Manv of the big gamers v.ho bagged an animal felt they'nailed the odd stray that was still wandering around in the hills. One of the latest aerial- searches for big game in the west country took place during the past week, and again the sightings were quite something. At least one herd of elk numbering between 150 and 200 have moved out of the high country and are foraging on the lower winter ranges. What's pushed these animals down is hard to say, but they have been in the same locality for nearly a month. Again, the odd animal taken out oi this herd is counted out as a stray and there has been, no other notice taken. At time's a dozen or more hunters roamed near the elk without ever blowing they were around. At times the odd hunter would move in with the motionless herd. But. going within a few hundred yards of the main herd has not been too uncommon. The animals have good food, water and cover. Nearby traffic does not appear to make them too nervous. sports menu SATURDAY ir by the addition of three new players. Perry Shockey, a de; fenceman from Taker.

Many oi these animals moved up when the hunting season opened in the west country. They do not appear to have any reluctance at coming out inlo the open to feed at all hours of the day.

Check stations snow that it took 1.7 hours for a hunter to get a pheasant this year in the Lelhbridge region. This compares with 1.4 in 1971, There must be a good supply of roosters left kicking around. Last year there were 2.3 roosters per hen. This year there are 2.6 roosters. Problem would appear to be that many hunters are quite content to hunt from their vehicles, and only get out when there is some eiridence of a bird on the c-dge of the road or in the ditch up ahead. Too few hunters are willing, or able to go into the far-off back fields to push out the birds.
