Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Hunters' success declines NATAL, B.C. (HNS) Results from the East Kootenay road checks for the opening weekend of the 1973 big game season have been tabulated. Twenty-two big game animals were checked, in- cluding' nine elk, six white- tailed deer, three black bear, two moose and two mule deer. The number of white-tailed deer checked was lower than in 1972. However, the number of bull elk checked nearly doubled that of last year. The number of big game hunters checked was 419, an increase of 34 per cent over 1972, when 267 hunters were checked for this time period. Althought the total number of animals checked is one greater than in 1972, the results indicate a slight decline in hunter success for elk species, excepting success for elk which increased slightly. Hunter success for ducks was the same as in 1972. 2 2 ducks per hunter, with 84 ducks being bagged by 38 waterfowl hunters. The number of duck hunters in- creased Irom 29 in 1972. The game checks operate on all weekends and holidays during the hunting season, and provide data used in determin- ing trends in hunting activity and hunter success. The checks at Cranbrook and Kimberley have operated on a comparable schedule for 14 years and provide valuable long-term wildlife manage- ment data A rea DA Monday, October 1, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Cranbrook election scheduled Nov. 17 CHAN IJ OK. 13.
