Here is a photograph (see below) of four turkeys that my son, Jim Cornell, and I found one Sunday morning during October of last year while squirrel hunting. They were obviously run down by some lunatic with a driver’s license; we could see tire marks on the shoulder of the road.

EARL FRANKLIN KENNAMER
ARRIVING AT THE LAKE in midafternoon, I nodded to a fisherman who was sitting in his boat in the hot sun about 20 feet from shore near where I had caught a couple of largemouth bass the week before. He didn’t seem to be too enthusiastic about the weather or his fishing success.

IN 14 YEARS of writing about camping and three times that many years of enjoying the sport, I feel I’m entitled to have pulled a few boners. In fact, I don’t see how a camper can do otherwise. I’ve pulled some magnificent ones, and perhaps my telling about them will save a few other campers from doing the same things.

THERE IS PLENTY OF FINE fishing water available in New Hamphire, and the hatcheries are full of fish that will be stocked before and during the season. The only missing element in the fishing forecast is fore-knowledge of the weather. Weather can have more influence on a fishing season than anything else can.

IN NEW YORK STATE, fishermen have three choices of things to do on opening of the trout season: 1) They can fish the legendary trout streams where there is always the possibility of hitting the jackpot, maybe a 12-or-14-pound rainbow trout; 2) They can go for a sure thing by fishing smaller streams heavily stocked just prior to opening day.

After a week of stream-study talks with fish-and-game-department biologists in Vermont and New York State, I am convinced of the following: 1) Stocking streams with two-year-old or older trout does not improve the fishing in proportion to its high cost.

THERE HAVE BEEN no substantial changes in open-water fishing laws in Maine for ’72. Allowable weights and the number of fish that may be caught and kept are eight fish or 7½ pounds. This applies to landlocked salmon, trout, togue, and black bass, with a few exceptions that will be noted in the 1972 summary of the laws, available when you buy a license.

IT IS SAID THAT 10 PERCENT of the fishermen catch 90 percent of the trout, and I think that is true in Connecticut every day of the fishing season except one—opening day. With most of the state’s streams, lakes, and ponds newly stocked, many of opening day’s best catches are made by youngsters and newcomers.

George Heinold
WHITE PERCH ARE UNDOUBTEDLY the most popular early-season fish in the tidal rivers of Rhode Island. Almost every river that empties into Narragansett Bay has its own run of white perch. I’d say that the Palmer River, which flows into the Bay at Barrington, and the Sakonnet, which flows out of the Mount Hope Bay section to enter the Atlantic near Newport, are the most productive.

Freshwater and saltwater trout, are expected to play a big part in Delaware’s 1972 angling picture. Fisheries men with the Division of Fish and Wildlife look for a repeat of 1971's gray-weakfish bonanza, considered the best in years. They're predicting that this year’s trout will be even bigger than last year’s, when they averaged a couple of pounds with some weighing seven pounds or so turning up.

GOBBLER HUNTING IN APRIL and May is something relatively new to North Carolina, but it is rapidly growing in popularity. Several years ago, the Wildlife Resources Commission began to phase out traditional winter turkey hunting. It did so because biologists have learned that spring hunts for bearded turkeys offer better protection to breeding stocks and encourage turkey populations to spread.

Pitchkettle Creek got its name from North Carolina's earliest exports—tar, pitch, and turpentine— but its most enduring claim to fame may be the hordes of hickory shad that run up its dark waters each April to spawn. On a good day in April or early May when the shad are hitting, it is possible to land 50 hickories on spinning tackle and tiny leadhead jigs called shad darts.

Overlooked by many Alabama anglers are 30,000 farm ponds and small lakes that range from five to 100 or more acres. Few are heavily fished, but they account for a healthy percentage of bass and bluegills taken each year in the state. Because most farm ponds are properly fertilized and well managed, they generally produce more and larger fish per acre than do the large lakes.

INDIANA FISHERMEN can expect somewhat better luck this year than they had in 1971. They took plenty of fish last year, but lack of high water in the spring slowed things up. The situation looks better this year. The natural lakes of the northeast, the strip pits of the southwest, farm ponds and smaller lakes of the southeast, and larger lakes of the northwest will provide the best April action.

IDAHO ANGLERS ARE GOING to have to search for some clear spring water if they are to take trout when the season opens May 27,” says Bob Bell, fisheries worker for the Jerome station of the Fish and Game Department. “That is, stream fishermen are going to have to conduct that kind of search if they want to try for trout in waters that resemble trout streams in flyfishing condition.

A long stretch of the famous Silver Creek near Bellevue, Idaho, will be open to trout fishermen all year, starting this year. The stretch is at the lower end of Silver Creek, where it runs into Little Wood River. In previous years Silver Creek was open all year only from its mouth upstream to Silver Falls, a distance of about two miles. It will now be open from the mouth upstream to Priest Camp Ground, a stretch of seven or eight miles.

IT’S OUR WEATHER that’s terrible in spring,” says Gabby Barrus of Cody, Wyoming. “Our fishing can be good in places, but an angler must do a lot of ducking and dodging in April and May to find good water and a climate that for the moment is tame enough to fish in.

AS YOU GET CLOSE to the dam, the noise is deafening.

It looks as if a continuous series of depth charges were exploding along the whole lower front of the dam.

WHEN I WAS a kid I had an uncle who owned two very potent firearms. One was a Model 95 Winchester lever-action rifle in .405 caliber. The other was a Winchester Model 1901 lever-action 10 gauge shotgun. I don’t think my uncle, who was a lawyer, had much use for either of those old cannons.

David Michael Duffey
MENTION "getting a puppy started," and most dog people envision procedures that go into the formal training of a hunting dog. But too few persons give much consideration to giving a puppy the proper start in life, which is equally as important as any formal training the young dog may receive later.

HENRY MOORE
Water Haul. Encountering a school of uncooperative bonito, Skip Mackey of Cocoa Beach tried the old “bucket of water" trick used by commercial fishermen to simulate shoveling trash fish overboard. He had a companion throw a pail-ful of water about six feet behind the boat, dropped a home-tied streamer into the splash, and promptly hooked a 17-lb.-13-oz. bonito.
