The State has also some of the world's best trout fishing. It's only 11,337 miles from Brooklyn—and if you are in a hurry it's five days by air.
Congratulations to the fisherman who disposes of the northern pike with what is called a pike-ectomy...after all, the bass is a fighting fish but the pike never picks on anything his own size...he just gobbles up the youngsters.
I'm glad I got SI for my husband on his birthday last August; I never knew I'd enjoy it so much! We get extra copies for our guests, and now the current question is when are we going to have the wendigo in Lake Temagami...it will be very soon, we hope.
How dairy? I hate to beef, but how cud you print such low humor? It's enough to make a cowhide her head in shame. Rather than cowtow to such a person, you should ignore him, Elsie Borden you with moo of the same. Re SI in general: Bully!
THE RETURN OF PINCUSHION PETE
Michigan has just finished a study on the number of deer wounded by the bow hunter and the results will startle the gun hunters...the number of deer wounded in the bow season is way, way below that of the gun hunter seasons...and no trace of "pincushion pete."
Two of the reasons that people spread these tales are: they are simply "appalled" by anyone sticking an arrow into a deer...but they never write a word of protest about a high-powered rifle that can blow a hole through a deer that you can put your fist into. The second reason is that old reason of jealousy; in this state the archers get first crack at the deer. You should hear the moans and groans of the gunners after they get back home without a deer. Naturally, it's the archers that chased them into the woods or the swamps or the hills with their "noisy" weapons.
In my 10 years of hunting with the bow and, I might add, with a gun also, I have never seen a wounded deer in the woods during the bow season, but during the gun season and after I have seen many wounded and dead deer that were left. An arrow shot at game out of range will either bounce harmlessly into the ground or off the slick hide of the animal. If it hits the deer's leg the wound will be superficial...impossible to break its leg. But take a gun that is not aimed right and hit the deer's leg and you have another cripple that will suffer weeks of torture before it finally starves to death. The broken leg is by far the greatest cause of deer loss during the gun season.
