ED ZERN
WE WERE up by Stump Mountain last fall and stopped in to see Old Man Whipple. He was in good form, as usual. "Bub," he bellered, "What kinda car’s that you’re drivin’?” “Nash Airflyte,” we said. “Thought so,” the old man snorted. “Well, by thunder, I’m opposed to it!” “Name something invented since 1900 that you aren't opposed to,” we said.

Below are fifteen groups of words related to the great outdoors. You have seen every word many times in OUTDOOR LIFE. In each group is one word that doesn’t belong there. Can you scan the list and pick out the alien words? An informed sportsman, active or armchair, should get twelve or more.

The first time I ever hunted Dall sheep—those beautiful snow-white rams with golden eyes and yellow horns—was up in the glaciers around the head of the White River, near where the southwest corner of the Yukon Territory is jammed right up against Alaska.

HARDY TREFZGER
Plan to hunt Alaska brown bears someday? Then listen to me. Perhaps you'll learn something—something that I thought I had learned after forty years of hunting and guiding in brown-bear country. Oh, I knew the score all right. I’ve been around the big bears long enough to realize that they are savage, unpredictable brutes.

I had hung my mouth open to speak when Ernest's warning gesture stopped me. He had that absurd little .22 revolver-thing cocked and ready. I swung around to cover a run-way at his left and we waited motionless. Here we were again, the old rivalry still intact, but today I had a real advantage—or thought I had.

The deer leaped from his bed almost at my feet. But as he slammed away through the dense stand of low scrub oak in headlong flight, all I could see of him was his big rack—and that only at the crest of each jump! For an instant disappointment gripped me, but then my spirits rose.

To see what is perhaps the most fantastic, death-defying fresh-water fishing any man can undertake, watch Erne St. Claire of Portland, Oregon, in action! Dissatisfied with landing only one Chinook salmon out of fifty hooked on his spinning tackle, he decided to fight the fish right in their own element, even though it meant following them through man-killing cascades, whirlpools, and rock-infested rapids.

The discovery of choke as a means of controlling shotgun patterns was one of the few really revolutionary developments in the history of the scattergun. Until choke was discovered, all barrels were bored true cylinder, a straight hole all the way through, as large at the muzzle as at the breech.

Question: I'd like to finish a rifle stock. Is it necessary to use a filler on the wood before applying linseed oil?—C. F. Rutherford, Md. Answer: Perhaps the best method is to first apply a coat of spar varnish. When it is dry, sand it right down to the surface, so that all the grain will be filled.

One of the best ways of doping the range when you see a big-game animal broadside is to compare its body thickness, from top of shoulder to bottom of chest, with something of known width. For instance, I have often used a 4-minute Lee dot in a 2½X scope for this purpose.

There are no hard and fast rules of behavior among wild animals. No hunter, however experienced, can forecast with complete certainty what an animal is going to do in a given situation. And of all the big game of the North American continent, the bear ranks easily as the most unpredictable.

According to tradition, buck fever is a good deal like German measles— it hits its victims young, then makes them immune for the rest of their lives. We are all familiar with the story of the lad who, upon seeing his first buck, gets the shakes so badly that it is impossible for him to pull the trigger.

Acontinued and needlessly loud clamoring for action on the mourning-dove situation indicates that most sportsmen still don’t know about the census. The dove census isn’t the total answer, but it certainly will help. In case you don’t know about it, rural mail carriers have combined hunting with toting the mail.

Head Shots on Big Game

[no value]
[no value]
Despite the fact that head shots often result in quick kills on big game, they are a good thing to lay off of as a rule. One reason is that the head-shot animal is usually a dreadful-looking sight, and if it is a trophy animal the head is ruined. More important, the head shot is fatal only if the bullet strikes the brain or comes very close to it.

The angler who considers panfish beneath his notice may be missing out on a lot of sport, as well as good eating. Perhaps he associates the little skillet-size fish only with the cane pole, which doesn’t permit a very sporty fight. But the advent of spinning tackle has opened new vistas in panfishing.

Joe Mears
The efficient panfish lure shown above is simply a triangular-shaped piece of yellow chamois skin impaled on a No. 8 or 10 fly hook. Dip the tip of the chamois in mercurochrome (or any bright stain or dye) to give it a bit of color. Secret of the lure is its motion in the water.

How to Dress a Fly Line
[no value]

Harold Mencken
Many good fly fishermen now use a floating line to fish wet flies as well as dry ones. By using a leader at least 6 ft. long when fishing wet, they get the fly down deep enough for it to be effective under practically all fishing conditions. A fly line that floats has several important advantages over one that sinks.

Should fishing for rainbow trout be permitted during the spawning season? Many correspondents have objected to the practice, particularly in New York State. I have always felt that such angling does no harm to the rainbow population, but to get an official opinion I wrote to the New York State Conservation Department.

A camp stove may not be so romantic as an open fire but under certain conditions it's more practical. A wood burner, for instance, produces plenty of heat even from a poor quality of timber and uses less of it. No other device available to campers is so effective and safe to warm cold, damp tents and to dry wet clothing.

You’ll get more satisfaction and comfort out of your log cabin if you plan some of its details before you start to build. Chinking is a case in point. You may dismiss it as a minor matter and do a hit-or-miss job. I have seen the beauty of many cabins ruined by unsightly chinking, with uneven blobs of plaster sometimes held in place by furring strips.

Here’s a practical livebox or bait well that can be installed easily in a flat-bottomed fishing skiff. Its top forms the center seat, but the ends of the well are kept in about 6 in. from the sides of the boat. This makes it easier to get a watertight job and leaves room for storing oars.

Question: I go out on lakes that are 50 to 200 miles long and up to 5 miles wide. They have a current that rolls back into whitecaps when the wind is against it. Does this actually make the waves larger than they’d be without the current, or do they just look that way? — H. D. Jackson, N. C.

A while back, in two articles on training bird dogs for the field, I devoted some space to failure to honor point or to retrieve but touched only lightly on what to do if other short-comings develop. Now to bear down hard on some of the problems most often met with—gun-shyness, blinking, faulty nose, stealing point, trailing, false pointing, pottering, cutting back, and so on.

Question: I have noticed that many hunters simply take their beagles into likely-looking cover, turn them loose, and wait until they find and start driving a rabbit—in other words, they let their hounds do all the hunting. However, I like to hunt along with my dog, and am trying to train him to range near me as we move through the woods, something in the manner of a bird dog. Many times I have been the one to kick a rabbit out of cover and could thus quickly put the dog on its trail.

Question: My spaniel has a skin infection around the hind legs and tail. The raw sores are very hard to heal. Can you suggest a remedy?—Mrs. H. Norman, Minn. Answer: Apply a 3 percent mixture of salicylic acid in olive oil to the affected parts daily for a week. Then bathe the dog, using Castile soap or soap flakes.
