FOR MOST of his life Maurice H. Decker has been wondering if his father was right. “At the age of nine,” our Camping and Woodcraft editor tells us, “I abandoned mycherished ambition to become a railroad engineer, and decided I would be a second Daniel Boone instead.

MISSOURI was at one time a nattural wild-turkey state. From the low swamp land to the high peaks of the Ozark Mountains the gallant bird roamed the free range. But its fate was that of most of the state's game — hunters' guns almost wiped out the flocks.

EDITOR Outdoor Life
MARKET gunners of the past did no more than politics and commercialism are doing now to profit from natural resources. These natural resources belonged to all. Each state subdivided its share. Some have used up theirs or sold them out.

C. BLACKBURN MILLER
IN ALL the world there is probably no place in the hunting season as bonny as Scotland. At the moment I can think of no other term so descriptive as “bonny.” It seems to fit that mountainous region in the north of England as his shoes fit Mickey Mouse.

EVERY once in a while I feel like kicking myself because I fail to recognize good fishing right in my own back yard. At the moment I have a good swift kick coming because I’ve been overlooking Coregonus williamsoni Girard, or Rocky Mountain whitefish.

With Moose,You Never Know
Read the evidence this Alaskan has to offer, and you will agree that the biggest of the deer tribe also displays the biggest bag of tricks

RUSSELL ANNABEL
EXTRAORDINARY and wholly unexpected happenings, it seems to me, are the chief characteristics of moose hunting in Alaska. And that, perhaps, is why the moose is such popular game among visiting American sportsmen. Take an incident that occurred one blizzard-swept October afternoon at the headwaters of Mystery Creek, on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, during a hunt I was making with John and Matt Lantis.

THE ghost method of crow shooting was invented in Michigan one morning when Dan Markley was gazing idly out of Bryce Dennison’s kitchen window. “Look at that flock of crows crossing the river,” remarked Dan. “Where are they all coming from—Canada ?"

Bringing Home the Buck
He may have been a lightweight when you shot him, much lighter after you dressed him; but he's heavy as a horse to tote to camp

MAJOR M. E. BARKER
DEER HUNTING resolves itself into four simple operations. First you find the deer. Next you shoot him. Then you dress him. And, finally bring him home. In theory, that’s all there is to it. But in practice, bringing home the buck is likely to be a problem, as Griffin, Lee, and I found out many times in the Maine woods.

SCOOP! The Magic-Eye Camera has accomplished what innumerable sportsmen who use a camera in the field have tried to do: get a picture of a game bird being stopped in mid-air by a charge of shot. Many a lens has been aimed, many a shutter snapped, but successful shots could be counted on the thumb of one hand.

CHESTER CHATFIELD
ORDINARILY, any man foolhardy enough to ring my doorbell at 3 o'clock of a black October morning would get a cold welcome. But it was no ordinary occasion when Allison and Earl rang. In a scant four hours the bars of yearlong restraint would be dropped, and once again we could swing a shotgun barrel after the swift-winged ducks of our pond.

FRANKLIN REYNOLDS
THIS is the story of a boy who mounted a horse and rode 135 miles from a frontier cow town to recognition as America's best man with revolver, rifle, and shotgun. It is the story of Albert Howard Hardy. The place was Hyannis, Nebr.—a dusty settlement on the edge of things —and the year was 1896.

THE MIGHTY muskellunge, biggest game fish of America's inland waters, can be reared in a hatchery just like the smaller trout and bass. Wisconsin, where these tackle busters abound, is a leader in the artificial propagation of muskies, and these exclusive pictures from its Conservation Department give probably the clearest demonstration yet of how it's done.

ONCE upon a time a mighty hunter came back from the Canadian Rockies beaming like a six-year-old who has just been to a circus. Two days later he was wearing a face a yard long. “What’s the matter, Bill?” a friend asked. “You look like you never shot that champion bighorn.”

MOST sportsmen divide hunting and fishing into three stages: enjoyment of the sport, the exhilaration of bringing back some direct evidence of skill and luck, and the final satisfaction of eating said game after it had been properly cooked.

THE perplexing moment recounted by the tall-tale angler, in which he faces the alternatives of swimming after his runaway fish or of cutting his line, is no worse than the actual dilemma often faced by a lone big-game hunter who is unable to hang his kill.

VAN ALLEN LYMAN
IT IS ALWAYS wise to check theory by practical test, and to remember that actual results under actual working conditions are what really count. Some years ago my butcher shop for a long time was mainly a rifle. We lived back in the mountains, and meat was mostly small game—shot with a pumpaction repeater, using the .22 long-rifle Lesmok cartridge with hollow-point bullet.

Question : A friend maintains that when a bullet leaves a rifled barrel, held horizontally, it rises above the axis of the bore. I claim he is confusing the bore axis with line of sight; and that while the bullet does rise above the line of sight, it cannot possibly rise above the axis of the bore.

Do not run or in any way speed up the circulation Keep calm and don’t be afraid. The danger depends upon many factors— condition of the snake, whether you are bitten by one or two fangs, whether the snake recently has used up most of his venom, the part of the body bitten, rapidity of absorption, amount of venom as compared with the weight of the patient, and so on.

Question : There is quite a bit of an argument in this locality as to what size shells are best for duck hunting. This makes it quite bewildering to us newcomers. We would appreciate it if you would suggest what sizes you think we ought to use.

MANY small-game hunters, disappointed in the .22 Long Rifle cartridge, are interested in the .25 rim-fire. Some of them have been suggesting speeding up the cartridge to 1,500 foot-seconds, which is about the limit for lead-alloy bullets.

WHEN skeet first took hold, critics immediately arose to point out the alleged danger in this new form of target shooting. They were so vehement in declaring the sport a menace that it is doubtful if skeet could have survived a series of accidents, had such occurred.

DO UNTO OTHERS as you would have them do unto you” is as applicable to the sport of fishing as to anything else. To live up to the Golden Rule will be a help to anyone in becoming a successful angler. If you honestly endeavor to help someone else, instead of trying to outdo him, many of the stumbling blocks to success miraculously disappear.

THIS department has received so many letters asking "What is a game fish?" that we have not only given the matter considerable thought but have asked for the opinions of many expert fishermen upon the subject.
