THE sportsman, the fisherman, the photographer, and the naturalist will be interested in several well-written papers in our July number. Hunting the wild turkey near our southern border, experiences with the big horn and the secrets of the trap line, will form a set of articles that will delight the heart of the big game hunter; while the anglers will welcome Dr. Wetherill’s able paper on Yellowstone Park fishing.

HUNTING BIG GAME IN ALASKA
PART II

[no value]
J. R. FARRELL
The first chapter of this story, published last month, told of the beginning of a hunt which the author and three companions had on Knik Arm, Kenai Peninsula, Alaska, this part concluding the story. The last chapter ended with the recital of the killing of a nice ram by the author.

’Tis raining out tonight; The drops against my pane Like tears, are glist’ning bright, As falls the April rain! The sobbing winds I hear While loud without they call, And trees and flowers rear Their heads, and droop and fall. Somewhere I know a wood, All green and dense and bright, Above the hill it stood,— ’Tis raining there tonight!

J. A. McGUIRE
The three grandest American trophies (with, possibly, a couple of Arctic exceptions) are undoubtedly the moose, the grizzly bear and the sheep, in the order named. But judged by the difficulty in hunting and killing them, the order would be reversed—placing the sheep first, the grizzly next and the moose last.

O. W. SMITH
There are 365 days in a year, some of which are denominated holidays while others are called holy days, but no holy day or holiday bulks larger in an angler’s affections than Opening Day, the day that marks the beginning of the trout season. The day may not be typed in red upon our calendars, for it varies in different states, but no disciple of Walton needs a calendar to inform him when the law is off.

A tent is a house of cloth—in a storm it may be a house of cards—and there are as many shapes and kinds, and almost as many sizes, of tents as there are of houses. First we will very briefly consider what applies to all tents, then some of the tents best suited to American conditions here and there.

Colorado is my native state. For many years in these pages have I written for you, and now may I not write once for myself, and of my native hills? Not in cheap boosting—we are all coming to detest that hack term of the dog-inthe-manger vacant real estate gambler—nor again as a knocker, who sees nothing but better fishing farther up the creek, and better hunting on the other side of the mountain—just as long ago I learned, by much experience as a newspaper man, to avoid as the plague anything seared with the word “reform.”

The pickering frog, with his picolo notes, Is singing beside the upturned boats Of the mottled swamp cabbages that appear Whenever they think the spring is near. And the crows they caw, And the bluebirds sing, But the pickering frog picks a higher string, Clearest and purest, without a flaw—Pearls of sound strung on highest C, And heard above all of spring’s minstrelsy.

For many years certain simple lures have been used to entice the speckled beauties from their hiding places when bait and artificial flies proved unavailing. Proba bly spinners were first employed, losing size with the passing of the years until today they can be had small enough and light enough to cast well with the daintiest fly-rod, and meet the whims of the most fastidious angler.

Any grouping, or classification of fishes holds in itself both practical and sentimental value. In the rudimentary stage of the angler’s development the catching of the fish seems to entirely hold his attention riveted, and the fact that there is call at all times in trout fishing for shrewdness, cautiousness and real, true skill offsets the fact that he spends little time in studying the nature of the fish itself, or in acquiring the faculty of distinguishing one specie, or species, from another.

For several years I have been trying to get my brother Charley to discard his bait rod for a fly rod, but he has always been skeptical regarding stories I told of the big ones, and the sport of getting them on a light tackle. So when I received word he was coming to spend part of his vacation with me, and wanted to see me land a 16-inch rainbow, I got busy and rigged up for a two days’ trip to my favorite stream, the Hunting River.

F. canvas which I used to roof my shack, and the sparks from the stove pipe burned holes in it that a dog could be thrown through.

I went to British Columbia early in April last year with Ashcroft as my destination.

At the end of the stage line I hired a trapper and we went another hundred miles northeast to Barkerville, an old mining camp.

Last fall the deer were not as plentiful on my range as in previous years, owing chiefly to increased number of hunters in this locality during the past few seasons. So instead of hiking to the store for a brand-new automatic, a faster pump or a machine gun, to take the place of old “Meat-in-the-Pot,” I reasoned backwards and decided to give the deer a chance to increase and at the same time get my share of venison.

In the April number, Mr. Geo. A. Greenwood of North Fork, Calif., asks some advice about shooting a shot-gun with both eyes open, which was answered by the editor;, but I notice that the editor failed to touch the subject of either rifle or revolver shooting.

In reading J. E. H.’s attack on Mr. Haines and the model ’99 Savage rifles, I do not see upon what grounds he bases his remarks. As to the safety, I know where there is a .303 Savage that is one of the first I ever saw, and that has been in use for over ten years.

I am think of getting myself a Fred Adolph three-barrel gun —two-barrel, 20-grain shotgun, and one barrel .40 Newton Express rifle—26-inch barrel and eight pounds weight. What do you think of such “dam-fool-dude-doings,” anyway?

Having noticed in Outdoor Life the remarks on Mr. Chester’s attempt to make revolver bullets mushroom by splitting the points, I thought the enclosed might interest you. The bullets were shot under the same identical conditions, at about five yards, and from the same revolver.

I was especially interested in G. L. Chester’s letter on “Interesting Experiments With Revolver Ammunition,” and am surprised to find that making saw cuts in the points of revolver bullets had no effect in causing the bullets to mushroom or expand when fired into soft material.

Suggests Adding a Heavier Bullet For The .250-3000 Savage

Editor Outdoor Life
After many months of waiting we have with us the .2503000 Savage. In the same class with the .35 Remington and the .33 Winchester as regards power, if muzzle energy be the measure of power, and with the added advantages of extreme high velocity and low trajectory, and a very convenient and beautiful arm, many riflemen will find it near their ideal for such game as deer and black or brown bear.

Just after reading the article in the Arms and Ammunition department written by J. H. Wehrend of Okotoko, Alberta, Canada, in which he expresses a desire for a new .20-caliber rifle, center fire, smokeless, jacketed bullet, l met a boy who had picked up on the street a cartridge answering his description of the one he wished, except that the cartridge was rimless.

I want to congratulate you on your article on “National Defense.’’ It is quite easy and mighty popular to shout “Lexington,” “Bunker Hill,” and “nation of riflemen,” but it takes a little courage to tell the average American what his shortcomings are in a military way.

Having had an experience similar to the one related by M. P. Dunham in your April number, I very readily believe that such is possible. Desiring my wife to become better acquainted with fire arms, I persuaded her to do a little target practice with a .38 revolver.

I wish to purchase a rifle to be used on deer and bear and would like your advice as to what is the best rifle adapted to that game, either in the Remington, Winchester, Marlin or Savage make of .30, .32 or .35 calibers, or .303 Savage. I want a takedown and pump action and prefer a hammerless gun if I can get it.
