Point system limit working CDSS IT all you want to, but the "point system" which sets limits on ducks is working. It's working In two ways. First it's working for the ducks. It sets more liberal limits on species of ducks that nave had a good hatch. £d Holder GENTLEMEN: Does Your Skin Feel Dry?

And 1 don't like it either, in some ways. It's always a hassle to sit In u blind and add up "points" and try to fell how many nnd what kind of ducks you can shoot to fill out your legal limit, BUT LKT'S look at It from another view, Let's go back to the early 19tX)'s, when the limit got aa low as two ducks a day! Remember that? I do. I remember it well. The number of hunters dwindled rapidly Hunting clubs, which were putting up green stuff to keep land owners from draining marsh lands, had a difficult time getting enough members to survive TIIK HKASON for the two-thick limit? At the time, there appeared to be no valid reason Millions of ducks poured down the flyways that fall Hunters sat in blinds and stared at the vast flights and cursed the "feds" who set a two-bird limit. The reason they set the low limit was simply that at the lime, virtually all waterfowl management was based on what the mallards did or didn't do. Dl'HING TJIK htte 1950's and early 1%0's. th*mallards didn't do well. Drouth conditions cut their production. So officials merely cut the limit to protect the mallards. II didn't matter that large flights of pintails, widgeons, gadwalls and teal came south All that mattered was few mallards made the trip In the years that followed, hunters applied pressure CMI officials from state capilots to the national capttol And they got results TIIK "KKSl'l.TS" were the point system A way of having your cake and eating it too A way of having "a poor year erf mallard production, but a limit on ducks"by shifting emphasis on species In the past few years since the sssteiti was tiUnxlucixl. it has loitered on the brink of failure Many la* enforcement officials don't like it It makes ifocir work too difficult .MA.N'V BIOMKJISTS don'l like it either. Thev wv hunters "reorder" their ducks, ami figure the limit th<way it gives them the most ducks each day And even some hunters complain. They say they wtHild rather just have a five or six-duck limit, and let tt go at that. Any five or any six That way. they don't have to worry' about what kind they shoot. Trouble is, if the point system were abandon**), fins! time the mallards had a bad year, we would U 1 back to two ducks instead of five or six III.\TKKS BKTTKR be glad they have to count points It's giving them more shooting, and far morr birth This year, for instance, if a hunter is in the right place and can identify birds, he can have a lo-duck limit each {lay. Pintails. g'adwalU. leal and shovellers and all "to point birds " So next time you hear a hunter complain at«ut tht point system, ask him which he prefers. A point system, and 10 ducks a day, or no point system and iwi>-duck.» a day" •CAt'SK THAT could be the choice he has HOLD THE ROPE... ROUGHNECKS! BANK OF B««OHIA BRAZOJUA, IWA3 ZZ4Z2 J.
