Alberta minister of lands and foists, is- sued an explanation for the season. Some time ago, it was announced that the pheas- ant season would allow a daily hag limit of 3 pheasants (one of which may be hen) from Oct. 8th to 30th, and a daily bag of five pheasants (one of which may be a hen) for the remainder of the season to Dec. 4th. This relaxation of the hen pheas- ant protection occurred after a three-year experi- mental hen pheasant season in the Scandia-Rainier area south and west of the town of Brooks. The experimental hen pheasant season last fall had a bag limit of three cocks and two hens in Oct. and 5 cocks and 3 hens for the remainder of the season. Three thousand permittees harvested ap- York Mets. McNally's 21-5 record gave him an .808 winning percentage, tops in the American League, with Mcr who Tony Oliva. sidelined late in i proximately 2.900 pheasants at a ratio of one hen i._ cock While hunters were able lo harvest approx- imately 65 per cent of the total fall population in Ihe study area, this was still less than Ilic average total mortality that normally occurs in a pheasant population between fall and spring. Concern has been expressed that a hen season may he detrimental to the population by dispropor- the season by torn cartilage in his right injury which he suffered in June but which lie played with for over two months, won the batting title in the American League with a mark. New York Yankees Bobby Murcer finished second point control, walking none, in winning his 18th game againsl 11 losses. Only two days before the game, he had not been feeling well. "But I'm going to he said, adding that lie had no problems against the Padres. "When you've got support like I have on this club it makes you feel better and it makes you pitch he said. Rookie Dave Kingman, filling in for injured Bobby Bonds, provided Marichal's major of- fensive support. The 6-6, 210- pound right-handed slugger capped a three-run fourth inning against Dave Roberts with a two-run homer. Tito Fuentes opened the in- ning with a single and scored on a double off the centre field fence by 40-y e a r -o 1 d Willie Mays. The Giants added to runs in the ninth, but they wer- en't necessary as Mariehal had the Padres well under control. The Dodgers, meanwhile, were concentrating on beating the Astros and watching the Scoreboard. They had to and did. But there was nothing they could do to stop the Giants. Maury Wills, the Dodgers' shortstop and captain, capsuled I his team's disappointment, say- 1 ing: i "On paper, we're a better team than the Giants. But they're a better team on the field. Rut to lose by a game well, that's pretty tough." Don Sutton, 17-12, pitched bril- liantly for the Dodgers, thwart- ing the Astros on six hits and six strikeouts.
