Hunting of pheasants controversial subject By DENNIS McDONALO Alberta Fish and Wildlife llth of a series How does hunting affect pheasants? Few other topics in game management cause more controversy among biologists, hunters and landowners than this one! The simple fact that hunting kills pheasants does not satisfactorily answer the question. FLUORIDATION MORE DOCTORS CAUTION Dr William Costain, M.B. of Toronto, Ontario in a letter to the editor of the Canadian Medical Association Journal states in part: "One need not be a specialist to see how sodium fluoride lowers calcuim blood levels. One need only remember that in acute sodium fluoride (or fluorine ion) poisoning, the poisonous factor is in the sudden loss of calcium in the blood which woulc eventually lead to convulsions and death. It must be remembered also that the only treatment for the poisoning is to neutralize and restore calcium to the blood. One may say that calcium is the very crux of the whole situation and calcium and calcium levels must never be lowered." Dr James B Sumner, Director of Enzyme Chemistry, Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition, Cornell University, Nobel Prize Winner for his work in the field of Enzyme Chemistry said: "We ought to go slowly. Everybody knows fluorine and fluorides are very poisonous substances and we use them in enzyme chemistry to poison enzymes, those vital agents in the body. Dr. Sumner went on to say, "That is the reason things are poisoned, because the enzymes are poisoned and that is why animals and plants die." Dr J B Patrick, Research Chemist said: Fluoride is one of the most potent enzyme inhibitors known- and inter- feres with the normal growth and metabolism of living cells Dr Patrick further stated, "Because it is a potent agent it should be administered only to those who need' it under competent professional supervision in controlled amounts. In other words, it should be treated like the powerful agent it is." Dr C G Dobbs (PH: A.R.C.S.) Bangor, Wales, England reports- "The claim that fluoridatoon is one of 'nature's ex- periments' is not valid because the salts put into the water supply, Sodium fluoride or Silicofluoride are industrial products never found in natural water or in organisms. They are, furthermore notoriously toxic, sufficiently so to be used as insecticides. Calcium fluoride, on the other hand which is the form commonly found in Natural waters is not toxic enough for such uses." Fluoridation is unscientific and unnecessary because fluoride can easily be obtained in tablet and other forms. On October 16 Vote Against X LETHBRIDGE SAFE WATER COMMITTEE 920 2nd AVWIIM A. North Phorte 327-7142 As explained in a previous article in this series, hunting can actually improve phea- sant production by .altering the sex ratio of the population. But, before reviewing how this can happen, two other facts should be realized. First, pheasants are the only game birds in Alberta whose sexes can be dis- tinguished while the birds are inflight This is due to distinct differences in coloration of cocks and hens. This factor enables wildlife biologists to manage the species by sex as hunters can selectively shoot cocks or hens in accordance with hunting regulations. Note two points about this statement. It pertains to cock pheasants only and it applies to areas where good pheasant -habitat still exists. Two factors operate in- areas of good habitat. One is the nature of the bird and the EVER-LITE ELfCTMC LTD. APPOINTMENT Ever-Lite Electric Limited is pleased to announce the appoint- ment of Mr Graham W.

DICK JOHNSTON FOR ALDERMAN ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE FUTURE Continual reassessments of the spending and budgeting pro- grams of the city.

As any hunter will testify, wild pheasants are the cagiest game bird of them all. Many a sly rooster has outsmarted his adversaries by crouching, hiding, running or flying to avoid being shot. As the hunting season progresses, cocks soon learn the best ways of avoiding hunters and they don't miss a trick in the book. A wily ringneck will crawl into a badger hole if need be. As the number of cocks declines during the season and those remaining become harder to locate, the law of diminishing returns comes into effect. Simply stated, this law says that as some cocks are the remaining ones become fewer and harder to find. Eventuially, a point is reach- ed when the birds are so dif- ficult to locate that hunters quit hunting. Fortunately, this point always occurs when the number of cocks remaining is still sufficient to ensure good breeding .the following year. Studies indicate that most hunters give up once cock numbers average about two per 100 acres. As outlined in an earlier ar- ticle, the ideal sex ratio for breeding purposes is one cock for every ten hens. Provided the pheasant population following the hunting season is comprised of at least one cock for every ten hens, everything is okay for next springs breeding season. Even though additional roosters will die during the winter due to natural causes, hens will also die at a similar rate. Thus the sex ratio will remain the same throughout the whiter-. Just as there is no advan- tage to a fanner to maintain two roosters among a flock of chickens when one can do the job, so the game manager regards it as useless to main- tain 2 or 3 cocks for every 10 hens when one will suffice for breeding purposes. For this reason, hunters are encourag- ed to harvest over eighty per cent of the cock pheasants each fall. Such a harvest is rarely, if ever, attained in good habitat areas doe to the Law of Diminishing Returns. In areas of poor pheasant habitat, the birds are forced to concentrate in fewer patches of cover where they are more susceptible to hunting, predators, blizzards and other causes of death. In such areas, extreme banting pressure presumably could kill such a high proportion of the cocks that breeding could be im- paired the following spring. However, the sonrtion is not to shoot fewer codes in these areas. The best solution is to improve habitat conditions so hunting them out becomes much more difficult In this way, the Law of Diminishing Returns will insure thatasuf- fiaent proportion of codes survive for breeding purposes. In addition, more pheasants of both sexes will live in these areas year round due to tbeir increased carrying capacity. Next week: Hea Pbeasaat Good or Batf?
