FOR FATHER: A leather
slipper for leisure hours.
FOR SISTER: A dressy

for the trappers and coon hunters.
Coon season ends January 15 and
the local hunters so far have had an
exceptionally good season. Some of
the club members have pelted better
than 10 coon skins to date this season.
Mink,. muskrat, opposum and skunk
season runs to January 15 also.
The muskrat harvest will break all
records if the heavy catches in the
district hold up to the end of the
season. Some of the trappers have
better than 200 rats to their credit al-
ready, and at an approximate price of
$2.00 per rat that means quite a chunk
of money for their efforts.
Jeese Manges has what is known as
a “shell-saver dog” to accompany him
on his hunting expeditions. In a few
minutes of hunting the dog caught
for Jesse two nice ringnecks. The
birds were cripples and Jesse was
able to go home with his limit without
firing a shot.
Dogs are always given a lot of
credit for helping the hunters find
birds that are knocked down. Such
birds many times with only broken
wings, are unable to fly and can es
cape a hunter by out running him.
Dogs are a valuable asset to the
hunter these days with the war on
and a shortage of shells. If the gov
ernment does not release shells for
the next bird season there will be few
hunters next year in the field for the
few shells horded for this year’s hunt
ing season are practically exhausted.
Very few shells are left over for next

Jay Hartman is among the more
fortunate trappers for he caught a
mink with a set for muskrat. Mink
will bring from S6 to $10 per pelt
depending on the size of the animal.
The shooting of two fox squirrels
out of season last Wednesday after
noon caused considerable agitation
among sportsmen of the community.
The open season on these animals has
been out since Sept. 30th and the
shooting brought a reaction from the
club directors who have been actively
engaged the past two years in an in
tensive restocking program for the
propagation of these animals.
Howard Langstaff, supervisor for
the conservation district, and Rudy
Clevenger, Allen County game war
den ,called to investigate the case
agreed to give the two boys a chance
before pressing charges, after the
sportsmen club officers pleaded to
have the youngsters placed under the
custody of the club directors for a
probational period.
The hunting licenses of the two
youths have been revoked and the

return of the hunting privileges to the
The two lads have an opportunity
to redeem themselves since we are
led to believe the shooting was done
in an unthinking manner and they
will be given every chance to become
interested in conservation and help in
the program of the local club. If the
lack of interest developes, the game
wardens will again take up the mat
ter and press charges.
The two boys have agreed to attend
the meetings of the club each month
and will assume their share of the
work of developing game reserves,
erecting squirrel dens and feeding
stations, and releasing game and fish
in the community restocking program.
The club directors have full confi
dence in the two boys and hope that
arrangements can be made to restore
the hunting privileges to the two
budding young sportsmen.
