At a special meeting directly fob
lowing a public hearing October 16,
the Oregon game commission voted
to eliminate the hunter’s choice deer
season that had been scheduled for
October 21st and 22nd.
The commission also voted to ex-
i tend the regular deer season for bucks
with forked horns or better, thru
I October 22nd. The extension of the
general season, however, does not
apply in the area in Lake and Kla
math counties where the special sea
son on the Interstate deer herd is
being held on October 18 and 19.
Hunters Draw Blank
But Have Fun
Lyons — With the hunting season
drawing to a close, very few have
been successful in getting their deer.

while others have found it more diffi
cult, with their trip into the moun
tain a pleasant and anxious journey,
while homeward bound doesn’t always
prove that way. At least that is the
way it proved for four sturdy hunt
ers, Merrill Brassfield, Earl Allen,
Bob Brassfield and Perry Clipfell,
who left for Big Lake with everything
a hunter needs including a pickup
and a horse.
