GOOD QUAIL SEASON
Local Hunters Think They
Have Best Duck-Shooting
Outfit in State.
tfhen Daniel Boone desired to go
hunting he had only to shoulder his
rifle, call the dogs and set out in any
direction his fancy might list. Not so
wlth a Columbian today. In the
first place he probably has no dog to
call; for the high cost of living has
long' since come between man and hia
-best friend." Also, the man of
moderate means hesitates to bid
against the Allies for ammunition nor
would he dare go wherever he liked
to hunt, else some farmer would hall
him before a justice of the peace for
trespass. Moreover, Mr. Columbian
must provide himself with a small
slip of paper costing one dollar and
called a hunting license. He then
understands the- spirit behind that old
bit of Presbyterian prayer, "Lord, we
thank thee for the blessed right of
freedom without license." Lastly, game
Is scarce and may be- shot only in
Despite these drawbacks, 5C0 hunt
ing licenses have been taken out in
Boone County this year. This is 25
short of the number issued by the
same time last year. Ducks, geese
and quail comprise nearly all the
ramt Of course squirrels, 'possums,
coons and rabbits are more or less"
plentiful. They, however, are hunted
by the farmers, who may hunt without
license on their own and rented land.
Ducks and geese are found on the
Missouri River. Quail are spread
pretty well over the county wherever
there are hiding places. Buck-brush,
thickets of small brush and patches of
grass tufts afford ideal covers for
quail, especially when in a draw.
Quails must be near water. This sea
son, which has had enough rain, al
lows them a wide range of feeding. In
dry seasons they run mostly In the
Missouri River bottoms.
No More o Hunts.
Fox-hunting, which used to be
popular with many Columbians, has
died out. Barbed wire fences, which
prevent the man on horseback from
following, and the higher cost of feed
ing hounds are responsible. Foxes
-ire sUll plentiful. No one keeps a pack
of hounds now. E. M. Watson, who
for years kept several dogs, has only
Dr. R. L. Lockridge, 1409 Hinkson
avenue, and J. E. Higbee, 1405 East
Broadway, are two of the town's most
successful quail hunters. They hunt
together a great deal. Both like to
use two or three dogs. One dog. they
say, cannot put the proper style and
test Into his work. They get as much
1 enjojment in watching the rivalry
among the dogs, and how each one
stops stock still upon striking the
coey from a different approach, as
they get in bagging the quail.
It is a nicety of hunting ethics with
both men not to shoot till the bird Is
on the wing and not to shoot the sec
ond time at a bird unless It is crippled
at the first shot. They expect to bring
down a quail for every shot in the
open and one for every two shots in
brush. Doctor Lockridge attends trap
shoots and has won several prizes. He
used to bag fifty quails in a day be
fore, a limit was set. .A hunter now
may kill only ten birds in one day and
must not have more than fifteen in his
possession at one time.
Party Rags 117 Ducks.
Duck and geese shooting has be
come an institution with Dr. E. H.
Smith, L. E. Hill and J. M. Taylor,
who hae taken a camping trip to
gether on the Missouri River each fall
for the last eleven years. This fall
season they set up camp on Wolf's
Island, opposite Little Bonne Femme
Creek, staying there from October 28
to November 6. They killed 117 ducks.
mostly mallards. Only one flock of
geese was seen; most of the geese had
already passed on.
To kill ducks says Mr. Hill, re
quires Infinite patience. The three men
would stand in their zinc boxes, which
were sunk In the ground to protect
the hunters from dampness, from 8
o'clock till 11 in the morning motion
less, waiting for the ducks. Some
mornings no ducks came in. When a
flock decided to alight near there is
would circle two or three times to as
sure itself. It was then that the wait
would become the most wearing; for
the men did not dare even to turn their
heads to see whether the ducks were
coming back, lest they be detected.
Only when the ducks let their feet
dangle could the men depend upon
When the wild ducks had been en
ticed within gunshot by the quacking
of Mr. Taylor's decoy ducks, the
shooters would scare them up and
hegln firing. The flock out of range,
they would untie their motor-boat and
Rather the ducks. By picking and
drawing the ducks and burying them
under two feet or sand they were able
to bring seeral home in good con
dition. Messrs. Hill, Smith and Taylor think
they have the nearest complete duck
hooting outfit in the state. Two
roomy tents, shotguns and rifles, a
mOtnr that to nitontinHlf) in H mwbOilt.
& Erst aid equipment, a range, rubber'
hip boots and tables and chairs are
part of the equipment.
R. L. Hill, D. V. Vandiver, Joe Estes
and Porter Mitchell recently spent
several days in duck shooting on the
Missouri. This party goes to the Mis
souri each year.
The open season for killing ducks
and geese begins September 15 and
lasts till April 31. A hunter must not
kill more than fifteen in one day nor
have more than twenty-five in his pos
session at one time.

Although only two Valley football
games were played Saturday the Val
ley title for 1917 Is today securely at
rest in the Nebraska camp by virtue
of the Cornhuskers" 13 to 3 victory
over Kansas, the only other contender.
Missouri's hopes for the title perished
several game ago, but the 19 to 3
victory over Washington has raised
the spirit of the Missouri rooters for a
chance at downing the Jayhawkers on
Rollins Field on Thanksgiving Day.
Kansas looks good for second place
in the Valley race unless Missouri
can spurt to that position by winning
the Turkey Day contest. Kansas has
defeated the Ames and Kansas Aggies.
Both these teams won against Mis
souri, although .the Missourians.may
prove that the score did not Indicate
the strength of the teams. Nebraska
made merry with Missouri to the tune
of 52 to 0, while the Kansas eleven
had the best of their game with Ne
braska in the first half and scored
three points. Apparently the Huskers
let the Kansas team, wear itself out
and when the machine-like drives of
the heavier team were started the
Jayhawkers found themselves against
the strongest team in the Valley and
one which classes with the best in the
Missourians are not enthusiastic
about the way Kansas made their
score. Field goals have decided sev
eral close Missouri-Kansas games 'and
although there Is not a great probabili
ty of such a close score as to make three
points valuable on Thanksgiving any
Tiger or Jayhawker rooter will say
that "dope" can not be depended upon
for this annual classic.
Local football followers who saw
the game at Lawrence were not im
pressed with the showing of Kansas
and assert that Nebraska did not put
up the same kind of a game as they
did against the Tigers.
The Washington game resulted as
expected. There was little doubt but
that Missouri would win. Little can be
deduced from the playing of the Tigers
as the substitutions were so numerous
that there was little chance to see
what an organized team would have
Ames. Drake and the Kansas Aggies
were idle Saturday but all of these
teams are out of the Valley rare.

Ohio State Wins
An error was made yesterday in the
Missourian in giving the score of the
Ohio State-Illinois game. Ohio State
won the game 13 to 0, and thus he
came the champions of the Western
Conference. The Syracuse-Colgate
score should have read, Syracuse 27,
Colgate 7, and Notre Dame defeated
Indiana 23 to 0, instead of Depauw.
In Cross Country Meet.
Missouri finished third in the Mis
souri Valley Cross Country Meet at
Manhattan Saturday. Three Ames
runners finished ahead of any of the
other contestants and the Iowans
easily won the run with a total of 24
Kansas, with 49 points, was second;
Missouri came next with 69 points and
the Kansas Aggies were fourth.
Hawthorne of Ames clipped two
minutes off the record for the Aggie
5-mile course, when he broke the tape
more than 150 yards ahead of
his teammate, Cromer, who was sec
ond. Hawthorne's time was twenty
six minutes and fifty-six seconds.
The Ames men ran consistently
throughout the trio, alternating in the
lead the exent of run. The best part
of the race was the sprint of Dewalt of
Kansas, who finished only a yard
ahead of Foreman, of Aggies, who had
a lead of ten yards from the tape. The
