IF YOU haven’t already gotten your fishing tackle down from the attic it is high time that you got busy for fishing comes in with a bang this month. Openings of the season on various species of fish during May run a very close second to those during April in the United States and if the Canadian provinces are counted May becomes a red-letter month.

A Private War on Hawks

Henry F. Zinner
AS A side line to a muskrat venture in which I became interested one summer, I hatched nearly 300 pheasants and about 75 mallards on my place in New York state. I raised very few of these to maturity. Owls and hawks got them first. At any time of day in plain view of the house, these predators would dive into the yard and make off with an expensive meal.

OTTO M. JONES
I NEVER thought, when I first became a fly-fishing enthusiast, that I would ever take a trip in which there was more flying than fly-fishing. After about thirty years of trout fishing, however, I did that very thing. As a member of a fishing party of seven, I flew to the fishing grounds, and experienced greater thrills from the flying than from the fishing.

ABOUT the middle of April I got a letter from the foreman of a ranch that lies well up a beautiful valley on the Montana-Idaho border that the bears, coming out of winter quarters, had taken it upon themselves to cut down the supply of live stock.

J. A. KNIGHT
THE question of determining the perfect combination of conditions for catching fish is in the mind of nearly every angler during most of the season. When to go, when not to go, where to go, what method to use, and in what section of any given piece of water to find fish—these and many other problems trouble the angler planning a trip.

THOMAS McD. POTTER
INSTEAD of putting out teasers immediately astern, as is generally practiced in southern California waters by anglers seeking marlin swordfish, our three flying fish were being trolled twenty, thirty and forty feet obliquely back, with my baited hook ready to cast into the sea as soon as a worthy specimen showed that he was interested.

THERE was no question about the excited state of the miller in the little Devonshire village, in which I was stopping. His eyes were nearly popping from his head and his chest was heaving as if he had finished a Marathon. He had just climbed down the precipitous bank of the mill pond.

I did not want to go on that fishing trip with the Hired Man and Pop, otherwise known as Friend Husband. Most emphatically I did not. I had long since learned to regard fishing-trips with loathing and hate. What did you do? You walked a million miles, you waded thousands of streams, you got tired, and wet, and hungry and stiff and sore and cranky.

ALBERT M. DAY
EVERY now and then the coyote—ki-o-tee if you are of the Southwest, ki-ote if your range is north of southern Nevada —comes in for wide publicity in outdoor magazines, live-stock journals, and even in the daily press. Usually it starts with some hard-working sheepman who, outraged by the loss to predators of a number of ewes and lambs, denounces the wild dog of the plains as a murderer and a major economic peril.

FORTY years ago, a minister’s son in Albany, N.Y., received an ancient Belgian pistol for a present. That curious weapon, with brass barrel and a rim around its muzzle, first interested the boy, Albert Foster, Jr., in firearms. He determined to assemble a collection that would trace the whole history of gunmaking.

THE likelihood that some action would need to be taken to feed Nebraska’s bird life through the winter, became evident last fall long before the first snowfall. In other years, after the harvest season, there had always been grain, scattered over the fields and around the straw stacks left behind by the threshers.

H. M. ROBERTSON
IMPORTANCE of breaking in pointers and setters to do their work while still young, and of training them to quarter their ground and to stand ready when they have found game cannot be overemphasized. No experienced handler will permit his dog to run wild till it is a year old and then expect it to be endowed with perfect manners in the field and a tender mouth.

IN SOME respects the lot of the fisherman is an unhappy one. If, in his simple enthusiasm, he starts to tell a friend about a large fish he once caught, he must be prepared to see an expression of sophisticated unbelief overspread the friend’s face, or even to be asked some such insulting question as, “was it a rubber fish ?

SPORTSMEN who have hunted abroad know the ibex as one of the craftiest and wariest of all game—a creature with extraordinary powers of scent, sight, and hearing. Found in the deserts of eastern Egypt, between the Nile and the Red Sea, the ibex has only recently been photographed alive at close range.

HAVE you ever wished you had tremendously long, invisible arms? They’d be mighty useful in taking pictures of wild animals and birds. Instead of wishing for long arms, why not investigate the possibilities of telephoto lenses? The advantages of being able to crawl up to a distant subject by optical means are obvious.

AN EXCELLENT bait-casting trace may be made of imitation silkworm gut. Besides being tough and flexible, it is more nearly invisible than wire. Personally, I prefer the three-ply twisted. It has a breaking strength of 38 lbs. (much more than needed) and yet is quite fine.

Question: I have several negatives that are very thin. Can I intensify them to get better prints and what intensifier shall I use?—B.J., Mass. Answer: The question as to whether intensifying the negatives will improve their printing quality depends on the original cause of the thinness.

THE greatest known concentration point of big-game anglers is on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

WILLIAM JACKSON
NO OTHER possession of the sportsman responds so readily to proper care and attention as a boat, and no other possession shows neglect and untimely depreciation so soon. A general overhauling every spring and fall is advisable to keep any craft in condition to withstand ordinary service and an overhauling in the spring is indispensable.

F. J. Preston
A CANOE, or small boat, taken from the water when not in use suffers damage if it is left unprotected in the open. A practical method of storing it so it can be easily suspended from the roof of a garage is by means of slings. The slings are made of heavy canvas, and are provided with rings which join to the lower pulleys of the hoisting rope and tackle.— Ernest Phillips, Miss. TO PROTECT your boat from the edge I of a wood wharf, take a worn auto tire and cut into pieces about 12 in.

ALMOST every nautical amateur flirts with the idea of using an automobile engine in his boat. The idea has its attractions, that of economy probably being the outstanding one. But there are also many objections, many of which unfortunately are not perceived by the boatman until he has begun the installation.

MY PARTNER and myself had been waiting in ambush all afternoon at Wolf Pond clearings in the Adirondacks for a wise old buck that frequented the clearing. But luck was not with us and, disgusted, we started for camp. We were just entering a cattail swamp that laid between the clearing and the forest’s edge when suddenly three grouse broke out of a clump of alders in front of us and sailed beautifully across the cat-tails and disappeared into the spruce trees beyond.

AS a rule, long columns of shot, that is, heavy shot charges for the gauge, string shot more than standard loads. The reason is that, with these maximum charges, the factory is almost certain to increase the powder charge to maintain standard instrumental velocities.

A PACK BOARD is constructed on a design radically different from that of an ordinary pack, or ruck sack. A tightly stretched canvas drum on a light, sturdy wooden frame conforms to the wearer’s back, keeps projecting articles in the load from coming into direct and painful contact with the body, allows ventilation for the back, and prevents chafing.

ALTHOUGH comparatively a newcomer to this side of the Atlantic, the Labrador retriever has made rapid strides in recent years toward popularity in both the United States and Canada. It is unfortunate that it is not better known to all sportsmen who enjoy upland and marsh, stream and lake, bay and inlet shooting, for this sturdy gun dog, whose genesis is credited to the British Isles, is at home wherever the gunner wishes to use it.

Question: In a recent issue you referred to some kind of a mechanical device to make a dog hold his head up instead of tracking on the ground. Can you tell me where I can secure one or how it is made? I know this is not an inherited trait in my dog as he did not always do this.

DR. A. A. HERMANN
Dr. Hermann is glad to answer personally all letters from readers regarding their dogs' health. It should be remembered when writing him that serious illnesses cannot be treated successfully by a person unable to examine the dog. In such instances, a dependable local veterinarian should be consulted immediately.

In our Army, where more men are taught annually to shoot really well in both slow and rapid fire, our instruction manual has this to say relative to trigger control: “Men instinctively do the wrong thing in firing the rifle.
