LARRY O'BRIEN came into the office a few days ago. Larry came all the wav from Alaska, and it is his own story that he came to tell us about OUTDOOR LIFE. "I want to tell you," he said, "that since you took over Outdoor Recreation you're turning out the best sporting magazine in the country—and I read ’em all.

LATE in the afternoon of a steaming summer’s day in 1916 my wife and I were being rowed up the beautiful Min River in Fukien Province, south China. On the opposite shore a squalid village climbed from the water’s edge into the smothering vegetation of the mountain side.

IF," said Jack pulling on the tail of my sheep-lined coat, "you feel that you must poke your head out like a silo on a hill, at least turn in the collar of that red sweater so every duck within 10 miles won't see you." "If," I retorted from my cramped half-standing, half-kneeling position with my face between the hay bundles of our duck blind, "I had a he-man or two for poind partners instead of a set of undersized dwarfs, maybe we could have a blind deep enough that a moderately tall person could see out without tying himself into a series of knots.

WHEN you go marching thru Georgia with a quail gun on your shoulder you're bound to see some smart pointers and setters, but little did we think that those Albany boys would trot out one of those rare pointers that had not only an A. B. degree in quailcraft but also an M. A. merit badge with a few months in night school to boot.

WHEM moosky," said Andy the guide, "won't bite today. Too bright. Not 'nough wind. But we oughta ketch plenty pike." Nevertheless, we took two rods apiece with us that day, one rigged for muskies and one for pike. And I hope to die if we didn't catch the biggest musky of the season, on Papoose Lake, Vilas County, Wisconsin, on a 4-ounce rod, an ancient 12-pound test line and a bass spinner, at 12 o'clock noon of that bright sunshiny July day.

RECENTLY there has been a reawakening of interest in this bird, now extinct, but that once darkened the skies. It is hard to convey an idea of how abundant the pigeons were in former times. The present generation, unfamiljar with the sight of birds in vast quantity, can hardly comprehend.

WHERE the Napa River widens into the estuary known as the Napa Slough, which empties into a great bay, the striped bass were running, feeding among the tules. When you go angling in California for this roving, venturesome aristocrat of the salt water you are assured, if luck is with you, of thrilling sport and a rare table delicacy.

AUGUST 24 found us riding away over the hills from the little town of Mountain Park in Alberta, where an 18-inch snowstorm had held us for three days after our arrival. What a train we made— two guides skilled in riding and all the ways of the hunt, a cook and horse wrangler familiar with the trail, my husband (an enthusiastic and successful hunter), ten pack horses, and at the end of the string myself, who had never seen a head of big game in the woods and who had shot at nothing more exciting than a black spot on a piece of white paper.

FELLOWS, how would you like to find yourselves on the salt marshes among thousands of gray geese? is a rather unique and thrilling experience that my brother Lee and I had late last fall on the salt marshes of southern New Jersey. It was late in the afternoon when I called Lee, who lives not far from the salt marshes, and asked him what he thought about giving the ducks a try.

ACOLD northeast wind and rough water greeted us on July 12. It seemed the weather never would be fine again. We ran northeast for a couple of hours and then turned up the channel. There we encountered a heavy swell. If the Gladiator had not been a big, well-designed launch with plenty of power, we could not have worked thru so many days of rough sea and wind.

P. C. Davis, Calif.:–I am glad to see that you are going after the duck hogs. I hope you will keep it up, as I think such agitation, if kept up, will get results. While the conditions here in this particular locality are more favorable than in other localities in the U.S., I very well realize that it will he only a few years, if the bag limit is not reduced soon, before we or our children will get not even one duck in a day's hunt.

Spoons, Spinners and Metal Attractors
PART I

[no value]
Sheridan R. Jones
ONE of the oldest and most successful lures for game-fish is the spoon, and yet it has been our experience that fishermen quite generally are not familiar with its possibilities. In support of this belief it is but necessary to call attention to the shortage of spoons in the average kit, to the fact that spoon and spinner are words commonly employed to mean one and the same article, and to the further fact that most fishermen are not critical in their selection of this metal attractor.

Strange or Vivid Experiences Out of the Lives of Real Fishermen J. T. SHARRARD UPON one occasion while whipping up a trout stream in Northern California, I encountered another young man engaged in the same pastime. He had an old time cane pole and fished without a reel. When he got a bite he jerked like a woman ; that is, threw his line up in the air as far as it would reach, and frequently tore the hook out of the fish's mouth.

AN age ago in Montana, the flood waters had undermined a huge cottonwood– carried it along on its hurried way, until it turned crossways and lodged in a narrow neck of the river. Floods came and went, carrying other logs to the jam, until the mass rose, was solid, and turned the river abruptly to the left, making it form a new channel.

SLEEPING right still seems to be a big problem with the outdoor traveler. It is the one thing which must be settled right if one is to benefit physically as one should from any outing. Sleeping warm and in complete comfort is a simple question of insulation—of retaining the animal heat manufactured by the body.

BUILDING seems an easy a successful chore to the camp novice fire going into the woods with little experience, yet to build a fire which does the work you expect of it needs attention as to certain details. It is a criterion by which we measure at first glance the proficiency of any outdoorsman.

FIFTEEN years ago, in the eyes of the public, an archer was a strange person. This does not mean there were no archers, and the bow was a forgotten weapon of the past, but the archers were few and far between in comparison to those of the Middle Ages, or even today.

HERE is a kink I have used a great deal in cooking over an open camp fire. It permits kettles to be removed from the fire without burning your fingers and if the food is boiling too fast you can move the kettle to one side for slower heat. Drive three forked stakes into the ground so that the supported kettle will be a proper distance from the flames.

IN LIFE THE C. December G. Williams issue asks, of Will OUTDOOR the Cutts Compensator work? Captain Askins states in a previous article : “It appears logical to me that the device will do practically what is claimed for it.” The statement is ventured here, that the sole cause for this difference of opinion is due to the fact that Mr. Williams did not have access to the data and material upon which Captain Askins based his opinion.

Colonel Richard M. Cutts, U. S. Marines
THE accepted measurement of a shotgun pattern has been confirmed by years of usage as the per cent of shot present in a 30-inch circle at 40 yards. On uncompensated guns this measurement is of great use, but even here it is very misleading when the killing ability of a gun and load is to be ascertained.

ABOUT discussion twenty started years in ago the a columns very lively of OUTDOOR LIFE relative to the respective merits of lever vs. bolt action rifles, and there have been continuous upflares of the controversy ever since. It is not my intention to revive the old discussion, but I do believe that there are certain matters connected with the two types of weapons on which our readers should be better informed, and there are certain matters about the construction and use of lever action rifles for cartridges adapted to big-game shooting which are not well understood.

EDITOR, Outdoor Life:-—On the cover of your November issue the name of Edward Breck drew my attention and I turned at once to his article “Do Moose Charge ?” I found exactly what I had expected— the usual Breck “anti” everything. As an attack on the memory of one of the greatest of sportsmen—the late Colonel Theodore Roosevelt : as a personal attack on Arthur Young and Stewart Edward White —exponents of the long bow : as a criticism of the conservation policies of the State of Pennsylvania—generally conceded to be excellent: as a mess of sentimental hash and an open acknowledgment of ignorance of the subject he chooses to discuss, that article is a literary masterpiece.

IT group was a that tired sat and around more the or huge less dejected cannon stove in the hotel lobby that evening. The field trial dogs had been running all day, but for some reason birds were scarce and very little good work had been seen. “They may talk all they please about the great speed, the range and the style of a bird dog, but what counts with the galleries more than all else is a good point on game ; a point where the dog shows style, intensity, good manners and all the things that a well-broken setter or pointer should possess.” This came from one known as “The Oracle.”

OCTOBER, November and the greater part, of the month of December were filled with amateur bird dog trials. Not a section of the country but had its field meeting—some of them had four or five within a radius of 100 miles. To discuss the winners of all these events would be impossible so we shall pass along with the observation that the amateur field trial has become an institution that is interesting bird dog lovers wherever they are found.
