Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta The pheasant hunters may be confused By JOE BALLA Herald Staff Writer There were scores of confused hunters in the field for the opening of the pheasant season Friday. The majority of the shooters were looking for the ring- neck rooster, or the male of the species. In some in- stances. Mr. Rooster just wasn't around, or if he was. he was most difficult to distinguish from the females. The problem is that a large percentage of the pheasants are from this year's crop and majority of the male birds have not colored out. They arc exceedingly difficult to distinguish from the dull, brownish-gray hens. Many of this year's crops of males have only a fleck or two of white around the neck, and possibly one tiny blotch red on the lace. It's estimated that only 20 to 25 per cent of the pheasants are older, mature birds in full color. They have proven to be tough to get. The exception may go to the with a good dog. A somewhat embarrassing situation for many hunters. Uist year there was a season on hen pheasants in addition to the roosters Scores of hunters and landowners said there is a scarcity of pheasants throughout the south because there is an open season on hens. They held firm to this stand despite the fact there has always been a season on hens of other species of game birds. It would be most difficult to distinguish between males and females of other species of game birds. With the fish and wildlife branch providing saturation enforcement in the pheasant districts of the south, a shooter has to have positive identification before he pulls the trigger. Losing your hunting privileges for one year plus a fine just isn't worth it. But. it's what the majority have asked for. Then there are those who arc never happy. They wonder what's being hunted the hunter or the pheasant. Being checked up to a half times in one day can become frustrating. But you just can't have closure without enforcement. And. for those who were asking: in this part of the country, the munitions experts feel that, a No. 6 heavy load shot will obtain best results. Towards {he end of the season, as the birds toughen, a No. 4. shot could be ideal for scalier gunners. l-'nr some reason, birds heavy on the wing are able to absorb more pellets. Heavy on the wing is the bird flying across and going full tilt. Try a 7'z-shot for birds thai are young and Hushing close.

Reduction in gas exports is needed VANCOUVER iCPl Reduction of natural gas ex- ports to the United States is the only feasible answer to a threatened shortage of fuel to British Columbia industries, says the president of the Coun- cil of Forest Industries of B.C. Gordon Draeseke said he made his point clear to B.C. Energy commission chairman .lim Rhodes in a meeting Thursday. lie said use of oil as a major alternative to natural gas is not considered a viable alter- native because their is no likelihood of any substantial increases in the existing fuel oil supplies. Mr. Rhodes said he called the meeting with Mr. Draeseke to warn Forest In- dustries there will be a 10-per- cent shortfall this winter in B.C. of natural gas supplies and industry would be hardest hit by the shortage. Mr. Rhodes said residential customers, hospitals and schools would get top priority in allocating natural gas. followed by commercial con- sumers who pay the standard rates. He said the lowest priority are the "interruptible con- or large users of gas such as lumber mills, pulp mills and other plants who get it at cheaper rates.

OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. 308 7th ST S LETHBRIDGE Phone 327 3609 HL101 KDMONTON (CP) Ed- monton has received "highly inequitable treatment" com- pared with Calgary in the 1973 equalized land assessment for property taxes, a city brief says. the charge is made in a sub- mission presented Friday to the Alberta assessment appeal board in which the city appeals its 1973 equalized assessment notification. The brief, heard by the board in city council chambers, says the 1973 reassessment, required every seven years by the province, has underlined the "rigidity and non-comparability of the so-called municipalities assessment and equalization act. Edmonton's equalized land assessment increased by 104 per cent between 1972 and 1973. or from million to million. By comparison. Calgary's equalized land assessment rose only 20 per cent in the same period, to million from million. The difference in land assessments is highlighted in the brief because improve- ment assessments between the two cities "remain reasonably comparable."
