In the Land of the Kadiak
A hunt for Kadiaks in the Izanback Bay region, in which one lively episode followed another in rapid succession, and ended by netting the participants thirteen beautiful big brown (Kadiak) bears.

Edison Marshall
CAMPBELL CHURCH of Eugene, Ore., had taken the brown bear of Southeastern Alaska ; his son, Campbell Jr., had killed black bear; and I had taken Canadian grizzly on the Stikine ; so it was natural and proper that we should plan a trip to Western Alaska— the far-stretching, storm-swept Alaskan Peninsula that is a fence between the Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea—after the big Kadiak, the biggest thing in the way of a bear that lives or likely ever has lived in the world, and which has the honor of being the largest carnivorous animal in the world today.

Every phase of man’s activities is modified. We have the conservative, the progressive and the radical in every walk of life and every modification of life. None of these classes are very satisfied. The conservatives are subdivided; for there are degrees of this mental attitude just as there are degrees of progressiveness and radicalism.

House-Boat Cruising Along the Gulf
Who can imagine a more glorious trip than one following the route described in this story? Passing thru territory replete with fish and game, fruits and nuts, it is a realization of the dreams of all sportsmen who visit it.

Joseph W. Stray
A JOURNEY from New Orleans to Key West by motor house-boat is a trip to be remembered as long as life lasts. The cruising house-boat is usually a spacious craft with good accommodations for tourists, a captain of experience, a competent crew, an engine room in which fine internal combustion engines are installed and a cozy protected pilot-house.

Chas. H. Baxter
THE season of 1922 was one of the best that the Yukon Territory has ever had, both in regard to hunters and successful trips. There were fifteen hunters in the Territory and all went out with good bags of trophies. I was hunting with Mr. and Mrs. R. Y. Struble, and we had fine success.

A Turkey Hunt in the Mogollons
“I can't think of anything that is more sport than hunting gobblers in Arizona," was the verdict of one of the party. And then he added, “Unless it be to sit down to a feed of 'em cooked as only Frank knows how."

ONE fine morning about the middle of October, 1922, after we had put in several days on a very successful hunt after the giant black-tail deer (but that is for another story), Charlie, Bobby, the veteran hunter, Frank Johnson and I, in the parlance of my old Missouri friends, “lit out” for the Mogollons after wild turkeys.

JOHN A. McGUIRE
THE wild game of this continent is a treasure to its citizens, whether they take advantage of hunting it or not. Even those who do not hunt it should view its protection with as much interest as the farmer watches the country’s finances. The farmer doesn’t have to be a banker in order to have a care for waste in our country’s expenditures.

TO those who have dreams of some day finding and exploring a virgin gameland—and that includes every real sportsman—this story of Major Whelen’s hunt in an unexplored part of the mountains of Alberta will open new fields of thought. Every day letters are received in the office of Outdoor Life asking us to direct the writers to the place we consider the best hunting territory available today.

EL COMANCHO
NOT long ago I was with an acquaintance who had a little job of roping to do on an automobile load of camping outfit he was sending to his camp so it would be on hand when needed. He is a business man, considered by those who know him to be snappy, up to date and a live man able to do things and fend for himself, but he didn’t know the first thing about handling a rope, tying knots or how to tighten his lashings or how to “lay” them so they would pull, bind and hold his load firmly without chafing or stretching or working loose.

UNDOUBTEDLY the blue-gill is the best known of the sunfishes, being quite widely distributed thruout the eastern and central portions of the country, south to Florida and the Rio Grande. In the Mississippi Valley it is especially abundant, growing to a large size, and in proper water its flavor is unexcelled.

HAVING in the previous chapter given the results of testing an English magnum, mostly with Sweeley ammunition, in this chapter we will take up what might be termed an American magnum, but which we term a Super 12. In this instance the gun tested is a Super Fox, the only shotgun of its kind made in America at this time.

HARVEY JONES
In a recent issue of “Arms and the Man” Major Whelen recommended having the stock such as is now furnished on the Model 1922 U. S. .22 long rifle fitted to the U. S. .30-caliber Model 1903 at time of purchase, if one contemplated finishing it over into a sporting model anyhow, as complete rifle exclusive of the micrometer rear sight would then cost only about $41, where otherwise they may cost that much or even more for stock and fitting alone.

ONE of the hardest things to arrange, with as near perfect general satisfaction as is practical, pertains to handicaps. As has been stated many times, a target satisfactory for all needs is yet to be designed or invented. And much the same thing might be said of handicapping.

PROBABLY in the last half dozen years the Springfield rifle and its cartridge have been given more publicity than all other rifles and cartridges combined. I believe myself that the ’06 has reached the highest state of development of any ammunition ever built, but there are other good cartridges and other guns as well as the Springfield.

I find no little satisfaction in the knowledge that Chauncey Thomas and I agree in many things. But no matter how much you admire a man, I believe it unwise to submerge your own ego to the extent of endorsing everything he says and accepting it for the gospel.

G. H. WOODWORTH
On page 144 of your August issue I note that E. H. Osborn says in regard to the 7.62 mm. Russian rifle, “It is true that this rifle has no safety,” etc. If those owning this rifle will pull the cocking piece back about three-eighths or onehalf inch farther than the full cock position, and turn the knurled head about a quarter turn to the left, they will find that not only is the firing pin securely locked, but the bolt handle likewise is locked down, precluding any possibility of the bolt being opened.

LOADING the old muzzle-loading rifle is today almost a lost art. Unless there are a lot of mute, inglorious Miltons in the gun game, few men are alive today who seem able to get the now almost legendary accuracy from the muzzle-loader. Personally I know of but two—C. W. Rowland of Boulder, Colo., long since retired from active shooting, and Walter S. Britt of Oakland, Calif.

Do you consider the .30-40 Krag would have sufficient power for our largest game on this continent when used in the Krag army action with a new special barrel and as made by the Neider people? Please compare the .30-'06 and .30-40 Krag as to velocity, energy, effective range, also weight of bullets.

WHAT may be called the “motif of autocamping is to get outdoors for recuperation. It is well to have an objective to achieve on any trip; on the long summer tour it may be to go over long trails, to see the magnificent scenery of our national parks or forests or just to go to the mountains where it is cool; it may be to fish some lake or stream where the big ones are.

HOW often do we read or hear some sportsman say that after killing a deer, sheep or elk he cut off a few choice cuts, leaving the remainder to spoil because the weather was too warm, he was too far from home or some other equally inane excuse? Such a silly statement always raises my ire for, granting that such a sportsman is sincere in his desire to save all the meat, I cannot understand why he does not prepare himself in knowledge and skill for saving the meat just as he does in getting his game.

Very few trips outdoors are to be taken without some means of warmth in a chill spell, whether it be at night, in a storm or in high altitudes in fall or early spring and winter. A motor camping trip in the Eastern part of our country last summer during the month of August proved that this coat was indispensable.

I believe it is a scientific fact that this bird is confined to Australia, and a smaller species to the British Solomon Islands and Dutch Islands.

Too many laws are spoiling the old West now. We have a few bad ones here in Nebraska. For instance, for years it was unlawful to trap or kill beaver. This law didn’t need to be enforced here because the beaver had been cleaned out “tooth and toe nail,” and for more than twenty-five years there was not a sign of the little fur-bearer.
