Your editorial on the proposed $1 “wildlife stamp” to be required of all persons fishing, hunting, or trapping on national forests covers only half of the need. The stamp should cost $2, with half the money to be spent for improvement and enlargement of camping facilities in the national forests.

School did not interfere with Bruce Scharf’s interest in the outdoors. “Most of the time,” he says, “I looked out the window and dreamed of high mountains and fast rivers.” He did learn one “scientific fact”: Fish bite better on school days than on Saturdays.

Never-say-die Moose
Congratulations Were Premature
[no value]
[no value]
O. N. Brown
How tough can a moose be? Sportsmen who have hunted the big, hump-nosed deer in the Canadian woods will testify eloquently to his hardihood and courage. And he’s a truculent brute, too, during the rut—ready for a quarrel with man or beast. Many a hunter has had a dangerously close brush with an enraged bull.

Fairfax Downey
Since you may not have heard the news, I am happy to announce that the law for conservation of wild games has been repealed. It was, of course, high time. Wild games had been so abundant that the need for their protection was long past. For years they had been carrying away little children, whose sturdy constitutions enabled them to recover.

THE TOUGHEST PART OF DEER HUNTING
Getting a buck back to camp is a hard, perhaps dangerous, job. A hunter who’s done it many times lists right—and wrong—methods

BEN EAST
The day I killed my first buck I learned two important lessons about deer hunting. I learned that when your deer is down and dressed and you’re ready to start back to camp with him, the fun comes temporarily to an end. And I also learned that of all the ways to get a deer out of the woods, the toughest—but wait a minute.

Just two guys with champagne tastes and beer pocketbooks. That describes Earl Nott and me, all right. But it also describes a lot of other hunters—men with a deep-seated yen to get out in real wilderness country after such trophies as Rocky Mountain goats, men who suffer from pernicious anemia of the wallet and have become reconciled to the fact that they’ll never hang that coveted head on the wall.

CHESTER CHATFIELD
A large number of unhappy hunters think that snow geese: (a) are possessed of telescopic vision that enables them to spot a gunner no matter how well hidden; (b) are endowed with built-in timing systems which tell them exactly when legal shooting hours start and stop; (c) are just too blamed smart.

To most men he’s the king of beasts. But to some, at least, he’s just a big, overrated cat, with little to commend him but size and awesome appearance. Actually, both the admirers and detractors of the African lion are right. Felis leo is a courageous beast, afraid of nothing.

A friend of mine from the Midwest was walking down Fifth Avenue in New York City with me not long ago when we happened to pass a man in a Marine-green uniform. “Who is that guy?” my friend asked. “A state trooper ?” “No,” I said. “He’s the game warden for Manhattan Island.”

This is written for my Uncle Peter, who isn’t around any more because last summer his bum heart, which had made him hang up his .30/30 and his grouse gun a good many years ago, finally conked out on him. But he read OUTDOOR LIFE every month for as long as I can remember, and maybe somehow he still gets to read it.

Take my word for it, if you try to tell the average big-game hunter how much better off he’d be hunting groundhogs, he’s apt to do one or all of several things. He’ll attack you with a butterfly net, make slighting references to your ancestry, or tell you where to go.

Yet when Lloyd Conger settled back in my favorite old lounge chair that February evening, touched a match to his cigarette, and commenced to expound on the virtues of Nebraska trout fishing—even I, who generally am a sucker for the most outrageous angling yarns, voiced prompt and vehement skepticism.

More than twenty years have passed since the urge for free land first drew us into the Peace River country of British Columbia. It was with high hopes that my brother-in-law Bill, my brother Cece, and I filed homesteading claims. We had always lived and worked on farms or ranches and thought we knew about all there was to know, but the Peace River country taught me that you never do know how much you don’t know.

For me, necessity turned out to be the mother of a hobby—a mighty fascinating hobby. For years I’d been lugging my .300 H. & H. Magnum rifle over the Northwest and quite a hunk of Canada. Field carrying, of course, was necessary. But I grew mighty tired of having that heavy rifle slung across my back when I was in the saddle.

Nine tenths of all rifle shooting is very simple. All the rifleman has to do is to put his sights on what he wants to hit, hold steadily, then get off his shot without disturbing his aim. If the rifle is correctly sighted and sufficiently accurate, if he can ignore trajectory (which must be taken into consideration in the case of a long shot), and if he doesn’t have to figure lead (as he would on running game), that’s all there is to it.

Sometime you may want to make a hole in a belt or piece of leather when you haven’t a punch of the proper size handy. You can do a neat job with a steel knitting needle—or even a wire nail—heated red-hot.

Question: What is the meaning of the terms, “automatic,” “semi-automatic,” and “autoloading”? Is there a pistol made that will fire a full clip when the trigger is pulled and held? — Z. S. Heinrich, Mich. Answer: A true automatic—such as a machine gun—fires, ejects, reloads, and repeats the cycle as long as the trigger is held back.

Lee O. Bloomer
Every hunter has heard tales of buck deer locking antlers in their battles during the rutting season, and remaining hopelessly entangled until both die. But only rarely does anyone stumble onto such an occurrence, and even more rarely does he happen to have a camera along.

Every squirrel hunter has faced the problem—how to make a bushytail move around from the far side of a tree, so you can get a shot at him. If you have a partner along, of course, there is no problem. One of you merely need move to the far side of the tree and make a noise while the other gets ready to shoot.

Dr, ROBERT A. STEELE
Ever try sleeping in your car? In an automobile with normal seats and upholstering it is a backbreaking experience. But one day 3 years ago, while cleaning out the old two-door sedan, I made some measurements and discovered that there was a stretch of 6 ft. 3 in. from the back of the front seat to the back of the trunk.

The Windermere district, in the Rocky Mountains of southeast British Columbia, is famous for its big-game hunting. It is doubtful, however, that the region has ever seen a more dangerous kill than the one made last winter by Joe Jimmy Neass, a well-known guide.

Despite the fact that I myself do not go for bolt-action shotguns, they do have their place in the scheme of things. Since they are inexpensive to manufacture, they are cheap. Hence they are serviceable for potshooting on a rough trip, for use around the farm, and for the lad who cannot afford a more expensive weapon.

That article by Jack O’Connor on patterning the shotgun (in the August issue) certainly has opened the eyes of some of my sportsmen friends. Most of them had never tested their guns on paper targets, largely because they didn’t know how to go about it and also because they wouldn’t know what results to look for if they had.

Southern hunters complained bitterly about the scarcity of squirrels—their most popular game animal—during the 1949-50 season. Did illegal gunners, disease, predators, or insecticides kill off the plentiful populations? Are there even fewer squirrels to hunt this fall?

RAY BERGMAN
The muskellunge, an excellent gamefish, is not widely distributed. For that reason, a large proportion of anglers never get a chance at one. Often it would involve an expensive trip to the Northern lake country or to Canada, and not everyone can manage it.

Question: Three years ago I started fly fishing with a cheap rod—9 ft., 5½ oz.—and a D-level line. Now I’d like to get a better outfit. I fish mostly from a boat, and only for panfish, so I’d like a lighter rod. What size do you suggest? What tapered line?

Summer is not the only practical time to camp. You can live quite comfortably in a tent during the fall and winter months if you select your equipment wisely and manage it well. This fact is demonstrated by hunters, trappers, ice fishermen, explorers, and others whose business or recreation takes them to wilderness country during cold weather.

Gee, but I’m proud! Here I am, 14 years old, and I’ve shot my first deer! Dad and my big brother were both a year older when they got their first muleys, so let me brag a little. It was on a Sunday afternoon last November, and warm for that time of the year, when dad suggested that he and I drive up into the hills back of Gardiner, Mont., and sight in his new .270 Winchester.

Chop Firewood Safely

Gardiner Hale
A piece of firewood that flies into the air when hit with the ax can inflict painful, even dangerous, injuries. You can avert such an accident, though, by using a pair of forked branches (as shown in the drawing) to hold the wood as you cut it. Spike the forks to the chopping block or drive their long ends into the earth.

A roller on your auto-top boat carrier can be worth its weight in gold. Here’s one you can make yourself, at a cost of about $3. Select a roller of straight-grained hardwood—a hoe handle, say—about 1½ in. in diameter and at least 1 in. longer than the boat is wide.

Question: When I hauled my boat out of the river last fall the bottom was covered with a thick growth of moss. I had a tough time scraping it off. Is there any preparation that repels such growths?—Paul E. Brock, Mo. Answer: Bottom paints used in salt-water service to prevent marine borers from getting into the wood will also help prevent the formation of fresh-water growths.

Often when upland-game hunters get together it’s not long before the discussion swings around to the relative merits of the pointer and the English setter. The man who owns a pointer is bound to say that his breed is faster in the field, learns quicker, is more tractable, and goes about the job of finding birds with greater concentration.

At high tide the lower reaches of central California’s Napa River spread out over many acres of mud flats, forming Napa Bay, one of the state’s most productive striped-bass fishing areas. No public roads give access to the bay. You must procure a boat from one of the numerous boathouses that sprawl along the Vallejo water front, or at Dutton’s Landing on the east side of the river, near the Vallejo-Napa highway, or from the Cutting’s Wharf resorts on the west side of the river near the Napa-Sonoma highway.

Reindeer, introduced into Alaska in 1902 to provide food and clothing for the natives, increased to more than 2,000,000 within 25 years. Ten years ago their number was estimated at 500,000. Now they have dwindled to about 50,000. According to A. B. (Cot) Hayes of Anchorage, Alaska, who has spent many winters in the far north as traffic manager for Northwest Airlines, Alaskans are now wondering how much longer this European and Asiatic cousin of the North American caribou will last.
