Editor Outdoor Life
I read with interest A. J. Lampard’s suggestion of a chain letter to promote the idea of conservation, and your editorial on the same subject. Did you ever try to get club members to help with some project your club was promoting? We have a club of approximately 1,000 members, and I can count on my two hands the number that you can depend on for help.

The archers are all aquiver over a letter from Charles Pohl of Jackson, Mich., in “What’s on Your Mind?” for January. Contending that more deer are wounded and left to die by bow-and-arrow hunters than by men with firearms, Pohl said “something should be done to make archers be sure they have a perfect shot before they let fly an arrow.”

Jack Speilmacher is a man of very positive preferences—as you’ll discover when you read his article, “Starvation Rams,” in this issue. One of them is for American food, another is sheep hunting. The Mexican trip, which he describes so vividly, was his second encounter with hard-to-get rams.

RICHARD H. PHILLIPS
On opening day I was on the Farmington River in Connecticut along with 1,000 other people. About half of them were boys not yet sixteen. And everyone was catching fish. But how? To a man, with worms. To a boy, too. Some had rods, some short stubby poles, some only a hand line and sinker.

The train rolled east along the Lake Superior shore from Nipigon. After Heron Bay the sun rose brightly and lit the wilderness beyond the tracks of the Canadian Pacific Railway. It was late May and most of the Ontario lakes were wide open, though winter lingered in some iced-up bays.

After a long, tough climb Cefarino, my Mexican guide, and I stood on the highest peak of the Las Mochis range, in the harsh, hot Sonora desert of northwestern Mexico. To the west we could see the brilliant blue of the Gulf of California. It was broken here and there by the white line of a beach, but mostly our view was cut off by high, sharp ranges very much like the one on which we had been hunting.

Confessions of a SKUNK HUNTER
A gay, nostalgic yarn about a boy, a dog, and a scented quarry. It’s as pungent as burning leaves, and it recalls days when the lure of sport and profit raised many rural lads to odorous fame

MARTY THORNTON
When I was a boy in New England I was a skunk hunter. And now each autumn when the pungent fragrance of burning leaves fills my nostrils, I find myself besieged by vivid memories of another odor. . . . In those days pursuit of the skunk for its fur and oil brought both sport and profit to many a country lad.

DON'T FEAR SNAKES... RESPECT THEM!
As director of the famous Reptile Institute at Silver Spring, Fla., the writer probably handles more poisonous ones than any other man in the world. Here he tells you how to avoid them while hunting, fishing, or camping—and what to do if you’re bitten

E. ROSS ALLEN
Are you afraid of snakes? If one is found in your camp, are you consumed with a frantic desire to kill it, whether the snake is poisonous or not? This fear is unnecessary because, compared with the number bitten, few people actually die from snake bite.

BASS from unfished water
When two men get together for two hours of fishing, for the first time since the war, it’s up to the host to come through. But it takes a bit of doing, if the guest wants to use a fly rod and conditions seem to be all wrong!

Some fish technicians contend you can’t fish out a bass or bluegill lake. The harder water is fished, they say, the better the fishing—except in the case of trout. Well, maybe they’re right. I live beside a small lake, covering hardly more than fifty acres and lined with a score of cottages.

No story in all the annals of the outdoors is more colorful than the long and—thanks be!—unfinished story of American waterfowl hunting. It extends far back into the shadowy past. Scientists excavating the Lovelock Cave in Nevada twentyfive years ago unearthed duck decoys of tule (a large bulrush) which the Indians made long before Columbus was born.

LION... BY A TAIL
That cougar didn’t want any part of a zoo. He ran like the wind, back-tracked, circled, and slapped one of the dogs silly in a bold attempt to outwit hunters who hoped to take him alive

The lion we were after, everyone agreed, was smart, cagy, and as full of tricks as an old-time medicine man. But—if we could catch up with him—we were going to take him alive! Maybe . . . A rancher who had stopped by our camp shook his head doubtfully when we told him our plans.

E. G. CLAYTON
Want to own a landing net that all your angling friends will envy—the kind you just can’t buy over the counter, and wouldn’t part with for $25? The answer is to make it yourself; it can be done if you know your way around a workbench, take your time, and go to some pains to search out just the right materials to give that custom-made look.

After four weeks in the Rockies tailing mountain goats and bighorn rams from one 10,000-foot pinnacle to another, sleeping in icebox boudoirs, and enduring a steady diet of goat shanks, I was ready to go home. I looked forward to putting my hunting gear in moth balls and subsiding into a wheel chair stuffed with invalid cushions.

JOE MEARS
Everett Setzer, chief of police in South Pasadena, Calif., is as sociable as he is fond of fishing. He could never quite figure out how to take along all his pals until he remodeled a bus into a rolling week-end cabin. Setzer’s “sportsmobile” is a 1941-model bus he bought at a bargain when it was retired in January, 1948, after 274,000 miles on the Los Angeles—San Diego run.

I Saw a Black Bear and a Wild Boar Fight it Out!
Trouble on the Ridge
[no value]
[no value]
Elbert Wilkey
Hunters and guides in the mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina have often argued as to whether a black bear will voluntarily attack one of the wild “Rooshian” boars that roam those parts—and as to which would emerge the victor, assuming the animals were fairly evenly matched for weight.

Red Fox, Deer Killer
[no value]

[no value]
Ben East
The red fox has been charged with plenty of crimes as a predator, but not many sportsmen would list him as a deer killer. Nevertheless, on occasions he attacks and probably succeeds in killing young fawns! I first heard from an old woodsman, many years ago, of the fox's brazenness in trying to get himself a meal of venison.

Don't ruin your fishing hat by sticking flies through it and then tearing a hole in it every time you remove a fly. With a needle and linen thread, put a basting around the hat as shown, using a ¼-in. stitch. A fly can be inserted in each stitch and removed easily.

HI SIBLEY
For breakfast we had a panful of bluegills fried with bacon—sweet, succulent white meat sheathed in golden brown. The fish were caught just a few steps from the house and from an easy-chair. We might have had catfish or bass had they taken the hook first, or frogs' legs, and we can have them as often as we wish because we fish in our homemade pond, and the stock has multiplied enormously in the three years since I built it.

F. Brady
Even the best fisherman lets himself in for a ducking now and then. When this happens, the greatest inconvenience is a wet wallet with soggy money, driver’s license, and cards. Avoid this by getting a waterproof plastic bag at the war-surplus outlet store and putting your wallet inside.

R. A. Jenkins
Since most dough baits dissolve after being in the water only a few minutes, many catfish, carp, and buffalo fishermen wonder how old-timers keep these soft baits on their hooks. The answer is simple. When making up this kind of bait, add an egg to each cup of dough, and then mix thoroughly.

Some time ago August Miller of Ohio sent me some information on the bagworm, and I never got around to using it until now. Since I have never tried to gather the worms myself, I am merely passing on the dope as I received it. “The cocoon of the bagworm is well known in the eastern United States, being found throughout the summer and fall on many common shade trees and particularly on evergreens of the cedar and arborvitae group.

HAZEL ROSS GADDY
At the time of the full moon in October, great wedge-shaped flocks of Canada geese cut their motors and glide down toward a man-made pond in North Carolina. It is journey’s end after a long trip from the northern breeding grounds. They cup their wings and come in for a graceful landing—and a five-month sojourn at one of the most unusual wildfowl sanctuaries in the nation.

Fishing the Meadow Brook

Robert T. Wright
Although I’ve read an awful lot of trout yarns since I passed the bent-pin stage, as a conservative estimate I’d say that fully 90 percent of them deal solely with the clear, swift, forest-and-mountain type of water. Very few fishing stories tell of the murky, meandering little meadow brook which wanders aimlessly through some farmer’s pasture.

Nothing I know of is calculated to embarrass a citizen who is a pretty good shot more than to pull down on a relatively easy target, squeeze off—and then never touch a hair. The chap who does something like that before witnesses is in a tough spot.

One of the major rumors of the 1948 big-game season was that .30/06 ammunition was short because the loading machines were busy turning out hulls for the Army. According to loading-company officials with whom I have talked recently there’s absolutely nothing to it.

For a family group, or a couple of fellows who like the woods and water and are content with the simple things of life, a houseboat of the common scow type can provide more real enjoyment than any other kind of boat or any other mode of weekend living.

Here’s a dreamboat that developed from the drawing board of J. A. Emmett, Boating editor of OUTDOOR LIFE. Detailed plans and specifications for the 19-ft. shallow-draft houseboat were published in our December, 1947, issue. The craft was built from the plans, with slight modifications, by E. C. Bowers Sr. of Kalamazoo, Mich., and he had it transported to the Tahquamenon River, near Lake Superior.

Dual-purpose service is provided by a chemical which can be brushed over aluminum in an extremely short time—from 1 to 5 minutes. Besides preventing corrosion, it will anchor paint which is to be applied to a bright or unfinished aluminum boat or canoe.

Steve Benedict
Did you know that your propeller can serve as a pump for cooling your motor? This “poor man’s pump” is widely used by commercial watermen, especially with automobile engines in boats. It works best when the engine is coupled directly, without a reverse gear.

Question: To what degree will the speed and handling of my 15-ft. outboard boat be affected by the addition of a cabin?—Jim Ford, Ky. Answer: While the boat’s speed will certainly be reduced, the effect on its handling will depend on the size and type of cabin you have in mind.

This tasty concoction can take the place of both bread and dessert. 2 cups prepared biscuit flour ⅓ cup sugar 1 beaten egg 1 cup milk 1 cup cooked apples 1 tsp. cinnamon or nutmeg ½ cup peanut butter Mix all ingredients together. If apples are watery, use less milk so a medium-heavy muffin batter results.

Should you train your own gun dog? By all means! Of course, if your time is so limited that you can’t do justice to the job you’ll need the services of a professional trainer. But, if you do it yourself, you’ll discover the results are pleasantly apparent, the labor (if it can be called that) is thoroughly enjoyable, and the satisfaction is rewarding.
