"SMALL-MOUTH bass are calling me. That’s my bid for a topping good vacation, any old time, and with any old bank roll. It does not cost much to have a topping vacation at Province Lake, New Hampshire. This lake, near Wakefield, is reached by fine roads, and is not much settled.

THERE must be no more trapping of wild ducks or taking their eggs for private propagation purposes. Hereafter, anyone who wishes to breed wild ducks must obtain the ducks or eggs from commercial game farms, which are able to furnish ample stocks of waterfowl, bred from pure, wild strains.

BIRDS have their own idea of where home is, says Frederick C. Lincoln, naturalist of the U. S. Bureau of Biological Survey, and this idea should be considered by anyone who plans new “homes” for migratory waterfowl. Homing instinct, says Lincoln, does not develop strongly in a migratory bird until after it has first nested.

HAVE you ever stopped to estimate how much a black bass is worth? If asked the question, your first thought would be of the market place, where the bass would bring from 15 to 30 cents a lb. But Talbott Demmead, law-enforcement officer of the United States Bureau of Fisheries, would give you a different answer.

FLORIDA recently passed a bill to stop the sale of black bass. Florida conservationists had tried repeatedly to stop the sale of black bass, but until this year met defeat. This action eliminates the chief source of supply of black bass for the market. The only other source of note is Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee.

IF in the past anyone had asked me what big game trophy I would most like to take I would unhesitatingly have answered, “A mountain sheep.” Tales of stalking the king of the high cliffs and the crags had always fascinated me. However, I had felt sure that this kind of hunting was not for me.

J. F. OERTEL
NOT all the joys of surf fishing lie in the sheer excitement of pulling a fighting fish from the ocean's white-capped treasure chest. It has a thrilling uncertainty as well, for there is always the possibility, even when you are fishing for a definite species of fish, such as channel bass, that some huge shark, stingray or other uninvited guest will pick up your bait and tear out to sea to the accompaniment of a screeching reel.

I made up my mind that, to put it mildly, somebody with more enthusiasm than knowledge of animals had been indulging in a little flight of fancy.

Ghastly tales are told of the terrible fate of Sourdough Pete, when he ate a rubberado, or of Placer Bill, when he inadvertently stumbled over a whirling whimpus.

AS I wrote last month my first thirty days as a market hunter had netted me nearly $1,000. It seemed too good to last, and it was. Early in September I suffered my first serious reverse. But let my diary tell the story : September 3. Ran into a little bad luck, which accounts for the lapse in my diary entries.

Ray Bergman
IT IS often said that lake fishing could never have the charm of stream fishing and that trout offer a degree of uncertainty that could never be found in the pursuit of other species. Along with this platitude we usually hear another which stresses the importance of specialized angling methods for trout and the lack of their need when fishing for game fish not so high in the social scale.

THERE was a pungent odor of burned smokeless powder in the air of the range room of the Greenwich Revolver Club, of Greenwich, Conn., where we sat around a table back of the firing line. The merry clang of bullets on steel plates was at its height when a member dropped in for a few minutes with a guest.

TWO shells with which to kill one giant panda seem few indeed, particularly when you have already thrown one of the shells away. In fact an entire arsenal would have seemed quite meager to me the day last December when in the remote Tibetan border land, I frantically struggled to load my rifle while a bloody-mouthed panda shuffled closer and closer to me.

DEEP in the foothills of the White Mountains, near Mooselookmeguntic Lake in Maine, lies one of the strangest rivers on earth, a stream that in Indian legend is called the River of Stone. And the Indian legend is not far wrong ; it looks for all the world like a turbulent mountain stream that by some conjuring trick has been transformed into rock.

REGULARITY and roundness in the gut is one of the principal things to look for when buying leaders or the gut to tie them with. Assume, for instance, you had a 1x leader which was not true throughout its length. Suppose just one strand had a spot where the gut ran down as small as 3x or 4x.

HOW about your ground tackle ? Is your anchor something you selected merely because it is easy to drop overboard and raise, or is it a real man’s-size bit of equipment that will keep you off a lee shore when a gale springs up? If you have never yet been in this predicament and therefore do not know whether your outfit would keep you out of trouble, here is the seaman’s rule with which to measure the efficiency of your present rig.

Question: Could you give me some information about building a stern-wheel paddle boat? Our river is too shallow for inboard boats. I plan to use a 2-horsepower Wittu farm engine, 500 r.p.m. What would be the best shape to build the boat, length and width?

A SIMPLE telltale to show wind direction will assist in making the most of the wind. The one shown is made of a ¼-in.-diameter iron rod, threaded at one end. Two nuts are attached to secure the vane and pennant. The vane and pennant are free to swing in any direction.

SOME campers and anglers during the mosquito season wear head nets and gloves. Others rely on repellent dopes smeared over the exposed parts of their skin. A few of the most experienced use both nets and dope, and possibly a small minority merely suffers.

EVERY now and then somebody bobs up with the discovery that if the speed of a shot charge over a 40-yd. course is an average of 800 ft. a second, and if a fast duck is traveling 100 ft. a second, then the speed of the shot is only 8 times that of the bird.

J. P. CUENIN
TWO years ago skeet shooters began to suggest plans to equalize the chances of those who use 12, 16, and 20 gauge guns in matches. One of the plans was a handicap based on the shot load, and another was the proposal of C. R. Danielson, then president of the Northern California Skeet Association, to limit all three gauges to 1 oz.

THEY call him the dachshund, the teckel, the badger dog, and sometimes, in derision, the sausage dog—the dog that is sold by the yard. He has been, and still is, a subject for comic strips and humorous columns, but, for his inches, the lowly dachshund, or German badger dog, is the gamest little canine that ever wore hair.

He weighed 28 lbs. when I got him. After he became accustomed to the change in surroundings and in diet, he did very nicely.
