Sites Under Survey
In line with the game commis
sion's program for the scientific dis
tribution of Chinese pheasants that
will be raised at its four game farms
during 1940, surveys of the available
pheasant area are already under
way. Planting sites will be chosen
in advance of liberation, the selec
tion being based upon suitable food,
cover and water conditions, the ex
isting bird population and stress of
hunting. In conjunction with thia
a check is also being made insofar
as possible of the results of plant
ings made the past season.
This program, initiated last year
in the western part of Oregon under
the direction of John McKean, has
been extended to eastern Oregon
where it will be handled by Don
Moore. Both men are graduates of
the fish and game management
course at the state college and have
had, in addition, practical exper
ience in bird liberation work.
Sportsmen, realizing the advantage
of releasing birds on a scientific ba
sis, have manifested a keen interest
and spirit of cooperation.
