WRITING your first hunting story must be something of a trick, when your previous efforts have been for medical journals and your subjects urology and such. But Dr. Roy Holmes made the transition smoothly, and clicked on the first try with “A Day at Tobe’s Place.”

BEAR beats time clock. A she with two cubs, near Laona, Wis., materially speeded up foot travel in that vicinity last fall. Sawmill employees complained that the bear was making them get to work ahead of time. ... No race prejudice here. White-tail buck and mule-deer doe mated at Meade County State Park, Kansas, and twin fawns were the result.

EDITOR Outdoor Life
AS A FIRM believer in protection for deer and for all wildlife, I have read with much interest that recent letter of Dr. Frank T. Woodbury, advocating an open season on does in alternate years. When one has lived in the heart of our best deer country as long as I have, and has seen the buck-only law tried out for years, he knows that it is a curse and the prime cause of getting many of our does shot, and left where they fall.

"WHAT are you fellers doing, snooping around here?” The voice came out of the dark, at that cold and spirits-lowering time between the utter blackness of a starless night and the first paling of the darkness into the deep gray of earliest dawn.

Dr. F. I. KRAUSS
FRANÇOIS TOMASHAW, full-blooded Indian, had been hired through our friend the game warden, months previous. We’d heard of François and we wanted him. He was said to be the best caller in all that Quebec country, and so wise in woods lore that he thought like a moose, looked like a moose, and smelled like a moose.

DAVID M. NEWELL
PROBABLY it is natural for every fisherman to like to believe that he is the sole inventor of something—even if it’s only a new alibi. How proud a man must feel who invents a brand-new kind of fishing! I know, for I’m the very guy who did it. Of course a certain fishing buddy of mine, who happened to be along, may take issue with me, but by that time it will be too late.

THAT little building would make a swell gun shop, I mused. The rent should be low—and the lower it was the better it would suit me. The building had thick adobe walls, and adobe, in case you’ve never seen it, simply is big bricks made of sundried mud.

ALL OF US confess to some affection for most of the wildlife we pursue. Even for most of the vermin. The fox, rascal that he is, has many endearing qualities; and those states that have removed him from the vermin list and given him the protection and dignity of legitimate game are on the right track.

CLIFF KITES picked up his gun, stepped quickly down from the front porch, and waited for old Sally. The setter followed, tail wagging eagerly, but the rest of her movements were slow and awkward. “She’s ten years old today,” Cliff remarked.

ROY HOLMES
DOWN in my neck of the woods an invitation to a deer hunt at Tobe’s place, over in South Carolina, confers more prestige than being elected congressman — a Democratic congressman, of course. True, there is hardly a week during the hunting season when Tobe is not host to some of his many friends.

WHEN the Seventy - fourth Congress adjourned, Representative B. T. Castellow of Georgia walked out of his office in the House Office Building and headed down Capitol Hill for Washington’s Union Station. He had no immediate family responsibilities; he didn’t have to go home to mend his political fences because he had declined nomination for a fourth term as representative of Georgia's Third Congressional District; he felt that after almost forty years of holding public office—twenty of them as solicitor general of Georgia—he owed himself a vacation; and he was sixty-one years old.

"BEAR off the starboard bow!” That strange cry is no stranger than the sport it springs from—hunting by ship. For out of the ports of Norway sail many wooden vessels, carrying sportsmen and explorers into the northern seas to seek the seal, the musk ox, the arctic hare, and—finest of trophies—the huge and powerful polar bear, undisputed king of the North.

MOST sportsmen have been greatly disturbed by the gruesome picture of the forest-fire menace that we found ourselves compelled to present to you last month. It came to them like the news that a friend was in peril. “Why is this destruction, this meaningless, ruthless desolation, allowed to go on?” they ask.

J. A. E.
Question: I have been using a metal boat for the last two years, but my friends keep telling me it's no place to be in a lightning storm. Do you know whether a metal boat is much more dangerous than a wooden one in this regard?-R. N., La. Answer: Damage through lightning to any sort of boat on the water is a rarity; it often does funny tricks, especially on boats with masts, but seldom if ever any real damage.

Keep Your Gas Tank Clean
Next summer's tun won't be spoiled by fuel-line trouble if you act now

J.A.E.
THE best way to guard against a plugged fuel line and a dead motor next summer is to spend a few hours thoroughly cleaning out your gas tank. No matter how carefully you have been straining gas into your tank, you will find, every time you clean the strainer, particles of reddish brown and graywhite.

MANY outboard motors, particularly the older models, will not throttle down to effective trolling speed. This is easily corrected by towing a water bucket from each side of the stern. These serve as brakes and give the motor a whole new range of low speeds.

RAY BERGMAN
ARTIFICIAL flies play an important part in the lives of fly-fishermen. Patterns which have been responsible for red-letter days become inseparable companions. Those experiences wherein some particular fly played a prominent rôle are always responsible for the most enthusiastically and realistically told stories.

Frankiyn W. Trinker
EELS make a very good dish if prepared properly; but the killing and skinning of one often presents a tough problem for the amateur fisherman—and sometimes for the seasoned angler as well. A method that I have used with great success is as follows: The eel is grasped firmly around the head with a dry piece of burlap or old rag, (which does not “slime up" immediately) and the lower third of him is clouted forcibly against the bottom of the boat or against a convenient tree or post.

A NEW WAY to keep shrimp bait straightened out, in steelhead fishing, is to use a sharpened match stick or round toothpick. After uncurling the boiled shrimp, stick the match or toothpick through it endwise. Then, after making a slight cut underneath the shrimp toward the tail end, take an ordinary steelhead leader with a treble hook and insert the hook into the cut.

ARE your leaders and gut strands kept in a dark compartment? Are they wrapped in blue or black paper, or in a chamois leader case? Do you keep them where it is cool, away from the pipes of the heating system? If not, you’d better see to them before it’s too late.

INTENSIVE coöperation between boatman and angler is necessary to insure success—a fact which most fishermen, but few captains and mates, realize. Frequently it is the captain who is remiss, but more often it is the mate whom the angler must rouse to a sense of his duties and a sensibility of his surroundings.

Question: I have some deer feet which I’d like to make into a gun rack. Can you tell me how to cure, reënforce, and mount them? — M. B., Ontario. Answer: Soak the deer feet, if they have dried stiff, until the leg skin is perfectly soft. Dissolve a little borax in the water and place the receptacle in a cool place.

MAJOR CHAS. ASKINS
A GOOD mechanic, it always seemed to me, should make the best wing-shot, but very often he does not. His vision and his brain, having been trained to concentrate on small things close to his eyes, do not work well on birds passing at 50 yd. Without special training he doesn’t know whether his mark is 40 yd. away or 50, and whether his lead is 4 ft. or 10.

It breaks by pressure on a lever ahead of the trigger guard, and has twisted barrels marked “Parker Bros., Meriden, Conn., Pat’s 1870-76.” I wonder if there are many of these old guns left and how much one cost when new?

RECENTLY I wanted some full-jacketed ammunition for my Savage .300 rifle. I intended using it on coyotes which had been unusually numerous in this section of Colorado. None of the ammunition dealers from Steamboat Springs to Craig regularly stock any loads other than the mushrooming type, which, generally speaking, makes sieves of the hides of coyotes shot at our usual ranges in this country.

YOUNG TOM lived quite a while ago, as measured by a man’s lifetime. When Gen. Custer and his men were massacred in 1876, the boy was just about old enough to read the headlines in the paper. Maybe that fired his imagination a little more-he meant to be an Indian fighter.

COMES an item from Illinois about a new skeet stunt. It seems Gus Portman, president of the Peoria Skeet and Gun Club, started out to see how fast he could shoot at 100 skeet targets. Two loaders (they call them gillies in England) passed him guns, and with their help Mr. Portman succeeded in shooting at the 100 targets in 6 minutes and 42 seconds, breaking 80.

Question: I have a setter pup 11 months old, that seems to have a good nose. When I take him to good pheasant cover, he will point for about a minute, sometimes as far as thirty feet from the pheasant; then he will rush it. When the pheasant flies up he will chase it a little way, come back, and smell the ground excitedly.
