It may be from a pair of snowshoes that the game men may watch and count, or an airplane under milder weather conditions,butwhat ever the method of transportation, it is a dawn to dark show which began at the close of the elk season and will extend into late April of the following spring. Work will continue through tim summer months terminating with the deer and elk hunts of next fall. As one game biologist put it, "During the deer and elk seasons, we get a little breather, but as soon as they are over we set out on a long cold season of work preparing for next year's hunts. And the most critical and im- portant period of this preparation is during the frigid winter months, in the snow and wind and storm." Information gathered on the winter ranges will determine what's in store for big game hunters during next fall's hunting seasons. It is here that game biologists seek out the ani- mals, watch them as they go through the win- ter, study food supplies, keep a critical eye on animal condition, record mortality, sex and age and the number of animals observed on each range. Cold, snow, mud, wind or rain do not stop the surveys, for game agents must travel in all kinds of weather if the status of Oregon's big game is to be determined. The first phase of this annual inventory is herd composition to determine the ratio of males, females and youngsters in each herd. This work receives top priority beginning in late fall until midwinter on all ranges. Such studies give an accurate picture of the fawnor calf production, and the number of buck deer or bull elk available for breeding and huntingpur- poses. Year after year, most of the bucks killed during the hunting seasons consist of forked horns or yearling bucks. If the surveys indi- cate a good fawn crop hunters can expect a good buck crop next year. If the fawn crop is down on any given range, hunters can expect a like decline in the buck crop available. Herd composition must be completed before buck deer or bull elk lose their antlers. By mid-January herd composition is no longer feasible on deer as bucks are rapidly shedding their antlers. Game biologists have a little more leeway on elk as these majestic game animals retain their antlers for a longer per- iod of time. With some it is as late as mid- March or early April before the massivebeams are shed and new growth begins.
