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-

snowed some each day, the weather
was moderate most of the time. 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.
