Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE 1ETHBRIOGE HERALD Tuesday, March 6, Habitat deterioration (from Page 8) er to promote positive pheas- ant management. The result of fiaving fewer arc-Mi of secure pheasant habi- tat is a reduced population of birds which characteristically lias a higher annual turnover. Increased turnover results from a greater impact ot some of the mortality factors such as storms, during early summer am: winter, and predation. This increased annual turnover, in part, spawned the concept of al- lien pheasants to be shot in Alberta. Phsasant populations in Alber- ta characteristically undergo annual numerical fluctuations in the order of 60 to 95 per cent: the lower turnovers oc- cur for both cocks and hens. Tiiis population turnover data suggested that legal shooting of hens could be allowed without jeopardizing subsequent years pheasant numbers providing ill it tlie hen kill was kept be- low 00 per- cent, the minimum annual turnover of Alberta pheasants. This hypothesis that ben pheasants could be safely shot in moderation was confirm- ed by our research section through four years of control led hen harvest in tlie Scandia-Rain- ler area of Alta. Consequently one lien was allowed in the daily bag of pheasants through- out the season, and for the month of October only, during the 1971 and 1972 hunting sea- sons, respectively. The most convenient way to gauge the harvest of hens was to compare the ratio of cocks to hens shot during the hunting seasons. From a managcmsnt point ot view we didn't want more than one hen shot for every two cocks. This means that if the annual take of cocks was between GO and 80 per cent then no more than 30 to 40 per cent of the hens would be taken. In 1971, officer checks, plucking stations, and the provincial wing survey program indicated that the cock to hen ratio in the hunters bag as 2.4V to 1. In 1972, the cocE'to -lien ratio 'during October was 2.6 cocks per hen. This 1D72 will be further altered in favor of more cocks as the November ar.d De- cember kill-figures arc added, fn both yc-ars, liowever, the hen harvest has been well within al- lowable biological limits.
