Here is something I discovered by accident, which every sportsman should know. It is generally believed that when a man in hip boots falls into deep water the boots get so heavy that they are likely to cause him to drown. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

Most appeals for the conservation of our natural resources deal with the problem from the point of view either of our country or of its sportsmen. There is certainly a good deal to be said for both approaches. Take OUTDOOR LIFE’S Conservation Pledge—“I give my pledge as an American.”

Bob court Rankin, and police reporter for the Cincinnati Enquirer since 1939 (less 42 months with the Army) says he knocks himself out 2 days a week dashing hundreds of miles north, south, east, and west to catch fish. Friends own some of the new paylake fishing ponds, and after visiting a few of those combination carnival, picnic, and family-reunion grounds he recovered sufficiently to describe them in his article in this issue, “It May Not be ‘Angling’—but It’s Fun!”

BRUSH BUSTER'S Ringnecks
I was really sticking my neck out—opening the pheasant season with an untrained dog. And hunting with two expert hecklers didn’t help to make things easier. But those smart guys soon changed their tune, for while Bingo busted through brush like a bull in a china shop, he ended by filling our bags to the legal limit

ELDON ROBBINS
Meet the world’s most optimistic pheasant hunter! He opens the season with a gun he’s never shot and with a dog that won’t hold point.” Allan gestured in my direction and there was a note of derision in his chuckle. I grinned sheepishly, shifted my new gun to my other hand, and took a firmer grip on Bingo’s leash.

There were four of us in the lounge of the Pullman car, riding through the mountains west of Philadelphia on a snowy January night, and the talk turned to fishing. We covered baits and fly patterns, fishing wet and fishing dry, rods and lines and leaders and a few other kindred subjects.

Current River glistened like a thousand diamonds in the Ozark dawn. Clear water tumbled past granite boulders, over gravel bars, and swept in a shining ribbon around Owl’s Bend, where it is joined by the lesser waters of Blair, Bloom, and Powder Mill Creeks.

Fifteen years is a long time to hunt one buck. Not that I was hunting a specific antlered grandpappy— for in fifteen years he’d have lost his antlers, his harem, and his life. But what I did want was to find and kill a buck in his bed. In short, I wanted to catch a buck napping, make a perfect stalk, and get in my killing shot while he still drowsed.

NISKA ELWELL
Big-game hunters must spend a lot of time between seasons thinking up new ways in which they can annoy their guides the next time they take the field. It would be impossible, in my opinion, for them to invent on the spot all the ingenious and sure-fire methods they employ to bring gray hair, ulcers, and chronic nervous disorders to the men who are supposed to assist and protect them when they go ahunting.

SPEREADING TROUT in White Water
Something new and unique in nautical designs—a craft that has a bottom like a sieve and a rubber doughnut secured along its sides. It looks odd—but it’s very useful for transferring legal-size trout from an Oregon hatchery to the swift McKenzie River

PAUL R. NEEDHAM
A strange craft, ten feet long, equipped with a rubber doughnut, and with holes bored in its bottom, made its appearance recently in the swift McKenzie River some thirty miles above Eugene, Oreg. It was attached by a line to a more conventional-type boat manned by three State Game Commission employees.

Have you ever stopped to think that a magazine such as OUTDOOR LIFE has ancestors just the same as you or I? In fact, some of those ancestors greatly influence the type of magazine published today. Of course the most outstanding forefather was the one which differed from the previous hand-written manuscripts in that it was printed from movable type.

Grizzly! There’s a word to stir the imagination of any red-blooded rifleman. The toughest and most courageous foe ever offered to the hunter in this country. And one of the shrewdest, too. Today you will have to travel many a mile to find him, but he’s still the cantankerous, unpredictable monster he was a hundred years ago.

Thanks to modern ammunition, today’s sportsman doesn’t have to worry about keeping his powder dry; but much of his other equipment may be damaged by excessive moisture. The recent war, especially the part of it that took place in the humid tropics, taught the importance of protecting everything, from monkey wrenches to delicate electronic equipment, against the moisture that causes corrosion, mildew, and other damage.

JACK O’CONNOR
A friend of mine who was prowling around some low hills last fall came upon the carcass of a magnificent buck mule deer that should have supplied around 150 lb. of prize meat and a grand trophy. No one would ever eat the meat, however, because it had rotted, and no one would mount the scalp and those beautiful antlers either, for the hair had slipped and the skin was decomposed.

This matter of how high to hold when shooting at long range with a .300 Weatherby Magnum is going to sound very strange indeed, but it works, not only for me, but for others who have shot that big cannon. With the 180-gr. bullet in front of 75 gr. of No. 4350 powder, the rifle is sighted in to hit the point of aim at 300 yd.

Even the wisest old crow can be captured with this trick. First get a few No. 1 steel traps—preferably of the underspring or jump style, since they can be more easily concealed. Then, in an area frequented by crows, find a pond, small stream, or spring hole which can be easily seen from the sky.

Last fall the duck shortage back-fired on the coot, or mud hen, especially in the Mobile Delta area of Alabama, where the bird is known as the poule d’eau (pronounced “pool doe”). Careful check along the causeway in that area showed that 43,000 coots were bagged as compared to only 5,000 ducks—or about nine coots to every duck.

Federal hunting regulations on woodcock may be relaxed next fall, if field reports that this popular migratory game bird of the Atlantic Coast is staging a comeback continue to be borne out. According to the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the number of occupied singing grounds at the start of the 1948 breeding season showed a healthy increase—amounting in some areas to more than 20 percent over last year’s figures—in eastern Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire.

The fish I am calling the pike perch has more monikers than a bank robber on the lam. In various sections of North America it goes under the names of wall-eye, wall-eye pike, jack salmon, blue pike, green pike, yellow pickerel, yellow pike, and perhaps a few others I’ve never heard of.

A wooden bucket makes an excellent storage container for live minnows. However, do not make the mistake of putting in too many of them. To keep the minnows in good condition, observe two simple precautions. Every other day pour into the bucket (from a height of several feet above it) a quart of water of about the same temperature as that within.

If you have trouble keeping minnow bait from floating out of the trap, fold a small piece of ordinary wire screen over the bait and thread a length of stovepipe wire through the fold. This seals the cage and keeps the wet bait from floating away.

Question: Can you tell me how I should go about refinishing my fly rod?—John Sanders, Utah. Answer: After removing the guides and tiptop, take off the old varnish with varnish remover. Rub down with rottenstone or powdered pumice and, when it is absolutely clean, give the entire rod a coat of varnish.

Designed for use on gusty days, new tapered leaders (9 and 12 ft. long) add power and distance, and are easier to straighten out, when cast into the wind. The monofilament product, of du Pont nylon, is made up with 2 and 3-ft. lengths of different test weights knotted together, and center balance is about one third of the distance from the tip of the line.

Peeling a perch isn’t difficult, and it sure makes the fish taste better when it’s cooked. First put the fish in the freezing compartment of your refrigerator. ( Or, if it’s wintertime, just leave it outdoors.) When it’s thoroughly frozen, leave it at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

The ideal way to display big-game heads, hide rugs, and mounted birds is under glass as museums do. But since this kind of protection is impractical in many homes, heads are often hung on walls, hide rugs laid on the floor, and birds placed on a stand.

These can be busy months for the man interested in boating. If he already owns a boat, he must decide if he is going to lay it up early or continue using it far into the fall. If he is thinking of getting a new boat from the factory, he should put his order in now to offset any possible delay in spring delivery.

When a small air-cooled engine with the usual flush base is to be installed in a flat-bottomed boat the bed should be designed to distribute weight and stress of vibration over several bottom planks. A bed which meets this requirement and is, at the same time, easily built, is shown in the sketches below.

A relatively low-priced utility skiff or runabout, 13½ ft. in length, has its flat bottom hollowed aft to give the exceptionally shallow draft, for this type, of 6 in. The 1½-horsepower air-cooled inboard is fitted with a reverse gear, and the propeller is protected by a metal shoe attached to the wooden skeg.

More than 1,000 miles off the proper migrating course between Louisiana and its arctic nesting grounds on Baffin Island, a blue goose recently showed up in a banding trap at Maine's Swan Island game refuge. Unlike the Canada geese which regularly visit the refuge and are easily tamed, the blue proved to be a tough fighter.

While I have always thought it wiser for a gun dog to live in a kennel rather than in his master’s home, in these days of “housing shortages” and space limitations, there is often no alternative. For such a situation to work out well, however, a few simple rules must be observed.

Question: I want to use my English shepherd as a watchdog. How can I train him to be vicious to strangers?—Robert Stiles, Ind. Answer: Simply keep your dog chained up all day and never show him any affection. It won’t be long before he will be biting people and you will be in trouble, but that seems to be what you want.—C.

Hybrid deer. Moot point among hunters for years has been whether black-tail and white-tail deer ever cross. It’s happened at least once. Buck killed illegally in Oregon recently was confiscated by State Police. Because type was strange, antlers and skull were sent to Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California, for identification.
