Puget Sound, that grand inland sea touching cities in the state of Washington and in British Columbia, has often been described as the Mediterranean of the North American continent. It is small on the map but is unendingly big in reality. And cruising in Puget Sound, one might as well keep right on to—Alaska!

Africa and Alaska are outstanding as the last refuge of big-game animals in great numbers. East Africa offers probably the best field in the world today, not only on account of the numbers, but also the varieties of game and the organizations now perfected for hunting there under experienced guidance.

Life to the tourist is apt to become monotonous if it is not spiced with variety. But gazing upon similar hills or mountains day after day from a road which seems to have no change is a disadvantage faced by motorists. When such is the case, find a place set off from the main highway and go there.

Usually the idea prevails that for good moose hunting one has to make an exceedingly long trip by rail and then over rough country for a long distance. Yet, a great moose hunting ground is within convenient reach of the northwestern part of the United States.

No season of the year offers better opportunities to anglers for taking large muskies than the fall. Even after the first frosts the big water tigers are active and respond amazingly well to the art of the bait caster and the fisherman who loves to troll with his pet spoon or wooden lure.

A Moose Fight in Alaska
TWO GIANTS BATTLE FOR LEADERSHIP OF THE HERD

Wm. Douglas Burden
AFTER hunting moose for six and seven autumns in the Canadia bush where antlers with a 50-inch spread make an excellent trophy and where a fight between two bull moose is one of the most extraordinary spectacles a man can witness, my feelings may well be imagined when I found myself in the heart of the rutting grounds of the giant moose of the Kenai Peninsula.

THE greatest upland game shooting in the world is quail shooting. Yes, the greatest. You grouse shooters, fewer in number than we quail enthusthereby presenting a larger if swifter target, but most daily bag limits allow but two or three grouse, while the quail shooter has ten or twelve birds to kill before the law says stop.

THERE is an increasing army of American sportsmen that take the field annually. Some statisticians place the figures at between 7,500,000 and 10,000,000 fishermen and hunters. The population is increasing, wealth is being accumulated rapidly and people have more means and leisure for indulging in their favorite recreations.

THE editor of Outdoor Life, in all his many years of campaigning, has never advocated any radical or unreasonable bear laws. Prohibiting the killing of cub bears, perhaps putting the ban on killing she bears with cubs in localities where their numbers are depleted, reasonable bag limits and open seasons, and some allied points according to the local necessities, are all that he has ever advocated.

OUR work here in India is such that, tho much of our time is spent at a hill station in the Khasi-Jaintia Hills, Assam, a certain amount of traveling about is necessary. In this manner my boss, who I'll call "C. P.", and I are able to combine business and pleasure with the result that whenever we are in territory where shooting is to be had, we generally get a taste of it.

CERTAINLY you don't believe me. None of you Easterners do.

THE foreign trade in furs and skins between the United States and other parts of the world averages about $100,000,000 per year.

"Musquash" is the Cree Indian name for the little animal that the Pale Face terms "muskrat," so-called because of the musky odor which it emits.

One is the disease which suddenly cuts down the grouse in the northern part of their range after a season of maximum abundance.

Sheridan R. Jones
IN BRINGING this chapter to a close a chapter covering the more important cat from the point of view of the angler, we have decided to add a few suggestions relative to the proper catfish rigs for the several types of fishing. Often we have made our treatment too general, forgetful of the fact that the rank and file of fishermen are more or less unfamiliar with exact detail and, therefore, unable to rig their lines in a manner that will be productive of results.

ACCORDING to my watch, it is now 10:56 a. m., the month of October, 1927, down in Texas—where the horntoads do the black bottom, the fish swim on their bellies, and the bull frogs wear out the seat of their pants while sitting in a game of water-poker around the shore of my favorite lake.

THE accompanying cuts of our Catalina Swordfish, the marlin and the broadbill, simply give you an outline of their appearance as they land on our fishing wharf to be weighed. In the water they are entirely dissimilar in coloring and action.

Shark Swallows a Tarpon

Editor Outdoor Life
While fishing off Boca Grande, Fla., I had hooked a tarpon which the guide stated weighed in the neighborhood of 100 pounds, judging from observation while in the air several times. After having tired out the tarpon pretty well, and after bringing him within about 40 or 50 feet of the boat, the fish made a desperate struggle.

Claude P. Fordyce
IN the present-day speed mania to cover distances on the vacations of many people, the night's abode is given little consideration—just so a roof is over their heads and weatherproof walls surround them. A hotel would do. But this keeps them in the very environment that vacations are invented to take them away from.

CAN one tire of camping?" The question is often put to me and I have but one answer, with but one reservation: "Yes, unless a positive nut, and in that case his wife will tire of him—and it." Few people, I imagine, enjoy camping any more than my bunch, but camping is relaxation, recreation, a change of scene.

Making your own equipment for the different kinds of camping is an interesting handicraft and it goes a long way towards keeping the vacation expenses down to a minimum.

A reader states that his woolen hunting coat was soiled and when it came from the cleaners the dirt was all out and the waterproofing also. He waterproofed the wool by dissolving an ounce of anhydrous wool fat or lanolin in a quart of gasoline, swabbed it evenly on the coat and hung it in the air for the gas to evaporate, leaving the wool fibers coated with wool fat.

The "Ten Commandments" for safe and satisfactory winter driving are as follows: 1. Watch your battery. Have it tested often and kept charged so it won't freeze. 2. Change your oil frequently. Oil becomes diluted quickly in winter from the condensation of water inside the crank case, so don't blame the oil.

C. P. F.
When waterproofing duck, it is well to stretch it so as to secure a flat surface for the work. Generally it is best to select a warm, sunny day; the hotter the better, in fact. The canvas must be dry, never damp. When the waterproofing solution has been thoroly mixed, apply with any ordinary paint brush, spreading a uniform coating over one side of the canvas only, and be sure that every inch is covered.

FROM the best information that I can secure, about one-twelfth to one-fifteenth of the double guns built in the United States are 20-bores. This doesn't include the pump guns, and I am rather inclined to believe that more pump 20s are used than double barrels in this gauge.

An article by Mr. MacVey regarding the .32-20 as the logical choice as the general purpose rifle in the East, appeared in Outdoor Life several months ago. His article showed plenty of thought on the subject, and for the purposes stated, i. e.: for deer and down to the smallest game and vermin, the writer agrees with him in his choice of factory loaded shells.

AN INDIVIDUAL can hardly test ammunition to the same extent that a well equipped small arms plant is capable of doing. About all that he can do is to shoot it for accuracy and perhaps for penetration, and if he is very skilled he may be able to get a rough idea of its trajectory.

PISTOL shooting as practiced today can be readily divided into two distinctly different classes. One consists entirely of standardized target practice and the other includes all other kinds of shooting. Both have their loyal supporters fully equipped with plausible talking points to uphold their convictions as to the merits of the particular game in which they are interested.

Arthur W. duBray
REGARDED purely as a game of its own, the main object being to train its devotees to make long runs and reach high scores, it is very doubtful if any radical improvement can be inauguarated in trap shooting to attain the desired end. As all targets are thrown as near alike as to speed, elevation and distance, in order to place each contestant on an even keel with all those in competition, it stands to reason that the game has reached a state of quasi perfection, viewed from that standpoint, brought about by much careful thought and consideration by those under whose skillful management our tournaments are conducted.

I HAVE heard dozens of old-timers tell of their first experience of what is commonly known among amateur sportsmen and sometimes seasoned hunters, as well, buck-ague, a peculiar feeling and sensation that is hard to describe. I have heard veteran duck hunters tell of a peculiar mood and excitement that sometimes will cause the amateur duck hunter to stand motionless with a full loaded pumpgun and watch a whole flock of ducks raise and float silently away, seemingly forgetting to even attempt to take a single shot at them.

Cut twigs 2 or 3 feet long from any soft-foliaged evergreens near camp and, after selecting as level and satisfactory a spot as possible for your bed, run a row of them across the space, as you would start to shingle a house—only that, instead of beginning at the bottom, as in the shingling process, you begin at the top, of course.

I have just been reading your answer to a query relative to young snakes entering the mouth of the mother, and have also read other articles by you that seemed to cast doubt on this happening. I wish to state that 50 odd years ago, as a boy returning from swimming near where I lived in Rhode Island accompanied by other boys of my age, while among the sweet fern and white birch I saw an ordinary-sized spreading adder (local name).

ALL varieties of wild duck and teal are not nearly so cantankerous in the matter of breeding as are the tribe of wild geese. One may order any number of varieties of wild ducks and teal, now, for early March delivery, with a confident expectation of egg laying, incubation and successful raising of young birds.

SO many are writing me to inquire when the market is going to drop below profitable margin in silver foxes. For a moment, consider the millions of people in this country alone who never even have seen a silver fox garment. There are a few in store windows, and many more that are only imitations, but so many of us have not seen even that much.

THERE is general rejoicing in the English springer spaniel world, both in America and Canada, over the remarkably good work seen at the Trials by this delightful breed which antedates the majority, if not all, of the gun dogs, it being an admitted fact that the Norfolk water spaniel, from which has come the English springer, was the foundation stock from which sprang the setter and other gun dogs.

A 5 per cent solution of tannic acid_ is one of the best treatments for extensive burns. It prevents the absorption of toxic products, relieves much of the pain, and hastens cicaterization. Where a simple fracture is present, it may be easily determined by the grating of the broken bones upon each other and their displacement which allows the limb to dangle or hang helplessly.

Haven't seen much spoken of the largest and best terrier, the ariedale, the past few years. He used to command a lot of space in all outdoor magazines, as well as the daily papers, but he took a toboggan slide for other popular breeds. However, he is too good a dog to stay down and slowly he is coming back, as I note several of the old-timers and others are getting them for their real worth.

Hookworm infestation is another disease common among dogs. The life history and method of infection is similar to hookworm infestation in humans. Prenatal infection is said to occur occasionally. Symptoms: Hookworms are blood suckers and produce a marked anemia, not only from the loss of blood but also from poisons liberated by the parasites.

I have just read Kennel Queries in the July issue of Outdoor Life, in which J. W. Dykes asks for information concerning an operation to prevent a dog from barking. There can be no doubt as to its being painless and harmless, but with the "humaneness" of it I firmly disagree.
