Dear Mr. Fairhurst: Secretary Hardin [Dept, of Agriculture] has asked the Forest Service to reply to your letter of July 14 since it concerns the National Forests. Your article “Cloud in the Big Sky” in the July issue of OUTDOOR LIFE has been read with a great deal of interest.
U.S. Senator Thomas James McIntyre of New Hampshire has introduced Senate Joint Resolution 117, which requests that the President declare the fourth Saturday of each September “National Hunting and Fishing Day.” If the resolution is passed by Congress and signed by the President, hunters and fishermen will get national recognition for their contributions to conservation.
HOW LONG has it been since you took a good long walk? I don’t mean just a stroll from your house down to the corner drugstore or around the block but rather a hike of several miles through scenic country that’s alive with wildlife. In other words, have you ever tried backpack camping?
To anyone who loves potatoes as I do, a camp meal without spuds in some form is pretty dull. Potatoes keep well without refrigeration and so are ideal for many camping trips. They say it’s hard to ruin a potato, but I have seen some inedible exceptions to that rule.
PLENTY OF FACTORS contribute to the yearlyincrease in the number of bowhunters. Youngsters coming of age are joining their archer-dads in the hunting field. Also, archery as a sport is attracting new participants, and many of these target and field archers want to test their marksmanship on game animals.
THE CANADA GOOSE is a wise old bird. Not only does he hie himself south for the winter but also he shows good Sense in the way he does it. If he hurries at all, it’s only as far as the Chesapeake and the Carolinas. From there on down he takes his time.
WE HAVE A POPULATION of 65,000 whitetail deer in our northeast corner of Washington,” says William Streeter, Washington wildlife agent based at Chewelah. “I’ll be working more than hunting during deer season, but I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a hunting vacation than by scouting this region for whitetails.
COLORADO BIG-GAME HUNTERS take to the woods this month under the tightest regulations in more than 20 years. Deer and elk seasons have been shortened, and antlered-animals-only is the general rule for deer hunters. Objectives of the new rules, according to the Game, Fish and Parks Commission, are to increase the deer herds to optimum levels and to stimulate the growth rate of the elk herds to keep pace with the increasing number of hunters.
Sportsmen in Colorado during the big-game seasons are encouraged to take advantage of the Buckskin Network, a joint effort by the Colorado State Patrol and the Division of Game, Fish and Parks to deliver emergency messages. Persons wishing to reach a hunter in the field should get in touch with the State Patrol office in Grand Junction, which will relay the message to cooperating radio stations for broadcast at specific times each day. Hunters are advised to keep camp radios tuned to one of the participating stations.
WE HAVE A WIDE ASSORTMENT of things going in Nevada in October,” reports Gene McDowell, information man for the state Fish and Game Commission. “For that month I’d rather talk a little about a lot of things than concentrate on one item. The guy who likes to hunt and fish can get in his rig and drive in almost any direction in October.
All hunters in Colorado who use rifles or a shotgun firing a single slug must wear at least 500 square inches of fluorescent-orange material, reminds the Division of Game, Fish and Parks. A hunting cap and vest generally have sufficient material to comply with the safety regulation, but they must be made of fluorescent-orange and not just orange-colored cloth. Worn or faded garments, even if of approved material, should be replaced.
A LOT OF MULE-DEER HUNTERS who work Wyoming mountains want to take a record-book head but don’t have much idea what such a rack looks like,” says Jim Gay, a Laramie guide and taxidermist. “I’ll give you my ideas about where to look for a Boone-and-Crockett-size mule deer, but first let me talk about some simple tricks I use to judge the size of a buck that is spotted in the wild a good distance away.
The chukar partridge is clearly a gamebird most likely to succeed in terrible terrain. This is a thing Western chukar hunters have long understood in a general way. Glen C. Christensen, writing for the Nevada Department of Fish and Game, makes it increasingly clear in his booklet, The Chukar Partridge.
DEER HUNTING IN CALIFORNIA continues on a downward trend. Records for 1970 show that both the number of hunters buying deer tags and the buck harvest dropped for the second year in a row. Final kill count for last year’s general and special seasons was 41,323 animals, the lowest in over a dozen years.
Budget-conscious campers will find bargain rates at many units of California’s parks system during the socalled off-season that runs from October 1 through February 28 at most nondesert campground areas. A booklet containing 10 tickets, each valid for one night of camping on a nonreserved basis, sells for $10, a considerable reduction from the regular rates (improved campsites $3.50 per night; unimproved sites $1.50).
ELK HUNTING GETS UNDER WAY in New Mexico this month. Big-game biologist Perry Larsen of the state Department of Game and Fish says, "Elk are the best thing we have going for the sportsman who wants a quality hunt.” There are several courses of action open to the hunter who wishes to stalk an elk.
I’M A LITTLE EARLY with my forecasts, maybe,” says Bob Martyn, a Beaverton, Oregon, sportsman, “but I have bright hopes for some fall salmon this year. What I’m thinking about is the new fish ladder that’ll be bringing salmon over the falls in the Willamette River at Oregon City.
THE PHEASANT AND THE SAGEHEN, the two gamebirds that attract gunners to southern Idaho, are expected to offer unusually good hunting in September and October this year. Outstanding sagehen hunting seems a certainty. The pheasants, though plentiful, are still under a shadow.
“The only sensible place to be in October for a man who likes to hunt and fish is Riggins, down on the Salmon River,” says an Idaho sportsman who has often been there and wants to go again. “That’s why I ask you not to use my name,” he says. "The people I know there will kill me if I give the place enough publicity to bring in a crowd of people.
The pheasant population is up this year in the parts of south Idaho that are traditionally popular with gunners from such Utah cities as Salt Lake and Ogden. The increase is partly the result of the scare about mercury poisoning that kept hunting pressure down in 1970.
WE’LL HAVE ELK HUNTERS scattered all over the mountains west of the Continental Divide by the time you print this,” said Vernon Craig, Helena-based information man for the Montana Fish and Game Department. “Though our general elk season doesn’t start until October 17, we’re continuing an early hunt that we’ve tried for the past three years.
Montana still has enough grizzly bears in the western part of the state to justify restricted hunts. This year’s grizzly hunt, which will probably start October 17, will be open to residents and nonresidents. Montana hunters will be required to buy a grizzly license for $5; nonresidents will pay $35 for a grizzly license and must also hold a regular nonresident hunting license.
WESTERN SPORTSMEN ARE KEEPING a close watch this year on Arizona, where in a bold move the state’s Game and Fish Commission ruled that all deer hunters except archers must get a special-unit permit before going afield. Without one, a gun hunter cannot legally stalk deer.
WILLIAM BEERS OF PRESCOTT, Arizona, an outdoor writer, points an accusing finger at the coyote as a primary reason for deer problems in his state. Bill pulled no punches when expressing his views. “The stage was set for the present deer problem in Arizona back in the early and middle 1950’s,” Bill said.
LAST YEAR’S SHORTER deer season in northwest California and the regulation limiting hunters to bucks with three points or better on an antler didn’t curtail buck hunting in Modoc County. The tally showed 1,445 bucks tagged during 1970, an increase of 334 over the 1969 buck count.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
DAVID N. F. FAIRBANKS
THE SHOTS ECHOED sharply in the cold winter air that first Saturday after Christmas as we testfired my newly acquired Walther P-38 automatic pistol. We had just a few rounds to fire, so I had disregarded my ear protection. When I got home my ears were ringing, and I felt half-deaf the rest of the afternoon.
A furious roar shattered the quiet. I turned and saw the grizzly start toward us at a run. We were trapped
MY FIRST HEAD-ON encounter with a bear in the Canadian North was more amusing than dangerous. At least it was amusing to my companion Arthur Brindle, an engineer for a Vancouver mining company who was posted at Telegraph Creek, British Columbia.
When birds bypass our big-water blinds, we head inland after them with a do-it-yourself sneak rig and these devious tricks
JEROME B. ROBINSON
THE CANOE scuffed on a shallow sandbar, then broke free and floated through a trouty-looking riffle toward a bend in the stream. I crouched in the bow, flattening my silhouette so that it blended with the obscure outline of our camouflaged canoe.
Three rare trout treasures reward those who tackle this alpine stronghold
NORMAN D. WEIS
PURE GOLDEN TROUT, big bronze brookies, and cutthroats so hungry they’ll eat out of your hand! All three are rare, and yet all three are found within a mile of Double Lake in the Glacier Wilderness Area of northwestern Wyoming. Double Lake, located in Shoshone National Forest, is at 10,000 feet, just a few miles off the east shoulder of the Continental Divide.
If you have seen a bobcat’s eyes as he comes to your call, you know how a tiger looks just before he kills
FEW LIVING MEN have looked into the eyes of a cat-creature bent on devouring them. I do it quite often, and I can testify that it is frightening, even if the animal is only a 20-pound bobcat under the impression I’m a dying rabbit. Those eyes blaze with all the ferocity of a tiger on the prowl.
Our hunt on a fabulous Indian reservation nets us two record-book bucks, four other great trophies
THE BUCK MUST HAVE BEEN bedded down in some tiny scrub-oak patch in the steep canyon wall, because when Larry Panzy and I peeped over the ridge the snow-covered landscape seemed as empty as the half-dozen other canyons we’d climbed that day.
I’d give up marlin and swordfish anytime for a crack at these jumbo bluefish that feed inshore and right on the top
DON’T YOU smell it?” John Ginty asked, sniffing at the fog like a hound striking a scent. “If I didn’t know better, I’d swear we were drifting over a patch of wet cucumbers.” “You mean watermelons, don’t you?” suggested Jack Meehl, who was standing in the bow of our 16foot skiff studying a pocket compass.
Most hunters are passing up this best chance for success while others use it to put a deer in the freezer each year
ERWIN A. BAUER
MY FRIEND FRANK SAYERS has been hunting whitetail deer with firearms or bow and arrow for longer than he likes to admit, and he has bagged about as many bucks as the law allowed. That’s not easy to do, because the whitetail ranks with the wariest game animals on earth.
You’ll give Old Thunder-Bird many a tumble if you seek out his seasonal haunts. Here’s how
DAVE, MY 13-YEAR-OLD SON, decided to sit this one out as I prepared to hunt another woods. It was late October, near the end of the first part of Minnesota’s two-part season on ruffed grouse. We had been hard at it all morning, hunting two spots and taking six birds.
I was a greenhorn on my first moose hunt and learned some harsh facts fast. But the hunt led to five more that brought ms finer sport than many men enjoy in an entire lifetime
WILLIAM N. ROACH
THERE WERE TWO MOOSE on the shore of the lake, both cows. One was a big old girl, so gaunt that her ribs showed. The other was smaller, probably a yearling, and looked in better condition. The big one was feeding in water a couple of feet deep, near the marshy shore.
Was it true what I’d heard about this Florida lake’s big bass? I had to find out
LAKE MICCOSUKEE had long intrigued me. Even though I had never seen it, its soft, musical, Indian name, its setting in a moss-bound basin, and the fact that it’s not easy to get to though it lies close to superhighways and growing cities gave it an air of mystery and desirability.
A mouth-watering report lures me 900 miles to camp in a picturesque region where gray and fox squirrels provide great fall sport
I RIPPED THE SHEET of paper out of my typewriter, gathered up the loose papers on my desk, stapled them together, and filed away the rough draft of another chapter of my book on squirrel hunting. Tired from a long session at the typewriter, I leaned back and relaxed as I reflected upon the report that had contributed so much to that chapter of my book.
I WELL REMEMBER by first attempt to sight-in a rifle. I was then about nine years old, and the rifle was a .22 pump with open sights. It was nicely blued, and the stock was shiny. Everything worked smoothly, and I took great pride in the fact that my little pet handled .22 short, long, or long rifle cartridges interchangeably in its tubular magazine.
Redfield is on the market with two variable-power scopes that have the “widefield” feature introduced not long ago in Redfield fixed-power scopes.

Heavily populated Massachusetts has lately become the habitat of several species of animals that had been long absent from its woods and fields. Porcupines, beavers, coyotes, wild turkeys, and bears have taken up residence in the Bay State and in recent years at least six moose have visited the state.
THESE BASS SEEM bigger than they used to be,” I said to my guide Bud Lupton. “When I fished here years ago, though we took quite a few three and fourpounders and the odd five-pounder, the average weight was less than two pounds.” “That’s right,” Bud said.

FOXHOUNDS may well be the most venerable of the sporting dogs used on the North American continent and as a result have found wide favor. But while “houn’ dawgs’’ are familiar to almost everyone and though hounds are generally thought of as “common,” many foxhounds are still hunted in the U.S. in the traditional manner—that is, in the formal foxhunt.
Special Delivery. A 62-lb. codfish, landed at Coxes Ledge by Hicky Slifer of Maspeth aboard Capt. Charlie Nappi’s Sea Witch II, was caught on a combination bait: a herring chunk and an infant dogfish prematurely delivered on the Sea Witch’s deck by a mother dogfish that had been decked by another angler.
