THE PROGRESS. Clearfield, CorwensviHe, Philipsburg, Moshonnon Volley. Po- Tuesday. October 26, 1976 PAGE TWELVE ipiiiuituuuuuiiuiutuiuuiii I Nature's Notes f B JLM GKIFPO Occasionally a f Aig. the unexpected movement of a deer or excitement causes an arrow to miss its mark and a quick kill is not achieved. The hunter then has the responsibility to track the deer until it is found. A knowledge of where the deer -a as hit is an important aid in helping to recover the wounded animal. The Kansas Bowhunters Association has outlined the fw-io'Aing trailing tips for bowhunters. 1. The first thing the arrow hits is hair, so by knowing w here that l pe of texture of hair is on the deer you will have a clue about our hit. A Stomach hair coarse, hollo w, brownish gray, lips are not dark as is hair from spr.e area. B Navel hair White coarse, hollow, curly and twisted. C Hair from Foreleg Dark, short, medium coarse. D. Hair irom bottom hmd !egs Fine, white, silky, not hollow, tendency to curled tips. E Deer tail Long, coarse and wavy, black or grayish brown on top to pure white underparts. F Spine" area Dark with black tips, long, coarse and hollow G Hear-. Long dark guard hairs, found only over heart, graying with age H 3risket Stiff and grayish black, curly and coarse. 2. The Heart Shot Deer usually leap wildly when hit. long brown or grayish guard hair on ground and sometimes in arrow. Sometimes no blood first 20 yards. Blood on arrow if passed through. Increasing blood signs as you follow trail. Hill uvuall collapse at SO yards, but may travel 400 yards. Rare instances of 70t ards. 3. The Lung Shot Runs straight and hard at first, slow er after 50 yards, then meanders. At end will stagger and stand. Blood s:"gn will be smears on bushes or high ferns after 20 yards Increases as you follow. If hit high, blood sign may decrease and even disappear. Note height above the ground. Higher the hit the farther deer will go. Wait at least an hour before trailing Hair is brown, coarse, not black tips. Is longer than belly hair and darker. "4 The Kidney Shot Hair longer and darker than from lung area : may have black tips. Bleeds profusely and usually immediately Deer may take two or triree jumps then walk away. Will "fall within SO yards. 5. The Belly Shot In case a hit is made in this area, do not be discouraged. All belly shot deer die and can be recovered if trailed after four to eight hours. When hit in belly, deer may just walk away, starting with a few short jumps. Usually walks or runs with legs widespread and with hunched back. Lies down soon, if not followed. Hair is coarse, shorter than on back and lung areas. lighter in color and without black tips (the lower down on the belly, the lighter the hair is in color). Tips of hair are reddish brown. Very-little blood sign. Blood often darker hecause of infusion of stomach or intestinal material. Flocks of food particles, if stomach penetrated. Greenish, slimy material if intestines punctured. Do not trail until four hours have elapsed in cold weather or eight hours in warm weather. Usually you will have to dispatch this deer. 6. Spine Hits A hit in spine drops deer in his tracks. Here, by spine, we mean the backbone extending from the base of the head to w ithin six inches of base of tail. 7. Back Hits Above the kidneys and loin, large amounts of tallow- are present under the skin. Tallow on arrow, and blood, may be on one of two feathers. Hair is long, coarse, dark and black tipped. After resting a few days, deer will be healthy as ever. May still hunt him down, but not as result of this wound. May bleed for 200 yards. S. Loin Hit A hit betw een the kidneys and the spine cuts thru tenderloin and severs aortic artery. Bleeds heavily and at once, with one exception: If deer in act of spinning when hit and arrow- passes through and breks off beneath hide, then skin w ill slide back over wound when deer straightens out and no blood trail will be evident. If arrow protrudes on hit side, there should be good blood traiL Should pick up this deer within 100 yards. Hair over loin is dark and black-tipped, long and coarse, very similar to hair on back 9. Neck Hits Arrow- passing through beneath spine will cut jugulars and-or windpipe, but may pass thru so fast as to be wiped clean of blood. Wound bleeds heavily, so look for trail. Deer will be found in 50 to 80 yards. A deer hit above spine, at base of neck, bleeds so profusely as to indicate mortal neck or chest wound. However, this deer will stop bleeding after 200 yards if not seriously wounded. Hair on neck is short, coarse and light colored, underneath, but above spine it is dark and black-tipped. Likewise, any other hit above spine between head and base of neck will bleed but wound not likely to be serious. 10. Brisket Hit Brisket hair easily identified- Arrow will be coated with tallow. If shot from side thru brisket, wound is not serious but may bleed small amount If shot head-on, may penetrate chest cavity, bleed heavily from heart or lung wound. Arrow- may slide along rib cage, bleed for short time but prove harmless. Thus brisket hit is either harmless or killing, depending upon angle of hit and penetration. Amounts of bleeding tells story. 11. Hind legs from side if femoral artery is severed, deer will bleed out quickly and have seen them picked up in less than 100 yards. Hits too low or too high on leg may not prove serious wound. Femoral artery lies inward from leg bone, so it is not likely to be severed on side shot unless hit heavily enough to smash leg bone. However, serious bleeding may result from severance of leg veins. Press this deer closely enough to keep him walking steadily without lying down, and so that he dosn't run. If lies down, will run when jumped. Then blood will emit in fine spray and trailing will prove difficult. Walking trail will be good. Never be afraid to trail leg wounded deer at once, steadily, slowly. You can get him. 12. Hind legs from rear You have a better chance at femoral artery from this angle. Hair will be white, silky and curled tips over femoral artery. Hair will be short, coarse, reddish gray in color with guard hairs from rear center of leg toward outside. This hit should be trailed steadily, slowly, as above. 13. Liver shot Liver lies next to diaphragm on right side in football-like dome angling toward chest cavity. Liver-shot deer are dead deer; won't go more than Li mile. Blood trail fair, internal bleeding. Hair over liver is typical belly hair. Allow one hour before trailing. 14. Night trailing You should not leave deer for overnight if rain forecast: it would wash cut blood trail. Just in case you do not get rained out. look for raven (crows) next morning to point location of deer. Night trailing with a gas lantern is practical and as easy as trailing in daylight. Leave weapons at home and check with local Conservation Agent. Advisable to pick up deer at night when hit at dusk; especially when fox. coyote are numerous: they may consume your trophy. These marauders may be kept away from your deer overnight; if you hang articles of clothing around the area: as they fear your scent. If at anytime you lose the trail, walk in circles starting from the last point where you found signs. Continue your making your circles larger until you find another sign. One final tip be calm after you have made your hit. Think it out and go about the business of trailing in a business-like way and you will soon find your trophy . . . good luck.

Fox 207 534 COACH AND LETTERVY1NNERS Patricia Wood. feft. was the head coach of the girls basketball team at West Branch Area High this fall, and she had three But Admit Big 8 By DOUG TUCKER AP Sports Writer KANSAS CITY t APi Big Eight football coaches say they're tired of beating up on each other week after week while lesser teams with cleaner won-loss records rise above them in the national ratings But they also agree there's nothing they can do about it. "I look around the country and see other people's schedules, and who they play." said Barry Switzer. whose Oklahoma team lost Saturday to Oklahoma State and tumbled from fifth 10 13th place in the Associated Press poli. "And its frustrating to know that even.' week you play a team that you know you've got to play as hard as you can to even be in the ball game." The Big Eight has produced four national champions since 1970 and landed" five teams in this weeks Associated Press top 20 Oklahoma. Oklahoma State. UNIVERSITY PARK Penn State football coach Joe Paierno can be expected to give his young team a history-lesson before its trip to the Bicentennial city Philadelphia this weekend. A crowd of close to 50,000 is expected at Veterans Stadium Saturday to see Paterno's Nittany Lions take on Temple at 1:30 p. m. Paterno no doubt will remind his team of last year's game with Temple, a 26-25 Penn State victory before 57,112 at Franklin Field. The Owls had twice as much total offense yardage as the Lions last year and Penn State needed two long kick returns to pull out the win. Penn State goes into the game with a 4-3 record and a three-game winning streak after last week's 33-0 victory at West Virginia. Temple is 2-4 and has lost four in a row. "We are getting a little better each week, but we are still making too many-mistakes to be a really good football team," Paterno said after his team's win last week. "We have to keep working at it, trying to improve each week." Paterno who has a 98-21-1 record in his 11th season as head coach at Penn State revised his lineup three w eeks ago after his team had lost three games in a row for the first time in his coaching regime. The changes appear to be paying dividends. "WTe have gotten better the last three weeks and we played out best overall defensive game with the new-kids in there last week," the Lion coach says, "but we still have a long way to go." The Lions had used a tailback-oriented ground game to post wins over Syracuse and Army, but took to the air against West Virginia last week. Sophomore quarterback Chuck Fusina completed 15 of his 24 passes for 261 yards Grid Menu .vest BrarJi al 3ucWa.l !7.33) THURSDAY Junior Htgft C1e3rfie!S at Westerly ar)rway () Tyrone at c-.Twersviiie i FRIDAY Area Cieart.eM at Beiie'pnte Cirwe-.svtjie at -Wo-j-it Union P-;jcisrr.r-g Osceola at Du3ols 3jcMa.i at west 3'ancti Jr.-ei at Purcnase Line Ottiers St jofcn-s at AJ'cona Sa3d agle Area at Lewistown ves'rnor.t H.::too at 3tfors Central at Seiiwootf Antis Chestnut RrSge at Sertin Srot-rs Vai'ey 3ishop .VcCort at North star Erie Strong Vincent a?

Coaches Blast Colorado. Nebraska and Missouri, all with 2-1 conference records "We probably have five teams right now who are as good as anv team in the top 10." said Al Onofrio. w host-Missouri Tigers whipped Nebraska last Saturday 34-24. rising from 17lh to luih and shoving the previously third-ranked Cornhuskers to ninth Missouri beat Southern Cal and Ohio State earlier this year, but the Trojans are rated fourth this week and Buckeyes are eighth. "Because of the next four w eeks several of us are going to be knocked out," Onofrio said. "Somebody has got to win and somebody has got to lose, and we're going to have some awfully good football teams not rated as high as they should be." "When I look and see teams that are ranked ahead of Big Eight teams." said Bill Mallory of No. 19 Colorado. T think. 'There's no way." I just don't think we're given credit for a heck of a league. I'd love Lions To Get History Lesson and two touchdowns and scored one touchdown himself on a quarterback sneak. Fusina's 261-yard passing performance was the third best in Penn State's history. John Hufnagel passed for 290 yards against Maryland and 271 vards against Boston College in 1972. Fusina has completed 25 of his 42 passes for" 399 yards and four touchdowns since taking over the starting quarterback job when senior John Andress suffered a shoulder injury four weeks ago. Fusina's totals are 42 completions in 84 attempts for 575 yards and five touchdowns. He has been intercepted three times. Junior flanker Jimmy Cefalo leads the Lions in receiving with 10 catches for 206 yards, including a 39-yarder that set up Penn State's first touchdown last week.

"Like Maryland." said Oklahoma State Coach Jim Stanley, whose Cowboys jumped to icth this week by beating Oklahoma. "Maryland doesn't have a good team on its schedule, and they're rated real high if if tii j They would have a hard time in the Big Eight " Kansas zoomed to the top 10 after winning its first four non-conference games this year, then suffered successive losses to Oklahoma Slate and Oklahoma and tumbled out of sight. Meanwhile. "Michigan retained the top spot in this week's ratings receiving the first place nod from 53 of the 00 voters It was the fifth straight week Michigan was firsthand for the fifth consecutive week Pittsburgh w-as the top challenger. UCLA climbed from the fourth to third spot, followed by Southern California and Marvland. Unbeaten Texas tight end Mick Shuler are tied for second in receiving with nine catches each. Paterno plans to continue alternating his running backs as he has in the last three games. Freshman tailback Matt Suhey is the team's leading rusher despite missing two games with a leg injury. Suhey has rushed for 320 yards in 81 attempts. Paterno also will make extensive use of his G-men, junior Steve Geise and freshman Mike Guman. who alternated at tailback while Suhey was sidelined by the injury. Geise, whose brother Joe is a defensive end for Temple, has gained 292 yards in 75 carries while Guman has 225 yards in 53 tries. Fullbacks Anthony Alguero. Bob Torrey and Larry Suhey also will share playing time this week. "We are going to continue to play a lot of people until someone stands out head and Poliick.

Freshman Matt Millen is the team leader in interceptions with one in each of the ghree games he has started at inside linebacker. The Lion defensive unit may not know what to expect from Temple this week. Pat Carey has started each of the Owls' six games this season, but Terry" Gregory came off the bench to complete 12 of 20 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown in Temple's 24-16 loss at Syracuse last week.

'We're suggesting that there not be an exodus of hunters to that area hoping to have unusual luck on Saturday."" said Game Commission spokesman Stanley Forbes. "Most of the game have been recovered, so the drawing card is gone. Thousands of pheasants escaped from pens on the reserve near " Cambridge Springs when heavy snow-knocked down a fence last week. Forbes said state officials fear the convergence of hundreds of hunters in the fields adjacent to the game land reserve could cause safety problems. He said enough birds have been recaptured to permit the Game Commission to carry out planned fowl stocking in western Pennsylvania. Most of the birds still at large are believed to be on state property where hunting is not permitted.
