More Pheasants Available For Shooters Later It's a little early to be thinking seriously about pheasant hunting, but according to varied reports from around the countryside, the delicious tasting birds will be plentiful when the season rolls around in three months. Of course, to the casual ob- r-rver who dors all his ^potting from a car. the increase in the population of pheasants might not be noticeable, but farmer- r.nd conservation men in the area figure there are a lot more'than at this time last year. Weather and cover are both important to the amount of shooting hunters Ret each fall. According to officials, the Winter wasn't too harsh last year, and wi'h favorable conditions prevailing throughout the present year, multiplication of the birds has been on I he increase. First of all. more lived to have young, and secondly, with a heavy undergrowth for protection and plenty of feed available, the families have grown bigger. A larger percentage have survived to get shot at. Just north of us. in Minnesota, about 100.000 G-week old birds have been added to the former population by game officials and clubs during the year. This heavy stocking plan will undoubtedly also trickle over into this area, ar many of them change location looking for the right place to live. It looks like it would be a good time to clean the old gun right now. Lindhorst Warns Drivers Of Bad Intersections Words of wisdom and caution came from the office of Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst Monday morning. "It is important that all drivers use utmost caution at road intersections where visibility is limited by tall corn from now until the corn harvest is completed", said Ralph. "The toll of lives lost on our roads every year is always arlded to by accidents on blind intersections." Normally speaking, the motnrM most easily trapped at blind interactions is the one who simply doesn't seem to care that he can't see the incoming roads. He drives headlong into the intersection just at the time when another vehicle gets there from another direction. One strange thing about accidents of this variety is the fact most persons involved in them live within two or three miles of the scene. These persons know the visibility is poor, but became forgetful or ignore the threat. According to Lindhorst, "Some fanners have helped tremendously by cutting corn in the intersections just above the ears, and back from the corner for about 100 feet." more, surgery.
