A Dog's World of Smell

J. B. M.
WHEN a retrieving dog points a second bird while holding the first one in his mouth, his feat is hard for us humans to understand, for we are wholly ignorant of the operations of a dog’s olfactory tract. I have seen my dog Pat coming in to me with a rollicking lope, happy as a dog can be, because he was bringing me in a bird.

THE remarkable thing about Roy MacIlrath’s life is that he ever kept still long enough to write “Will a Panther Attack?” He’s tried his hand at farming, hunting, commercial fishing, guiding, lumbering, railroading, trucking, steamboating, cattle punching, landscape gardening, flying, selling on the road, and real-estate speculation.

A BOBCAT weighing 42 lb. was killed near Cadillac, Mich., last winter. That's a lot of cat. But a bigger one was killed 5 years ago in Iosco County, Mich., according to Art Leitz, conservation officer, who weighed critter him self, and states it balanced scales at 62 lb.

EDITOR Outdoor Life
TOM GIBSON’S story, “Sir Rattlesnake,” was keenly interesting, particularly the part about the reptile’s tenacity to life. In my work, I’ve had to do considerable mounting of birds, animals, and snakes, and have observed the varying degree of muscular reaction which takes place in them, from several moments up to many hours after the coup de grace has been administered.

Maw Adams Finds the Mossbacks
In trout lures, as in human beings, the female of the species proves more deadly than the male

J. BERESFORD-WOOD
THIS is the yarn of a guy—it probably will fit a good many of us in some respects—who knew quite a few of the whys and wherefores of trout fishing, but who seldom made any outstanding catches until Maw Adams came into his life. If you’re acquainted with the Adams family at all, it’s probably Paw Adams you know, for Paw has quite a reputation in Michigan trouting circles.

CARL A. NORGREN
"SAY, I’ve lived in antelope country all my life, and I ain’t never yet seen a buck without horns." “Well, I’ve spent my life in antelope country, too, and I know dad-burned well that antelope do shed their horns!” And so the argument has gone, ever since the days of Sitting Bull, although naturalists are agreed that antelope shed their horns each year.

JOHN ALDEN KNIGHT
SINCE the beginning of time, fishing has been associated with luck. “Any luck?” or “What luck?” have become the standard forms of greeting when two anglers meet. The descriptive phrase “fishermen’s luck” has long been a byword signifying the results of ill-fortune.

SUZANNE K. JOHNSON
ON THE side of a little New Brunswick hill I first saw her —a big black bear. Her head and part of her body were hidden from me by a pile of old burned logs. She was not more than fifty feet away. My .303 carbine came to my shoulder and I waited impatiently, hoping the bear would move a little and give me a chance for a head shot.

"WHERE’LL we go tomorrow—Dublin Pond or Forest Lake?” Charlie asked, sandwiching his question between a couple of swigs of ice-cold beer. It had been hot, fishing that afternoon, an especially warm day for early June in New Hampshire, and you know how thirsty you can get.

He Makes Retrieving a Game
Maxwell Riddle, outstanding trainer, proves that a good dog won't shirk the job it loves

WALTER E. BURTON
WHEN a dog comes of good hunting stock and then, despite all your efforts, refuses to learn to retrieve, the reason may be downright stubbornness, bad previous training, or an innate dislike of dead game or birds. Harsh methods won’t get you anywhere, but there is a good chance of success if you try making a game of the training routine.

WHEN, in the spring, the air is warm and the water still cold, your boat has been put in order, and you just can’t stand being tied to the shore any longer, you can go fishing for mackerel. One of our best and most valuable food fishes, it should be more widely known as a fine game fish, also.

THIS is the story of a horse roundup that ended with roping deer. Either of them is no job for a weakling. When done native fashion in Mexico, each is a good short cut to the proverbial wooden overcoat. If you are curious to know how good a man you are, try both.

TO ANGLERS on the Delaware, Connecticut, and other Eastern streams, the shad is an occasional sporty interloper on the fly line. But in the Hudson, he's an industry, dating from Colonial times; and this year, as always, fishermen laid their nets in the very shadow of New York City to intercept the spring spawning run.

MICHIGAN'S longest river, the Muskegon, is famous for its rainbows, browns, wall-eyes, and smallmouths—and also for its guides, who con duct anglers on exciting downstream "floats." So on the eve of the trout season this year the town of Newaygo staged its first annual guides' meet, with thousands of spectators from Michigan and surrounding states. There were bait-casting contests, river races, tall-story competitions, spittin' derbies, and. . . well, you can see for yourself there was plenty of fun for all.

NOW, when a fellow sticks his chest out and says, “I’m a purist—I use the dry fly or nothing,” he’s sticking his neck out too. In other words, either he’s a fool, or he’s not really interested in catching fish. At least, that’s what Guy says, and I’ve known him long enough to trust his judgment, particularly when it comes to trout fishing.

CARL F. KAUFFELD
POISONOUS snakes are widely distributed over the United States. Wherever they exist there is danger of snake bite, however remote. Judging from authentic figures compiled for a period of several years, deaths from snake bite in the country average somewhere between 80 and 100 annually.

WILL A PANTHER ATTACK?
SOME OF THE THINGS YOU HEAR ARE PRETTY HARD TO BELIEVE, UNTIL THE EVIDENCE OF YOUR OWN EYES TEACHES YOU THAT NATURE, NOT MAN, MAKES THE RULES OF THE WILD
[no value]

ROY MaclLRATH
GENERALLY it’s believed that the American panther will not deliberately attack a man. In the main that belief is well founded. Yet there are exceptions. A few years ago I read of one that killed and devoured a thirteen-year-old boy in the state of Washington. The little fellow had been sent some distance from his home to get a team of horses.

Winnie never had a gun in her hand until five years ago.

AN IDEAL material for smoothing off your rod tip, when the line has worn grooves in it, is the little cloth strip coated with abrasive that a dentist uses in polishing fillings. If you have a dentist friend who is also a fisherman, he’ll probably give you a couple of strips and thank you for the tip.

"SWAP you this rod, reel, and line for that mallard there, Berk." Those words, spoken by a friend of mine, led me to a new realm of fishing fun. The mallard was one I’d mounted that fall, for when I’m not too busy tilling the soil of western Kentucky I do quite a bit of taxidermy.

WHEN you catch a trout you wish to keep, it’s best to clean it at once. After taking out the entrails and the gills, scrape the blood away from the backbone with your thumb nail. After this rinse the fish in cold water and then, before putting in the creel, wrap it in a piece of linen or cotton cloth kept for the purpose.

Question: Is there any way of connecting a bait-casting line and leader without having to cut off and waste line each time you fish?— W. S., Ohio. Answer: There is a way to save line by splicing a loop in the end, but this is not particularly satisfactory for bait-casting.

MAJOR CHAS. ASKINS
JUDGING from the queries I receive, “What rifle shall I get for deer shooting?” is one of the questions most on shooters’ minds. Sometimes I’m tempted to say, “Anything more powerful than a .22 Hornet, if you can hold well.” At that, some of the fellows wouldn’t indorse my exclusion of the .22, remembering the story of the mining man in Canada or Alaska who used to sit 20 yd. off the trail and, with a .22 rimfire rifle, take everything from deer to moose that came along.

A SHOTGUN enthusiast, E. M. Sweeley, of Twin Falls, Idaho, is usually ahead of fans and factories alike when it comes to new developments in shotguns. He is regarded as one of the best shotgun ballisticians in the country, and much that I have written has been founded on experiments he has carried on.

FOR two reasons, motor camping is one of the best ways to combine pleasure with travel. First is its economy. You don’t have to own a big, luxurious house trailer to enjoy the outdoors. And second, it’s fun for a family to live in a tent and to cook its own meals out in the open air.

MANY forest and mountain tragedies of the past could have been averted, and many long, difficult, and costly searches for injured or lost persons made unnecessary, if an easily remembered, quickly given, and universally understood outdoorsmen’s distress signal—something on the order of radio’s dramatic S O S—had been in general use.

THE STATE of Washington may be spared more than one serious forest fire this year through the energy and ingenuity of the Forestry Club of Washington State College, Pullman, Wash. To impress upon both college students and the general public the dangers of carelessness with cigarettes, campfires, and other fire hazards in the woods, club members devised and ran off their own "Forest Fire Prevention Week."

STATISTICS that tell a story can be quite interesting sometimes. Last month I had something to say about the procedure necessary for properly registering gun dogs. In checking and arranging data for that article I came across some figures that were surprising to me, and I think that you will consider them worth reading, because they seem to present a fairly accurate comparative picture of the popularity of a number of our best-known sporting breeds.
