D8 SUNDAY. MAY 17, 1998 LIFESPORTS THE SALINA JOURNAL T ON THE OUTSIDE TGOLF TOMMIE BERGER fisheries biologist, Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks Salina pros offer pointers Baby wildlife need to be left in the wild I know that most of you are aware that it is late spring and that this is the time of year when many of our wild critters are reproducing. And most of you have a pretty good idea of what to do if you find a-baby out there somewhere. But because it's a pretty important topic and we get calls every year on this subject, it's perhaps time for a reminder. The best advice is to leave it alone. All baby wildlife are cute and cuddly as are babies of anything. But baby wildlife grow fast and before you know it, they're grown up. These critters have wild instincts, and they can be downright mischievous or even dangerous. Wild animals carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans or domestic animals. And as you've probably heard many times, most baby critters that you find in the fields are not orphaned, abandoned, or in need of our help. Most are put there or left there by their parents because you came along and scared them away. Please ignore the temptation to pick up a baby animal and take it home. Most people aren't able to correctly care for the critter anyway. Most mammal babies can't survive on milk out of your refrigerator. The old tale that wild animal parents will not accept a youngster back after being handled by a human isn't true. So if your youngster does come home with a baby raccoon or deer, take it back to the location where it was found and leave it there. Or, if in your farming operation, you find a baby or nest of babies and they are in harms way, simply move them to the edge of the field or out of the grain bin or combine. If there is sufficient ground cover put them there. If not, put them in a cardboard box or bucket and set them in the shade. If not before, as soon as it gets dark, mom will be back to move the babies to another safe place. If you have a situation where you need advice or don't feel that you can make a good decision, then call someone who works for Wildlife and Parks, your local biologist or conservation officer. They will give you some advice or come to the location and give you a hand. There are times when a baby deer gets injured by a combine or a hay swather. We have several of those situations every year and the babies are often taken to a vet. The trauma of travel, shots, bandages, etc. are usually too much and the critters die anyway. It is often better to leave the injured critter there for the parents to care for. They can do a better job than We can. ! As we all should know and understand, nature is often extremely amazing, but it can also be cruel. In the wild, life and death goes on-every day. - Predators have to eat and for them to survive, other animals have to die. Baby animals are especially vulnerable. The strong and lucky survive, the weak, sickly, and injured often die. But that's life. If every baby critter survived to be an adult, we would be overrun by deer, raccoons, coyotes and bobcats. • Occasionally, someone will happen upon a situation where a baby is truely orphaned. The mother is killed on the road and the babies are there at the edge. Or someone kills a troublesome raccoon, finds that it is a lactating female, and hears the babies crying in the hayloft. In these situations, Wildlife and Parks has a list of wildlife rehabil- ita'tors who are licensed to care for these animals. Legally, these are the only people who can raise baby wildlife. Their objective is to return everything back to the wild wherever possible. The same rule applies for turkey or pheasant nests. Every year with the first cutting of alfalfa farmers often find game bird hens flushing from nests or going through swathers. ^ They sometimes pick up the eggs and incubate them at home. I know it may not be feasible, but cutting around a nest or raising .the header to leave some cover over the nest would be preferable. • • So leave those little critters out there where you find them. It's better for them and it is illegal for you. This is one time when your local Wildlife and Parks personnel can help you out and prevent some major headaches later in the year. Hardesty, Overgard, Syring give advice on equipment to putting By HAROLD BECHARD The Salina Journal Golfers are a fickle lot. They are never satisfied. If they're a 20 handicap, they want to be a 15. If they're 15, they try like heck to be a 10. If they're 10, they long to be a 5. Few players can smack it off the tee like Tiger Woods and putt like Ben Crenshaw, but that doesn't stop them from trying. Whether you're a single-digit golfer, a weekend hacker or someone just learning the game, everyone has room for improvement. And so, after giving lessons during Friday's nation-wide "Cure Your Slice" day sponsored by Golf Digest, the three PGA professionals from Salina are here to offer a few tips on how you can become a better player. Listed below are some pointers that Randy Syring (Salina Country Club), Steve Hardesty (Salina Municipal) and Robert Overgard (Elks County Club) hope will make you a more complete player. Equipment (Randy Syring, Salina C.C.) • Irons — Syring said the most important thing to remember when buying equipment is to make sure it fits properly. "It's not a good idea to buy irons these days without being fitted for a set," Syring said. "If you end up with irons that are ill- fitted to your golf swing, you can slice them or hook them or push them or pull them just because the iron doesn't fit you. "I'm sure that any of the three Sallna's three PGA professionals Salina Country Club) and Robert prove your golf game. pro shops have fitting sessions. So, whenever someone comes to me interested in a new set of irons, I almost always suggest a fitting session to start out with so we can narrow the parameters of what clubs might best fit their swing." • Drivers — There's nearly as many drivers on the market as putters and they all have different shapes, lengths, shafts and flexes. Syring said he encourages people to try out demos before buying them. "Unfortunately, there are no standards anymore in length and shaft flex," Syring said. "So, it's very difficult to tell an individual they need a firm shaft or they need a more flexible shaft in a particular model because a firm shaft in a Galloway driver may be completely different then a firm shaft in a Titlest driver." Syring uses a monitor to test the swing speed of players. A swing above 90 miles per hour Steve Hardesty (left, Municipal Golf Course), Randy Syring (center, Overgard (right, Elks Country Club) have some tips on how to Im- means a person is safely in the firm-shaft category. • Putter — "Putters are almost a completely personal choice," Syring said. "I always tell people the first thing to look for is whether the putter is square to the line. If you can tell that with the putter, it's worth trying out. "But if you get the putter down and you start adjusting a little bit when you're ready to putt and you can't quite see when it's square to the line, then it's probably not a good putter for you." The golf swing (Steve Hardesty, Salina Municipal G.C.) • The grip — In order to rip it, you must grip it, and if the grip is wrong, you're usually trudging down the wrong fairway looking for your ball. The most popular grip places the club in the left hand running diagonally along the fingers for a looser, more flexible feel, and the left thumb in the palm of the overlapping right hand. "The grip of the club is probably one of the worst causes of a slice," Hardesty said. "Most people place the club in their palm. If it's in their palm, they have less wrist action, which causes more slicing." • Rhythm and tempo — "What I try to do in the initial practices is to focus on ball contact and swing rhythm and not focus on distance," Hardesty said. "If the player can meet the ball in the center of the club face with a nice even rhythm, that tends to straighten out the ball and give them more confidence. "I also try to encourage an even rhythm and tempo," he said. "Your personal tempo might be fast, so we need to make sure the backswing and the follow through has the same rhythm." • Practicing — Hardesty said a practice session should begin with short shots and short swings. "It's important to take an even-; ly paced backswing and follow . J; through, so I would concentrate ;< on the 9-to-3 drill, swinging back < halfway and through halfway," * Hardesty said. "Start with 50 ?,; yards and work your way out J; with longer clubs." ; * Putting * (Rob Overgard, Elks C.C.) It's a time-worn phrase, but v J "drive for show, putt for dough" 1 ; still holds true today as it did « back during the days of Ben * Hogan and Sam Snead. ,.-J And everyone, it seems, has ••••* their own way of getting the ball* into the hole. "I have seen some people that"' have really bad putting strokes ; who make a whole lot of putts. It's a very individualistic thing,"Overgard said. "There are certaifi things you can teach a beginner" j about putting that will make r* them a better putter, but you've^ got people out there who have ^ been playing golf for a long time-* who have some very unorthodox • strokes and stances, and still putt very well." -;,i • Fundamentals — "When 1'^ trying to help someone with their putting, I talk about taking (the /•;; putter) straight back and straight through," Overgard said. "Get »:;;; your shoulders good and square"; to the target and try to work the ball right down the target line. Try to keep your head still and eyes over the ball. That's pretty;;. much the basics." '•£; • The practice green — "Pick; a flat area on the green and hit £'•: lot of two- to three- to four-foot \'._ putts because, if you're hitting ••:'.. lag putts, you're trying to hit it'.„.> within two or three feet of the X hole," Overgard said. "A lag putf: doesn't do you much good if you..; don't make the next one." ' ; " T FISHING Monster Kansas flathead might break two records Crappie fisherman lands catfish at Elk City Reservoir that tips scales at 121 pounds From Staff and Wire Reports ELK CITY — Finally, there is a tale of the one that didn't get away. Ken Paulie of Caney was fishing for crappie along the dam at Elk City Reservoir on Thursday when he reeled in a pending world-record flathead catfish, a 61-inch specimen weighing 121 pounds, with a girth of 42 % inches. "I've been in fisheries for 12 years, and this is the largest freshwater fish I've ever seen," said Sean Lynott, district fisheries biologist at Elk City, who helped Paulie take the flathead to a grain mill in Independence where it was weighed on scales certified by the state. "I was able to get him right between two rocks in the shallow water so he couldn't move." Ken Paulie Caney fisherman "Not only does it break the state record, it smashes it," Lynott said. "Generally when a state record is broken, it's by a pound, or a couple of ounces, not by something of this magnitude." The Kansas flathead record is a 90- pound fish caught below the Pomona Dam in June 1993. Paulie's flathead could eclipse the records of the International Game Fish Association (91 pounds, 4 ounces) as well as the National Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame (92 pounds). The flathead also would surpass the association's world records for 11 catfish species, including the blue catfish record of 111 pounds. Blues are generally the largest catfish species. Paulie was using a Zebco 33 reel and rod with a 17-pound test line to avoid constantly break line in the rocks while fishing for crappie. "The wind was blowing hard toward me, and I was kind of mad because I thought the crappie'fishing would probably not be too good," Paulie said.' Standing on a rock in shallow water, he hooked what he thought was a rock or log. "I was able to get him right between two rocks in the shallow water so he couldn't move," Paulie said. "Then I grabbed him by the'mouth, pulled him near shore and tied a rope on him. It's funny because I ..,. don't flathead fish, but I have friends who - do, and I've seen several 45- or 50- - pounders this year. "I figured this one was 75 or 80, so I ran to wildlife office area. I knew when I told them how much I thought it weighed that they were thinking, 'yeah, right. We've heard that before.'" Lynott and Paulie found out just how big it was when they struggled to carry it up the bank. What Thursday morning taught Paulie is that bad weather isn't necessarily bad and reaffirmed the angling truth that-,,, what you fish for isn't always what you-*; catch. .> "I'm still kind of in shock," he said. "I"'" didn't go out to flathead fish, I just happened to be at the right place at the right * time."
