At this season of the year sportsmen probably are more concerned with winter feeding of game birds, legislation, reminiscing, and tackle repairs than with the problem of "where to go" which later may become a question of considerable importance. Nevertheless, if you are looking forward to a spring trout fishing trip now is the time to make your plans.

Growing Elk Herds Need Land

DONALD STILLMAN
YELLOWSTONE National Park long has been the big elk-breeding reservoir for the surrounding country. In former years, hundreds of elk were shipped from the northern Yellowstone herd for stocking purposes, but the demand has subsided. Artificial feeding has been conducted in Yellowstone since 1895 to save the game from starvation. Since 1919 the production of hay crops and the purchase of feed has cost $397,000, according to the American Game Association.

Question: For a number of years I have been attempting to introduce ring-neck pheasants on my country place. I have reared the birds from eggs purchased at a local game farm, and have fed them throughout the summer. Each fall they wander off into the woods (which, of course, is what is desired) but after this the birds simply do not stay put.

ALLEN PARSONS
A SILVERY fish leaped into the air on the end of a taut line, and fell back into the water with a resounding splash. "I say—a rainbow! An old friend of mine," remarked the fisherman I had just over taken on the Esopus. His looks and his accent were both English. His gear was English, too—his rod at least ten feet long with a spear in its butt.

I DROVE into Detour, on the Michigan mainland at the mouth of the St. Mary’s river, about 10 o’clock at night—a wild winter night, with snow swirling across the road like white smoke—and asked at the corner garage for Miner Seaman. Someone phoned him, and while I waited and warmed myself by the big round stove I asked, too, about Roland Pierson, who had left Muskegon, 250 miles down state, late the previous afternoon in a two-place Skylark plane and who was to meet me at Drummond, the little village on the island opposite Detour.

RAY BERGMAN
WHEN history has granted him the justice of perspective, American anglers as a whole will class the small-mouth bass as one of our foremost fresh-water fish. Interesting, wary and extremely gamey, this truly American fish is equal in quality to any of the fresh-water species extant.

MAURICE KELLERMANN
THIS is neither a fairy tale nor yet one of Aesop’s fables, but a simple, true story wherein a farmer is “stung” by a Hornet. But let me go back to the origin of things. A year ago, before making a trip to some of the jungle country of South America, I bought a new M54 Winchester Hornet to which I affixed my trusty 438 Lyman Fieldscope. For ammunition I selected Peters because I was taking that make for my .250 caliber Savage Niedner rifle. I had a lot of fun with the Hornet on small game such as agouti and wild turkey.

THE next time a big-game hunter tries to make your flesh creep with his tales of tiger and elephant hunting, ask him if he has hunted the rhinoceros in Burma. If he hasn’t, he has missed one of the biggest thrills that can come to a man. In my opinion, tracking rhinoceros in the Burmese hills is as exciting as any sport you could name and the most punishing of all big-game hunting.

I FIRST met Harry Blackstone, the famous magician, on the stage of the Auditorium Theatre, in Washington. One of his favorite tricks in those days was called "Duck Inn." Into a large, black, empty tub Blackstone threw a number of duck eggs. A pail of water followed; then the report of a blank-cartridge pistol.

COLOR Doesn't Make a Bird Dog

William Cary Duncan
EVEN a casual reading of the tabloids leads to the conclusion that gentle men still prefer blondes, and the reader of sporting magazines must still infer that gunners prefer light colors in their bird dogs. The timehonored arguments in favor of both are still advanced and probably always will be. But, after all, isn't it partly per sonal taste rather than intrinsic merit or demerit that has created tht prefer ence? Or a touch of pardonable vanity, perhaps?

DURING the past twenty years I have seen a great deal of American game killed with all sorts and calibers of rifles. During this time I have had more experience with elk than any other large species, but I have killed, or have seen others kill, moose, grizzly, black and the smaller brown bears, and a good number of caribou.

AN OLD timer might be inclined to believe that most narrow escapes are the result of ignorance, carelessness or lack of fore thought. It is to be doubted if there is such a thing as "narrowest escape," provided a man is aware of having had more than one battle to a finish with death.

"JUST then, out of the thicket of bamboos, appeared an enraged bull elephant. His small eyes gleamed wickedly, and the sun light glinted on the white ivory of his tusks. Then, with trunk tightly curled, he charged. I turned to my gun bearer, seized the double-barreled express rifle and fired.

AFEW weeks after the deer season closed in New York, I was talking to an enthusiastic hunter. "The number of buck taken in New York was only a few hun dred behind last year, in spite of the terrific winter of 1933-1934," he said. "In another ten years the hunting is going to be even better than it is now.

WHEN you go to a trout stream and cast a fly that has been made by a professional fly tver, you enjoy the thrill of know ing that your lure has been expertly made according to the best traditions of the sport. Yet it is my opinion that the angler who casts a fly made by himself increases his enjoyment.

RAY BERGMAN
HOW many times have you bemoaned the fact that you must use your split-bamboo fly rod for early-season bait fishing? Bait fishing is hard on a delicate fly rod and the small, brushy stream is especially cruel. Candidly, a good rod is not meant for this work and the wise angler will not abuse one by using it for the purpose.

GRUBS make excellent bait for many fish but they are delicate things to handle. When put on a hook in the ordinary way they seem to lose their substance and ooze away until nothing but the skin remains. If you will place the hook in the head of the grub and then tie the soft body to the shank of the hook with thread, the bait will remain natural looking and be a satisfactory lure.

YOU should not overlook spinning and wobbling lures for early fishing. Sometimes they are more effective than live bait. Several years ago I acquired a new lure of the darting, wobbling type which proved a winner. I carry it in two finishes, silver and gold.

Striped Bass WE SHOULD not forget that the striped bass is a mighty fine fish, game on the rod and tasty in the pan. I have had some really exciting sport trolling for these fish in the brackish waters of tidal rivers and also in the grassy creeks leading into the more sheltered bays. The outfit for this trolling is quite simpie. Personally I use a five-foot, six-ounce split bamboo bait casting rod, but I think that a steel rod of the same length would be equally as good if not better.

R.B.
Question:ȄThis year I bought a few nymphs and tried them on a near-by stream. All I could hook were small brown trout. Every time a good fish struck, I missed it. Is there any way you can explain how to strike when us'ing a nymph? I also have trouble when using leaders finer than 2X. As soon as I use 3X or lighter I break the leader near the fly on the strike. How do you ever handle leaders of this fine calibration? you ever handle leaders of this fine calibration? I am sixteen years old and while I've fished a lot the time is yet to come when I strike a trout stream during a big fly hatch-when hordes of flies fill the air and the trout rise greedily.

Question: I dropped my camera and the part that supports the lens got bent a little. Will this affect the pictures and how can I remedy it?—A.C.H., B. Maine. Answer: If the lens standard is bent enough so that you can actually see that it leans forward or backward, the focusing scale will no longer serve to focus the lens accurately. Furthermore, the tipped lens will not focus on a plane parallel to the plate or film.

This fact is responsible for the success of big-fish hunting, which has developed in just a few years into the fastest-growing of all sporting activities. Th search for angling thrills is never-ending and each new day may be the most thrilling yet encountered.

IF you are a hiking camper, the chances are you're not satisfied with your tent. Not many such campers are. One that provides enough protection, is often too heavy for comfortable packing, and one light enough to fit your pack sack, may not protect you from weather and insects in the camping seasons.

MANY of 1,500,000 motordriven craft owned in the United States today are used solely for cruising but countless thousands of small boats are employed by outdoor sportsmen for fishing, hunting, trapping and similar purposes. Belonging for the most part to no yachting club or boating association, these thousands of outdoor sportsmen are not usually in a position to become fully and accurately informed concerning their obligations under the Federal motor-boat laws.

UNLESS it is the full choke, the most common boring found on American shot guns is the improved cylinder, which usually covers a circle of about 24 in. at 20 yds. and in this circle will place about 90 percent of the charge. The pattern shown is that made by so-called skeet boring, but it differs very little from the usual improved cylinder.

Question:—I have a 20 gauge double gun, both barrels full choke, that I use for all my hunting. It is a great gun for squirrels and ducks but is not a good quail gun. For quail, I have always used No. 8 shot. The pattern is so close that they are hard to hit and often when shot at close range they are badly torn.

Watch Your Gun

J.P. CUENIN
THE manner in which a skeet shooter grips his gun is one of the most important parts of the game if he wishes to maintain a good average. The slightest variation in the grip with either hand may result in a miss that might have been a hit had the gun been held with both hands as the shooter is accustomed to hold it.

SKEET shooters in Austin, Texas, are perhaps the only ones in the United States who shoot over a city-owned field. The layout is located in Zilker Park, only five minutes from the heart of the city. The city government built the trap houses, rest rooms and pavilions, but the actual skeet-shooting equipment was in stalled by a concessionnaire and is now operated by him.

DR. A. A. HERMANN
Question: My valuable trained pointer has a swelling on side of jaw that has been lanced unsuccessfully a number of times. There is also a swelling filled with clear fluid alongside his tongue. Please advise me what to do.—L. DeV., N. B., Canada. Answer: The very small ducts which convey saliva from the salivary glands into the mouth sometimes are closed by seed awns of wild creeping grasses or by adjacent inflammation.
