How absurd. I've been +hunting since I was 14 years old and never yet have seen toe. much game. What is this state coming to when farmers can't afford a little extra seed to feed our wildlife and preserve our heritage and hunting in Idaho? This brings me to my first question. Is is possible to obtain a list from Fish & Game of the farmers who think they have "too many pheasants"? Then this fall my Brittany and I could help thin the flock a little and put some meat in the freezer. My second question: How does one go about getting involved with decisions of the Fish & Game Department and helping out with conservation programs? I feel that as a native Idahoan for 30 years, the time has come to get involved with preserving and maintaimng our hunting and fishing privileges that we have and that I have enjoyed ever s I can remember.--D.W., Nampa A: Conservation officers investigate all pheasant depredation complaints and they enter activities on a daily log. When firecrackers, Zon guns or other devices are given to landowners, depredation reports are entered on the log so the Department of Fish & Game can account for costs. Records, therefore, are quite complete. Many farmers apparently do minimize pheasant depredation, or the department does not hear from them. Fair ribbons.... Jared Hill (Guinea Pig) Red K.C.

Personally. I would like to see some research and some experimental projects on pheasant depredation control, Funds from a pheasant stamp if such a proposal were to become law -- could be used very ap- propriately for such an activity I believe there are solutions to these problems and that pheasant depredation can be minimized and still maintain a viable pheasant population.

Plan, that three of the five years reflected a positive cash flow. "Below-cost sales, where the cost to offer the sale exceeded the income received from the sale price, occurred in 1981 and 1982. The amount was a negative 1.1 million dollars in 1981 and 728,000 dollars in lg82. Positive sold sales occurred in 1979, at a plus 2.3 million dollars, in 1980, a plus 2.1 million dollars, and in 1983, a plus 118,000 dollars. Gary Allen, Forest Timber "Some timber sales are specifically designed to enhance sustained-yield management, wildlife values, water shed. or recreation. Such 3ales are intended to produce long-term benefit and may produce immediate monetary rurns which are sometimes bel, cost." To reduce the number of sales tot which the direct receipts do not recover immediate costs, the Forest is examining changes.

Craig and Edwards request moratorium on Reservoir The Bureau of Reclamation has been requested to place an immediate moratorium on any interbasin transfer or exchange of water outside the Payette River drainage, specifically Cascade Reservoir, by First District Congressman Larry Craig and Idaho State Representative Lydia Justice Edwards. Craig and Edwards met with the Assistant Interior Secretary for Water and Science, Robert Broadhent, in Washington yesterday to discuss the existing and future demands on the Cascade water supply. However, Craig said the moratorium of the sale of Cascade Reservoir water would not affect the existing ap- propriated water rights such as irrigation within the Payette River Basin. p+m. through July 31 for road con- struction. Trails are opening and some are being worked now'. Fishing is good in the high mountain lakes. Goose Lake is high, the others are normal. Fire conditions are moderate.

"This moratorium will not hamper or prevent the flow of water for those, currently committed purposes. It is recognized, however, that increased pressure on the reservoir's ater could cau some great difficulties in the near future. We are simply asking the Bureau to halt all future sal outside the Payette River Basin until a study on the changing needs and accompanymg water and land resource problems is completed." The Bureau of Reclamation expects the study to be finished in early 1985. Craig said it would be unwise for the Bureau to sell itself short on the x.ater resource, only to find out the reservoir cannot meet the supply demand at a later date. "It is our hope the Bureau will peer into the future before it finds out it cannot keep or meet future commitments, which would jeopardize the mam priorities of the reservoir," stud Cra g I!1111111111111111111111111111111 You Con Win $5.001 Tucked away in one of the ads in t:+; week's Rectrd, the name of some lucky person s printed.
