fil 64 I've had my automatic shotgun only fifteen years. What do you mean I need another one! 99 We mean we've made the Remington Model 1100. Agreed, you've got a good gun. So why switch? Because the Remington Model 1 100 is a better one. a The 1100 is built to be more rugged, more dependable, more satisfying to shoot than any other automatic. D It's built to give you less "kick" than any other shotgun made. All the power is there. But a new system of gas operation handles recoil so efficiently you feel it far less. D It's built to last longer. Parts of greatest stress are reinforced; others, highly polished to cut friction. Areas of greatest impact are specially cushioned. Receiver is machined from a solid block of steel. The rich American walnut stock is protected by Du Font-developed RKW finish, toughest ever put on a gun. Even the metal finish is extra rust-resistant. a It's built for performance. An 1100 holds three to five shots, handles all -inch loads (even baby magnums) without the slightest adjustment. And the modern, streamlined profile and perfect balance give you superb pointing and swing. a What we're saying is that the Model 1100 is built for you. In 12, 16 and 20 gauges. All standard chokes and barrels. Also in trap, skeet and magnum models. From just $149.95*. MMU. to Cu«u » Aim «f CM** IMM. 14 «*m gb*Bl> »M, TWMO. On.

The birds buzzed safely between our shots and sailed out of sight over a slight rise. ' "Will you look at those quail fly off with their hearts shot out," Ralph Downey shouted. "It must be some kind of a miracle." If there was any miracle about those quail, it was only that they were there for us to shoot at, and not that they were flying off with holes in their hearts. Six years ago we could have stomped Ralph's farm until the cows came home, and not likely seen a single quail. Today, the covey we had just flushed was the third of the morning, and we knew there would be more. What was behind the great improvement in our hunting? Well, quite a number of things, and all of them started one day a half-dozen years ago when Ralph got to wondering why he wasn't hearing quail as often as he used to. He asked the local game manager about it, and the result was a wildlife plan that was tailored to Ralph's farm. The game manager, working with agricultural agencies, drew up a plan that included shrub planting along fence rows, cover patches in out-of-the-way corners, and small food areas here and there. "Some of the things the plan called for," Ralph recalls, "seemed to go against the trend toward big clean-up on the modern farm, but I was told that there would be no loss of production and so I decided to go ahead." "Now, look at that fencerow here," Ralph said, gesturing at the place where we had flushed the quail. "Six years ago that was nothing but steel posts and barbed wire. There wasn't enough shelter for an ant. "As you can see it now harbors a great variety of birds, and provides travel lanes for all sorts of wild creatures. Last year my boys and I shot over 25 rabbits out of this fencerow alone." The fencerow that Ralph spoke about was of multiflora rose, a shrub that is popular as wildlife shelter. The shrubs had been provided at cost by a state nursery, and Ralph had received planting help from the high school agricultural class. "You know," Ralph said, pushing his hat onto the back of his head anA, eyeing the fence- row, "that wildlife plan was one of the best things that ever happened to me. Finding out that you can have wildlife around and still farm efficiently was a great discovery." We've heard Ralph often enough on this pet subject of his to take the liberty of anticipating the points of his "field lecture." Next ;he11 tell us about the pheasants that nest in .the cover patches, and he'll say, "My son shot two cock pheasants one day d the look on his face was worth a ; tm11i6n"dQllars." Then-hell tell about hearing the bobwhite i whistle to each other, and he'll say that there 'lisn't a finer sound to calm a man's nerves. I i f And it is a certainty that he will mention that A»x his wife has burned a pie crust on more than one occasion since she took up bird watching. "She gejs-,so much enjoyment out of watching i will say, "that I don't mind a \crust once in a while." There isn't much doubt left in your mind after you have heard Ralph's lecture a time or two, that he and his family have enriched their lives by doing a few things to enhance farm wildlife. That is only part of the story, however. Other people have been affected by Ralph's wildlife plan, particularly those of us who live in the city and have no recreation land of our own. Of course, we could go to the public hunting grounds, and we often do, but each year these areas become more crowded and the cqmpeti- tion reaches ridiculous points on occasion. Despite ambitious land acquisition programs by the Federal government and in some states, the fact is that private landowners control over 80 per cent of the wildlife area available for hunting. A new awareness of this fact is leading to developments that promise to help both the land owner and the land user. Most recently have been proposed plans of incentive payments to farmers who open their lands to public recreation uses.

Maybe. Maybe not. Could be terminal pneumonia. Or pleurisy. Or rhinitis, Truth is, symptoms as broad as these can fit any one of several diseases. Worse yet, each disease may be complicated by the presence of several different organisms. Only a lab examination can identify the specific germs. But that can take 24 hours or more. You don't want to sit on your hands all that time. So do this: Shoot your cattle the minute they appear sick with one treatment that gives you the best chance of solving your problems.
