The Indian Forester May 1922




During the night the kill was taken and while the beaters were collecting I went with A. K. and we selected a suitable tree this time at the foot of the hill on the line by which the former tiger was heading down when I shot him. [...] From my side I expatiated on the advisability of placing the machan to one side of the tiger's line so as to afford a broadside shot and thus minimise the chances of awkward shots such as I had just had to take with the subsequent unpleasant consequences of walking up. [...] The planter makes a hole of the required depth and his helper holds the seedling in the hole till the soil is pressed firmly enough to prevent the seedling sinking. [...] The observations now made agree in a general way with the account given of the life history of the insect and its relations to the forest.
