting or chipping to the proper shape their hammers, spear heads and axes made out of flint or agate.

The islands of Borneo and Java, and possibly others, have the distinction of numbering among their fauna a large frog, commonly called the "flying-frog." As seen in the illustration, the toes are very long and fully webbed to the extremities so that when expanded they furnish a greater surface than the rest of the body.

Among the many valuable hints to campers and sportsmen which have appeared from time to time in the different sporting magazines, I have never noticed anything about finding the time at night by the North Star and the Big Dipper." Thinking it might be of use at some time to some fellow hunter, whose timepiece has gone wrong, I have drawn a rough diagram by which I will show how the time may be approximately calculated at any time when the stars can be seen.

February is the month for dreams, dreams of things past and of things to come. When the wild wind swirls about the house, piling the white drifts high and ever higher, and the mad flames in the fireplace leap up the broad throat of the chimney, eager to do battle with the werewolf of the northland, then bring out the photographs of last summer’s trip and live over again the delightful experiences which they call to mind, or take down the railway folders and resort advertisements and plan next summer’s outing.

Coming down from the Cascade range of mountains are numerous rivers and creeks that are fed during the summer by the melting snows of the high mountains. The water is pure and ice cold and these streams are well stocked with trout. There are several varieties but all are real trout, or, as we say in the northeastern states, "speckled trout."

If one can judge accurately from reports published of the one-hand .22 caliber arm at the big shooting events, the single shot target pistols continue to hold first place in the hearts of the expert target shots, though this of itself is not proof positive that the target revolvers of this caliber which have been placed on the market within the past few years in response to the demands of revolver shooters are not accurate or desirable arms in many ways.

Trap shooting is the only organized sport that has been able to rear its head above the ever-rising flood of baseball popularity in the United States and maintain national recognition. This means that the pursuit of the clay bird—now called “The Sport Alluring” from ocean to ocean — has inherent qualities which demand the appreciation of sportsmen who would cultivate poise, sureness of eye and judgment, suppleness of muscle and general ruddy, outdoor healthfulness.

There are always two sides to any question, and like other problems, there are two sides to the New York firearms law; there is an argument for and against the law as it now stands, and after making a pretty careful study of the conditions on both sides, it seems to me the argument is all against it, with no reasonable excuse to offer for such a radical law, other than that it helps to suppress lawlessness, and that in itself is a very thin excuse, as bad men any time, any place, will take a chance of getting caught with the goods on them if out gunning for anybody.

I saw an inquiry in your last issue in regard to the Marble Game Getter. I gave this arm quite a tryout on my last trip. The .22 is very accurate if used as either a pistol or as a rifle with the skeleton stock. What queers the gun for me is the fact that the .22 and the .44 would not shoot with the same sights.

“All-around pistol and revolver champion of the United States” is the latest distinction won by Alfred P. Lane, the twenty-one-year-old wizard of the short arm. In the 1913 matches of the United States Revolver Association, participated in by the leading pistol and revolver shots from ocean to ocean, this young New Yorker made a grand aggregate score in all matches of 1,261 out of a possible 1,400—a mark never before approached.

Our California contributor, Louis Herzog, writes as follows, under date of December 8, 1913: “The Pastime Gun Club of San Diego, Cal. (110 members), is a live wire in the matter of trap shooting. At the meeting held on December 10 committees were appointed to arrange the winter shoots, beginning New Year’s day, when all shooters expect to shoot in their shirt sleeves, which the beautiful, balmy climate of San Diego permits, and thereafter a shoot will be held every two or three weeks until the game season is over, and then each Sunday.

Before me as I write lies one of Col. Samuel Colt's famous cap-and-ball revolvers which has seen service in the Civil War, and which I, for reasons of my own, am extremely anxious to secure the history of, the object of this article being that perhaps some old veteran who has owned this revolver may by chance strike these pages and be able to fill in a missing link in this weapon's history.

News from Washington, D. C., is to the effect that the Ordnance Board is making tests from time to time with a so-called "Springfield carbine," the arm to be used in the event it passes the tests by the United States Cavalry. The present Springfield is a short rifle as compared to the Krag or old Springfield .45-70, and is with the 1906 ammunition a most excellent rifle, as good or better than arms in use by other nations, yet for mounted service it is at best unwieldy; no plainsman would adopt it for strictly saddle use.

Perhaps a number of your readers would be interested to know that the 1912 model Winchester shotgun is now on the market in 16 gauge. It is similar in mechanism and appearance to the 20-gauge and, I am confident, will meet with equally as cordial a reception by the shooters.

Although I am not on your books as a subscriber, nevertheless I take great pleasure in reading your magazine every month, especially the part on firearms. Having been infected with the germ ever since a boy, I have finally become a chronic “gun bug” and the only relief I can get from this disease is by either burning powder myself or reading about the powder the other fellow burns.

Jas. O. Fitzpatrick, Watertown, N. Y.— Will you have some of the gentlemen like Lieutenant Whelen or Mr. Newton tell me if it would be safe to drive the 115-grain .32-20 W. C. F. bullet with the powder charge of the 1906 Springfield? Answer (by Mr. Newton).—There is no question but that it would be amply safe, from the standpoint of injury to the shooter, to use the .32-20 W. C. F. bullet in the Springfield with the full charge of 1909 military powder.

The colored plates of game birds and hunting subjects run in this volume make it especially attractive.
