KENNETH MURRAY has divided his time between two very dissimilar occupations — making things clear to people and mystifying them! The making-clear part is illustrated by his article in this issue, “Make Yourself a Landing Net”—one of the most lucid, complete, helpful, and clearly illustrated “how-to-do” articles we’ve seen in a long time. The mystification part refers to the fact that he formerly was a professional magician!

BERRIES are bait for bear: Bert Ware, Aurora, Me., went out to pick blackberries this last summer, found eight bears—big, medium, little—there ahead of him. Before meeting broke up, Bert had three bears and berries too . . . While on bears, a bow to the Kodiak Bear, 4-page weekly newspaper published weekly by officers and men of Fort Greely, Alaska.

EDITOR Outdoor Life
TODAY an article appeared in a local newspaper which has me so boiling mad that I just have to let off steam, and your columns seem about the best place to do it. The writer of this piece starts out with the “news” that meat is going to be scarce this winter.

CHAS. ASKINS JR.
SHOOT elk in New Mexico?” I was openly dubious. “Shucks, George, you don’t have enough elk in the whole state to make a hunt worth while. Besides, I’m betting they’re as tame as barnyard cows.” George shook his head stubbornly, assuring me that not only were there plenty of elk in the Canyon of the Shuree, but that they were exceedingly wild.

IN THE half light before sunrise the long pier throbbed with activity. Bluejackets and Coast Guard men took the familiar waterfront scene in their stride, but many of the uniformed soldiers faced a new and exciting experience. A lot of them had never smelled salt air before, nor felt it blowing damply against their faces. Names were called out.

A DOZEN little bobwhites strut about in noonday brightness, cheeping contentedly in the warm, velvet-soft air. One scratches half-heartedly in search of an insect, another settles in a hollow for a lazy sun-and-dust bath. . . . And the spell is broken!

THE duck season started off like a million dollars. Opening day found tens of thousands of canvasbacks, mallards, pintails, widgeons, and other popular wildfowl resting on the ponds, lakes, coastal sloughs, and rivers of California.

YOU never know what a cup of coffee and a pair of doughnuts will lead to.

Directly across the road reared Sam Cahoon’s wholesale fish market and behind it the masts of half a dozen deep-sea fishing draggers.

PROFESSIONAL guides hear some mighty funny (and I mean peculiar, not ha-ha) stories when the year’s crop of anglers descend upon the high lakes for their annual two weeks of fishing. I wouldn’t discourage them for the world. They’re entitled to their ideas.

ALL my life I've been a sucker for doing things the hard way. Ordinary methods aren't good enough for me; in order to get any fun out of something, I've got to make it as difficult as possible. Every April, for example, I go trout fishing in a little brook that’s so fished out nobody else ever bothers with it.

PACKING your own on foot is bound to get more and more fashionable, in these carless times, for hunters, fishermen, and all campers. Here's an ingenious idea from Fred G. Hines, California pack hiker and angler whose trips have been pictured in these pages before —a roomy, easy-to-erect, two-man tent, weighing six pounds or less, each piece of which serves other needs on a hike.

MacFarlane, a New Brunswick ranger. Happening upon a young black bear in the woods, MacFarlane reported it to French Canadians in a near-by settlement who came and got the prize.

THERE’S nothing novel about a deer jumping; every hunter has seen all too many of them soar high over a windfall out of sight just when he’d like them to stand still. But when a full|grown doe will leap a five-foot bar on command, and also play harness and saddle horse, that’s a different story.

NO, THIS isn't a goofy stunt. It’s a practical way to save waterfowl from a peculiar wartime hazard—pools of crude oil, from ships sunk offshore, which float into tidal waters and clog the feathers of migrating ducks so that they quickly drown.

TROUT may come and bass may go, but the catfish—favorite of tot and totterer—is waiting for the hook in many a mud-bottomed stream, winter or summer. So this is as good a time as any to demonstrate a useful art: skinning the cat. Not the acrobatic stunt every American kid performs on lowhanging branches, but the equally difficult trick of peeling that tough, rubbery pelt from a catfish.

JACK O'CONNOR
A COVEY of quail bursts from the high stubble and heads for the jack oaks a hundred yards or so away. To the hunter on the left they come up with tremendous speed. Frantically he tries to follow them, but he cannot, and in desperation he fires twice without getting so much as a feather.

Rabbit Fur Shortage

[no value]
WILD rabbits have come to the front because of wartime needs. There is a shortage of pelts, used in the manufacture of felt hats, owing to marked curtailment in rabbit-skin imports. Furthermore, the fur trade, by its demands for rabbit skins to make fur coats and trim cloth coats, has further reduced the hatters’ supplies of fur for felt.

Debunking the Dime Test for Choke
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
John F. Tyler
YEARS ago, when America was young and muzzle-loading shotguns were the vogue, the choking or constriction in the bore of the barrel was invented to guide and converge a shot charge at the target. And because this constriction not only did just that, but added to the velocity to some extent, everyone who went afield for sport or hunted wildfowl for the market wanted not only a choked gun but the fullest of chokes at that.

Harold T. Gilbert.
ONE thing leads to another. You start out with a group of sportsmen in a “bull” session in a smoke-filled room. Talk gets around to a clubhouse—that spot on Uncas Pond in the thick woods would be ideal. There are still some big bass in the pond—and fine rabbit hunting in the surrounding brush.

CONGRATULATIONS, old man; you made a dandy shot. You hit that deer (or moose or elk) square in the heart, and he only ran 50 yd. before he fell. Nice shooting, and you’ve reason to feel proud. Sure, you can ease up a bit now. But don’t completely relax!

THE mud hen, or coot, is not highly regarded as a game bird, but he makes a darn tasty dish. Get a few, next time out, and try these recipes. Cut meat in 1-in. pieces, salt, pepper, and dip in flour. Brown in fat. Add 2 cups water, chopped parsley and chopped onion, and cook slowly for about an hour.

RAISING wild-turkey chicks to majestic gobblerhood really is not hard to do, if you will be very particular about certain things. But if you neglect one of these fundamentals, all your birds are likely to die. Naturally, the first thought that occurs to you is this: Where would I get eggs of a pure wild strain?

SOME bass and trout fishermen will read no farther than the title of this piece. That’s all right. No article can be for everyone. This one is for those who happen to live where there are no aristocratic trout, salmon, or bass, and also for those who love the outdoors so much that information about any fish, no matter how lowly, provides interesting reading.

IT WAS one of those days you read about—warm and clear, with the fish jumping—when we Marines headed our motor whaleboat for Katlian Bay. It was our first Alaskan fishing trip when it wasn’t raining. Breaking fish became more numerous just above Old Sitka, so I slowed the boat down to trolling speed and rigged my fly rod.

TO KEEP nightwalkers for bait I use washtubs, as they are easy to handle. I get leaf mold that is well rotted and very damp (or soak it with water if it’s dry) and mix it with an equal amount of rich loam, then put this mixture in the tubs and dampen it slightly with water.

AVOID being a onelure man. It is a temptation to get in that category when you have had consistently good luck on a particular lure or fly, but in years of fishing I’ve yet to find one artificial—or live bait for which has always been tops. If someone else is getting fish and you are not, the reason is either that you’re fishing wrong or have the wrong lure—or a combination of both.

IT MEANS something, these days, to be able to go out to the end of a jetty or pier and pull in an 8-lb. fish—one that’s good eating too, And as if that isn’t enough, a fish that strikes like a demon and trades punches with you. I give you old ugly-puss—Tautoga onitis, the Atlantic blackfish.

BACK in the not-so-far-distant past, abundant car transportation used to put far-away fishing and boating waters within easy range. Lakes 100 mi. off were easily reached for weekends, while men keeping boats at some water point perhaps 25 mi. away thought nothing of driving over to use them for an evening’s run.

Question: My English pointer, 2½ years old, has been hunted for two seasons, and is now learning to retrieve. Would it spoil her if I took her dove hunting in order to train her further in retrieving? I’ve been told that with so much fast shooting she’d lose her interest in hunting pheasants and quail and would just watch me.
