LES’H GO!

"LES’H Go!" These were the words of Billy Fan, guide extraordinary, which started the pack train moving into the big-game mountains of British Columbia on one of those trips which is the ambition and dream of every sportsman. The wild country, an efficient outfit, guides that were unbeatable, and a bag of game which was ideal in variety and size of specimens, all combined to make this one of the most ideal hunting trips one can imagine.

F. H. Carpenter
HAVING always been an ardent lover of the great outdoors I had entertained the wish for many years that I might some time take a trip into the Northern game fields of either Alaska or Canada. After having read with much interest the accounts of others who had taken such trips this desire was further intensified, as was that of my friend, Dr. H. P. Brandenburg of Denver; so we got together on the proposition and after a brief correspondence with Donald Phillips, guide and outfitter of Jasper, Alaska, a hunting trip was arranged for the fall of 1924.

When freedom's starry banner first Its gleaming folds displayed, They were not marred by spot or stain By sin or avarice made. The hands that lifted them on high Were clean and strong and good, They had for lasting liberty A tyrant’s will withstood.

J. Rowland Nowell
ONE of the babus called my attention to a request for a shikaree to come and kill a man-eating leopard, which was proving a scourge to a number of villages near Calcutta. This notice came out in several of the Calcutta papers. It appeared that this leopard had killed a number of men, a large number of cows and horses, and other domestic stock, and the entire neighborhood was in a state of terror.

Edward J. Dierks
IN THE May, 1921, issue of an Eastern sporting magazine under the title of “Pinch Hitting for Fontinalis,” appeared a most delightful dissertation dealing with the brown trout, (Salmo fario), as a substitute for the fast-disappearing Salvelinus fontinalis.

Dr. Will Chase
OWING to many unwarranted tales which have been circulated, generally by people who have never even seen an Alaskan brown bear in his native element, a fear born of prejudice has developed against this most interesting and absolutely harmless animal.

SOMETIMES dreams come true. I often wished and dreamed of the day when I could get my fishing lines all tangled and broken with real fish, and when I could be real worn out from catching fish. I had heard of these things, but you know that all we read or hear is not true, so I was one who always had a doubt.

COLD-MAKER has come again to the Pikuni. His partner, Snow-Maker, is with him. They came from the Far North country and they are great cowards. They visit the Pikuni each year, for they know that these Indian children fear them greatly. Cold-Maker and Snow-Maker shake hands with each other and laugh, as they hover over the Great Mountains.

Everything points to a record in tourist visitation of Colorado this year. Which I am exceedingly glad to note as it cuts a very large melon two ways: one part to Colorado in the way of money spent here; much the larger part to the tourists in the way of recreational delights and benefits that can be duplicated nowhere else on God’s footstool.

"THE tip of Pikes Peak." So ran the electric word back along the dusty wagon train, and nothing other than the words “Injuns” could have stirred greater excitement. “Pikes Peak or Bust,” the motto of the Rockies, after weary, weary miles stretching on back over the edge of the world to the Big Muddy, was done.

PLEASURES were not so varied and numerous in the early days of the west as to become a drag on the settlers’ time or to deplete their pocketbooks to any great extent; in fact I suppose that the children-ofnow would turn up their dainty three-generations-removed noses at what we considered plenty fine in the pleasure line in those days. The county fair always drew a crowd because it was a local show and everybody had a hand in it either as an exhibitor or in some managerial capacity.

Some days you go huntin’—can’t find nuthin’ ’Cept a lot o’ grief like rain an mud; Ducks an’ birds ain’t ramblin’, fish ain’t bitin’, Whole durn shootin' match looks like a dud! Dawgs gits tired an then discouraged, Go to loafin’—can’t blame ’em a bit— Y’ feel like chuckin’ things an beatin’ it, But sump’n’ says, “Aw shucks, go on— don’t quit!”

PERHAPS no single angling topic is of greater interest than the weather; forever it is discussed on stream and lake, in camp and home. We have heard from time immemorial that “fish bite best when it rains,” which is true when it is, and only then.

II.-AMP;AMP;EMDASH;SOME EXPERIENCES WITH LEADERS.

O. W. S.
JUNE 1. It is exceedingly doubtful if there is another item as important in the flyman’s equipment as his leader. Today I will not even except the artificial flies themselves, or the rod, important as both are. Granted a perfectly acting rod, a line that casts without a fault and flies as near like the natural insects as it is possible to make them, what does it avail if the strand of gut connecting them with the rest of the outfit is too frail or too large or too anything? I have been having some experiences the past week that have led me to record the above observations.

IT HAPPENED in Grand County, Colorado, near Tabernash. Jim Welsh and I had gone there on a short fishing trip. We had tramped miles up and down the Frasier, the Colorado, and a half dozen smaller streams. After five days of it we were still eating bacon—while our mouths watered for fish.

IN 1895 Seattle was just beginning to dream of connecting Lakes Union and Washington with Puget Sound by ship canal. Today the dream is a reality. In the old days a good sized creek ran from Lake Union out to salt water. I fished this creek and it was also fished by an old Scotch fly fisherman who was as clean a sportsman as I ever knew.

Hail to you. Thanks to the powers that be, there are some who will stand forth flatfooted and tell the world at large how to save the little fishes. But your prayers were answered (partly) before they were uttered. There are manufacturers who have gotten away from the trebles and the gangs and are making lures with one hook only.

Here’s a good sized chunk of gameness that speaks well for the lakes of Northern Wisconsin. According to Mrs. F. J. Keating of Chicago catching a fightin’, scrappy, 46-pound “muskie” is an everyday occurrence. All that’s necessary is good tackle, a dependable reel, and a strong heart to stand up under the strain when that bolt of silvered lightning strikes.

To the southwest of Miami stretch the reefs, great coral formations that are 20 to 60 feet under water on the average. Occasional shallow places where the coral is even closer to the top are seen. Then there are stretches that are studded with niggerheads that would be fatal to strike with a fishing launch.

Marlin Swordfish

W. B. H.
Every year several Marlin swordfish are brought into Miami that are caught in front of the town in the ocean, where the shallow reefs end and the deep reefs are far out of sight under the water. These Marlins are very similar in appearance to the sailfish, the main points of difference being a short dorsal fin, shaped like a shark fin, and much longer side fins that show violet colored in the water when the fish is back of the bait.

F. N. Hahn, guide, holding a permit, killed at Long Key, Florida, in March, 1925, by A. F. Meisselbach. This specimen weighed 24 pounds 13 ounces, and is the largest ever taken among the Florida Keys. The permit is a great fighting fish, going sometimes 900 feet at a rush.

W. B. H.
When I first went to Florida for big-game fishing the kingfish, or king mackerel, was very plentiful. At Miami there were two kingfish grounds used by the market fishermen. The north grounds was close at hand. You went out to the ocean thru the government cut, and just to the north, out toward the outer reef, could be seen the circling boats of the kingfish fleet.

Several times I have fought a 7-foot sailfish in the path of oncoming steamers. The big vessels come along going south to Mexico and elsewhere, “trimming the reefs” as it is called, for by standing in close over the deep reefs they avoid the full force of the Gulf Stream.

Rough Sea Fishing

W. B. H.
It is hard work to fish on the ocean. On a rough day every muscle of your body seems to have to fight the motion of the boat on the heavy sea. The fish, too, are powerful and wearying on the arms; it is a game for the well and strong. I remember one old gentleman who used to fish out of Palm Beach, who never used to fight a kingfish or amber-jack.

OF ALL the scenic objectives of our nation Yellowstone Park stands pre-eminent. It is not only our largest national park, but its allurements are without a counterpart in this wide world. Its geyser basins, boiling springs, gorgeous Grand Canyon, petrified forests, mud volcanoes, great lakes, trout-haunted streams and exquisite falls are so located as to be easily reached on the well-known circuit tour which the National Park Service has made accessible by wonderful roadways.

A NEW transcontinental highway called the Columbia Highway is to follow the routes of the Old Oregon Trail, the Denver-Lincoln-Omaha Highway and the White Way Highway. These are all highways of good gradients and well surfaced and will enable the eastern auto tourist to see the best of the Rockies around Denver and follow the Old Oregon Trail, made historic by “Covered Wagon” Trails, and see the famed Columbia River before culminating the tour in the entrancing scenic region of the Pacific Northwest.

No item of equipment for outdoor users has had so rapid an adoption nor yet gets its host of new enthusiasts each year as the outboard motor. This type of boat propulsion owes its popularity principally to the fact that it is light in weight and yet supplies just the power needed for general outdoor uses and without an extravagant expenditure of money.

Concerning Single Shot Rifles

Ashley A. Haines
JUST a few remarks, please, concerning Mr. Durkee’s experience with the .32-40 single shot rifle, a Winchester, I believe, judging from statements made in his article. I have owned and used many Winchester single shot rifles in calibers ranging from the .22 short rim-fire up to the .40-90 single shot cartridge, and between these, quite a number of these rifles were for the .30-40, or Krag cartridge and not in a single instance have any of these rifles behaved as he mentions, nor have I ever heard of another afflicted as he says his was, from which I feel inclined to conclude his was a very exceptional experience.

SOME time ago I read in one of our sporting magazines where a man asked this question: “How much green birch will the .250-3000 penetrate?” They answered him saying, “We have never tried out the .250 for penetration but we would guess it at about 10 inches.”

H. G. S.
Many of our friends seem anxious to know what effect high-speed, light-weight bullets have on game. I have never killed big game with anything but .30-40 Krag and .280 Ross rifles. One deer hit in the backbone with a 145-grain .280 Ross bullet fell in his tracks, never got up but lived until I shot him twice in the forehead with a .22 target pistol, long rifle lead bullet at about 10 or 15 yards.

I NOTICE that under the heading Director of Civilian Marksmanship, American Rifleman, the director states: We are informed by Rock Island Arsenal that they have about 1,600 carbines still on hand. These carbines are not new, but have been found by the Arsenal to be suitable for ordinary target practice and for hunting purposes.

Too Many Cartridges

J. V. K. Wagar
YES, there are too many cartridges, and, I suppose, have been too many ever since our immediate ancestors stopped using muzble-loaders. The idea isn’t mine, so I can’t claim any originality for it, and I rather doubt if those who have contributed to Outdoor Life, under the heading of ‘‘Too Many Calibers,” really started it.

I have just read M. Lammon’s article on a new .22-caliber cartridge. I can’t see why he should choose .25 Stevens necked down. Why not the old .22 W. C. F.? It is a gun that any man can shoot with interest. Can also load his own ammunition to about the power he wants.

FOR six months I have thought I would write something comparing the revolver with the automatic pistol. It may help someone in his troubles and keep him from having to learn from experience like I have done. I do not expect old six-gun men like Mr. Thomas and Mr. Haines to agree with me on all I have to say, so please don’t anybody get mad if I happen to say something you don’t like about your favorite shooting iron.

IT SEEMS that about all the well known writers on firearms have jumped upon the high-speed bullet; some making statements that these bullets would not do much but penetrate a very few inches under the skin of an animal and make a jelly-like wound about the size of one’s fist and allowing said animals to escape to die a lingering death.

I was exposed to the gun crank germ quite a number of years ago, let’s see, I think it was about the time the shooters and riflemen were cussing and discussing the vented muzzle and the then new high-power small bore guns. From that time on I read as much as I could and experimented some until I one day got married.

For the 9.5 Mannlicher-Schoenauer, take-down rifle, with 271-grain bullet, there is claimed 2,600 feet velocity and 4,200 pounds energy, with only pounds weight of rifle. To me this is very interesting as a “paper” claim, but are there any features which may serve to discount these admittedly attractive qualities?

I do not remember the precise date when “Monarch,” the big fellow who formed an attraction in Golden Gate Park for so many years, was captured, but I have a recollection that it was somewhere around ’94 or ’95.

How can true American people be so selfish toward the elk just for the financial interest of some coldhearted stockmen who cannot stand to see an elk or some other wild beast eat a few blades of God's green grass.

I am not trying to get in an argument nor am I posing as an authority on game, but I have spent most of my time since 1905 in Aberta and Saskatchewan and have had a good chance to study the wild life. The first few years the prairie grass and small brush growth was very rank and gave the ducks good cover to nest in and the crows were not so thick as at present, but as the land was broken up and pastured the crows have increased in number until I don’t believe one duck out of five ever hatches her eggs.

Regarding your inquiry in April Outdoor Life regarding Russian borzoi running by scent, will say that I’ve bred, trained and hunted with them since 1913 and find that they are not very keen on picking up and working out a cold trail, tho they can easily tell whether Mr. Wolf or Coyote has been in any given spot within 12 or 14 hours.

Having noticed in Outdoor Life that a Denver druggist has Burrough & Wellcome hypodermic tablets of permanganate of potash, I have written to him for a tube of same. Should these be used in same way as a solution made from the crystals? That is, injected deep into and around the fang holes after cutting holes open.
