There to be more and more concern Hut then an abundance of male pheasants throughout southern Al- berta and a scarcity of hens. Some blame it on the one bird per day limit during the hunting aeason last fall. Others fee] fox are taking a heavier and heavier toll among the birds and there should be a bounty placed on fox. A key finding on the last print: no one has yet been able to show that a bounty on any predatory animal has pro- duced the desired results, despite the fact there have been numerous research projects carried out like wolva in On- tario. Problems are seen tor Montana. Frank H. Dunkle, director of the Montana Fish and Game department, has publicized his professional convictions on the topic of executive reorganization. In the January-February 1972 issue of Montana Outdoors, the department's official publication, Dunkle answered this question: "How will executive reorganization affect wildlife and its In his answer, he said, in part, "When the fish and game department is activated by ex- ecutive order into the new reorganized department of fish and game, the chairman of the commission and the director of the department will both be appointed by the governor in office at the time. From then on both those men, plus the members of the commission, serve at the governor's plea- sure. All appointees come under the gun every four years after the gubernatorial election. "When the people get to express their approval or dis- approval of the way things are handled only every four years, this puts an awesome amount of power in the hands of the jovernor. In the past, the public has had access to comment orcefully on wildlife matters at any time on many levels. In the future their only source of appeal will be the governor. "Some of the most competent comments, recommends- ions and criticisms of environmental activities come from employees of government. These comments normally are >ased on scientific facts, uncolored by politics. Facts often the necessity for a course directly opposite what might w politically expedient as far as resource and people welfare 3 concerned. "It Is one thing to be able to quickly and decisively re- move deadwood from government payrolls. It Is entirely dif- ferent to e xpect conscien- tious, dedicated professional workers to perform In the public Interest' with a con- stant job threat hanging over their heads. "Although executive reor- ganization as presently writ- ten appears to offer certain securities to workers, there is no way to escape the fact that the men doing the hiring and firing will be political appointees.
