Four years ago the dept. of lands and forests, fish and wild- life branch, started an experi- mental program of shooting hen pheasants in a designated area in the Scandia district north of Vauxhall. After three years of study and experimental work biological studies showed there was no appreciable difference in popu- lation characteristics. The experimental hen pheas- ant season last fall had a bag limit of three roosters and two hens in the October season and five roosters and three hens for the remainder of the season. Nearly three thousand licence applicants took an estimated pheasants at a ratio of one lien per rooster. While hunt- ers were able to harvest ap- proximately 65 per cent of the total fall population in the study area, this was still less than the average total mortality that SAHSFL STATISTICS (Oct. 71 W L T F A Pts 111 13 8 3 1 0 62 46 6 .....2 2 0 53 36 4 2 2 0 57 46 4 1 CHHS Named Salesman of the Month Beny Chevrolet is pleased to announce that MURRAY nUU.OCK h a s achieved the honor of 'SALESMAN OF THE MONTH" for the month of September, 1971.

Conceni has been expressed that a hen pheasant season may be detrimental to the popula- tion by disproportionately low- ering the number o[ adult hens, although this is suspected to have happened in some parts of the United States when hens seasons were declared, it ha? now been proven that this will not happen because of the hen season that has been set. The fish and wildlife branch is asking the co operation of all hunters, ranchers and farm- ers to assist with new venture in the province. Crow counts earlier this sum- mer have indicated- a better than average pheasant popula- tion. With other upland game birds populations appearing to be holding their own even though there have been some severe restrictions placed on certain species. Alberta hunters, or vis- itors, should still find an abund- ance of game birds if they are willing to work for them.

A RECENT NEWS release from a respected con- servation organization of national stature dis- cussed iron shot as a substitute for lead in shot- shells for walcrfowling. It raised a question about the diligence being exercised by members of the Spoiling Arms and Am- munition Manufacturers' Institute (SAAMI) to solve this problem. It should be noted that individual members of SAAMI are devoting major effort to this matter. It must be recognized that difficult technical problems remain to be overcome since shells must function satisfactorily and safely in guns of many different types and makes. The concern expressed by conservationists and sportsmen in this matter is understandable. How- ever, there are recently uncovered facts that water- fowlers and gun owners in the United States and Canada ought to know about soft iron shot. They are: Fact No. 1 There is presently no reliable source able to deliver super-soft iron wire that consistently meets specifications required in making soft iron shot. Fact No. 2: Soft iron shot has been observed to cause choke deformation and barrel scoring in some makes and types of shotgun barrels. Fact No. 3: It appears that soft iron shot hardens with age, and such shot will "shoot out" chokes on many guns of modern manufacture. ONLY TWO COMPANIES now make super-soft iron wire, the material required to make soft iron shot. It is not a "shelf item" for ready delivery. These companies are unable to reproduce consistently the required specifications. Iron wire that fails to meet specifications cannot be used to make satis- factory soft iron shot. The tests conducted by the Bureau of Sport Fish- eries and Wildlife at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Laurel. Maryland, were intended to deter- mine the "mortality "efficiency" of soft iron shot. They were not meant to test guns and gun barrels. It is true that the two gun barrels used, in which a total of about one thousand shots were fired, showed no barrel or choke damage. Subsequent firing tests by two loading companies used different makes of guiis with various interior barrel profiles and choke designs. All of them were typical examples of shotguns currently used by North American waterfowlers. Results show forcing cone changes, barrel scoring, and choke deformation after 200 to loads of iron shot were fired. PLASTIC CUP WADS were used. Tlie load of soft iron shot moving through the barrel appears to act as a peening hammer causing measurable changes in chokes despite the plastic collar around the shot. Movement of metal in the forcing cones was also discernible in some guns. Scratches or scor- ing were plainy visible in some tubes. It is too early to tell if these changes affect gun safety. They do affect choke performance and pat- terning ability of the gun. Until soft iron shot is available with some degree of reliability, it is not possible to conduct tests on the scale required to give meaningful, reproducible results. A year and a half after the Patuxent tests sam- ples of unused shot were studied. It had age-harden- ed by about 25 per cent. Tlie quantity of this shot was inadequate to permit firing tests. Enough is known about iron shot in shotgun barrels to make it clear that there would be barrel wear and choke dam- age from even modest use of such "aged" shot. Be aware that to a majority of sportsmen a firearm is forever or at least for his own gen- eration and maybe into the next. More important than a consumer's irritation over scratches in the tubes of his favorite double gun, or a bulge in the choke-end of his pet autoloader, are potential safety and performance shortcomings. This can only be evaluated through extensive firing tests with shotguns representing a cross-section of guns made in the past 50 years. Such tests are not pos- sible until the technological problems producing soft iron shot of uniform quality are solved. Members of SAAMI independently, separately, and aggressively are pursuing programs to bring soft iron shot into production. Tbey are attempting to keep government agencies and conservationists concerned for North American waterfowl resources fully informed of their progress. Good hunting. Straight shooting. to pull ahead of Sara Elchev- erry in passes completed during a career. Lancaster now has 10 more than Etcheverry com- pleted in seven seasons with Montreal Aloticttcs. Etcheverry now is the Alouctles' head coach. Touchdown passes to Allan Ford and Bobby Thompson were among Lancaster's com- pletions, giving him a career ,olal of 185. That equals the record set by Buss Jackson in 12 seasons with Ottawa Rough Riders. Earlier in the season, Lancas- ter set career records for pass- ng yardage, passes thrown and interceptions. Fullback George Reed scored the other Saskatchewan touch- down and rushed for 162 yards to close in on the career rushing record held by Johnny Bright. Reed, in liis ninth season, needs another 119 yards to catch Bright, who rushed for yards in 13 campaigns with Cal- gary Stampeders and Edmonion Eskimos. Jack Abcndschan hooted two field goals, two converts and two singles as the second-place Roughriders increased their margin to three points over Winnipeg Blue Bombers and British Columbia Lions, co-hold- ers of third place in Hie Western Conference. The Ticats, unable to win on a two-game western swing, blew a chance to pull out of a second- place tie with the Alouettes in the Eastern Conference. Max Anderson and Lewis Porter scored touchdowns for Hamilton but its comeback ef- fort foundered on fourth-quarter pass interceptions by Wayne Shaw and Jim Walter of the Roughriders. Tommy Joe Coffey kicked two converts, a field goal and a sin- gle and Joe Zuger two singles for the Tiger-Cats, who lost 17-1 to Calgary Sunday. RIDERS LOSE PEARCE The win cost Saskatchewan a player. Bob Pearce, who has been playing both ways since an injury to Silas McKinnie, suf- fered a broken bone in his right leg in the first quarter and is expected to be out of action for the rest of the season. Coffey's 42-yard field goal pushed Hamilton ahead in the first quarter, but Saskatchewan stormed back with 15 points in the second quarter on Reed's running and Lancaster's pass- ing. In boosting lus season rushing total to 973 yards, Reed added to career records for most car- ries, 2.113, most touchdowns rushing, 92, and most touch- downs scored, 93. The Ticats managed to nar- row the Saskatchewan lead to 21-20 early in the fourth quarter caigary but the rally was snuffed out when the late interceptions led j Winnipeg to field goals by Abendschan. Saskatchewan rushed for 238 yards compared with Hamil- ton's 127 and had 155 yards passing. Zuger, who completed eight of 21 pass attempts, col- lected 102 yards through the air. Punting was the only category where the Ticats had an edge. Zuger punted for an average of 55.4 yards compared with Ford's 36.4. SASKATCHEWAN J!

Tlie young Sugar King squad have the raw material to pro- duce a contender in the Alber- ta Junior Hockey League, but currently lack the experience, due to lack of ice time. The Sugar Kings will be on the road -this weekend as they ope.i up their 1971-72 campaign in Edmonton. Saturday night the Kings will take on the Maple Leafs, while Sunday they'll travel back south to Red Deer for a game with the defending champion Rustlers. In last night's encounter, the Centennials, members of the Western Canada Major Junior Hockey League, proved that experience is one of the main factors in having a winning team. The Centennials racked up four goals in each of the three periods last night, as they con- tinually penetrated across the King's blueline. Brian Walker, the veteran Centennial's captain was treat to watch, as he displayed leadership on the ice. Walker paced the Centennials attack with three goals and two assists during the two periods he was used while Doug Horbul and Derrick Black chipped in with two goals apiece. Black had toiled with the Su- gar Kings in the early stages last season. Dave George, a former Su- gar King along with Jim Wei-1 Junior league. vik and Al Bianchin aided with inglctons. Chris McMaslers and George McRea managed a goal each for the Kings. During the three periods of play, the S'ngar Kings split 16 minor penalties with the Cen- tennials, along with two ma- jors and two game misconducts. Rick Lalnnde of the Kings and Gare had a late second period tussle while entering the penalty box, costing them five minutes each while McCrea and Watson received game miscon- ducts for entering in the fracus. Meanwhile in Calgary Dan Mandryk scored three third-pe- riod goals to give Calgary Ca- nucks a 7-3 win over Calgary Cougars in an Alberta Junior Hockey League game Wednes- day night. Dale Eloschuk had two goals for the Canucks, while Dennis Olmstead and Don Snowden collected one eacli. The Cougars got goals from Bob Murray, Cliff Hendrickson and Rick Norndon. The Cougars were assessed 19 of 26 penalties including three of six majors. Doug Bla- ney of the Cougars and Blaine McCloud and Mark Lomenda of the Canucks were given game misconducts for fighting. Edmonton Monarchs scored five goals in the second period and then coasted to an 8-2 vic- tory over Edmonion Movers in an exhibition hockey game be- fore about 300 fans Wednesday night.
