NO MAGAZINE in this country stands more ready to support the U. S. Bureau of Biological Survey than does OUTDOOR LIFE. The theory of this bureau is beyond reproach. It has both scientific and administrative duties in wild life conservation which make it extremely powerful and important.

THE game in Louisiana has its back to the Gulf and the new State Conservation Commission is protecting the violators in their endeavor to push the game overboard.

IT IS always pathetic to contemplate those states which have to lift their conservation policies above the mire of politics. But it is especially bitter to consider this situation in the case of a state exceptionally endowed with the natural assets requisite for leadership in conservation and propagation.

Siwashing for Goats

Geo. Wurzburger
WELL, ROSS Parmenter, my guide, and I sure “siwashed” it on my goat hunt last fall. In the parlance of the Cariboo District of British Columbia, where our hunt took place, “siwashing” means “going light and living off the country.” The Siwash Indians who inhabit the Cariboo have the ability of going into the woods without shelter or provisions, existing on game, fish, and plants, and sleeping without shelter near their camp fires at night.

FOREVER I am in love with mid-summer trout fishing. Oh, I know the appeal of spring fishing, when the new-born flowers are peeping through the brown earth, and all nature is reaching toward life. But early fishing is utterly unlike that of the high tide of the season.

FOR some time past in this and other magazines we have seen a great deal about the marvelous shooting done by Doc Carver, Wild Bill Hickok, and several others. The writer finally became enough interested to begin checking up on some of these stories, and came to the conclusion that the authors of some of these wild tales know very little of what was humanly possible.

WHAT’S that you said?” asked Henry, dropping his feet from the stove and facing me abruptly', his magazine fallen to the floor. “Oh, nothing,” I lied. “Henry, I think I’ll name this fly in your honor. Or I’ll let you name it. What d’ye say?” An embarrassed flush spread over his weather-beaten face as he came forward, took the fly, and examined it under the shaded lamp.

IF ALL the snakes of the world should convene sometime in a great reptilian council to choose from among their number the one that presents the most formidable appearance in battle, the honor would not go to the lethal viper of Africa, to the dread barba amarilla—the yellow beard—of the American tropics, to the terrible diamond-back rattler of the southern United States, or even to the cobra of India, that king of venomous serpents whose spread hood is a veritable symbol of death.

SOME of the finest game fish I have ever seen taken from the lakes and rivers I have fished were hooked and landed with live minnows. I have taken many a good bass with these lures, and for pure sport on light line and hook and snell I know of no better way of creeling a hard-fighting small-mouth bass than with this same bait.

WHILE tournament surf casting has been carried on along the Atlantic coast for twenty years or more, and for six years on the Pacific coast, it was not until Aug. 25, 1929, that there was competition between the East and the West. On that day a telegraphic team match was cast by the five best distance surf casters of the two coasts, and, as has been the case in football, tennis, and other sports, the West won.

EVERY fisherman would like to keep his rods in good shape or perhaps to make a new one occasionally, but few know how to go about it. Books do not give much information on the matter, and rod makers guard the information as trade secrets. At present there is a trend toward brown-stained rods, and you might be interested in learning how the trick is done:

MUCH talk has been wasted pro and con whether or not fish can hear sufficiently to frighten them by talking near the water. “Sshhh.

SHORT casts, when pike, bass, and musky are lying close under brush, old logs, and in the watery crevices of shore boulders, are better than long casts, I have found, for getting rises in the midday season. Accuracy is more essential when making shore casts than distance, and for this reason a No. 3 size of Idaho spoon, with a No. 1/0 size hook covered with red and white bucktail, and a quarterounce lead sinker attached 6 inches above the lure on a 9-pound test silk casting line is the ideal rig.

PUBLIC action in providing housing and dockage facilities for small boats is being demanded by motor boat owners, according to Warren Ripple, president of the Johnson Motor Company. Motoring on water is rapidly increasing in popularity, and, despite the fact that there are now over 1,400,000 owners of small motor boats in the United States, very little has been done to provide them with proper facilities.

SEVEN new world’s records for outboard boats were established May 29, 30, and 31 at Worcester, Mass., in the first big regatta of the northern boating season. In addition, five other records were set which better marks made this year by drivers racing under the 1930 rules, which call for heavier boat weights, but do not better last year’s marks.

ELECTRIC starting on the new outboard motors is a feature that appeals particulariy to the person more or less unfamiliar with the outboard motor—unfamiliar perhaps because the reputed balkiness of the outboard has caused him to hesitate in buying one.

IT IS not always necessary to purchase an anchor. Under some conditions the anchor I am about to describe will work satisfactorily. Get a large paint can—one that has a large rim that will hold concrete well. Fill the can with concrete about halfway, and then put in the horseshoe, prongs down, so that the curved part projects far enough above the top of the pail so that when the pail is filled with concrete the horseshoe will prove a convenient handle.

Editor:—I have been reading for some time articles in the boating department having to do with cruisers for outboards. The result has been that I have determined to build a cruiser to fit the Missouri River at this point. My idea is to use the boat as a hunting camp, instead of the customary tents or cabins, inasmuch as the river cuts away our camp sites as fast as we can locate them.

Albert Van Siclen Pulling
A GOOD canoe deserves good care. A poorer one, or one nearly worn out, must have careful treatment. I have found the following hints to be helpful: Keep your canoe clean—especially inside. Sand and muck work their way between canvas and planking, increasing the weight, absorbing moisture, and promoting decay.

THIRTY-EIGHT years ago, fate changed my hunting grounds from the deer forests of the North to the more settled slopes of the Alleghanies, where in those days, before the tanneries ruined the woods, there were enough squirrels, rabbits, ’coons, woodchucks, and even turkeys to provide fine sport for a young man badly stricken with a love for the rifle and the open places.

NOW for the long months of closed seasons on game. Nothing to do with shooting time but chase after varmints and shoot holes in targets with the big rifle, or hunt rodents and shoot holes in targets with the little rifle. But the big rifle is a hungry brute, and goes through a pile of costly loaded brass cases like a goose through a cabbage patch.

The generation soon to be born will probably know nothing of firearms other than that which is written, for they will doubtless he denied the privilege of owning or handling weapons. From much that has been recently written, this yet unborn host will get the idea that the real revolver shot of old was capable of “hitting a 10-cent piece, nine times out of ten, shooting from the hip without aim at 50 yards,” as we are seriously told that Wild Bill could do.

Editor:—I notice in the November, 1929, issue of OUTDOOR LIFE, under “Rifle and Pistol Queries,” page 68, Colonel Whelen under “Trajectories, 170-Grain Bullet” gives the drop of that bullet at various distances. I would like to know if there is any practical or theoretical method of determining this drop from the ordinary trajectory tables given in the ammunition catalogs, in which they give the mid-range height.

IT WAS a calm, beautiful day in the summer of 1907. Leaving my camp in the Seminoe Mountains, Wyoming, I took my .25-35 Winchester rifle, some lunch, and a pair of binoculars, and started for a tramp over the hills immediately surrounding the picturesque Bradley Peak. Near the noon hour I stopped to rest and cat my sandwiches at a cool, sparkling, little spring on the west flank of the mountain; there was a thick growth of pinon pine near the spring, which afforded shelter from the blazing sun.

I BELIEVE the first thing to think about in starting a kennel is whether you have some time available, regularly, that you do not have to figure at too high a price per hour. The second is, “Do you like to work with dogs? Can you really enjoy the detail work of caring for them?”

THE old saying has become trite, “Blood will tell.” Here is a picture of Junedale Allie, winner of the Associated Amateur Championship of three years ago, winner of the Continental Subscription Stake of 1930, and a half-dozen or more other well-earned places in lesser field trials.

Sherman J. Powell
THE hunting dog of forty years ago, whether pointer or setter, was a retriever instinctively. He hunted intelligently from his first day afield, and with limited experience pointed and retrieved with no training whatever. The average hunting dog of today is born with the speed mania, and it is next to impossible to steady him down, although some claim it can be done.

Question:—My six-month-old German shepherd dog has warts in his mouth. I had him operated on about two weeks ago, and he now has new warts where the others were removed, and in some places more than formerly. This puppy cost a nice sum, and I would like to have a goodlooking dog when matured.

Editor:—When a poisonous snake strikes, say, a rabbit, for food, does he strike with his fangs and inject his venom into the rabbit? If so, is the snake himself immune to the poison? Is it possible for the snake to strike and hold the rabbit without the use of his fangs?
