The Trojans squeezed out two final points before Modoc won, 15-4. "They froze again," said Hyink of game five. "It was a big game." Hyink added that his team has learned from the experi- ence and will be better next year because of it. Since nine of the 10 players on the team are juniors, this was their first playoff contest. Quincy's senior, Annie Daun, was named the "Most Valuable Player" in the Sacramento Valley League. Dana Pearson, Katie Mansen, Shani Quiring and Erika Trueblood each earned all- league selections, and Michelle Rich received an honorable mention. Quincy struggled earlier in the year, but then went unde- feated through the regular season and took first place in the Sacramento Valley League. "We came a long way this season," said Hyink.

Following is a summary of seasons, hours, limits and other information helpful for hunt- ing pheasant, turkey and dove. For complete rules, consult the Resident and Migratory Up- land Game Birds regulation booklet, avail- able on the DFG web site, at DFG offices and hunting license vendors. l hmmmt Season: Nov. 10 through Dec. 9. Shooting hours: S a.m. until sunset. Limit: Male (rooster) pheasants only Opening weekend: Two per day, four in possession Remaining season: Three per day, six in possession Special requirements/consideratins: While transporting pheasants from the field to home, hunters must preserve birds in such a way that the species and sex .readily, iden tifiable leaving the heaa or a ttmy mamereu wing intact, for example. Population status: Summer brood count data indicate that pheasant population trends are relatively stable in most of the Sacramen- to and San Joaquin valleys. Adequate rainfall provided abundant cover and improved sum- mer chick survival. Where to hunt: The largest populations of pheasant can be found in the Sacramento and upper San Joaquin valleys and in the Tule Lake These colorful birds inhabit agri- cultural fields where rice and grain are grown and irrigation water is available. Many state wildlife areas and national wildlife refuges provide good pheasant hunt- ing opportunities. The DFG provides some excellent pheasant hunting opportunities on public land, partic- ularly during the first part of the season. For example, the Grizzly Island Wildlife Area al- lows pheasant hunting every day during the first 12 days of the season; the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area allows pheasant hunting every day during the first nine days of the season. On non-waterfowl shoot days, quotas are filled for these hunts on a first-come, first- served basis. The Delevan and Sacramento National Wildlife Refuges allow pheasant hunting on Monday, Nov. 12. To participate in hunts at these refuges, you must be select- ed through a random drawing. To enter the drawing, come to the refuge and apply be- tween 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11. The drawing will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday. These are just a couple of examples; a com- plete list of pheasant hunting opportunities on.state and federal areas can be found in Wing Beat News and the regulation booklet Hunting and Other Public Uses on State and Federal Areas. Turkey Season: Nov. I0- through Nov. 25, except San Diego County, which is closed to fall hunting. Shooting hours: One-half hour before sun- rise, to sunset Limit: Either sex may be taken; one bird per season Special requirements or considerations: Wild turkeys have keen eyesight and hearing. They detect color, detail and slight movement over considerable distances. Serious turkey hunters know the value of camouflage and dress accordingly. The DFG cautions turkey hunters to plainly identify any target before shooting. Population status: Prospects for this year's fall wild turkey hunting are very favor- able. An abundance of spring rainfall over the past several years has allowed the habitat to flourish. Good nesting, brood rearing, es- cape and loafing cover have provided optimal conditions for wild turkey populations throughout California. Where to hunt: The state's largest concert. trations of wild turkeys are found in the foothills and along the coast, including Butte, Calaveras, El Dorado, Mendocino, Nevada, San Luis Obispo, Shasta, Tehama and Yuba Opener, page
