SPECIAL WEEKLY RATES Write: Philip & Mildred Young .Tel. Pittsburg 17-3 By DAN DUDLEY Once there was a feller who was forced to go ' hunting on his honeymoon. He, got married late in j the Fall when the fishing season was closed. Now, j if this same feller were to take his honeymoon I between Oct. 1 and Oct. 15 this year, and was smart j enough to get up into New Hampshire's North i Country, things would be some different. He could j fish for brook, rainbow or brown trout in the morn l ing, spend the afternoon in the ruffed grouse and ' woodcock covers, and go coon or wildcat hunting at night. In his spare time, he could go after rabbits in the balsam swamps, or look for ducks in the marshes.

Pian vour lr'P f.0 could plan their trip to take in the small game hunting during the second half of Oc tober, or they could arrive on Nov. 1 and have a whole month to hunt for deer and bear, too. However the North Country has a lot more to offer than just fishing and hunting. The scenery is wild and magnificent. There are plenty of mountains over 3000 feet high topped with dark green forests of spruce. Spruce and fir also border the ponds and streams. In fact, the North Country is often referred to as New Hampshire's Christmas Tree Country, for the cutting of spruce and fir for the Christmas market is an important industry. Accommodations range from village inns and roadside cabins to ' sportman's camps, the latter noted for robust meals and hospitality that includes tips on where the best fishing and hunting spots are. In addition, nearly all the camps have one or more guides, who will take you to the best spots, show you how to catch the big ones and do the heavy carrying and the chores. But you don't have to have a guide if you are an experi enced woodsman. ., , .

Hares are usually very plentiful throughout the re-' gion, and raccoons. Wildcat and an occasional Canadian lynx are also on hand. These predators carry a bounty of $20 and are sometimes shot by hunters out for other game. You need trained dogs for serious wildcat hunting, and some of the guides have them. For many years the northern section of the Granite State has been noted for good deer hunting. White tails often grow big in this land of deep snows and heavy .timber, and there's always the chance that a trophy buck will cross your sights. In recent years new roads into wilderness sections, formerly inaccessible, h a v a opened up big chunks of choice terrain. There's lots of country, and lots of opportunity to get back in where you'll seldom see the track of another hunter. The biggest big game, of course, is bear. Each year a number of deer hunters ara lucky enough to bag a bruin, and there are guides who will take you out especially lor bear if you wish. N.H.
