MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 4 jfl 1936 NORTH IOWA WINTER PHEASANT LOSSES 60 TO THINKS NO OPEN SEASON LIKELY Dr. Colby Says Stock Must Be Built Up to Replace Many Deaths. FOREST CIT7--Because North Iowa reports, received by Dr. F. 3. Colby of the conservation commission indicate that between 60 and 75 per cent of tne pheasants were killed by the winter, he said Wednesday he fe!t certain no open season will be held this fall. Perhaps there will be no open season for two years, he added. The exact extent of the losses will not be known until the snow melts and exposes the dead birds, he said. However, travels through North Iowa have indicated that practically the only birds are those which have been provided shelter and food. Those left to shift for themselves were unable to survive. Co-Operation Is Appreciated. Good seed stock still remains, Mr. Coby added, and the pheasant population can be built up again. However, this can be done with only favorable circumstances and for this reason an open season would be inadvisable, he continued, "Great credit is due farmers, sportsmen, school children, wild life lovers and others who have fed and sheltered the birds," declared Dr. Colby. "It is through their efforts that there are any pheasants left." Still Need Feed. Dr. Colby said that the birds, are !n a weakened condition and still unable to scratch up enough feed for themselves. Although they will soon be able to get some feed from fields, not until the snow has melted will the danger of further losses be past, he added. Extensive plans are already being launched to provide for shelter for the pheasants in case of another severe winter, Dr. Colby said. This work will be done this summer, he added. Dr. Colby also called attention to an alarming condition existing in the smaller lakes of Iowa, where fish life is threatened with extinction because of lack of oxygen. Wednesday Conservation Officer J. Z. Stevens started opening up Crystal Lake. As soon as more assistance Is received from Des Moines, this work will be carried on in a larger scale.
