Moose Hunting in Northwestern Quebec
A Southwestern sportsman and his friend visit a Northeastern game field and secure, in addition to some tough wind and water experiences, a prodigious moose of wonderful horn palmation
[no value]
[no value]
Dr. R. Fred Pettit
"TRY Northwestern Quebec,” said Cyrus Thompson, that youth of 76 years, who is one of our best known big game hunters, when I wrote him about the fall hunt for 1920; and that explains how I became interested in hunting in that far-away northland after the biggest game on this continent.

Your Roadside Home—the Tent
Our autocamping editor discusses some motor touring tents of known value, and flashes some instructive sidelights on how to equip for a motor-camping trip

F. E. Brimmer
IN nine cases out of ten, when planning to autocamp without a trailer outfit, the first adventure is deciding upon your tent. This chapter might well be divided into two parts: one dealing with the many good tents not primarily made for autocamping, but that may be converted to the new faith, while the other part would deal with the true auto-tent.

IN times past a story for Outdoor Life was considered a routine part of our annual camping trip, but that was before the late difference of opinion with Bill, the Kaiser. That little argument made a change in the habits of a lot of us—and the writer is a builder of ships.

One of the gamiest fishes of our inland waters, the small-mouth bass; some remarks as to its habits and how it is captured

Robert Page Lincoln
TO say that the small-mouth bass is one of the gamiest fishes that is known to our inland fresh waters is to advance a claim that is well nigh irrefutable; it is a pre-dominating fact unassailable in the light of modern piscatorial research and investigation.

O.W. SMITH
PERHAPS we are not paying enough attention these days to terminal tackle—leaders, sinkers, hooks. After all, all depends upon the hook; it holds the fish if well made and dependable; if not, tho rod, reel and line are of the best, the quarry escapes.

Do we catch game fish in the Hawaiian Islands? I’ll say we do. The fish shown in the picture is called the ulua, and as far as I know has no prototype anywhere else. He is one of those fellows who is always on the lookout for his "chow," as they say here.

The Dry-Fly In America
A series of papers having to do with a subject of increasing interest to every trout fisherman
[no value]
[no value]
O. W. Smith
THAT the dry-fly has come to stay and is bound to increase in poularity. every fly-fisherman and observer of angling tendencies is quick to admit. The reason therefor is not far to seek. The dry-fly appeals to the intelligent angler because its use presupposes not a little skill with the light rod, knowledge of trout and their ways, stream entomology and a certain finesse and innate adeptness without which the method—any method as for that—will fail.

THE following little piscatorial screed is going to be made up of little incidents that have happened to me from time to time along lake or stream. Things which might have been avoided, and by so doing would no doubt have saved me quite a bit of annoyance as well as some money; for, as you well know, it takes a little of the coin to buy fishing tackle.

FUNNY FELLER
There's a durned old snag In a bully good hole, Where I lost my hooks And I broke my pole. But there's trout in there, And they're pretty good size, And you have to use bait, For they won't bite flies. And when you cast in And you see your line lag, It's a hundred to one That you've got that snag.

Capt. Chas. Askins
E. M. Sweeley
WHILE discussing chokes, some mention was made of shot pressures and their relation to choke action. By shot pressures is meant the lateral force developed as a result of the thrust of the powder against the base of the shot column. This is the force, which if not neutralized causes the shot cylinder to separate when it is released from the barrel, and the greater the force developed the greater will be the spread of the shot.

THE writer confesses to being one of those interested in the experimental side of the shooting game. Some care but little for anything but off-hand shooting or where personal skill plays a large part in deciding results, but I get as much or more satisfaction in trying to find out what a gun will do with different loads when the personal element is eliminated as far as possible.

ALL men are muzzle-loaders. This is just one of those facts in gun lore that are so obvious that they are usually overlooked. Why have I mentioned it here, and in this way? Just to center the sights of your attention of other facts about a gun that are equally apparent and also transparent that they are so seldom observed, altho constantly looked at by every powder burner.

Editor Outdoor Life:—As a sportsman and reader of Outdoor Life I want to make a few statements in regard to the Ross straight pull, bolt action rifle. I have read several articles in different outdoor magazines that stated that the Ross rifle was dangerous, due to the fact that the rifle could be fired before the bolt was fully closed.

Most fox ranches are located in the Eastern Canadian provinces, yet during the past few years a good many are engaging in the business in the New England states, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Among the more common and plentiful types of fur-bearing animals, the mink is the most valuable. Tho he is a tiny animal, with a body about a foot long, his pelt brings a handsome sum. Being wily and cunning, and quick to detect the scent of a human trail, he must be hunted cautiously; but once his habits and instincts are well known, there is no great difficulty in outwitting and capturing him.

Do mountain lions scream or not? Seems to be an open question, in spite of all that we have had in the way of published letters from experienced men to prove that they do. It seems to me that where two reliable men testify on this point, and one of them says that he has never heard a lion scream, and the other that he has, we may grant that both tell the truth, and that the lion does scream.

Editor Outdoor Life:—The awarding of prizes by angling clubs each season to the member taking the largest game fish of different kinds is for the purpose of stimulating the sport and creating interest and enthusiasm in fishing. Usually the contestants are compelled to adhere to certain tackle specifications and rules of the club.

Backward, turn backward, oh time in your flight; please make 'em bite again just for tonight. I've sat on this boulder for sixteen long hours, and baited with crawfish and doughballs and flowers, and minnows and rye bread and liver and bees, and grasshoppers, fishworms and limburger cheese.

CHARLES BONESTEEL
I LOVE the giant hills towering, timber-crested, mile on mile. I love to top the high point where all is silent, and the hills look blue, and to feast the eye on their rugged beauty. Amid such surroundings I have a feeling of great content. I love the long hike, with no instrument of torture or conquest, neither gun nor fishhook in my kit, with but the companionship of fin, feather, fur and flower, and to watch the buzzard flying in the distance, as he majestically sails and sails, now up, now down, with seldom a movement of the great wings.

Editor Outdoor Life:—For about thirty years I have been angling for the finny beauties of the Gunnison River and its tributaries in Colorado, and for the past twelve or fifteen years I notice that the trout are not as numerous or as large as in the past, and if something is not done for the protection and hatching of the wily beauties, the streams will soon be depleted.

Editor Outdoor Life:—Good authority teaches us that birds of the same species are more brightly colored under a clear atmosphere than when living near the coast or on islands; Wollaston is convinced residence near the sea affects also the color of the insects.

Recently Mr. George A. Lawyer, Chief United States Game Warden, told the writer that investigations made by the Bureau of Biological Survey showed that the sales of hunting licenses had increased in almost every state in the Union. Mr. Lawyer stated further that the data gathered would easily prove that the sale of hunting licenses over the entire country had increased 15 per cent in 1920 over 1919.

Autocamping Editor:—We have done considerable roadside camping for the past three seasons and have everything pretty well systematized with the exception of cooking and eating utensils. Thus far we have been using kitchen utensils, which is not very satisfactory, because they do not pack well and are not of nesting sizes.

I have noticed your references to what you call "fire" in running and coursing dogs. I presume this means a burst of speed. Please advise me what to feed to get this result. Can you give me a prescription which will put what you call "fire" into a greyhound?—H. R., Las Vegas, N. M. Answer.—The laws of physiological chemistry are too well defined to debate what will give fire and endurance in a dog.

PETE CARNEY
In all of the state shooting tournaments the professionals had a chance to bask in the glory last year. Their scores as a rule did not come up to the amateurs. In the handicap events the winners were mainly back of 20 yards, which again knocks spots into the time-worn idea that a man is beaten when he shoots from beyond 20 yards.

In the November issue of your valuable publication, on page 366, I notice an article headed “A Plea for Our Snakes.” This is an interesting article to me, and I have seen similar mention made of “harmless snakes.” I am of the opinion that a really harmless snake has to be a very small one.
