Illinois Out of the Pint Although oldtimers recall thai game was more abundant 50 years ago. conservation was an Issur even back in October of 1896. according to a dispatch in a Si. Louis newspaper ot that date brought lo us by Harry .Moore, a piano tuner, 603 Forest Ave. The article pointed out that, a group ot 70 farmers banded together lo prevent the shooting of any partridges on their farms that tall. The winters had been severe and many birds hod perished from cold and hunger. The bol> white was having a difficult time, too. in 1896, because the country wfis becoming more cultivated, making cover and re- fu^e scarcer and scarcer, the article continued. The improvements in sliotiams of those days was one | of ill" factors conlribntinc to the j scarcity of bob whiles. In rr-ter- I encc to Hun». the item stated: j Improved 1'irepowr i "\Vitb the old-style guns, after the hunter had brought down two birds, lie had to stop awhile to load. and. if his fingers chanred to be numb and cold, the time required to load and fit a percussion cap gave the remainder of the flock a chance to escape. "But now, with the breech loader, which can be charged as the hunter walks alone, the entire covey is apt to tie destroyed if the hunter is an expert. Unless some kind of care is taken of the re- menanls of game birds so that they can increase and multiply, they will shortly be utterly consumed trom the face of the earth." Controlled Shootln;; Came birds have become mighty scarce in various parts of the nation and controlled shooting or j put-and-take field trials have become increasingly more popular. John A. Muloiif, editor of the Sat- urdy Evening Posi, sent us a note and a bulletin calling attention to an article on commercial or controlled shooting in that magazine's current Oct. 27 issue. The article describes controlled shooting and points out that there are 23 private shooting grounds in Pennsylvania, 32 in New York and 13 in New Jersey. Somehow j the Post writer overlooked Illinois j i which listed 81 controlled shooting : areas last fall. ! Field Trial Slated I The Missouri Open Classic pie• seated by the Missouri State Field I Trial Association will begin Monday, Oct. 29, at the August A. Busch Memorial Wildlife Area ai Weldon Spring.

Ducks Unlimited Report Ducks are accumulating in fantastic numbers ready to go south at the drop of the hat, according to a report to this column irom Ducks Unlimited, Winnipeg, Ca. The migration is in progress and, given suitable weather, U.S. hunters can look forward to a most satisfactory season, the article stated. "Never have I seen more ducks since Ducks Unlimited started in 1938," related Chief Naturalist Bert \V, Cartivright in "Duckologi- cal" who has just completed a 2,000 mile observation trip across southern Canadian prairies. "Geese are moving in from the north but may not have improved in numbers over last year." he continued. '"Die- 1936 waterfowl breeding season in western Canada is establishing a new record of abundance." Good and Loud By using a duck call as an alarm clock to awaken other hunters and visitors before dawn at a hunting lodge in Pleasant Hill last fall, T. B. (Cat) Thornton, 620 W. St. Louis Ave,, East Alton, proved that he certainly didn't lack any volume, as this writer learned only too well. But he was unable to call the ducks from Canada to a duck blind near Clarksville Dam while on a hunt with Jettsc. Edwards, 269 Herbert St., and CJeni Forlx*, 3326 Oscar St., last Sunday.
