IT IS fast approaching the season of the year when the red blood in all sportsmen asserts itself and the only cure possible is a sojourn in the big woods, in cabin or tent, with the smell of balsam or pine and the solitude of the great outdoors. Last year I had all the symptoms of this malady.

AN INGENIOUS new water-snake trap, designed by Elmer L. Pilling, game protector at Philipsburg, Pa., is intended as a safeguard against fishkilling reptiles in rearing ponds and streams. Constructed of ⅜-in.-mesh galvanized wire, the trap has wings at each end to guide the snakes into the funnels which form the entrances.

SWEEPING changes in game-control methods are promised sportsmen throughout the country by the American Wildlife Institute, recently organized by a large group of outstanding industrialists, publishers, and sportsmen. Discarding the word “conservation” in favor of “restoration,” the new organization, it is announced, will strive not merely to maintain the present stock of wild life but, by restoring favorable natural environment, will attempt to increase the quantity of fish and game.

HAL MILLER
GROWING popularity of cocker spaniels as hunting dogs focuses attention more than ever upon this breed. While only 26 pointers were registered in the American Kennel Club Stud Book in 1934 and 24 in the first 5 months of this year and only 138 and 244 setters were registered in the same periods, cockers leaped from 550 to 762.

J. E. WILSON
ON THE 18th of December, 1933, being far out in Alaska and practically out of everything else—having a badly depleted larder and a sadly depreciated poke—and being, among other things, most urgently in need of meat, I had the good fortune of taking out of circulation a 6-foot bull moose that gave me all the meat, kick, and grief my system could very well stand.

IF MY meager knowledge of Latin literature doesn’t play me false, it was Terence who wrote: “How often things happen by chance which you would not dare to hope for.” This is true. So true that down through the centuries since Terence lived and died his words have become a proverb.

I HAVE seen a 155-pound marlin—tiger of the sea—jump from the Pacific 104 times in a frenzied effort to shake himself from a line that could easily be broken by a direct pull of 16 pounds. I’ve seen broadbill swordfish weighing ¾ ton jerking themselves loose from steel hooks and heavy lines.

WE LOOKED forward impatiently to the North Dakota chicken season even though opening day fell on the date of the fall equinox. What a date to select! Didn’t the game officials know that there was always unsettled weather at that time ? And didn’t they know that chickens can be successfully hunted only on warm, sunny days ?

EACH fall a horde of hunters comes north to follow the trail of the white-tail over windfalls, through the hard-wood slashings and tamaracks. Alert, and ready to shoot at the bobbing, white flag and antlered head of the buck, they carry .30/30’s, and spin tall yarns in their stuffy camps.

UNTIL recently, skulls alone were the mute evidence that there ever was a concrete reason for the name of the Big Horn Mountains in northeastern Wyoming. For years the name had mocked the sportsmen of Sheridan. There were other kinds of game in abundance on the eastern slopes of the mountains—plenty of deer, elk, blue grouse, bear; plenty of everything, ironically enough, except bighorns, the game these sportsmen prize most.

ALL work and no play makes Jack a very dull boy. And you can’t be dull and keep your congregation awake every Sunday morning. Thus at least thought the Rev. R. E. Eshmeyer, pastor of the Bloomfield Reformed Church, Bloomfield, Ohio. So Eshmeyer became interested in a hobby which has brought him not only pleasure but considerable fame as well.

IT’S a long hop from a duck blind in Currituck Sound, N. C., to the island of Ceylon, but my friend in the grassmatted boat beside me made it conversationally without even getting breathless. Because the ducks were so few and the day so cold, it was perhaps only natural that his thoughts should turn to the warm climate of India—and elephants.

CLEMENT CROUCH
WALT operates a cigar store. In addition to operating a cigar store, Walt is a fisherman. Perhaps I should have mentioned the fishing first, because that seems to be more important to him. The only reason I mention the cigar store at all is that it is there he keeps his trophies, mounted bass, pike, trout, and muskies.

Why You Can Overexpose and Still Get GOOD PHOTOS

ALFRED P. LANE
A PHOTO FINISHER told me not long ago that, of all the bad photographs caused by failure to estimate the correct exposure, at least 90 percent can be attributed to underexposure and only 10 percent to overexposure. My own early experiences taking snapshots and a critical examination of thousands of amateur photographs check very closely with this observation.

THE time to prepare for going into commission in the spring is before you pull your boat out of the water for the winter. If you live in a private dwelling and your craft is small enough to hibernate in a sling in the garage or on horses in the cellar, you win the first points of the game.

MAURICE H. DECKER
THIS simple method will make the work of butchering killed game less distasteful and unpleasant. It will also help to keep the meat sweet and avoid the objectionable taste sometimes detected in carelessly handled venison. If the deer is dead when discovered, it is useless to stick it because dead animals seldom bleed from the throat.

How the Indians Roast Their Meat

Townsend Whelen
FOR roasting meat, the primitive Indians of the Northwest use an interesting method that is seldom seen nowadays, since most Indians are now supplied by traders with the modern and indigestion-producing frying pan. I think that all but the older hunters are entirely unfamiliar with the stunt.

A Food Cabinet FOR THE AUTO CAMPER

R. G. Bullard
WHILE you are planning auto camping trips for next summer, give a little thought to the way you will carry your provisions. The old, haphazard way of loading up with odd boxes, jars, and containers is wasteful of space and a trial to the cook. Most of the patent auto “buffets” and “kitchenettes” on the market are marvels of efficiency so far as space arrangement goes, but they pay too little attention to the main problem of keeping the food in wholesome condition.

Treating Toothache in Camp

D. C. Lyons
ONLY one of two things cause a toothache. First is exposure of the nerve to air, cold, fermenting food or moisture. Second is a dying tooth which is abscessing. Ordinary toothache can be stopped in camp and on the trail by spruce gum, bacon fat, gun grease, petroleum jelly or anything that will keep air or moisture out of the cavity.

FEW things are better sport in the shooting game than breaking flying targets. Whether at skeet or the traps, the pulverizing of clay pigeons gives a thrill to the most blasé shooter and the sociability of the sport makes it the most popular of all diversions with the gun.

THERE IS some question in my mind as to whether one degree or one form of choke shoots all sizes of shot well. The experiences of any one man never tell a complete story, so I would like to hear from my readers about this. From my tests with buckshot, not very extensive, I think the man who obtains a good buckshot barrel is in luck.

MAJOR CHAS. ASKINS
IN THE last few years, I have noticed that raised ribs on shotguns, particularly on double guns, are increasing in popularity. Many shooters commend the ribs because they are narrow, thus being an aid to more accurate sighting. In rifleman’s parlance, a fine front sight can be held closer than a coarse front sight.

IT IS surprising what a change can be wrought in the appearance and fit of a fine but travel-worn old arm, when turned over to a really expert gunsmith, along with good, dense, walnut blanks, for restocking. Having an old but sound No. 4 Ithaca ejector 12 bore, built 20-odd years ago, I decided to have it restocked to fit me and to improve its appearance and efficiency.

PERHAPS lake trout are not in the same class as muskies, salmon brook trout, small-mouth bass and others but they have their good points, nevertheless. Under certain circumstances and with light tackle they are worthy antagonists. Unless you have fished for them under proper conditions you really do not know their sporting possibilities.

TO MAKE a practical and effective casting lure, round a used cartridge case and make two angular hack-saw cuts ⅜ in. from the base. Into the slots solder pieces of brass to rotate the lure. Next, drill holes in the center of the base and through the axis of the bullet to accommodate the piano wire axle.

OFTEN we give too much thought to the choice of a lure or fly and not enough to the method of fishing. The right delivery, the proper placing of our fly or plug is far more important than any other thing in angling. Learn to know where the fish are, the procedure they follow when they feed.

IN THE autumn, the big game angler must either shift to a new locale or prepare to put his tackle in winter storage. Most anglers know the precautions they should observe in storing their tackle but most of them just stow it away “as is” in a closet until the day before it is wanted again.

I WAS most interested in reading Comm. G. M. Dyott's article, “Six Hundred Pounds of Fury.” Then, in a recent issue, I noticed a letter written by Capt. Hugh Thomason, in which the captain derides the existence of a 600-lb. tiger. I wish to correct the captain in that I have not only seen, but also been a member of a party of hunters that shot not one but two tigers in excess of 600 lb. each.
