Elk Valley Hunters Win By PAUL CHALA Herald News Service NATAL Recently compet- ing in the 1969 East Kootenay Big Game Trophy Competition, three Elk Valley hunters were among the winners when tro- phies were awarded. Regarded as the largest sheep heads taken in the local dis- trict, veteran sheep hunter An- drew J. Billy for the second time won second prize for the second largest Big Horn Sheep head in that category of the competition. He also won sec- ond prize in 1964 in the sheep competition. Steve Billy, son of Andy Billy, won third prize in the same sheep competition for 1969. Mrs. Frank Travis Jr., also of the Elk Valley, won second prize in the Mountain goat section of the competition. The three winners were pres- ented with plaques as their prizes. The hunting team of father and son have also been active in cougar hunting this past win- ter and were successful in bag- ging three cougar and a bob- cat with their prize hounds. According to the veteran guide, trapper and hunter, ha stated that better game man- agement 3 now required to con- serve what game there is in the Elk Valley district. It was also noted by the two hunters that there was a dras- I tic shortage of all big game in the Elk Valley and Fording River areas. The big decline to the game population, according to the Elk Valley sportsman, is due to the early hunting season on elk, with the herds being shot and scattered before they have a chance to breed. Another effect on the decline of the game population is that of destroying anterless animals and their young. Due to the heavy influx of hunters in the Elk Valley it is suggested that the Elk Valley game reserve be re-established, or suffer disas- ter to big game hunting.
