Greenville advanced in the brackets to take on Hayfork with another victory for the Indians: 51-30. In the final game of the tournament, Greenville lost to Loyalton 66-40. "The team is developing well," said Greenville's coach, Russ Crouch. "We played really strong the first couple of games." Greenville rocketed out on the court in its season open- er against Elk Creek. The In- dians led at the end of the first quarter 17-6. Elk Creek outscored Greenville 11-6 in the second quarter, but was too far behind to catch up. Greenville continued its roll and scored 17 points dur- ing the third quarter. Elk Creek only scored seven. In the final quarter Elk Creek out-shot the Indians 18-17. Walker Meyers led the In- dians with 18 points on only 19 shots. Meyers played strong defensively as well by snatching seven rebounds. Meyers' performance clinched the win for the Indi- ans. Andrew Fairbanks con- tributed 13 points and eight rebounds for Greenville. Tony Rogers reigned over Greenville's defense with 11 rebounds. Rogers also added eight points to the Indians' score. Cooper Kingdon made two three-pointers and a two- pointer for Greenville, and Troy Neer sank two two- pointers and grabbed five re- bounds and one steal. Greenville advanced to the semifinal against the Hay- fork Lumberjacks. Hayfork had beaten Herlong previ- ously in the day. Greenville outscored Hay- fork by only two points in the first quarter, but made its strongest move in the sec- ond qparter, scoring 19 points to Hayfork's five. Greenville dominated the third quarter by adding 18 more points. Greenville was ahead 45-23 going into the final quarter. Hayfork outscored the Indi- ans 7-6 in the fourth quarter, but was too far behind to re- ally make a difference. Jacob Henry was the star of this game. Henry scored 13 points in six shots. Mey- ers continued to be an asset to the team and contributed 10 points. Rogers and Fair- banks chipped in eight points apiece and Neer added seven points. Rogers headed up the Indi- ans' defense with 11 re- bounds. Kingdon assisted six times: With a 2-0 season start, Greenville advanced to the tournament championship against the Loyalton Griz- zlies. The Grizzlies played the same up-tempo style as the Indians. Loyalton proved too much for Greenville. Loyalton held nothing back as the team took an ear- ly 18-9 lead against the Indi- ans. The Grizzlies continued their rampage to lead 30-18 at the half. The third quarter was the most brutal for Greenville, with Loyalton scoring 24 more points to the Indians' six. Greenville looked its best in the fourth quarter, but still lost 66-40. "LoyaIton played a good game," said Crouch. "They executed their offense very well. They had the hot hand and beat us." Meyers was the only true star for the Indians during the game. Meyers carried the team by scoring 24 of the In- dians' 40 points. Meyers made three three-pointers and eight rebounds. Rogers contributed six points. Greenville's Cooper Kingdon carries the ball near Hayfork's basket during the John Holland Classic tournament in the Greenville gym Nov. 30.

Martinez led the Tigers' de- fense with 11 rebounds and one steal. Quincy's games against Lassen and Fallon were stomps, essentially. Hughes plans to use these losses as learning tools to get the Tro- jans on top of their game by the time conference play be- gins. "There were some things that we didn't do well," said Hughes. "So right now we're just focusing on continuing on with our program. We're stressing the things that will make us a winning team; play- ing a good solid defense, being disciplined in our offense and continuing to grow." Brady Rick was selected as the All-Tournament player.for Quincy. Both Quincy's varsity and junior varsity teams were awarded the sportsmanship award for the tournament.

Feathers, fur for flies Question: My friends that hunt big game and wa- terfowl often give me deer hide or duck wings and body feathers, which I use to tie flies for fishing. In the past I have given them flies in return for the hair, fur and feathers. In addition, I have sold flies to a few local sport stores, which may contain materials provided by my hunter friends. Would I be violating Fish and Game laws by trading (bartering) or selling these flies? Granted, these hunters provided materials that make a very small portion of the fly materials used to make flies. However, I grew up among sportsmen in a culture that encouraged the sharing of the harvest (tak- en by hunting or fishing) and an ethic of utilizing the harvest to the fullest extent (meat, fur, hair and feath- ers). Please let me know. --Terry T. Davis Answer: Yes and no If the flies you tie are made only with the deer hair your friends have given you, then you may sell them (Fish and Game Code, sec- tion 4303). Any of the flies you tie that contain bird feathers from birds lawfully taken in California may not be sold as this would be a vi- olation of multiple sections of the Fish and Game Code (including sections 3039 and 3504). The law does provide some exceptions for mam- mals that are taken under a trapping license or that are raised under a domesticated game breeding license. Buying and selling parts of bird and mammal species that do not exist in the wild in California are not re- stricted under this law. For a list of the species that do exist in the wild in Califor- nia, go to e/genplantsanimals.html. Baited, unbaited crab traps Question: If I go out alone and I have I0 hoop nets on my boat, but I only have five baited nets, am I OK or do I need to remove the un- baited nets to comply? Anon ymous Answer: No more than five hoop nets may be pos- sessed by a person when taking spiny lobster or'crab. However, if there are two or more people on your boat, you may have up to, but not exceed, a total of 10 hoop nets on board when taking spiny lobster or crab (Cali- fornia Code of Regulations Title 14, sections 29.80(b)(1)(A) or (b)(1)(B)). These restrictions apply whether or not the nets are baited. Methods of take Question: In the big game regulations it states that shotguns capable of holding not more than three shells firing single slugs may be used for the taking of deer, Heavy Equipment & Truck Repair Concrete Aggregates Trucking Office (530) 283-2736 Cell (530) 616-0595 bear and wild pigs. In areas where the discharge of ri- fles or shotguns with slugs is prohibited by county or- dinance, shotguns capable of holding not more than three shells firing size 0 or O0 buckshot may be used for the taking of deer only. Does that mean buckshot may be used for deer any- where hunting is legal? Slugh are not prohibited in my county, but I want to confirm buckshot is legal al- so. --Mike D. Answer: No; 0 and 00 buckshot are legal to use for deer onlyin areas where the discharge of rifles or shot- guns with slugs is prohibit- ed by county ordinance. Buckshot is not legal to use for taking big game other- wise. Selling bird mounts Question: Is it legal to sell or purchase Eurasian starling, English house sparrow or feral pigeon taxidermy mounts in Cali- fornia? I'm assuming it's le- gal since they are not pro- tected by the federal Migra- tory Bird Treaty Act and they are not native to the state. However, they do fall under the "found in the wild" terminology used here: ornia/fish/3039.html (sec- tion "a"). Since farm-raised game bird mounts are legal to sell ( ornia/fish/3039.html (sec- tion "d")), are invaders like starlings, pigeons and spar- rows OK as well? --Terry T. Answer: No, these birds may not be purchased or sold in California (Fish and Game Code, sections 3039 & 3801 - 8801.6). Each of these species are found in the wild in California and the prohibition in Fish and Game Code section 3039 against selling applies, even though there is no closed season and they may be tak- en without the person being required to have a hunting license.
