FRIDAY, MARCH I!, 1966 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PAGE 29 Bill Davidson CITIZEN OUTDOOR WRITER Fumbling Outdoor Writer Inspires Hunting Guides Most There is something in me that makes professional hunting guides work well. I think maybe they figure I need help. two times in the last few years I've gone afield with guides that I'd recommend any time as sincere, able pros. A few years back, Lowell Jett took me up to Long Valley, and we had two fat turkeys cleaned and were having a little cheer in about half an hour after we set out. The other day, Ollie Barney Jr. took me up into the lower Rincons. In about 20 to 30 minutes, we had a 35-pound pig (dressed out) slung over my side and were headed home. Ollie has turned increasingly to guiding the last two years or so. He is in some stage or another of retiring from construction business, operates a small ranch in the Rincons and guides a good deal. Almost all of his pig clients, mostly those who paid (outdoor writers seldom pay for anything), collected animals. Barney gets $50 a day for one client, $75 for two, $100 for three. He guarantees shots. What makes his credentials impressive are (a) the success of his customers, (b) he was Arizona's 1965 Hunter of the Year, and (c) he served two terms as president of the Record Desert Whitetail Club. You have to be already in the club and then kill the year's outstanding Coues rack to become president. (It is one of the few groups, with the possible exception of the United Nations, in which you shoot your way to membership.) Late Pig Tally Nelia Witters says someone sabotaged her. She vows she, not her husband, shot a pig in the Bill Mesch-John Mesch-Fred Marquez party the other day. "My husband is the only one who did not get a pig," she told me Thursday. "In fact, I was the first one in my party to get a deer last fall." Sewell Goodwin, the Huachuca Mountains cat hunter, brought in an ocelot, John Doyle told me yesterday. The final tally of pig-takers, too, deserves treatment. Here it goes: Dave Hurley, John Doyle, Conrad Bahre, Ed Strittmatter, Mike Halloran, Jerry Day, Seymour Levy, Joe Welch, Jack Jackson, Lowell Jett, F. T. Gibbings, Roy Hiatt, C. M. Glickman, Allen J. Fox. Also Max Ellis, Wilbert L. Groves, Terry Concannon, Dale Healy, Dan Stubbs, Bill Mueller, Gilbert Duarte, Jim Hiner, Duane Knudson, Steve Hutchinson, Edward L. Nigh Jr. Leon Brosseau took a bobcat during the pig hunt period. Besides the prevalence of certain feed--tubers and bulbs to root for, aguave, prickly-pear--there's another sign I've noticed about where to find javelina. Usually the piggiest country is characterized by rounded-off rocks, like the Dragoons, the Little Rincons and many other (not far from all) Southeastern Arizona ranges. Minnows Work At San Carlos Minnows are taking big bass at San Carlos Reservoir. It sounds like the big impoundment is returning to good fishing. Here are some names of individuals who did well there, passed on to me by Mrs. Ed Anderson at Coolidge Dam Boat Landing: Dob Dobson, Luther Terry and 0. V. Graham of Tucson all scored, led by Graham's limit on minnows and lures. Richard Peterson, Jim McElroy and Jim Barker had good catches Ron Barnes, Jim Felix and Debbie Felix of Safford took some impressive bass, topped by 6-year-old Jim's 5y 2 -pounder. Earl Sholleyrpf San Carlos took one bass weighing % an other at 3%. A Mfesasparty scored on waterdogs and minnows, and Dendy Boggs, B. B. Ray and son of Bowie had six good- sized bass, one weighing 5% pounds. Tucsonians have flocked to Parker Canyon Lake in larger numbers lately. And three Californians and a Tucsonian took javelina there while staying with Gene Tidwell at Parker Canyon Lodge. The Californios were Jim Siegle and John Chittenden of Oakland and Edward Eckhoff of Lafayette. The Tucsonian was Gene Uthe. They clicked hunting the north side of Parker Canyon. Anglers doing okay at Parker lately include Tom C. Hargis Jr. and his father Tom Sr., of Bisbee and Hereford, respectively; David Scheffer, Ft. 'Huachuca, and Elias Hernandez, Benson, limits of trout; Thomas Balencour and party of Tucson, 12 trout. Gil and Mary Sykes, limits; Larry Fortmann, five; Wendell and Marvis Walker, limits; Miles, Marie and Tony Gregory, 25 trout; Ralph Crandall, limits two different days, and ex-Tuc- spnians Joe Chamberlain and wife, now residing in California, limits. · Parker Canyon Lake is now about six feet under its spillway and appears headed for a fine spring . . . And a fishing finale--Jim Sparks of the White Mountain Recreation Enterprises tells me Tucson patronage of reservation fishing facilities is up 34 per cent the past two years. Spring Turkey Hunt Spring gobbler hunt applications may be submitted beginning next Tuesday. The hunt is split. Unit 1A is open for 100 permits April 30-May 1. There are 200 permits each available for the April 16-17 hunt in Units 4 and 23. Deadline,for submitting them is April 4. The drawing will be April 5. Permits are supposed to be mailed out by April 8. , . , _ , , . , , . The Broken Arrow Bowmen have a 28-field, 14-nunter, 14- animal target shot Sunday, with registration 10:30-11 a.m. There's shotgunnery at the Tucson Trap and Skeet Club all weekend--the state shoot. The University of Arizona Army ROTC and Tucson Rifle Club are co-sponsoring the fifth annual Arizona State Gallery Rifle Championship at UA's Bear Down Gym, starting both days at 8 a.m. The Pima Pistol Club is holding a 2700 aggregate match beginning at 8 a.m. also Sunday. . Ft. Huachuca's post-personnel-only javelina hunt ended with a record 51 pigs killed by 182 hunters, according to Wildlife Manager Ken Brown. This represents a striking 28 per cent hunter success (Statewide average is usually 20 per cent). The top three pigs went 40 pounds, were shot by 13-year-old Hal Luben, Law rence Robinson and Vernal Ogden . . . Dr. Richard Harvill Dr Dan Stanislawski, Willis R. Dees, Andy Faure and Jack Jackson are Tucsonians chosen by BLM State Director Fred Weiler for various advisory panels. Javelinas' 'Help' *^ JL Doesn't Help Much In Arrow Melee By BILL DAVIDSON Citizen Outdoor Writer An example of why the Southwest's javelina is considered one of the oddest-acting animals in wildlife was reported by an Arizona Game and Fish Department research biologist and others hunting with,him after the hunt ended. Jerry Day, Game-Fish biologist here, was hunting with Seymour Levy, John Doyie and Joe Welch of Tucson. Day, unlike the others, was carrying a bow and arrows. Welch had already killed his javelina and was carrying a camera. They were hunting in the Klondyke area. LEVY DISCOVERED a herd of pigs feeding in aguave and prickly pear and started to stalk them. The javelina were upwind of the hunters and grazed to a nearby point. Day shot one with an arrow The injured javelina gave out a series of loud, angry snorts that set the rest of his herd wild. The other javelina seemed to be attacking their injured member. Actually they were ganging up on the arrow sticking out of the javelina, each animal trying to get it out by chewing it and tearing at it with their tusks. "They were trying to help, but actually they chewed up iheir fellow pig more than anything else," Doyle said. "The pig I shot was young. When he started squealing, about eight adults charged oui from behind some yucca a n d started to try .to help the one with the arrow-wound," D a y said afterward. "FINALLY, while we watched from about 30 feet away, Seymour Levy shot one and this dispersed the rest of the herd. I collected mine then," Day added. Day said Doyle had a chance at a javelina just a few feet away, passed it, then shot anc missed when the animal w a s about 300 yards off. The Game and Fish biologist strongly recommended the Klondyke area as hunting country for next javelina season. He said his party saw three herds just driving in to start hunting. Star Makes First Start Sophomore Pat O'Brien, who has not yielded a run in 6% innings of relief pitching for the University of Arizona, will get his first start tomorrow against Pepperdine. O'Brien is slated to start the first game of a doubleheader at UA Field, which gets under way at 1 p.m. He has allowed only one hit and has a 1-0 mark to date. RECREATION HANDBALL Gene Burns defeated Carl Porter, 21-9, 21-20, at the Central YMCA last night to advance undefeated to the finals of the double-elimination Southern Arizona Open Singles tourney. Jim Estrada topped Bill Neal, 21-15, 21-8, and will meet Porter Monday for the other berth in the finals.

TCI Launch Cun Plnv ~ - . _-j -j By JOHN LINDBLOM Citizen Staff Writer Skyline Country Club and Tucson National Golf Club, the two newest additions in the Tucson Daily Citizen Cup Matches, will be among the four teams launching the llth renewal of the tournament, April 23-24. The two clubs joined the cast competing for the city inter - club championship during a captains' meeting last night at the Tucson Press Club. Their entry boosted the total of competing teams to eight. The remaining six include defending champion D a v i s Monthan Golf Club, Tucson Country Club, Oro Valley Country Club, 49er Country Club, Saguaro Golf Club and Randolph Men's Club. Skyline and National became first - round opponents along with Saguaro and the Randolph Club as the result of a draw. Skyline was represented by John Lundstrom and National by pro Bob Klewin. D-Ms defending champions, meanwhile, head up the teams involved in the second 36-hole round, April 30 - May 1, along with Tucson Country Club, Oro Valley Country Club and 49er Country Club. Under a new format of neutral sites, the four opening- round opponents are scheduled to compete at Oro Valley and TCC. The second round foes will play at Skyline and National. The two teams scoring the most points under the Cup's Nassau scoring system in each of the first two rounds will compete in the 36 - hole final on May 7-8. The sites for the finals will not be named until the two preliminary rounds have been played. Qualifying rounds, w h i c h were begun when the tournament field grew to five teams in 1963 will no longer be played under the new system. However, the two 36 - hole rounds to be played preliminary to the finals will be considered as elimination rounds and the third and fourth-place teams in both cases will be ruled out of contention. The Citizen Cup, which was started in 1956. has been played annually since that time. The original field included Tucson Country Club, the old Randolph Men's Club (now Saguaro) and El Rio Country Club. El Rio dropped from the field after 10 years of competition this year and the course is now represented by Saguaro. In addition to Lundstrom, captains for this year's tournament include Dr. Ed Updegraff, TCC; Burt Kinerk, 49er; Bucky Maud, Saguaro; Steve*! Engle, OVCC. Roy Tatum,;* RMC; and CoL L. R. Froebe^ and George Murdock, D-M.. National has yet to name a*' captain. Wildcat Spikemen Face Tough Lobos By CARL PORTER Citizen Sports Editor Possibly the finest track and field team in University of Arizona history faces the probability of one of its worst routs in recent seasons tomorrow afternoon at Albuquerque, N.M. 6h';-jjaper, that is. Qut'.what happens on the cinders' as the Wildcats launch their 'dual meet season against powerful New Mexico may be another story, according to UA Ooach Carl Cooper. "They have to be heavily favored with all their returning ettermen plus the fact they will je using freshmen," admits Cooper. "But we still hope to score heavily in field events and the hurdles." THE DEFENDING Western Athletic Conference champion Lobos are overbrimming ' with talent. ., Many cinder experts consider them to be the finest dual meet squad in the country, .counting another crop of great freshman stars. Heading the New Mexico con- tingent is Clarence (Clank) Robinson, NCAA broad jump and triple jump champ who has bests of 26-91/J and 52-8VS. Sprinter Bernie Rivers h a s streaked 9.4 and teammates Rene Matison and Steve Caminiti both have 9.5 credentials. In the 440, senior Art Carter is a 46.3 man and freshman Hiram Carroll, an air force veteran, has turned 46.6 and is r a t e d potentially 'faster by Coach Hugh Hackett. KEY NEWCOMERS for the Lobos include WAC cross-country champion George Scott, ex- Oklahoma City star who has run an 8:54.4 two - mile; former serviceman Mike Thornton, a 4:04.4 miler; one-time Ohio Stater Bob Neutzling, who won the Big 10 indoors, and had a 16-0^ best.
