CojS'yrigril 196S Blicker the Fiih — Better the Day far Fishing A FEW FLIGHTS OF DUCKS ARE MAKING THfitR appearance in Arkansas and four public shooting areas now being flboded by th* Baffle and Fish Commission are Bayou Metb, Rainey Brake, Nlfnfod, and Bayou de View. Gafne bl&logist Dave Donaldson said that floAding of tome of the shooting areas has been held up to accomddate squirrel hunters. Other shbfttlng areas to b« flooded as soon as niihor repairs to the levees and other structures are cbittpleted. . Donaldson, who makes bwnonthly census studies from the alf, has noted -that some gftdwall, blue-winged teal, baldpate, and a very light Sprinkling of mallards have been seen., With the recent cold wave stemming from Canada, flights of ducks should begin winging toward Arkansas shortly. Donaldson expects large flights of ducks to appear here bft- • tween Nov. 1 and Nov. 10. Bayou Meto is probably the top public shooting are* because of its size—34,000 acres. But Some of the Other areas, such as Black River, Harris Brake, Bois d'Arc, and Shirley Bay, also provide good shooting. * * • * THE FIRST HALF OF THE SPLIT DOVE SEASON ended at sunset Oct. 5, and hunters h»v« enjoyed 6n« of th« finest seasons. Birds, especially young ones, 'were plentiful over much of the central portion of the state and along th« southern and eastern portion of the Mississippi delta. The second half of the dove season is Dec. 18 through J«n. 11. Twelve doves may be taken daily from one-half hour prior to sunrise and up to lunset. The poiseiiion limit is 24. • FOR THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR, A SPECIAL nine-day te*I duck hunt was held in September for study purposes. During the first hunt more than 5,000 hunters applied for the permit, although only a few hunted. This year permit holders numbered slightly over 2,000 and again'only a few hunters were activa. Just why a larga portion of teal permit.holders didn't take part in the experimental season isn't known, but those who hunted the speedy little bird really enjoyed a fine season. • HUNTERS' LOG.
