Brooks home Mrs. Herring is Mr. Brook's sister. Oregon deer hunters, and un- doubtedly, many have already headed for the mountains toes- camp at favorite hunting areas. They will be ready for the general buck deer season scheduled to open Oct. 3. By Saturday morning the mass in- vasion of forests and range- lands will be compldte, and without a doubt most of Oregon's 260,000 deer hunters will be there when the season begins at dawn on that day. The quest for deer will con- tinue through Oct. 25, with hunt- ers holding unit permits eligible to hunt deer of either sex from Oct. 17 through the remainder of the season. We know the buck deer will be ready for the big invasion-- for some reason they always are. And after a long summer of lush living these cagey old bucks will be in fine shape for the hunter. But how about the hunter7 Are you prepared to take ad- vantage of your opportunity if it should suddenly arise. It may be the only chance of the season but ff your equipment doesn't hold up you've spent your day or days afield for n at hen g. It may be a IRtle too late to check over most equipment, but your rifle tops the list and you still have time to give it the once-over. There's no doubt that a man can endure rain if the tent leaks, eat cold beans if the camp stove fails to fire, and even huddle around a campfire all night if he happens to forget the sleeping bag on the back porch. A hunter can tramp the brush- lands all day in wet britches, somehow skin a deer with a dull knife, and come home from the hunt dirty, dog-tired and footsore. But the one thing that is hard to take is to find that his rifle, the key piece of equlp- sent, doesn't shoot straight to the mark when he lines his sights on the target. Our advice is to check your rifle over carefully for any. malfunction, then get out on the range for the next couple of days for a little target practice. A couple of days on the range, more is even better, is nothing more :ban insurance of a solid hit when the fleeting moment arrives. It sharpens the eye and teaches you all over again to squeeze the trigger instead of your aim is true and sights lined correctly, you will know your bullet will hit exactly where you want it. And how do the prospects ap- pear for the 1964 season7 Good to excellent according to the game commission. Deer are there with populations on a par with last year in most areas, and up a little in others. On the west side, hunters will find blacktail deer plentiful, with the coast range probably the best bet. In this area we predict best results from the Willamette side of the mountains. The Tillamook and Trask units are expected good, along with the Polk, Alsea and Siuslaw. The Cascades are expected good, but again, best results are expected from the fringe areas adjacent tothe Wlllamette Valley. Bunters will do well to look into the spur ridges extending out into agricultural areas as cagey blacktails like to live around these brushy ridges where they have ready access to open fields and meadows below. Almost anywhere in the south Willamette should yield its share of deer, with the hot spots the tree farms around Eugene, Springfield and Cot- rage Grove. The slopes ad- Jacent to Fern Ridge through to Mary's Peak are excellent choices. East of the mountains, the Klamath country should again yield top numbers of deer, both mule and blacktail. Popula- tions are reported up slightly and there are plenty of big bucks left over from last year as well as a good crop of young bucks. Midcentral Oregon should again produce well with the better locales in the Ochocos, Maury Mountains, and the Griz- zly country. The Deschutes should be a good bet, especially to those hunters who hunt the back country. As in the past, hunting pressure will be high in this popular country which will hold individual hunter success below what is normally exper- ienced in most other areas of the state. The Sled Springs, Ches- nimnus and Imnaha units should be tops in northeastern Oregon, Although Wallowa County throughout will produce excel- lent results, Imlllltlllllllll IIl II Illlill Ill IIUlIIIIIIi I l I Ill I nil Bill llllll Bill I Ill lilt I I llilllll Illl II II III Illlll l||ll I ll|l nlllUl|llllll|ll I|| I l III Illll Bill Ill Illlllllllill III I- m m i i i m i me m i in m i ." in E Z: :, !: SEPT.

Hunters will also find ex- cellent populations of mulles in the UktRh country, Heppner and Wheeler, as well as the Northslda, Murderers Creek and Sllvies units. Populations here are either on a par or up from last year. In the southeast, we llke the Ma.lheur area as a top choice for bucks, along wRhthe Owyhee and Steens. Hunters shouldn't overlook the WhRehorse area as a top choice, in addRion to wlde-open hunting country to tramp in without a lot of other hunters. Fawn production in most sections of the southeast is reported up after several years of low production. These are but a few of the better hunting areas the game commission recommends. There are many others to choose from Just as good if not better. The hunting Rseif is up to the hunter. His suc- cess will depend on just how well he knows the country and how well he knows the habRs of deer. Hunters heading for eastern Oregon might toss a shotgun in among the gear. Oct. 3 also is the opening of the chukar and Hungarian partridge season east of the Cascades. The season is scheduled to extend through the year to Jane , 1965. Bag limit for chukars and Huns is set for 8 daily, 16 In possession. Hold up on pheasants and quail, though, as the season on these game birds remains closed until Oct. 17, two weeks later. Check the regulations. These are available at all license agencies. INTRODUCED LAST week at the PTO session in Sheridan were room mothers for the com- ing year.
