Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta rVWey, OctabeV M. W IETHMIOOI HEMUO ALL SET TO TALK TURKEY' Three of 30 birds brought from Montana to southern Alberta by the South- ern Alberta Outdoorsmen and Foremost Fish and Game Association raise hopes of establishing still another game bird population for the area. In Alberta, wild turkeys have previously been slocked in the Cypress Hills, the Porcupine Hills and near Stettler- From left to right: Ken Kultgen, Alva Bair and Vern Arnold prepare to free wild turkeys in the badlands along the lower Milk River valley. -Tom Willock Photos. Thirty wild turkeys released along river ON GOOD TERMS Writing-On-Stone Provincial Park warden Scotty Shear ap- pears to be on good terms with this wild Merriam's turkey destined for release in Writ- ing-On-Sfone Park. By TOM WILLOCK Herald News Service MILK RIVER The gobble of wild turkeys may well be the greeting received by visit- ors to the Milk River valley this fall. The maze of coulees adjacent to the Milk River and the more remote areas of the large pro- glacial alley through which the river passes have long been regarded by southern Alberta hunters as one of the "hot" spots for both upland bird and big game hunting. Through the combined efforts of the Southern Alberta Out- rloorsmen's club of Milk River, Warner and Coutls and the Foremost Fish and Game As- sociation, 30 wild turkeys were released along the river this fall in hopes of establishing the species as an additional game bird in the area. The project was financed by donations from residents of the ject were initiated nearly three years ago, following an invita- tional speaking visit to Mon- tana's Toole County Sports- men's Association by Alva Bair of Milk River, accompanied by Vern Arnold of Foremost, then vice-president of the Alberta Fish and Game Association. At that meeting, a Montana biologist's report discussed a proposed introduction of tur- keys to the Sweetgrass Hills. However, it was noted that the more suitable habitat of the Milk River valley to the north would greatly decrease tha chances for success of such a program. It was felt that turkeys stocked hi the SSveet- grass Hills would in all prob- ability move north to the more attractive Alberta region and the Toole County club subse- quently abandoned the project.

Both plant-sites, the first at Writing- On-Rtone Provincial Park and the second in the badlands to Hie east, received 15 birds, five males and ten females. CO-OPERATION With a modicum of luck and the continuing co-operation of hunters and residents of the area there is every hope that the new residents will become firmly established. Both the Southern Alberta Outdoorsmen and the Foremost Fish and Game Association would like to offer their sin- cere thanks for the support and co-operation provided by the residents of the Foremost, Milk River, Coutts and Warner dis- tricts.

Hopes for the program were raised when inquiries indicated that the state of Nebraska was willing to participate in an ex- change of Alberta grey (Hun- garian) partridges for wild- trapped turkeys. The partridges were deliver- ed but, after two years of wait- ing, tjlis plan was abandoned when Nebraska proved unable to provide the turkeys in ex- change. Recently the joint efforts of climaxed with Milk River of Alva Bair and Foremost dis- trict residents, Vern Arnold and two clubs return to females pen-raised for stocking purposes, were purchased for S300.00 from Paul McAdam's Jumping Rainbow Ranch on the Yellowstone River near Livingstone, Montana.

COALDALE (HNS) At its recent regular meeting the Coaldale Fish and Game As- sociation decided to urge "sportsmen to refrain from shooting hen pheasants." The new legislation permits one hen pheasant per hunter, per day. There were several persons present to explain why the leg- islation had come into being and point out that there were or may be advantages. Despite the information, given the majority was strong- ly opposed to the policy to kill hen pheasants. At a provincial convention of the fish and game associations a few years ago the resolution was made to allow this for one season. At the meeting it was stated possibly the hunting of the hens should only have been opened for part of the regular season. With the new rule hunters will be able to shoot two cocks and one hen per day each. The presbvferial fall meet- ing will be held at Bow IslanrJ, Nov. 4. The theme will be "Lis- ten, Christian."
