Hammersly, the Government's best expert coyote hunter, who is stationed on th Fremont National Forest Reserve, in Lake county, has come to Wallowa county to assist In '-he coyote extermination campaign, Mr. Haraimersily has a record! of hav ing killed more coyotes than any other Government hunter. Last year Ms record was 372 and this year he has killed 300 and practically has five months more, until July 1, He haa been Instructed to hunf la Wallowa county four months. Two years 'ago the Agricultural Department declde4 to experiment with official hunters whose exclus ive duty would be the killing of destructive- wild animals. Hammersly was the fifth appointed and his rec ord for killing coyotes. at,nd far jeyond reach of his nearest compet itor. The position pays a salary of $ 100 a month, and expenses., T hunter also gets th bounty on all coyotes killed and Hammersly has augmented hi pay to 500 and $600 i month. Bait, Is Experts Secret "My most successful way of exter minating coyotes Is toy trapping," says Hammersly. "The biggest catch m. one day I ever made was 18 out f 22 sets. The best record I ever made with a rifle waa three. I do lot go much on poison. Coyotes have a great deal of instinct and when they begin to feel sick find some kind of emetic and expel the P-olson much the same a if theywere created by a doctor. About the only way I have been able to poison them is by using capsules, so that the poison will get beyond their stom ich. But trapping; Is the beat ' meth od. It is all in the bait. I mix my )vn halt, and there la the secret. The Government hunters have been of more benefit to sheep and cattlemen than all other offtcal agencies combined. When sheep and cattlemen are troubled with coyotes all .they have to do Is request a Gov ernment hunter and the pests are Aoon exterminated; There Is money In the job, but the standard is high. Vou must make good. A record of 300 a year Is considered a good av erage." Mr. Hammersly was born, and rear ad In Lake county and was always a crack shot with a rifle and expert hunter. He ,was formerly a forest ranger and two years ago took the Civil Service examination tor Gov ernment hunter. CHURCH SERVICES.
