Much of this type of burning is being done, robbing nesting upland game and waterfowl of a place to raise a brood, it was said. Burning encourages a heavier growth later but every effort should be made to reduce the amount of burning during the nesting season. Much of the burning now- being done is of no value to the landowner and could be spared. In the game survey of the state conducted by game experts it was definitely reported that decreased populations of game was due to the lack of cover, nesting areas and food. The game management plan as is being carried out by the Fish and Game commission seeks to replace as much of the natural conditions for the game as possible and encourages an increase of game through this medium. Most landowners located in game management areas have been following out the recommendations made by the deputy wardens and game experts about burning and are leaving good nesting cover. But many who are not acquainted with the program have been burning indiscriminately and the Fish and Game commission asks that they as sist in the program and offer their co-operation by sending a representative to call on them to explain the plan and to supervise the burning which must be done.
