Editor Outdoor Life
When my family moved from the city to the country 4 years ago, I was 18 and knew nothing about hunting. It wasn’t long before I took up the sport, and to make a long story short I was a game-law violator—one of the worst.Then I began reading OUTDOOR LIFE. Through your stories and the Conservation Pledge I began to realize what hunting was for.

Bert Williams, who ran an angling resort at Fishtrap Lake, in east-central Washington, used to tell his campers, “Kill the rattlers, but leave the bull snakes alone. They cost me money.” When the rattlers increased around the lake to such an extent that they were running the place, Bert had imported a lot of bull snakes to kill off and keep down the poisonous breed.

Then the dust and debris flew! It was an indistinguishable object that rolled and tumbled and leaped into the air. So fast and furious was the battle that we could not follow the moves, until, as suddenly as it had started, the fight was over. Nothing moved but the dust and shredded leaves that settled slowly to the ground.

My career,” writes C. R. Snow, "has been largely a matter of trying to avoid a white-collar job and a cubbyhole in a city.” In this laudable ambition he has succeeded remarkably well. After the first World War, in which he served as a lieutenant colonel in France, Snow went to the West Coast and worked five years at surveying and railroad location for logging.

My wife and I had been out for eight days on a deer-hunting and camping cruise along the 365-mile shoreline of Shasta Lake in the mountains of northern California. This morning we had been cruising along for about an hour when Dolly (who was official lookout) cried, “There’s a buck!” I cut the boat in to shore, with a little hogback between me and the deer, and cautiously crept around until I finally spotted the head of a lovely buck.

We decided to tow the deer (as was) to a place where we could beach him. So I started the motor and light-heartedly we proceeded on our way. This, however, was too easy. After about five minutes, as we were nearing our goal, Mr. Deer came back to life and decided to get in the boat with us.

He was a hard worker, the serious little man I saw casting an ineffectual fly on the Yellowstone River last summer. The big cutthroat trout were taking, too—but out in mid stream, and he was not reaching them. He needed a bit of help, this fellow who had come a long way for this famous fishing.

Men pay a price to see the unspoiled and untrod places of earth. I was paying it that July day by clambering over fallen logs, toiling through waist-high thimbleberry tangles, slipping on hidden rocks, and worming around the cluttered edges of beaver ponds.

The first big snowstorm of approaching winter was hovering sullenly overhead, filtering dim daylight down to the fog-wreathed crags east of Sun Valley, Idaho. Each gnarled mahogany stood hushed and eerie as a blurred ghost, with twisted arms outstretched in supplication against the cold.

TOM ALLEN
To the sportsman, the ruffed grouse is as much a part of the New England scene as the boiled dinner. His drumming throbs across the green hills in spring, and the flash of his wings glints through the autumn-flecked woods. Along with the wild turkey and the deer, this bird played an important part in the early history of the land, and many a Pilgrim Father smacked an appreciative lip over the well-cleaned bones of a grouse dinner.

Bud Jackson
Wild game is tops in meat. If it weren’t, it couldn’t take the treatment the average hunter gives it and still be fit to eat. If you don’t believe it, just try handling domestic meats the way game is usually handled— and taste the difference! Take that Sunday-dinner chicken you got from the neighborhood butcher.

The icy midnight wind tore savagely at our reddened faces and watering eyes as we crunched through the deep, dry snow toward the ranch house. The chill had reached our marrow, and we ached in every muscle. Tired ? That’s no word for it. First of all, we’d done a day’s work back in Albuquerque, and then we’d driven more than 150 miles up to the Colfax County cattle country.

Lester J. (“Pop”) Dyer, principal of Calvin Coolidge Grammar School, Shrewsbury, Mass., once observed: “On opening day, it’s only natural for a youngster to want to go fishing for trout!” But truancy was against the rules, just the same, and it had to be licked. Dyer pondered and came up with a solution—a “sunrise derby.” He assembled his pupils and told them about it: “We’ll all go fishing on the first day of the trout season.

RAY BERGMAN
When you’re fly fishing for trout— particularly if you’re working a stream and wearing waders— you don’t want your clothing cluttered up with a lot of fly boxes you’ll never even open. Yet the chap who goes to the other extreme and tries to get along with only a sprinkling of flies, tucked in his hatband, is almost sure to find he doesn’t have the very ones he needs.

The green tide was moving in fast and the willow stick jutting from the water was getting wetter and wetter. A warm refreshing breeze sifted through the feathery cypresses on the bank and formed tiny whitecaps on the river. We were marking time, Tim and I, on the shore of Virginia’s Pamunkey River—waiting for the full tide so we could push into the marshes after sora.

Some people call the striped bass “poor man’s salmon.” That sounds catchy but I don't think it’s accurate. Old Roccus saxatilis, or line-sides, greenhead, or whatever it’s called can stand up for itself. And no one, rich, poor, or in between, who tangles with a striper will need to apologize for it.

Yet today such activities are commonplace in towns and cities from coast to coast—and there's a reason! The Pledge's thirty-word creed has provided an effective teaching instrument.

The most practical way to carry a canoe for any considerable distance is upside down on your shoulders. If you have to do a great deal of portaging, it is worth while to use a regular canoe yoke shaped to fit around your neck. But for the occasional carry, you can manage with two paddles lashed to the thwarts in fore-and-aft alignment as shown at the right.

Give me a small stream for early-season trout fishing. I mean a really small one, the kind that a trout angler usually passes up as being too insignificant for attention.

Kenneth V. Gordon
There’s probably no music in the world so sweet to an angler as the whir of a reel when a big fish takes out line in a stirring run. That’s happened to me time and time again, but I never fail to get a thrill out of it. The biggest kick of all, though, came when I was fishing in the Potomac River off Harpers Ferry, W. Va. I got a long run then, all right. However, it wasn’t made in water—but in the air! The Potomac near Harpers Ferry is quite shallow and full of ripples and small waterfalls.

Controversy over the extent of posting on Colorado’s trout waters— which ranged from guesses to exaggerated estimates—has been settled, finally, by a state Game and Fish Commission survey. The results flatly contradict uninformed critics who complained that posting is excessive.

J. A. EMMETT
The sportsman who wants sail power on a canoe cruise should choose a utility rig that’s simple, easily stowed, and conveniently handled. Those are the principal advantages of the one described here. It’s adapted from the new twin-sail arrangement used on sailing yachts that run for days before the trade winds.

April can provide some very good trout fishing provided you use natural bait whenever necessary. But let me warn the “once in a while” bait angler: Just using a worm or minnow isn’t going to insure a catch unless you know the game well or are very lucky.

Estimating Trout Weight

Don Vanderbeck
When you fish for brook trout and don't want to bother carrying a pocket scale, you can estimate the weight of the "good" fish you land by remembering that, on the average, a 12-in. brookie weighs about 1½ lb., a 15-in. fish about 1½ lb., and an 18-incher about 2 lb.

Speaking of scope sights, a 1X mounted on a shotgun can serve a very useful function. Last fall I was hunting with Bill Weaver, the scope manufacturer, and saw what he could do with his K-l. He took three Hungarian partridges on one covey rise, and if he missed a pheasant that got up within 35 yd.

Question: Can a 330 Weaver scope be mounted on my .270 Winchester Model 54 without altering its bolt handle?—H. H. Illing-worth, Saskatchewan. Answer : My recommendation is that you have the bolt handle altered and then mount that scope just forward of the safety.

The 5-lb. recording chronograph shown above is designed especially for reloaders and amateur ballisticians, and is said to enable determination of bullet velocity without mathematical calculations. It’s a one-man procedure, involving two screens that are a measured distance apart.

A gain you’re brought up short by a sign: “No Hunting.” The sun is already high; you’ve been tramping the country roads for miles. But not once have you been able to get into good cover. You’ve seen plenty of it and your hopes have risen time and time again.

Writes a reader: “I have a .30/06. How much does it kick?” That sounds like a simple question, but actually it is very tough to answer. The easy way would be to say that in a Model 70 Winchester rifle, the 180-gr. factory load would give 17½ foot pounds of free recoil, and the 220-gr.

Several times a week I get a letter from some taxpayer who has just purchased a rifle and is worried by the thought that every time he shoots the little beauty the barrel is just that much closer to being worn out. So he asks: how long will a barrel last?

Let’s lay down a few rules of thumb about barrel life : The higher the pressures and the greater the heat generated by the powder charge, the shorter the accuracy life of the barrel will be. Other things being equal, a .270 or a .220 Swift, with pressures of around 55,000 lb.

Wear in the barrel of a high-powered rifle first shows in the darkening of the lands at the throat when the bore is viewed from the breech end. Gradually this darkening, where the hot powder gases have literally melted the metal away, extends farther and farther up the barrel.

Many requests have come in (and by many I mean hundreds) for dope on the so-called “short” Mauser actions being sold in this country by various firms. They are NOT the beautiful little genuine Mauser Model 98 K-actions ( K stands for short), which will take nothing longer than the German 6.5 and 8 mm. K hunting cartridges or the American .250/3000, .300 Savage, or .35 Remington cartridges.

First thing to do with a brand-new tent is unroll it and check if the manufacturer forgot something. Chances are that all seams will be finished and all necessary ropes attached; but if anything was omitted, it is better to know now than when you’re 100 miles from home.

Hunting-camp cooks who keep a fire burning most of the time to warm the shack or cabin can use this idea to good advantage. When you boil meat, save the water and to it add scraps of leftover meat, also bones of game, domestic meat, or poultry. The larger bones should be cracked with an ax so all marrow is extracted.

When you’re accustomed to using milk freely at home, there’s no need to go without it in camp, even in wilderness regions. Just carry a supply of either the evaporated or dried types in the grub sacks. They are pure and nourishing, and when skillfully prepared are relished by most campers.

There’s nothing better than birch bark for kindling a quick fire in your camp stove. I go out each fall and gather a good supply of two kinds. First I get a shopping bag full of thin bark—the kind that peels off living white-birch trees. (Peeling it off doesn’t harm the tree.) And then I hunt for a fallen yellow birch whose trunk has rotted.

Question: How can I stain the logs of a cabin? They are in good condition but somewhat discolored.—W. F. Fairhurst, Mont. Answer : My own preference is for a 50-50 mixture of spar varnish and linseed oil. It’s effective if the peeled logs are not too badly discolored.

When you carry a boat atop your car, usually the craft is secured by a pair of lines leading to front and rear bumpers. To keep these lines taut, install a heavy ring (as shown) on each set of lines. Use links of a very heavy chain, or make the rings by bending ½-in.

Some gun-dog breeds have developed from a haphazard cross; others have been maintained almost as they existed originally. But some are made—and that’s the case of the German shorthair pointer. He was bred to fill a particular need and, judging by his performance in the field, the job was well done.

Question: How can I train a young cocker spaniel to be obedient only to me, and to shy away from other people?—ƒ. ƒ. Fischback. Wís. Answer: Your request is rather unusual, since most owners of cocker spaniels wish to overcome their natural reserve toward strangers and find it difficult to do so.

Forest tragedy. Earl Paget, guide, and Jonathan A. Chaffer, Rhode Island sportsman, heard loud noise while hunting deer in the New Brunswick woods late last season. Deer bounded out onto old logging road on which they were walking. On deer’s back clung a bobcat, struggling to bring quarry to ground.

We have sounded off on this subject many times, but a letter from an irate trout fisherman impels us to do it again. “The bloke who thought up the idea of using tin cans as containers for beer,” the letter begins, “may have conferred major benefits on the human race, but he overlooked one point.
