THOUGH he was born in New York City as recently as July 26, 1921, John M. Loré, Jr., the youthful cameraman who supplied the photographs for “How a Boy Photographer Made Deer Take Their Own Pictures” has already developed a woods instinct that has impressed the guides of Nova Scotia, Can.

ITS NAME was Mud! There were 197 Michigan lakes of that name. Now there are 196. The one west of Hastings is henceforth to be known as Chief Noonday Lake. . . . Roy Frantz, Pueblo, Col., bagged a bull elk in that State last season believed to be largest reported since 1910, when S. N. Leek got one with a spread of 63.5 in. Frantz’s elk had an antler spread of 61.25 in. . . .

Pheasants by the Thousand

ANDREW R. BOONE
MOST Washingtonians recall those lush days when native pheasants and bobwhite ranged abundantly over the State. Now these game birds are disappearing from once-favored haunts, and seem to decrease despite strict game regulations. Sage hens and prairie chickens have so far declined that hunting them is forbidden.

EDITOR Outdoor Life
"TOO much is too much and when I get too much I just naturally have to pop off. But what really burns me up is the letter from W. F. Tennis, Alliance, Ohio. I wonder just what they call channel cats in Ohio. There are at least a dozen species of catfish, known as channel cat, the blue, the yellow, the forked-tail, the spotted, the willow, and last, but not least, the true opelousas.

Skill Alone Gets No Lions
YOU NEED TRAIL SENSE, GAME DOGS, AND TOUGH HORSES WHEN YOU HUNT BIG CATS, BUT MORE THAN ALL YOU NEED LADY LUCK

DR. W. S. LACKNER
THERE may be those who say that luck plays no part in hunting, but I am not among them. Skill, patience, perseverance, and experience all are important, but, without luck on your side, you’re licked from the start. And, of all the field sports in which luck plays a big part, I can think of none more dependent on luck for success than lion hunting.

THE skipper of the forty-ton trading schooner Taurua landed me at the coral atoll of Tepuka, in the Tuamotu, or Dangerous, Archipelago, about 2,200 miles south southeast of Hawaii. The blue Pacific curled and crashed over the fringe of barrier reefs, but the lagoon within was calm and indigo.

FOR half the winter, I’d been trying to get AI Goodman to go ice fishing, but he was always too busy. One day I walked in on him, and AI started for me, wagging a finger in my face. “Just the man I wanted to see,” he yelled. Then, dropping his voice: “How’d you like to go ice fishing?”

A THIRTEEN-YEAR old Negro girl was picking cotton in the scorching Texas fields. Suddenly, the other pickers, some distance away, heard her terrified screams. Running to her, they saw that a giant eagle was trying to carry her off. One of the pickers attempted to beat off the great bird with a pair of cotton scales, but it kept up the fight until a gun was brought and it was killed.

ON A hot Friday afternoon in midsummer, I went home and threw my brief ease on the sofa. I flopped down in an easy chair and let my legs stretch out in front of me. My straw hat slid off my head, and rolled across the room. My wife, hearing me moan, came through the dining-room door and stood staring at me.

RAIN pelted down in torrents on the bark roof of the trading post. Like a threatening sword, lightning cut the sky at intervals and played nervously over the purple-shadowed pines. It had been a tough winter even for the Far North. Not since the previous summer had I seen a white face or spoken a word of English.

ELMER KEITH
THIRTY years ago, when I was a small boy in Montana, learning the rudiments of game trailing, there were many expert trackers in that section. Many had spent their lives trailing game and live stock; others had been scouts during the Indian wars of the ’70's.

CHESTER CHATFIELD
ABOUT the time you think you are getting to know pheasants, and maybe beginning to feel that the big, gaudy birds are pretty soft shooting, something is likely to happen. It did to me. I had done my hunting in eastern Washington, along the irrigation ditches running through open fields, and in the orchards.

THE morning fog was cold as a maiden aunt’s kiss. The mahogany slope was steep, but the buck's tracks were broad and fresh. Snowy mud still drizzled from his dewclaws. Behind a lone scrub pine at the slope’s rim, we stopped. With sagelike wisdom, I whispered to the Little Lady:

ALLEN PARSONS
NEW JERSEY deer hunting, I told Larry, was open to criticism because the bucks were small—too many hunters in the short open season cut off the bucks before their prime. Sure, I admitted, it was good sport to hunt them, but, if you wanted a trophy, you couldn’t find it among the bucks of the elementary grades.

AS YOU walk along the rim on the shady side of the deep canyon on a bright November morning, you’re half-convinced there isn’t a deer in the country. Then something attracts your attention. You look across the canyon, and there, in the sun beside a juniper, is a deer.

Capt. EDWARD C. CROSSMAN
THIS increasing popularity of the ’scope sight for the best-dressed shooter is making him wind-conscious. If it doesn’t, then he must wonder at times why he aimed in the longitude of the horns and hit in the longitude of the tail or vice versa. It is not a problem that enters largely into the life of the tin-can variety of .22 shooter, nor yet the hunter who rarely shoots at his deer at more than 100 yards, but the ’scope, plus a good holder back of the rifle, hugely extends the effective range of both the .22 and the high-power hunting rifle.

THE first summer I was in Wyoming, a group of us staying at a dude ranch got up at 5 o’clock one morning and rode up the Buffalo Trail to a high point overlooking the river. In front of us, the sun was painting the mountains with a glory of color, and all around us were stalwart lodgepole pines and aspens.

NOTHING spoils the fun of boating quite so completely as a small, persistent leak. However, since any boat is likely to develop a leak at some time, the wise owner will learn how to cure a leak before it becomes too much of a nuisance. This isn’t difficult, but requires close attention to detail.

AN ANANCHOR that can be stowed aboard a small boat is easily made of a ,5/8-in. iron bar and three short leaves from an automobile spring. The end of the bar is turned over to form an eye for the line, and the spring leaves, each bored to take the rod, are slipped over the other end, being held by a nut on either side.

THERE are no positive rules governing the selection of particular flies for various seasons. There are too many local factors involved for any pattern, or group of patterns, to be ideal in all places, under all conditions, at the same time.

WHEN moving from place to place, fishermen who employ a casting or trolling rod and reel usually attach the hook to one of the cross rods of the reel, or leave it dangling from the tip. In such positions, however, the hook is likely to become entangled with clothing or with brush or weeds.

Question: Do you let a muskie or Northern pike mouth the bait for a couple of seconds before setting the hook?—H. C. Answer: If you mean live bait, the answer is, “Yes,” and usually you should let the fish have it somewhat longer than a couple of seconds.

WHEN patching waders don't hurry the job. First clean the spot to be patched with a piece of very fine sandpaper. This roughens as it cleans. Don't rub too much. All that is required is to get off the dirt. When this has been done, apply two coats of rubber cement to the scoured part, letting the first one dry thoroughly before applying the second.

"YOU know, son, for years I used to think that fish dug in for the winter like bears and wood chucks, but it ain't so. Some of them stay around, but most of them, the faster fish, ain't here any more after the cold spells start. If they stayed hereabouts, those newfangled trawlers would dig them out, no matter how deep they went into the mud.

IF YOU possess a little mechanical ability, and most sportsmen do, you can construct a cross-hair front sight in less than an hour. It is rigid, can be carried in a pocket along with your standard inserts, and, when used in conjunction with the smallest aperture in your rear sight, will enable you to make surprising scores at 50 yd.

WILLIAM CARY DUNCAN
WHEN the shooting season is over, many of us find ourselves looking back on the days we spent afield and attempting, in a more or less serious way, to balance the budget of physical and mental recreation we had planned for ourselves. In this process, we are likely to find our dog or dogs have had a deal to do with the final figures.

W. C. D.
Question: For exercise, I allow my l½-year-old Irish setter to run rabbits for 1 hour every evening. Do you think I’ll be able to break her from running them when quail season opens this fall, or should I do it now? What is the best method to use in breaking a strong-headed Irish setter of this habit?

DR. JAMES R. KINNEY
Dr. Kinney 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.
