D. S. HOPKINS
ALDO LEOPOLD
THE story of a successful hunt in Alberta, in which the writer tells of the pleasure of planning—of assembling an outfit—of the anticipation preceding the hunt; he describes the trip—the hunting grounds—the hunt. And he recounts the thrills he experienced in taking trophies—one of them a bighorn which in some respects could be considered a world’s record.

ONE of the compensations of life in North China is the nearness of great open spaces with wide expanses of plain and mountain where game, now nearly extinct in North America, still may be found in large numbers and where for a minimum expenditure in time and money wonderful sport may be found.

THE morning after we had found a doe which a cougar had recently killed we had expected to make an early start with the dogs in an effort to run down the beast, but when we were ready to leave it was pouring down rain and we decided to wait until toward lunch time, thinking it might slacken, which it did.

OUTDOOR LIFE PRIZE MEDAL

[no value]
FOR the information of those who may not know, we wish to announce the conditions under which the Outdoor Life prize will be awarded this year, which are essentially the same as in 1924. Believing that some recognition should be given to those who are devoting their time, and in many instances funds, toward the advancement of sportsmanship and the things pertaining to it, the publisher of Outdoor Life is again offering two gold medals as prizes to those who, in the opinion of the committee on awards, are the most deserving during the year 1925.

DON’T be too hard on the man with a grouch. He may have a systematic weakness that can be cured by a hunting or a fishing trip—and next year when you see him again he may be as fresh as a daisy, fully relaxed and able to open a face-full of smiles fit to melt an iceberg.

A NUMBER of years ago, so many that I don’t like to set down dates, the three of us—Wife, Kid and I—set out along the old Peshtigo River in Wisconsin on a fishing and exploring trip. It was before the dam builders had violated one of the most entrancing portions of the Badger State, and at High Falls the white ribbons hung and fluttered over the red rocks, ever changing, never gone.

THE days of August 17-22, 1925, in Denver, were epochal in the realm of sportsmanship, for they marked the beginning of great work to be done in game administration—greater even than some of the achievements of the past. During these days, three conventions of sportsmen met from all parts of the United States and Canada to exchange stories of experience in game conservation and propagation, and to formulate plans for the preservation of our game and other wild life, and for the setting aside of suitable wilderness areas which will serve as game refuges and which will act as an incentive to send more people into the open.

Did you ever hear the story told about the “Swatter Kid"? I'll proceed as if you did not, for I hardly think you did. 'Tis a tale set in the old days when the quest of gold lured men To the mountains, whence some seekers never did return again. He arrived in California from his home back East somewhere; No one here knew where he came from, and nobody seemed to care.

O. W. Smith
THERE are no fresh-water game fishes, aside from the salmon family, that have the habit of leaping on a slack line, even the eastern brook trout leaps only when forced to do so by a taut line and then its leap is nothing like the clean performance of the rainbow and salmon trout.

JUST suppose that some day you are out on a fishing trip and you accidentally, maliciously or otherwise, bust up your good right wing, the food-hook with which you learned to hurl the casting bait or seductive, fuzzy-wuzzy lure of the fly rod; what would you do?

EL COMANCHO
THIRTY years ago I went salmon trolling in Elliot Bay, which is now the crowded harbor of Seattle. Back in the ’90s there was lots of room in Seattle Harbor for battleships, wind-jammers, fishing schooners, or anything else most that would float, for not more than two or three deep sea boats got into Elliot Bay then at the same time, and salmon made it a regular port of call, along in August and September, on their way to the spawning grounds up at the headwaters of the river Duwuamish, which empties in at the head of the bay.

The Light Tackle Question
Angling Tournament Announced

WILLIAM BARBER HAYNES
HERE is the first inquiry received by the Big-Game Fishing Department and, of course, it had to be about the light tackle, heavy tackle question. This controversy has been going on for years. It is over the trivial difference of opinion as to the relative pleasure to be obtained by catching an ocean fish with a 6ounce tip and a 9-thread line, which constitutes light tackle, or any line or rod that is heavier than the aforesaid.

Learning the Rifle

Chas. Askins
ONE of the things I like to learn about my rifle before taking it on a big-game hunt is how it will react to changes in position. Once in the presence of big game we cannot do much setting of rifle sights. However, if we know where the rifle shoots from any one position and can take that position we are all right, or if we know how much it varies from its sighting, when shot from some other position, we can hold for it and still strike very close to the point we mean to hit.

IN THOSE “good old days” (?) it was a custom, along with the spring house cleaning, to have the family jewels, either the Bird or the Deckert, furbished up annually. One can just close his eyes and visualize the little backwoods gunsmithy, with the loungers standing in a worshipful attitude about Dan’l Boone, Simon Kenton, or even Lewis Wetzel, while he told of his past exploits or of new game fields he has just discovered “some’ers back yon.”

C. S. Landis
THE 20-gauge is the “.22 long rifle” of the shotguns. It is not the smallest gauge but it is by long odds the most popular and the most highly developed among the smaller sized shotguns. Because it is so popular and is made to so many variations, about anything and everything has been claimed for and against the 20-gauge shotgun.

I would like to get a little advice from you on a subject that I have never seen discussed in the columns of Outdoor Life, or elsewhere. I would like to know the most “approved” method of hunting prairie dogs. By this 1 mean the best manner of getting within range of them.

I read your article in the May number of Outdoor Life on the proposed new .22 cartridge and also a number of other articles on the need for a new .22 hunting cartridge with more power than the long rifle, so here goes for my opinion on the subject. There is certainly room for an improved .22 caliber small game cartridge, as the long rifle leaves much to be desired.

Last month we printed a number of letters giving suggestions for an improved smallgame rifle, which were received in response to an article in our May number entitled “A Magnum .22-Caliber Rifle” by Captain Askins. It is impossible to print more than a small part of the correspondence received, but we believe the following will be interesting to those who are looking for a more powerful small-game gun:

It was with a great deal of interest that I read your recent article “The Finicky .22” by J. W. Gillies. His criticism of the various rifles and actions agrees with that of the writer in nearly every particular. 1 should, however, like to carry this matter a little farther as I probably possess certain special information that is not at present generally known.

Referring to articles in May issue of Outdoor Life by F. G. Miller and “Old Timer,” regarding arms used by General Custer, would like to “horn” into the melee with a little evidence. I was reared among the Sioux Indians of Crow Creek Indian Reservation, South Dakota, and about 1899 or 1900 purchased a rifle and a few cartridges from an old widow squaw, who said her husband got it at the Custer massacre.

Tho her wardrobe was in a class with that of Eve, when she started out from Boston in June, 1921, her admirers in all parts of the globe have contributed a share toward her strange attire, until now it excites the jealousy of her many sisters wherever she goes.

Recent discoveries have disclosed the fact that underneath the great glacial deposits of Northern Alaska there exists every evidence of not only a prehistoric but a cultured civilization.

In this neighborhood I am considered a good fisherman, and I think the reason that I most always get results is because I have watched, looked and learned from the trout themselves, what they like best and their favorite haunts. Every season I stock if I can get the fry, and am always ready to do my share for one big reason: a few years ago I sent to Seattle for salmon which in due time came.

Development of Fox Ranching

The large financial returns, as evidenced by the results of the 1910 fur sales, made many anxious to get into the business of fur ranching. The publishing of these returns unsettled the equilibrium of an otherwise conservative people. The timely decision of those already engaged in the business to unload some of their stock to the clamorous prospects who were anxious to share in the huge profits, created the so-called fox boom of pre-war days.

HARDNESS and toughness are not necessarily the same. For instance, a vulturine guineafowl is very tough but is not hardy. The same is true of the crown pigeon, the comb duck, or goose as it is often called, tho I think, myself, that this bird is a sheldrake.

The first requisite of successful termination of a wild dog’s career is a pack of good coyote hounds. It matters not to me what kind, type, color or conformation the dogs are, as long as they deliver the pelts and do their duty in an efficient manner—and behave themselves when not in use.

Cure for Running Fits

Editor Outdoor Life
I would appreciate some advice in connection with an 8-monthsold police dog that is subject to what I believe to be running fits. Does a dog usually recover from this ailment or will it sometimes reoccur if the animal’s physical condition is in any way faulty?

There are many ways of starting a fight but none more certain than by springing the above question on a group of dog fanciers each of which fancies a different breed. I resort to the philosophy of an old college professor who said “If there is anything I would rather do than fight, it is to see two people do it that know how.”

I am especially interested in your Department. One of the letters regarding salmoned dogs stated that salmoning occurred from San Francisco, north. My recent experience has been in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties where only dog-salmon and steelhead run.
