Too often, perhaps, hunters and fishermen are seen in the wrong light by ultra-conservationists and wildlife preservationists, who view the killing of game or the catching of fish as dubious activities at best.But those among us who neither hunt nor fish but enjoy nonconsumptive pastimes out of doors such as wildlife photography, wilderness hikes or watching a trout feed in a cold mountain stream should understand there are sides to hunting and fishing that should be noted and appreciated.

The two-week firearms season for deer in Maryland is when hunting in the state is most apparent to anyone who ventures even a short distance from the state's urban areas.It also represents the time of year when a hunter, coming home from forest or field, is most likely to be questioned by a nonhunter on the need to hunt, or on what purpose is served by killing a deer.The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, aware that hunting has come under increasing fire from nonhunters, commissioned C three-year study to determine the degree of acceptability of hunting across the United States, and to identify the concerns of the nonhunting public.

Well another year has passed. Although there has a lot of problems we can still look back and find some great memories. If you are like me, many of the good things happened outdoors. Well another year has passed. Although there has a lot of problems we can still look back and find some great memories. If you are like me, many of the good things happened outdoors. While fishing with my Grandson he caught the biggest bass (nearly 10 pounds) while we fished a local pond. The big fish was carefully released and, hopefully, will be bigger come next summer.

I'll never forget the big old buck with a hairy eyeball that used to stare down at me from above the mantel at my great-uncle Walter's fishing and hunting cabin. Or the eggs fried in 30-weight oil and coffee from the Mister Mud Machine that jump-started every morning. Or the copperhead snakes that used to hide in the outhouse or under the rickety dock that hung out over the Susquehanna River. Good thing the bats kept them from getting too comfortable. Memories. I have them. You have them.

*TC The boss tells me that I'm supposed to use this week' outdoors column to introduce myself. The problem is that I don't really know how to go about it.About a dozen years ago, I began a weekly hunting and fishing column in Carroll County, and in the early '80s I did a couple of pages a week for an all-sports paper called SportsFirst by The News American.My first columns just jumped into the middle of the season in progress.Besides, with the rockfish season kicking into gear last week while flounder, bluefish, spot, and Spanish mackerel are still nothing short of great, I hate the idea of boring you with personal facts.

Yesterday, I got a big bang out of being at the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore campus just outside downtown Marriottsville. So did lots of others, from Boy Scouts to office workers. Ellen Radliff, a Frederick resident who works at a mortgage company, experienced the powerful kick of a 50-caliber rifle and the fun of hanging out with her father, Gene. "I'm enjoying it," she said, after handling several of the guns. "I'm hoping this will become a regular thing for my father and I to do."
