Pheasant Season Opens L|d by ex-service men, an army of hunters will take to the fields Friday morning at 11:00 a. m. to fire the first shots in the 1945 upland game season, with most of most of the hunters with most of the hunters training their guns on pheasants. State conservation department of ficials expect a sharp increase in the number of hunters, but the prediction is they will have a hard time filling their bags in the Bluffton area. The shell situation has eased ma terially locally and most hunters are equipped with sufficient shells for the season. The most acute shortage is on .20 and .410 gauge ammunition. These loads are practically unobtain- Hunting Seasoa able altho an ample supply of 12 gauge shells are to be had. The out of-town hunters" will have a hard time begging shells from the dealer and the same goes for the local fellow who has hoarded a supply. Remember to respect the farmer, ask his permission to hunt, be' a good sportsman and take only 2 cock birds a day and limit yourself to 4 in pos session after the first day.

Canadian Deer Hunters Return Deer hunting continued to make most of the news on the Bluffton hunting front the past two weeks. Local nimrods waited in eagerness to learn the news of the big hunt con ducted in Canada by two parties of fourteen deer hunters from the Bluff ton locality. One party of four hunters consist ing of Emory Benroth, Walter Ben roth, Herman Bosse and E. G. Griffith enjoyed 5^ days of hunting in the wilds near Thessalon, Ontario, nearly 700 miles from here.

With the aid of a guide the party hunted the area near Clear Lake in a spars ely settled area. The second group of 10 hunters made their camp at Bruce Mines, On tario, near Skookum Lake. In the party were: Ross Irwin, Fred Hahn, Lester Hahn, Wilbur Niswander, Rus sel Montgomery. Harold Montgomery, Leland Sechler, Joe Birchnaugh, Wil liam Hahn of Lima and Glen Eichel berger of Toledo. The group enjoyed good luck and brought home nine deer. Although no bears were killed by either party in the Bruce Mines area 63 bears were killed this year by the natives. The animals were causing a great deal of trouble among livestock which resulted in the offering of a 810 bounty for each animal. The bears had more or less migrated from the area as a result of the activity. Many deer were seen and in Mich igan on the way up two herds were seen which contained approximately 17 to 19 animals. The hunting party had plenty of excitement fishing the many lakes abounding the area and plenty of white fish and trout were taken on rod and reel. Two foxes, a red and a cross fox, were shot by the group and grouse hunting provided a great deal sport.
