Washington ,Wins Top Hunter Award y p'a, Washington -- The State of Washington has re- ceived international recognition and the top award for its record of hunting safety, it was an- nounced last week. The award was given by the International Association of Game, Fish and Conservation Commissioners at its meeting this month in Memphis, Ten- nessee. Washington's program was judged as best of all similar programs of the 50 states, 12 provinces of Canada and Mex. ico. Chairman of the Awards Committee for the Internation- al group, Harold Glassen of Michigan, said that selection of the top state this year was us- ually simple, as Washington's program was so clearly out. standing. The hunter safety program in the State of Washington has cut the number of fatal hunt. ing accidents in half during the last three years, according to the report furnished the Asso- ciation. /~eceiving the award on be. half of the state, John A. Biggs, director of the Game Depart- ment, credited all citizens of Washington with earning the international honor. Washington's excellent record in juvenile firearm training had much to do with the winning of the award, according to Biggs. This training would not have been possible without the unselfish cooperation of the nearly 3,000 private citizens who have donated their time to serve as instructors. State agencies such as the Game Department, and~ many private groups have stressed safety through literature and billboards reaching all groups of citizens. In addition to giving credit to sportsmen, civic and the many other groups in the state who have taught hunting safety Biggs credited the individual hunter. Washington's radio, televi- sion and newspaper operators have also contributed greatly by Carrying the hunting safety] message. Tffe State Legislature has carefully considered and put into effect many regula- tions which have promoted safe hunting. In the final'analysis, accord- ing to Biggs, it's up to the in- dividual hunter to put safe hunting into effect. That they have done a good job of this iS clear from the award given by the International Associa- tion. O GEMS OF THOUGHT Reason is the most active hu. man faculty. -- Mary Baker Eddy. I see men ordinarily more eager to discover a reason for things than to find out whether the things are so.---Montaigne. Reason is nothing but the analysis of belief.--Franz Schu- Smoking Fires On Hst Matches and smoking cause about one fourth of the Na- tion's fires says the Seattle- King County Safety Council. Why? Well, 400,000,000,000 cig- arettes are smoked each year- about 800,000 every minute! One misplaced cigarette in each 2,000,000 smoked is enough to cause 200,000 fires each year. The best course to follow is to regard each cigarette you light as the one in 2,000,000 which may cause a fire. These Precautions Will Help Stop Smoking Fires 1. Keep plenty of ash trays and use them. 2. Never toss a lighted match or cigarette carelessly away. At home or in your car, use your ash tray. In the woods, make sure smoking materials are cool to the touch before you discard them. Do the same when emptying an ash tray into any container for disposal. 3. Before going out or retir- ing for the night, make a brief inspection of the premises to make sure no cigarette has dropped on a chair, behind a sofa cushion or on a carpet. 4. Never smoke in bed. Scott Paper Lands Open to Hunters Scott Paper Company's wood- lands continue to be open to hunters this year, according to T. R. Sheldon, West Coast Woodlands Manager for the Company. This is consistent with the Company's continu- ing program to cooperate with the public in the year-round use of Scott woodlands wherev- er possible. , In Skagit and Whatcom counties, hunters are welcome on the Scott-Skagit Tree Farm in areas identified as: Day Creek, Finney Cretk, Illabot Creek, Jordan Creek, Jackman Creek, Canyon Lake, Cub Creek. These areas are open through- out the wetk and over week- ends. The Scott area north of Hamilton and at Maple Falls, however, will be open on week- ends only because of logging operations. Also, roads have been closed at several points because of felled timber and unattended equipment in op- erating areas. Scott woodlands open in Sno- homish County are part of the Scott-Stillaguamish Tree Farm. These areas, open throughout the week and over weekends~ are identified as: Jordan Hill, Pig Knuckle Ridge, North Mountain (Darrington), Duffy Creek, Wallace River (Gold, Bar), Studebaker Hill, Deer Creek (Oso). The Canyon Creek and Jim Creek stctions of Scott prop- erty are open over weekends only because of logging opera- tions. Gates here will be open- ed at 6:00 a.m. and closed at 6:00 p.m. Road maps showing Scott woodlands in both counties are available at Camp offices in Hamilton and at Granite Falls. Maps are also available at main gates to the hunting areas and at the Company's mill office in Everett.

The reports do in- dicate, however, that the ex- cellent berry crops in the high country may hold the bear at higher elevations and make hunting for bruin a little tough. er this year than last. Elk hunting prospects are as good or better than last year. During the 1960 season 7,760 of these animals were taken in Washington. A heavy harvest of deer will Cover Your Win& and Doors CRYSTAL CLEAR, SHATTERPROOF not only b~enefit the state's hunters, bur may be necessary in some areas of the state, Lauckhart indicated. "The mild winters have al- lowed this most popular big game animal to become too numerous in some areas of the state," he said. "If the hunters do not adequately harvest the deer, and should a hard winter concentrate them in the low- lands, damage to agricultural crops in some regions of the state could be great." One of the areas of the state where the deer hunting pros- pects are better this year is in the Kittitas - Yakima county area. Biologists point out that deer herds are at the 1955 level and should snow conditions come earlier than normal, the deer kill might be increased by as much as 25 per cent. In many parts of this region deer have been reported this year in marginal areas where they occur only when populations are extra high .... Prospects are for a better than average kill in the Oka- nogan, Chelan, Douglas county area also. In the northwest, around Ski- git county, deer hunting pros- pects are reported the best they have ever been. In the King, Snohomish, Kit- ONLY sap county area all state game protectors have reported see- ing more deer this year, not only in the high country but~ in low areas also. Deer populations are report- ed outstanding in the Pierce, Lewis, Thurston county are~ be understood that lands are subject to closure if dry weath- er produces fire hazards. Also, visitors are urged to use cau- tion with fire and firearms, and to obey signs. Hunters art asked to help keep the Company's record of deer kills by marking tally sheets at the information box at each gate, or by advising gate watchmen.

To Hunters Some of the best deer country in the state will be opened toI the hunting public by Weyer- haeuser's Company when deer season opens Saturday. Carl Garey, manager of Wey- erhaeuser's Skykomish Tree Farm, stated that in accord with company policy every acre of land owned by the company in Snohomish, Skagit and What- cam counties will be open to hunters. Gates on practically all company roads will be open October 14 through the special and in southwest Washington. Peninsula counties report deer populations the highest in years. Excellent hunting is pre- dicted in all counties from Clal- lam south through Pacific. "Considering all species, the 1961 seasons could well offer the best all-round hunting the Washington hunter has ever had," Lauckhart said. gates will have to remain lock- ed because company roads be- hind them are not safe for ve- hicular traffic. To help hunters, Weyer- haeuser has printed maps show- ing company roads, as well as main highways and other pub- lic and private roads in Sno- homish County. Any hunter desiring one of these maps may obtain one free of charge at the Skykomish Tree Farm Office. Located just west of Monroe on U. S. Highway 2, the office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 5:00. Garey cautioned sportsmen hunting during the week that because logging trucks use many of the company roads, drivers will have to use ex- treme caution. "And in some of our thinning operations we have contract loggers using horses", he added. "I hope we can get through the hunting Season without losing any of these animals." Leader--Helen Bergen.
