Hunt-r^f" Sauk County, Big Green BUHL, Idaho — IJf) — Ever might ing in Wisconsin hurting. The Conservation Commission has set a sharply curtailed pheasant hunting season. Even the more optimistic Ducks Unlimited forecasters do not see a booming waterfowl crop this year. The National Wildlife Federation is still more gloomy about the duck and goose flights, claiming as much as a 50 per cent decline in numbers. So it looks like South Dakota for pheasants and a lot more sin River from the NekoosaJto,^ home a mess of fre.'jh- Dam in Wood County down- caught fish and have the little stream to the Prairie du Sac i^^jy g^ggj yQ^. r , . ..

The lake has some astounding fish in it . . . rainbows, lake trout, northerns . . . Just you can do something about the bones.

And some of (iiem are lunk- travel if 'you go gunning forJers for fair. The lake is big and ducks. Last year's severe winter is blamed for the pheasant population decline. Farmers In western Racine County generally concur with the statewide report that fewer pheasant nests were found during haying season. Add to the smaller number of birds another year of good cover and you have diminishing prospects of a successful ringneck bag. The Commission has approved an 18 day phea.sant season this year. Last year we had a 43 day season. The '59 season will be from Oct. 24-Nov, 11. Which also means a heavier concentration of hunters as the same number of hunters go for ringnecks on a shorter number of days. The bag limit this year will be one rooster per day for the first three days of the season, the usual two cocks • day the rest of the season. * * « Pheasant hunters are not alone in their unhappiness. Quail were also hard hit by the >vinter and the bag on quail is cut to three a day from last Vear 's five a day limit. The t|uail season will also be the same as the pheasant season. Other seasons also were : affected. We will have a full ' listing when the 1959 regula- • tion pamphlets come out. ' The waterfowl regulations are not yet set by the federal agency but It is a silver-plate cinch that they will be reduced — perhaps drastically. The drouth in the nesting areas )n the Dakotas and Canada has Struck hard at our waterfowl crop. Some of the Dakota pot- |iole areas report almost no nesting. While the ducks that once nested there have gone elsewhere to raise their broods, nevertheless there has been a disruption of their patterns which may be reflected in their migration habits this fall. Almost sure to be hit the hardest Is the Mississippi flyway and that, lor those who don'ti know, li^iwhece we ane. AlttHiigli a tormal report : on tho «MOMt of trolling In ' Wisconsin's • x p e rimental waters tho last two seasons : has not yet been made, the Conserva tion Commission ' has added several new bodies of water. where trolling for fish will be legal after Jan. 1, 1960. Included in the new waters it is deep. The problem is to find where the fish are. That's where motor trolling is going! to help. By the time an angler rows around Big Green looking for the fish he's too tired to cast and it's too late do do anything but go home. A motor will speed up the finding process. * * « Which, of course, Is the big attraction in trolling. One doesn't actually fish from a moving boat The usual procedure (• to troll until something hits, then heave to and fish the area In which the strike came. Some of the nation's top bass anglers employ this technique exclusively in fishing strange waters. Once they have found the resting and feeding places of their quarry they then can fish with reasonable success without spending 10 days of a twp week vacation rowing around an unfamiliar lake looking for the hangout of the fish. We cannot help but think that Racine Assemblyman Roy Nnleid started something good when he got through the orig inal bill to allow motor trolling on some Wisconsin waters on an experimental basis. Of course, the men who feel that hook and line anglers can "fish out" a lake think otherwise. This writer's second fruitless session last week at Karcher's Hole on the Fox River below Burlington has just about convinced us it is not a place for rousing success with artificials. The denizens of this particular deep are not "hardware minded." We have had follows and much fishy curiosity shown on surface and medium running plugs, on poppers and spinners. Last week a north- em trailed our French spinner up into eight Inches of water less than four feet from shore before veering off and vanishing. Live bait fishing there has been much more productive as some of the night-crawler crew gleefully point out to us. FREE LOADING. LAMPREY—Some of the five lampreys on this northern pike when it was caught by Harold Raugh of Oshkosh still cling to it. The 33-inch 'fish weighed only five pounds. chestnut lampreys, native to the Oshkosh area, aren't killers like the sea lamprey which practically wiped out the Lake Michigan supply of lake trout. about a complete gamut of iholder to grasp the fish while ^^^^ clean ihem. You'll have to rely on a strong grip or the kids. Here's the Way Here is the way Mrs. Hunlj produces a tasty, boneless filet: of trout or similar fish: (1) Eviscerate the (not in the kitchen) and wash it with cool water. (2) With a sharp knife, cut along both sides of the dorsal (top) fin to a depth of one- half inch. Lift out the fin. (3) Flip the fish on its back, head toward you. Cut through the ribs along a line from the rear of the backbone to where the bone ends at the head, again cutting about a half-inch deep. Cut on both sides of the backbone. Turn the fish with the head away. Near the tail and from the point where you began your backbone cuts, cut toward the tail and under the backbone, slicing the caudal (tail) fin attachment. Do this on both sides also. The entire backbone, including the anal (rear) fin can now be pried from the body cavity with the knifepoint. A bit of tissue at the extreme ends of the backbone still holds It to the body but these are snipped with scissors. (4) The fish is now boneless except for the head, tail and ribs, laying against the sides. Again with the head toward you, and with the sharpest knife in hand, skin and peel the ribs and their thin covering of tissue carefully from each side. (5) If the little woman is ultrasensitive, lop off the head and tail.

Stoudt, research biologist for ,the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Stoudt has completed a month-long survey of the waterfowl situation In the southeastern Saskatchewan area, from which the Dakotas and other states in the central flyway derive much of their waterfowl flight. Stoudt estimated 10 water areas per square mile in the study area at the present, compared with a normal of 50 ponds per square mile at this time last year. Of these 10, his report said, not more than three or four are suitable for brooding purposes. Stoudt estimated the breeding pair population In the study area at 32 pairs per square mile, sharply under the average number for the years 1952 through 1958 of 103 pairs per square mile. ITALY LEADS MILAN, Italy —m— Italy won both singles Saturday and took a 2-0 lead over Spain in the rain-interrupted European Zone Davis Cup final. The Italians are the European Zone defending champions. The Italians are favored to go into the interzone final with the North American Zone cnampion, probably Australia, at Philadelphia, Aug. 7-9. By Wm. Taylor McKeown (Editor, Popular Boating) Nature needs co-operation, to keep America's waterways unspoiled. A Michigan county di-scov- ered that discarded cans, bottles, boxes and as.sorted junk might even eventually choke off attractive boating streams and ruin woodland vacation areas. Boy Scouts paddled into action on the AuSable River and organized search missions for submerged junk. Now, traveling by canoe, they wade the shallows and comb the banks in an annual campaign to pick up after litterbugs, and erase the evidence of careless campers from the countryside. In three years they have harvested an underwater trove of more than 16 tons of discarded debris from the AuSable and the Manistee and made them attractive boating rivers again. Fines and Signs Other communities also are pitching in to improve shore and water conditions. Cruising boatmen, in many regions, find signs and fines as an added reminder. Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Connecticut and California are among slates that have specific laws and penalties ranging as high as $500 and a jail term for the boatman convicted of thoughtless littering. A floating can or bottle can puncture the hull of a runabout traveling at speed. A little care can prevent this menace to boating. In co-operation with Keep American Beautiful, an organization devoted to litter prevention, we have prepared 10 simple boating rules for cleaner waterways: 1. Carry a travel-trash bag to port for proper shore-side disposal. 2. Curb the urge to throw over the side. 3. Dispose of trash while afloat only in legal deep-water areas far out from harbor and shore fronts, and only in closed and weighted containers which will sink to the bottom. 4. Puncture both ends of cans so they will sink, and Ispose of them only In the areas listed in the foregoing. 5. Observe federal, state and ocal sanitation laws. 6. Prevent discharge of oil or gas into waters where they will be carried ashore and kill animal and plant life. Kodiak Bear Kill Sets New Record JUNEAU, Alaska ~(^) —A record kill of 101 trophy brown bear In the Kodiak Is land area for this hunting sea son was reported by the bu reau of sports and fish and wildlife. Will Troyer, refuge manager of the Kodiak national wildlife range, said the annual take o bear during the last 10 years has varied between 63 and 95 animals. Nelson said the record kll this year did not endanger the total bear population in the Kodiak district.
