WlLBORN J. DEASON
A SPLENDID hunting and conservation story, unique in that both camera and rifle shooting were practiced on the same trip. Dr. Deason and his companions, outfitting at Whitehorse, trekked northward many days, into the game fields of the White River country, and there obtained a goodly bag of beautiful trophies, as well as making good use of the “still” and moving picture cameras with which they were equipped.

CYRUS THOMPSON
FOR the past seventeen years our March number has invariably contained a big-game hunting story by that grand old sportsman, Cyrus Thompson, now in his 82nd year. Again, with his son, he has invaded the mooselands of New Brunswick, where he tramped the wilderness trails with a zest and vigor that would put many a younger man to shame.

Flambeau fishing has for many years been synonymous for the ultimate in vacation desires of the dyed-in-the-wool disciple of Izaak Walton. Retaining even today the romance of the old Indian days, this being a part of the Indian Reservation, it offers as do few other portions of our country, conditions of wilderness life as they were a decade ago, yet readily accessible and “developed” in a sufficient degree to satisfy the creature needs of the vacation man and his whole family.

Carroll D. Bush
IN OUR western rivers the salmon run upstream to spawn—on and up to the gravel beds of the smaller upper streams, or until they are stopped by some obstruction. They beat their way up the swift rapids, jump small falls and flounder thru the shallow riffles until, weak and battered, they are covered with bruises and sores.

ACCORDING to my philosophy of life, every man and woman should apply themselves diligenti for eleven months of the year, then play one month, that they may be healthy and happy. Francis W. On March 28th, accompanied by my son, Francis W. Graham, I started for Big Island on the Mississippi River, to fish and hunt wild gobblers for a week with J. A. Jones, who worked for some years on my father's ranch near Muskogee, and one of the best hunters, and surest shots, I have ever known.

"WE’RE OFF,” was the shout from four ever hopeful hunters as we drew away from the front of the Main Street dry goods store where Fred had rushed in to buy a pair of hip boots. I noticed from the car the very cordial farewell given Fred by the proprietor of the store (such as one often sees behind the counter of a pawn shop) when Fred hurried out with the wrapped-up boots under his arm.

We hoped to be able to make the 50 miles down the river to the Skwentna Road House in the day. We pushed off from the landing at 8 a. m., saying good-bye to Ben and Jack Lean with many regrets.

WHAT are to save the sportsmen the great of sport the United of duck States hunting? going What can they do immediately that will keep the present supply of ducks? Some shooters will state that migratory bird refuges is the answer to the question; that with sanctuaries scattered over all the country there will be no danger of wiping out the waterfowl or diminishing their numbers to any great extent.

THE northern and eastern coast of New Zealand has long been known as a place of superabundant fish. Captain Cook one hundred and fifty years ago noted the exceeding abundance of fish of many edible and indeed delicious kinds in these seas, where the numerous large Maori villages on the coast were a testimony to the presence of lavish food supmony presence supplies.

THEY talk about their trips to Africa—or their big game fish of the ocean. Or they tell of the big ones they lost on the White or the Nipigon—or of the Kadiak from the Alaskan coast. Gosh ! How it does thrill us stay-at-homes ! But I’ll wager that never a one of those lucky chaps gets any more thrill out of all their travels to far fishing and hunting fields than one of us derives from the advertising sections of the sporting magazines or from the sporting goods catalogs.

TIME was, I remember, when the old grassland streams were crystal clear and so full of fish that it was only a case of tossing a baited hook into the water and hauling it out with a fish. Any old yellow grasshopper—or brown one, just as the case might be—or a frog, minnow, worm, chunk of red meat, or most any handy bug, was the only bait needed.

O. W. Smith
TO THE careless observer and angler the brown is quite similar to the eastern brook in likes and dislikes, tho anyone who has made a study of the two fish will tell you they are utterly different. I have come to believe that I can distinguish a brown from the manner in which it strikes at a fly on the surface, or takes a worm on the bottom; I know it fights differently from the brook or rainbow.

The fishing bug gets in our head— We grab our trusty spade And rustle up an empty can, And in the back-yard glade We grub around and throw up dirt, And door knobs, glass and brick, In nervous haste to get some bait, And beat it to the “crick.” We sprain our ankle, back and flues, And blister up our mitts, And wilt our collar, shirt and socks, And froth and growl—have fits, And tear out craters in the sod, And pile up dirt “for fair,” And find a couple scrawny worms, And sob and rend our hair.

If you can get hold of an English pheasant you will find some very worth while feathers, browns and greens; in fact, one can produce some wonderfully attractive and taking flies with nothing but a pheasant to work with.

If you go down the west coast of Florida from Sarasota to Fort Meyers you are bound, sooner or later, to hear somebody mention Casey’s Pass. Then, if it pleases you to inquire where or what Casey's Pass is, you will be stared at rather pityingly and told that Casey’s Pass is the best tarpon fishing ground in Florida if not in the whole country.

Lane Silverton
“FIVE days nearer between Florida and the Central West” is perhaps the chief feature of the Florida Midwest Highway. Distance and surface conditions are primary considerations when planning a trip. Essentially the road to Florida will interest most people, not so much from the standpoint of scenery and camping conditions en route, but as a good roadway over which the traveler may quickly reach his goal, as the tour is usually made late in the fall or early winter and a quick transition from the colder to the warmer clime is essential.

People are apt to be careless in the care of the car battery on a long tour, not adding distilled water when it is needed and not cutting off the charge on the road when making a long drive. Some cars automatically take care of this so that when running at a certain speed the charging current is full and at a higher speed it turns back to a lower charging rate so that there is little danger of burning out the battery.

To Prevent Freezing of Radiator

C. P. F.
Radiator covers to control the amount of cold air rush thru the openings of the radiator in winter weather is a decided help in preventing freezing; the use of alcohol mixtures with the water is safest; a good stunt which will prevent freezing in cold weather is to reverse the motion of the fan by crossing the belt that runs the radiator fan, thus forcing the warm air from the engine thru the radiator.

It is refreshing to note the interest that we Americans are taking in skiing instead of hugging the fire on winter days. It is an ideal sport and has been popularized largely by the manufacture, in this country, of proper ski equipment. A type of ski used by many championship jumpers, and which has been used by Anders Haugen in attaining two of his world’s record ski jumps, is shown in the illustration.

The facts which confront us are that we have less birds to shoot and a greater number of hunters to shoot these birds. When we are informed with pomp and alleged deliberation, said to be necessary to ascertain the exact conditions, that our water birds are increasing, it is time to act and act quickly, particularly when this statement is made the basis for no action looking to bag limit reductions.

My 5-months-old Scottish terrier becomes constipated very quickly. I noticed him drag his rectum along the ground after stool and I wonder if worms could cause constipation. I wormed him two weeks ago and he had very few of them. He looks very well and seems to feel fine, hut I cannot understand what causes his bowels to become dry.
