They keep coming, and I'm happy to pass them on! I'm speaking of outdated migra- tory bird (duck) hunting stamps and Kansas upland game bird stamps, which are put to exceptionally good use by the Ducks Unlimited peo- ple. They ~ell the old stamps to collectors all over the world, then use the money for the improvement and construction of duck and goose nesting hab- itat in Canada and the north. ern U, S. rm most happy to collect them and forward them on to the proper people in DU headquarters. So, if you've got a stamp or two lying around. send it along to me at Boz 1028. Pratt, Kansas (67124).

Shots And Sinkers Nebraska has deleted from its huP.ting laws the require- ment that a nimrod can have only three shells in a shotgun. when seeking anything other than migratory birds....I know from experience that most out- door writers, when they have a day off, go hunting or fish- ing. i found out the other day that game protectors of the Kansas Fish and Game Com- mission are all in favor of "busman holidays", too. Three of them - Gene Hitt, Pratt; J. C. Morgan, Valley l Center and Charles Schmidt-! berger, Marion - took a day off and fished a private pond in the Pratt area. Late aL night, they called me at my 'hOme and asked that I take a picture of their catch. It was one of the finest string of fish I've seen in years - a limit of 30 channel cats from 3 to pounds. The total catch weighed more than 125 pounds. If your club or city is planning a "fishing derby" for children this year, you can get some good help from the good folks at Cortland Line Company, Courtland, New York. Co,t- land's Dick Jennings would be most happy to send several coils of famous 333 fly line. spools of braided and meo- channel catfish in the lake weigh up to four pounds, wall- eyes are two pounds, and sev- eral 10 and 12 ounce bluegill were caught in biologists' nets, during a recent northern pike "milking" operation. Trees And Shrubs Planted in Game Areas Eleven game management and public hunting areas con- trolled by the Kansas Forestry. Fish and Game Commission will provide better 'habitat for game in the future, thanks to continued development through the planting of shrubs and trees. Charles Henderson, develop: ment and management super- visor for the Commission, an- nounces~ that 67,250 trees and shrubs have recently been planted at eight game man- agement areas adjacent to fed- eral reservoirs in Kansas and at Cheyenne Bottoms. Strip Pits management area and the Kingman County Game Man- agement Area. The plantings are designed to add woody vegetation in areas where ad- ditional game habitat is need- ed. Species planted include mul. riflers rose, American plum, fragrant sumac, red cedar, Russian olive, sandhill plum and several others. These plantings are in addition tel grass and legume plantings es- tablished on many of the areas this spring to provide nesting and escape cover. To produce maximum popu- lations of upland game birds and animals, a mixture of ve- getative growth of various types is necessary, according to Henderson. Public hunting areas of the Commission are managed for top production of game, taking into considera. tion the species most suitable for each individual' area. Mall Carriers Lend Assistance To Game Kansas rural mail carriers will be responding soon to an. other request from the Fish and Game Commission for as. sistance in counting the state s game population. Four times a year, ~uestion- aires are sent to 315 post offices in every Kansas county requesting help from the car. riers who drive the highways and byways delivering mail on rural and star routes. Approxi- mately 700 carriers respond with information needed to help manage wildlife in the Sunflower State. Game biologists of the Fish and Game Commission put re- suits of the mail carrier survey to good use. In the past. it has been adequately reflective of the game populations in var- ious parts of the state. Mail carriers record the actual numbers of upland game spe- cies they see during a four- day period while driving their routes. The total sightings. when compared with previous I I nrl-- CORN, MILO, AND FORAGE SORGIIUM Formoso, Kansas L Ill IN i FR 4-2635, Courtland I / III The mail carrier survey was started in 1962 ~nd involves censusing of all species of up- iand game birds and small game animals in the state, The cooperating carriers gen- erally do an excellent job, of reporting and pile up some astounding statistics. For in- stance, during each four-day census period, these men drive about 180,000 miles. This is equal to seven trips around the world. The mileage rolled up during the four yearly counts is equal to three one-way trips to the moon. Obviously, it would be impossible for the Fish and Game Commission to obtain this amount of information without the cooperation of the fellows who drive through rain, sleet, snow and howiin winds to deposit mail in farmer's mailbox. Fish-Gems Display To Trlple-I Show Liberal -- It will be "show time" again for the Kansas Fish and Game Commission April 27-30 The Commission's attractive 20-foot display booth, complete with live animals and fish, will be one of the attractions this year at the annual Triple-I Show at Liberal, sponsored by the Western Kansas Manufac- turers Association, Inc. The booth will include two large aquariums of fish and a pair of 9-month-old Kansas bobcats Commission personnel from Pratt and the Southwest Kan- sas district will be on hand to pass out literature and to chat with show visitors about fish- ing and hunting in Kansas. New Lakes Receive Initial Stocking Pratt-- New Fish and Game Commission state lakes in KS- own and Lane counties have received an initial stocking of fish. Roy Schooners,, chief of the Commission's fishery division, reports that 2,000 fingerling channel catfish and 600 inter- mediate size channels have been placed in Kiowa County State Lake. Lane County State Lake- has been stocked with 3,000 fingerlings and 600 inter- mediate channel catfish. In addition, fathead minnows have been put in both lakes to provide a large population of forage fish for largemouth black bass, which will be in- troduced later. Schoonover said that bass will be stocked late this summer or early fall. Fishing will be prohibited in 'the lakes for two years, Schoonover said. Herbicides - A Necessity Weeds are costly! They com- pete with crops for light, wa- ter and plant nutrients and thereby reduce the yield and quantity of crop and livestock products. The use of herbicides is rapidly becoming a neces- sary part of modern farming. A reduction in production costs and an increase in crop quality is possible through the use of herbicides in controlling weeds. Federal and State Laws and regulations pertaining to the use and application of herbi- cides are frequently changed and revised. Therefore, it is necessary to keep informed on the status of chemical clear- ances. Labels on containers give information on applica- tion restrictions but they may not always reflect the most recent changes in approved uses. ' All agricultural chemicals should be handled with care and caution. READ THE LA- BEL. The information has been carefully developed by the manufacturer and closely regu- lated by Federal and State governments. It is the guide for best results. Most herbicides are not in- jurious to humans, nor to live- stock. However, some herbi- cides are toxic to animals and can cause irritation of the skin. Herbicides' residues can affect plants other than those being directly treated. For ex- ample: Spray drift and volital- Ization may cause unintended damage. Weeds are easier to kill when they are young and in an ac- tive stage of growth, but re- member this is also true of crop plants! The time of spray- ing, the rate and method of application are important to effective weed control. Spray- ing at the wrong time can give poor weed control and-or serious crop injury. Most crops are not absolutely resistant to injury from herbicides, espe- cially if excessive rates are used. It is usually best not to dis- turb soft treated with herbi- cides for at least three weeks after applying the chemicals, except those which are incor- perated into the soil. Care should be taken not to throw untreated soll into the treated row when band treatment is used. If the treated area nemr the plant ,is disturbed the of-J Statewide, ,.the first quarter J J~WELL COUNTY Ri~ORD fectiveness of the chemical lpurchases stand at $16,237,461, I Thursday, .April 27, 1967 layer is often destroyed.
