BAD YEAR FOR GAME
Severe Winter Made the
Quail and Rabbits Scarce,
a Hunter Says.
FEW DUCKS KILLED
Columbia Sportsmen Are Not
Having Success on
One of the poorest hunting seasons
in a decade now is oppressing the
spirits of Boone County huntsmen, ac
cording to J. L. Stephens of the
Stephens Publishing Company. The
season, as far as weather and other
outward conditions are concerned,
seems ery good, but game of any
sort is scarce.
Mr. Stephens, in past hunting sea
sons as late as last year has been
able to sight enough quarry near Col
umbia to make an interesting day.
Some of his trips would be nine or
ten miles into the country sometimes
over into Callaway County. But as
a rule it has not been necessary to
make long hikes for small game. This
year, however, on recent trips, he has
seen very little game of any sort.
"I am at a loss for the reason for
the scarcity this year," he said. "I
suppose it is due to the hard winter
last year. Seeral farmers have told
me about finding quail frozen to death
last winter; often whole covies were
found dead. This naturally decreases
the number of birds this year.
"The same is true of rabbits. Usu
ally around here in Boone County, a
day at hunting is materially inconven
ienced by the numbers of the little
intruders. The dogs would be tired
out chasing the rabbits and often
would frighten away a covey of quail
hiking after them. But when I re
cently spent a day in search of quail
and found so few, I thought I would
try for a rabbit or so. And yet in
several hours of tramping I saw only
three rabbits. They, too, seem to have
been killed in great numbers by the
seere weather last year.
"Another thing I hae decided upon
is that quail must migrate frequently.
In different tramps about the country,
I hao several times found a covey in
this or that corner behind' a fence or
other place that might easily be iden
tified. When I would later return, I
could find no birds w hatever, although
the dogs would be able to dig up
traces of them. On the whole this
season, hunting is a disappointment
to the sportsmen of Boone County, at
least, and possibly in the state, if the
same conditions prevail."
The duck hunting also is said to be

very poor this season. Very few of
the wild fowl have been bagged, even
by the old timers, the successful
"sharks." Several parties have been
made up to start from here and hunt
along the river near Rocheport, but
practically all have returned with
empty game bags. The present good
season is thought to be faorable to
an increase of game and better hunt
ing nest year.
