In Progesl For ttle second year in a lOw, mallard ducks which spend toe winter in Kansas are the target of banding op- erations now being conducted by game offici s..Marvin. Sch: willing, watermwl project lead- er for the Kansa s Fore try, Fish and Game Commission reports that nearly 2,000 mem- bers of the mallard clan have already been captured in traps at several locations in the state. Immediately aRer they are taken, the ducks are band- dl and released back into the wild. Participating in the banding operation at nine different locations are game protectors. waterfowl area man~ers, bio- logists and game management agents of the U, s B~ish and Wildlife Service. Trapping and banding operations ),ave al- ready been completed at Che- hey Reservoir and ~re now in progress at the Nesho and Marais des Cygnes Waterfowl Management Areas as well as in Kearney county near Lakin. Other areas scheduled for the attention of banders are the Cimarren river - Meade lake complex, Lovell Reservoir - Jamestown area complex, Che- season. A total nf 20 persons received fines of $100 or more for game law violations. Taking and possessing small gv, me out of season was the most frequent violation during the three-month period with 86 arrests for this infraction. 69 were arrested for hunting with- out a license, 35 were appre- hended for taking game during illegal hours (night hunting) and 24 persons were charged with over the bag limit of small game. Hunting migra- tory birds with an unplugged gun acco.nted for ?7 of the arrests while 13 hunters were charged with hunting in closed refuge areas. Boating law violations were responsible for 16 arrests while 17 cases were filed a~ainst those who were fishing without licenses. 12 were charged with fishing by illegal methods. The remainder of the arrests were for miscellaneous infractiont of the laws and regulations. Commission BOoth At Kansas City Skew The Kansas Forestry,Fish and Game Commission Is once again represented this year at the Kansas City Boat, Sports season. Peabody states that the over- all success ratio was up slight- ly from the 1965 season when 14 per cent of the hunters brought down their deer. A total of 2,318 archers partici- pated in the season Just past and they harvested 358 ani- mals. Adults bucks made up the largest single class of deer faked with 53.9 per cent fall- ing in this category. Adult does accounted for 33.8 per cent of the kill and young deer shoot them. Obtaining permis- sion before hunting crows is Just as important as in any other type of hunting. Most landowners will readily give such permission since the crow is not held in high esteem. Irrespective of his good or bad points, the crow is still an elusive and wary bird and provides sportsmen with a lot of off-season shooting. Sunfish Family deer were taken during the last part of the season by per- sons who had been unsuccess- ful in bagging a large buck or doe. White-tailed deer were pre- dominant in the bag with nearly two-thirds of the har- vest being this species, 121 mule deer were taken com- pared to 237 white-tails. The top county for archers was Sheridan county with a total of 16 deer bagged with- in its confines. Next in order were McPherson with 14,Nor- Popular In Kansas The sunfishes make up the largest family of game fish in Kansas. Probably most ang- lers do not realize the large number of species present in waters of the state which are classified as sunfish. Some member of the family can be found in almost every body of water capable of support- ing fish life and most streams, rivers and lakes may contain as many as seven or more species. High on the list of favorites with anglers is the largemouth black bass which is not a true bass at all. It is the largest member of the sunfish family to be found "midway U.S.A." The spotted or "Kentucky" bass is also a sunfish as is the relatively rare smallmouth bass. Other widely distributed members of the clan include the bluegill, green sunfish and both black and white crappie. Each has its own requirements and preferences as to the type of water surroundings it likes best. But, the list doesn't end here. Other sunfishes not so wide- ly distributed and probably less commonly recognized in- clude the longear sunfish, orange spotted sunfish, rock bass and warmouth. To add confusion to the situation, many of the smaller sunfishes cross or hybridize producing fish which retain character- istics of both species, To fur- ther muddle the situation, there are sometimes serval enne Bottoms and Kirwin and Quivira National Wildlife Re- fuges. The immediate goal of the trappers is to band one- thousand mallards at each of the nine areas. The overall program, insti- gated by the Central Flyway Technical Commiltee, is in- tended to produce Sufficient in. formation so that an improced mallard management program can be formulated. At least three years of banding will be required in states of the cen- names applied to each species. For instance, a bluegill is often called a punkinseed or bream while the black crappie is sometimes referred to as a :alice bass. Almost any of the smaller species of sunfish may under one year of age amount- be called a "sun perch." ed to only 12.S per cent of th'e Regardless of what they are take. The most of the young called, the members of the sunfish family generally res- pond favorably to the offerings of the angler and provide a lot of pleasere for Kansas fish- errnen. Besides, they taste good after they come out of a frying pan. Mrs. R.
