Hunters at Mt. Cory are having a barrel of fun and local boys are sat urated with the fever. More and more hunters are taking up the sport and it looks as if the wily crow has met his Waterloo as the activity becomes popular. First round of the men’s basketball league is almost over with the Rockets and Tigers tied for first place. Another round will be played, followed by a tournament for all the teams, which will run into March.

Elm Street Bluffton phone 260-W’ Open Saturday Evenings CONSERVATION AFFAIRS Happenings Affecting Woods, Waters and Wildlife By THE BLUFFTON COMMUNITY SPORTSMEN’S CLUB, INC. Last Thursday two car loads of Bluffton gunners made a bee line for a roost near Pandora where scouts had reported the birds were congre gated. In the gang were: Denver Augs burger, Floyd Hardwick, Russ Mont gomery, John Gilbert, Paul E. Henry, Oscar Wenger, Lowell Habegger and Don Cuppies, all eager for the sport ahead. Under cover of darkness, just e nough moonlight to make out what they were doing, the hunters sur rounded a roost w’here hundreds of crows had settled on three trees for the night. In such a setting buck fever runs rampant. Crows are jittery, some al ways flopping their wings, taking off for a short flight, returning to light on the same limb and shake off a score of others. Continuous move ment amid a din of constant crow hollering gives the hunters itchy trigger fingers as they slowly close in for the kill. Finally, the signal shot is fired, and the bombardment started. The air alive with countless hundreds of birds, hunters firing continuously with 12 guages at crows milling a round in confusion, makes a sight to be long remembered. Jones kept the Rockets in the ball game by taking top scoring honor for the evening with 23 points. In the last game of the evening, the 5-Potatoes got off to a fast start and wound up by defeating the Olympics 41-30. Scoring honors for the winners were divided between Stonehill and Kindle with 9 points each, while H. Klay topped the losers with 12 points. The league standings as of Feb. 1st are as follows: W Pct.

Wenger director in charge. Bluffton Legion Team Wins Again Bluffton Legionaires appeared one step nearer the Allen County amateur basketball league crown last week with a one-sided 60 to 34 victory The score is tallied and 40 crow’s are piled up in a heap. Later, the same evening in a similar setting 20 more were shot, bringing the total to 60 for the evening. So a good time is had. The hunter and farmer alike benefitted. The hunters full of memories of the hunt head home to collect their crow bounty. The farmer rid of a few more corn pulling pests that eat not only his grain, but destroy countless numbers of pheasant and song bird eggs. Last year the Sportsmen’s Club paid bounty on 363 crows and this year during January over 200 of the black rascals were killed. Bounty ap propriations have not yet been au thorized for 1947, but from all indi cations the club will have to add a substantial increase to the fund. In addition bounty was paid on 88 hawks and 2 foxes during 1946. Hunt Planned For Weekend Russell Montgomery, head of the club predator department, says an other crow hunt will be held this weekend if conditions permit.
