Qall For a FREE Initial Appointment American Institute of Architects Meager spring precipita- tion that has pared both for- aging and water sources may make deer more elusive this year, the Department of Fish and Game's Region 1 office said, as the north state archery and rifle hunting seasons open. "It is very dry out there," said warden Larry Brucken- stein, whose patrol territory includes much of southern Humboldt County. "There are a fair number of bucks and they appear in good shape, but we didn't get much in the way of spring rains so there is less food and water for them," he added. A repeat of last year's early fall storms could bring deer out of hiding and set the stage for good hunting suc- cess, the DFG said. In con- trast, continued dry condi- tions will make it difficult for hunters to move about quiet- ly and will tend to immobi- lize deer during daytime hours, the agency said. The year's string of deer hunting seasons in Region 1 began July 28, with the open- ing of archery hunting in southwestern Humboldt County's mysterious zone B4, an area comprised largely of private land, but including public land of the so-called Lost Coast's King Range. Archery seasons for the re- mainder of the region's five B zones, four C zones and nine X zones have opening dates that include Aug. 11, Aug. 18 and Aug. 25. Rifle seasons open Aug. 25 in B4, Sept. 15 in Learn how to Feather River College is of- fering a beginning tennis course Tuesdays and Thurs- days from 4-5:36 p.m. at the newly renovated tennis courts at the FRC Quincy campus.

Early archery hunting within zones C1 and C4 and in any of the nine X zones requires a separate archery tag that cannot be used during the general rifle seasons, the DFG said. Fish and Game said hunters gobbled up all avail- able tags for the nine Region 1 X zones, for G1 and for the early X-zone archery hunts A3-All during the DFG's June 13 tag drawings in Sacramento. As of Friday, tags were still available for early archery hunts in zones C1 and C4, for all four C-zone rifle hunts and for archery-rifle hunting in the six "big green" B zones. As usual, hunters in the north state this year will be pursuing only bucks, legally those with a forked antler or better on one side. No antler- less or either-sex deer hunts are scheduled in Region 1, the agency said. Fish and Game said the bag limit is~one buck per tag. Shooting hours are from a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. Hunters who kill a deer must immediately complete and at- tach a portion of the tag to the antler and. at the first op- portunity, get the tag validat- ed by one of several public of- ficials authorized in this college credit. Students must enroll in the class by Friday, Sept. 7. Umdnd slowly in a Colem m Spa QUINCY HOT SPOT 283-2929 year's hunting regulation booklet. DFG Region 1 wardens and biologists said forest and high desert conditions have been extremely dry all year east of the Cascade Range and in the area north of Mt. Shasta and east of the Coast Range. Without the relief of early storms, hunters will find it difficult to walk with- out making noise and deer will find no motivation to move about during the day. For the first time in several years, storms arrived early last fall, helping to boost the statewide buck kill by some 18 percent. The kill jumped 24 percent in the Region 1 B zones, 16 percent in the C zones and 28 percent in the northeastern corner's X zones. Hunters will have to work hard to duplicate last year's northern kill, the Region 1 of- rice said, if for no other rea- son than it takes a couple of years--and two surviving fawns for every one buck bagged--to replace a given season's kill. And, there are other reasons, the DFG said, why odds are against a sec- '92 CHEVROLET 1500 4x4 Extra Cab, Z7 I, 5.7, A J(-, Auto, PW, PDI., "I\V, CC, .",hell More. -"21382 This week only... s13,495 /vkAZATLAN, /V EXICO 8 day, 7"night Golf'Exl rience October 27-November 3 "Beginning Golf Academy" Course #PE 175, 1.5 units Golf Instruction includes: 14 clock hours of PGA instruction (12:1) 4 rounds of 18-ho/e go~fat the Robert- Trent Jones championship course Estrella de/Mar Direct round trip flight from SFO Double occupancy ocean or garden view at Two free days to explore Mazatlan '96 FORD RANGER SIC A/C, PS, PW, PDL, T~, CC. #A30230.

Western B-zone black-tailed deer areas remain stable to improved, but could be even better if natural events such as fire were permitted to open the forest floor to sunlight and, in turn, the nutritious broad-leaf plants deer like to eat. To the east, the long-term trend appears to be even less encouraging. Summer habitats of the central C-zone deer herds, of- ten made up of hybrid black- tails and Rocky Mountain mule deer, have been suffer- ing a steady decline for years, also due to fire sup- pression and development. This year's tag quota for the four-zone area is down from 12,0(.~) to 11,5(X) as a reflection of the problems. While a sudden soci- etal acceptance of fire as a good thing for forests along the Cascade Range and to the west would undoubtedly re- sult in more deer, scientists are not as optimistic about a practical turnaround for the Great Basin habitats of the northeast. 1 t Valley Chapter Come join us September 15,2001 Valley Lodge - Calpine Cocktails 6 pm - Dinner 7 pm boor Prizes Auction Drawings )le $60 Single $35 Greenwing QUINCY SUSANVILLE RUSTY DIAMOND WARREN'S SAW SHOP 507 BELL LANE 100 NORTH FAIRFIELD (530) 283-2226 (530) 257-6232 For Tickets & Information Call 836-4120 345-18" Chainsaw 2.7, 45cc Engine This Season's Best Valuel Get a Carry Case & Chain for $29.'~ with 345-18" Purchase!
