A bit of eyebrow -lifting is being done by individuals who are familiar with Pine Lake In Forest County. A recent warden'i report on fishing lists Pine Lake as having good bass fishing. One Racine resident who owns property on the lake says how can this be as the lake suffered a 90 per cent winter kill last winter. Gordon Knaus of 2051 Westlawn, brings us a copy of the weekly paper published in the area. A series of pictures on the front page showed locals holding a large number of walleye which had died in the winterkill. He said even the bluegill fishing on Pine Lake is lousy this spring and wonders where the bass came from. Apparently local controversy rages there over the water level of Pine Lake. The outlet of the 1,667 acre lake Is the famed Wolf River. Some planks on the dam at the outlet have been taken out some time ago and the level of the lake dropped last winter to the point where the lake froze solid to the bottom, especially at the inlets or creeks where the walleye were accustomed to moving up stream to spawn. Letters protesting the situation there have drawn only one bit of official action and that was when a Conservation Department official came to the lake this spring to make some oxygen content tests of the lake. Knaus said they confirmed the winterkill. From the information available it would seem that Forest County's Pine Lake is just one more example of Wisconsin lakes and streams caught in a bind between forces which would lower water levels to make more lakeshore lots available for sale, and forces which would hold (or raise) current lake levels and stream flow rates for aesthetic and recreational benefits. * * * A friend of ours is going to make a fortune. He has a project under way to raise a breed of nightcrawlers with No. 8 snelled hooks already embedded in the worm's collar. With more women finding more leisure time, along with their men folk, and turning to fishing, our thinking friend says that since most of the fair ones won't touch a nightcrawler without turning pale or taking up golf, a nightcrawler with built-in instant attachment to a snap swivel will solve the problem and keep unaccounted thousands of women fishing. * * • Add Lauderdale Lake to the list of lakes where the boys have been going bang- bang on bluegills in recent weeks. Chuck Kingore of Llnion Grove and a party hit big on fair sized 'gills at Lauderdale last week. Now all that is needed is for the lake perch to begin hitting off the piers and breakwaters in Lake Michigan and the panfish anglers will know utter contentment. * • + Those who talk about how plentiful game was in the good old days can get some argument out of deer management units around the nation. The deer of North America are rated as more plentiful now than they were in colonial times. Just who counted white tails in tlie days of John Alden and Priscilla we are not sure, but that is what they say. For example, this fall ; Kansas will have a deer hunt for the first time in ' modern history, according to the Conservation News. Kansas deer populations have increased at the rate of 30 per cent a year and are now estimated at 25,000 to 30,000 animals. Not since the pioneer days have Kansas hunters been able to legally bang a deer. They will this fall. unn trltlon in the central state or eastern counties of the northeast area of Wisconsin. The northwest area, In particular the Lake Superior watershed, was hardest hit, taking 70 per cent of the loss. It was in this same area that some 4,000 party permits were not taken up by hunters. Despite this loss of deer the coming season has a potential for a hunt kill at least equal to the 93,000 taken In 1964, the department believes. Nevertheless, the department plans to compensate for last winter's loss by reducing quotas for all variable quota areas north of Highway 64. * * * If you are a light sleeper and your early morning hours are being made more wakeful by the lonesome conversation of mourning doves, there is a reason. There are more of the sad-eyed little gray feathered hot-rodders. The Federal Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife and the Wisconsin Conservation Department have completed a co-operative call-count. In 1964 the count showed the population was up In our state 7.4 per cent and another increase is expected this year. All of which will make the hunters in 30 of our 48 states, where the species is a legal migratory game bird, happy. It is still the number one migratory game bird harvested by hunters. However, dove hunting is, and probably will remain, primarily a southern- state sport. We do not have the concentrations of doves in Wisconsin that would make such hunting successful. There is even a big difference in the quality of the sport in northern and southern Illinois. It seems more migration patterns are concentrated in southern Illinois while northern Illinois has much the same concentrations of the birds (widely scattered) as does Wisconsin. And unless there were these huge concentrations of the birds, a season on them would be a general waste of time, effort and what have you. So, lovers of the gentle, cooing gray ghost that can fly like a fiend need have no concern for there being a Wisconsin season on mourning doves. Ex-Hurler's Son Sets Fat Pact —.Journal-Tlmen Vholo Calm waters on the lee side of Powers Lake are the fishing choice of two anglers hoping to draw some action from the weed bed over which they are anchored as the sun dips to the western horizon. Powers Lake 'Owned' by Perch; Walleyes Hide By Pat Dunn Journal-Times Staff Minnows, jigs, deep-running plugs and nightcrawlers were not on the menu for Powers Lake walleye Friday. A day on this popular Kenosha County lake proved two things. One, we could not find the walleye in the lake. Second, the lake abounds with diminutive perch of such courage and rash judgment that they will tackle a plug that is almost as big as they are. A look at a map of Powers Lake will show that there are three "reefs" in the eastern end of the lake, small spots where the bottom climbs Deer Hunt Season Set for Nov. 20-28 BOSTON —iJP)— Joe Coleman Jr., son of the former major league pitcher, was signed by the Washington Senators Saturday for the largest bonus ever given a Washington player. Although the amount was not disclosed, it reportedly topped the previous high of $65,000 paid to shortstop Ed Brinkman. Coleman will be assigned to the Carolina League. Coleman, 18, as a senior, struck out 152 in 80 innings and wailted only 11. Joe Sr. pitched for the Philadelphia Athletics from 1942 through 1949. WISCONSIN RAPIDS —iJP) — The Wisconsin Conservation Commission set the 1965 deer hunting season by gun today for Nov. 20-28 and arranged for a variable quota program in which deer of any sex can be taken by a party of at least four in specified areas. Permits for the any sex shooting will be issued to 50,925 parties, with county clerks issuing 50 per cent of the licenses on a first come first served basis and the other 50 per cent selected in public drawing. The deer hunting season for bow and arrow hunters was set for Sept. 25-Nov. 16 and Dec. 4-31. The season for pheasants was set for Oct. 23-Nov. 28 and for rough grouse Oct. 2- Nov. 16 in the north and Nov. 2-Dec. 10 in the southern part of the state.

They Haunt Dropoffs It is the theory of the men who do take walleye from Powers Lake that in weather such as we have had, Old Bug Eyes would haunt the weed beds in deep water at the edge of these dropoffs. In times past we have had success with bass and northern in these areas and, on occasion, have latched onto good bluegill and perch over these shallows. The wind, out of the east, was about ideal for drifting the two northerly reefs. It was an ideal plan, but the fish didn't think so and they and their appetites have so much bearing on the success of any angling expedition. We drifted, anchored, slowed the drift by just dragging the anchor. Somewhere from six to eight feet down we found that wee bluegills and perch seemed to own the water. Good Kindergarten Crop We took small bluegills on our harnessed nightcrawler despite the No. 6 hooks on the thing. We hit four inches of perch on a Cisco deep running plug. We also brought up five identifiable underwater species of weeds. A dozen mixed colors of Jack Crawford's best jigs were hauled through deeps and shallows, but the big brother of the perch family was having none of them. Assorted anglers in other boats drifting the lake had about the same success ratio we had. One patient angler was keeping the small bluegills and perch. Since he is much bigger than we, we did not have the courage to ask if they were for bait. Walleye Are There District Fish Manager Fritz Paulin says there is a good crop of walleye in Powers Lake. Several hundred thousand walleye fingerlings have been stocked in it in recent years. It is a good lake for walleye fishing in winter. We have marked an X on the water in one place that just has to have walleye 20 feet below. If we can just find our mark next trip, we will be in business. One thing about it all. It was a beautiful day on which to draw blanks. Speedboaters and water skiers seemed at a minimum on the lake perhaps due to an enthusiastic water safety patrol operated on the two-county lake. JOHANNESBURG. South Africa — UP> — A new generation of big game hunter has developed in Africa. He is armed with cameras instead of guns. Photo safaris are now big business in the few remaining unspoiled haunts of lions, elephants, buffalo and rhlnoc- erous. Two of Africa's most experienced white hunters, Norman Carr and Pieter Hankin, take camera fans on seven- day game trails through the den.'se forests and rolling grasslands in Zambia's Luanda Valley. The small parties travel on foot, walking up to 12 miles a day. There are no roads or signs to follow. The guide picks out well-trodden game paths taking the party to within yards of grazing rhino, herds of proud wildebeeste and snorting warthogs. African porters carrying tents, sleeping bags and pro visions travel about a mile behind the main group. At noon the party pitches camp and rests. During the night campers are frequently awakened by the roaring of near by lions and the high pitched, spine-chilling laughter of hyenas. Armed sentries stand guard throughout the night. Photo safaris are becoming more and more popular as many African countries desperately try to conserve fast dwindling herds of animals. Shooting licenses for big game are hard to come by. One of the most popular game trails in South Africa Gains Finals in State l>let Is through the sprawling scrubland of Zululand 's Um- folozi Reserve. This area, which borders on the Indian Ocean is the traditional home of the rare white squar6 lipped rhino. Not Expensive The walking safaris are not expensive. Each person pays $6 a day and provides his own food which is cooked by the guides.

MEXICO CITY — WPi — What world featherweight boxing champion Vicente Saldivar wants to know is; Who's the champ, anyway? The dapper little Mexican voices that question in discussing his so-far futile efforts to arrange his next title defense. What bothers him is that from the way his potential opponent is acting, you'd think Vicente was the man looking for a chance, instead of it being the other way around. Howard Insists The potential opponent is Howard Winstone, who is insisting on a bout in London. "If Winstone wants the title so badly, who doesn 't he want to come here?" asks Saldivar 's manager, Adolfo Perez. "Who is the world champion, anyway?" "We are not being absolute about the fight being held in Mexico City," Says Perez. "Vicente's condition is so good it wouldn't matter whether he fights in Mexico or in Pategonia. But we must make clear that Vicente is the champ, and anybody who wants to deal with him must do it here." Perez is quick to add that he won't refuse any offer he considers reasonable. "But we don't intend that the champion should go out and plead with the challengers," he says. "And I might as well repeat, the last place in the world we'd go for a title defense is England." Raps English Climate "What's wrong with Eng. land? "It's got a horrible climate," says Perez. And, to boot, he doesn't trust the Judges, based on what he saw in a recent London fight in which Winston beat Mexico's Lalo Guerrero. "The judges didn't convince me that they are qualified," says Perez. 1966 Western Open Returns to Medindh CHICAGO ^ m — ThB Western Open Golf Championship will return to the Medinah Country Club in 1966 after a four-year lapse.
