ABOUT all January offers to the big game hunter is bear. Outside of bear, the noblest legal game of the month is wild turkey. In several Southern states, you can still test your skill against this wary king of North American game birds. With a good guide, who is a skilled “yelper,” you can look for some exciting sport—if you’re lucky.

IF THE fisherman has a car to get around in, he can’t go wrong in picking Melbourne, Fla., on the Indian River. Across the river at that place is a bridge 17/8 miles long. There is good casting the full length of the bridge. Four miles north is another bridge of about the same length.

FROM necessity, more and more sportsmen are taking an interest in conservation. Shrinking supplies of game and fish, and constantly tightening restrictions on taking either, are forcing hunters and anglers to realize that something must be done.

WISCONSIN will plant one billion fish in 1937. The State hatcheries have already been equipped and manned for the job, awaiting only a favorable spring season for spawn-gathering to carry it through. During 1936, the State planted more than 500,000,000 fingerlings and fry from its 31 hatcheries.

THE big game in the national forests increased by 10 percent during 1935, according to the Forest Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture. An estimate of the total number is given as 1,523,000. Antelopes, grizzly bears, deer, and mountain goats increased; elk, moose, and mountain sheep showed a slight decrease.

Africa's Biggest
There is an air of resolute determination and a dash of daring about the 10,000-mile trip made by this American hunter and his wife in quest of their first elephants. On later hunts, the author tried his luck on other game, and found it still held. He will describe these other stirring adventures in future articles

“LION or leopard—which do you want first?” Pat Ayre, our white hunter, asked as we bumped along the road in our little safari car, en route from Nairobi, Kenya Colony, to the game country. “Neither,” I replied. “Elephant.” “Second choice?”

OUR pack train followed a dim trail through a narrow pass where darkness was fast settling.

L. S. CAINE
WHEN the average angler thinks of Florida, he envisions large-mouth bass of tremendous size, leaping tarpon, and streamline sailfish—and he’s right. But, while seeking these better-known battlers, he is quite likely to pass up a form of Florida fishing that cannot be surpassed elsewhere in the world, namely, surf casting.

And, if you have never hunted the species, you have missed matching wits with what is, pound for pound, the grandest, smartest, little deer in America.

PORT ARANSAS, Texas, is the tarpon capital of the world. For six months in the year, the silvery giants parade up and down the jetties, mill, and leap and play in the surf along the North and South Beaches, and ceaselessly explore the inside flats, from Corpus Christi Bay to the Rockport channel.

As my husband is a forest ranger, we live at a ranger station in the very heart of this famous Wyoming country, where, each winter, two dozen or more moose and sixty odd deer come to be fed.

Once in a while, as I watch a lone car heading up that road, my mind goes back, with a shudder, to the night I spent on the mountain.

IT IS difficult to imagine electricity in the rôle of benefactor to the upland-bird hunter, but, in one instance, it is a decided aid. At Redding, Conn., there is one of the largest pheasant farms in the country. There the pheasant chicks are hatched in electric incubators, and raised almost to maturity in brooders heated by electricity.

IT IS good indeed to write of a partridge hunt while the taste of grouse breast still is sweet on your lips. It is becoming usual today, when a hunter speaks of an Eastern grouse hunt, to discover that he is delving back into memories of five, ten, or even twenty years to flush his birds.

BOB MITCHELL
BLACK mule deer, whose glossy coats shine like ebony; snow-white albino deer with pink, rabbitlike eyes; antlered does, part male, part female; unicorn deer, with extra horns jutting weirdly from the center of the forehead; deer whose antlers are grotesquely formed into a thousand points—these are some of the amazing animals that have bounded across the paths of hunters as they stalked deer in American forests.

TELESCOPIC rifle sights have reached such a stage of popularity as to have become a fad. Half the men who write me about their rifles either have a ’scope or want one. Naturally, when a man pays no more than $25 for a rifle, he doesn’t like the idea of paying double that sum for a sight.

IN PREVIOUS articles, I dealt with the stance and manner of holding to break the outgoer and incomer at station No. 1. This month we will step over to station 2 for a try at the outgoer. The first thing for the novice to consider is the position of his feet, for the hinges in our bodies will tend to jam, or work stiffly, when we attempt to swing toward the right while the left arm is extended.

Reboring Shotgun Barrels
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
Gerard Kohlman
IF YOUR gun barrel has too much choke for your shooting needs, don’t have it sawed off. Have it rebored. A sawed-off barrel will usually shoot a wide-open pattern, and it is suitable for only the shortest range. Moreover, should a little of that choke be wanted again, as is often the case, the work of replacement requires the skillful services of a master barrel mechanic.

ANY tackle box is satisfactory for storing miscellaneous tackle, but they are not so good for carrying reels. Rather than have my good reels bounce around with the rest of my tackle, I have partitioned off the lower part of my box so that the reels fit in snugly.

IN A letter telling of his early days in Holland, J. P. De-Vries, of Buenos Aires, gives some pointers on carp fishing. “Carp fishing,” he says, “is great sport in Holland, but few persons understand the game. The carp were always on bottom, and we fished for them with boiled potatoes.

Question: Are there any landing nets suitable for medium to large muskies? I have had some failures with gaff hooks, but have heard a net would not work.—L. M. J., Ohio. Answer: There are no landing nets suitable for muskies of any size. A salmon net might serve the purpose, but it would be very awkward to handle in a boat.

J. CHARLES DAVIS
SHOULD anglers pay for a license to take ocean fish? This has always been a vigorously debated question on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. In California, an old law, which has been on the books for more than 25 years, has been dusted off, and the Division of Fish and Game has been instructed to enforce it.

THE United States tarpon record, according to recent research, is held by Edward Trainer, of Philadelphia, with a 223-lb., unmutilated fish, caught in the north fork of the St. Lucie River, at Stuart, Fla. “Trainer,” says Ernest Lyons, of Stuart, “was anxious to have his catch mounted, but there was no taxidermist in Stuart at that time, so he hired a local undertaker to ice down the fish, and take it by hearse next day to Palm Beach, where it was mounted by Fred C. N. Parke.

MAURICE H. DECKER
YOUR choice of outdoor clothing for normal winter temperatures can be determined by the amount and character of the exercise you perform. Do not wear too many heavy garments for strenuous sports, such as skiing, snowshoeing, and vigorous hiking.

TO MAKE a pair of snowshoes that will serve in an emergency, place two wide, barrel staves side by side, and fasten them together with cleats 6 in. from the ends. Wedge a strip of stave between them at the back, to act as a tail or drag. A leather strap provides a toe hold, and pieces of old, suspender webbing, fastened to the strap, tie about the heel to keep the foot from slipping back.

Question: Would you be kind enough to tell me just how snowshoes are used, the method of traveling, etc?—F. L. M., Ill. Answer: There is no special trick in walking on snowshoes. You must simply learn to lift your feet, spaced a bit wider apart, and drag the rear foot up over the front one, on which your weight momentarily rests, to avoid striking the shoes against each other.

PERHAPS the most important question that confronts many shooters, when purchasing shells, is that of determining what difference exists in pattern and range among the light, medium, and heavy 12 bore shotgun loads. Curious to find out for myself just what these loads would do, I carefully tested each of them by the pattern-board method.

WILLIAM JACKSON
THE canoe is one item of the sportsman’s equipment that is continually exposed to the elements, and used under every conceivable condition, yet often it receives far less care than equipment that is treated better in use. However, if it is gone over at intervals, preferably at the end of the active season, a well-built canoe will render long and continued service.

THE hunter can maneuver his rowboat into this brush duck-blind with great ease. As the log at one end of the blind is set 8 in. below water, the boat can be pushed in by a stroke of the oars. After the boat is inside, the hunter thrusts the ends of a few leafy boughs into the holes bored in this end log.

H. G. Moore
WHEN it comes to usefulness on the scatter gun, the modified-choke boring is truly a Jack-of-all-trades. As such, it is probably not master of any. It is too close-shooting for brush work, and too open for the extreme ranges covered by the full-choke.

EDITOR Outdoor Life:
WHILE deer hunting in the Adirondacks last fall, I was back in the woods about four miles, still-hunting as most hunters do in that section, when I came across a chap sitting about 100 ft. off the main trail. He told me he was a watcher on a drive that included six drivers and eight watchers.
