Page 6 April 7, 2011 North Dakota deer hunters took approximately 67,000 deer during the 2010 deer gun hunting season. Bill Jensen, big game biologist for the state Game and Fish Department, said overall hunter success was 64 percent. Game and Fish made available 116.775 deer gun licenses in 2010. with more than 99 percent issued to hunters. Hunter success for- antlered white-tailed deer was 68 percent. and antledess whitetail was 63 per- cent Mule deer buck success was 68 percent, while mule deer doe hunters had a success rate of 70 per- cent Hunters with any-antlered or any-antlerless licenses almost exclusively harvest white-tailed deer. These buck and doe hunters each had a success rate of 64 per- cent. Hunters drawing a muzzleloader license had a success rate of 46 per- cent, while young hunters, during the youth season had a success rate of 55 percent. Jensen said significant snow cover this past winter enabled the Game and Fish Department to com- plete aerial deer surveys in all mon- itorino_ blocks and long-term study areas. The surveys took longer to complete than usual - all of Januar3 and February due to poor weather conditions. "Deer numbers in many parts of the state continue on a downward trend following three consecutive difficult winters." Jensen said. "Coupled with an aggressive har- vest approach on antlerless deer in units with deer numbers above man- agement goals, this has resulted in a reduction in the deer population in many, but not all, units." Aerial observations in units south and west of the Missouri River indi- cate white-tailed deer numbers remain stable to increasing, and mule deer numbers are stable. Large monitoring blocks in the northwest and north central portions of the state (3A1. 3A4, 2K1 and 2K2J have been stable to declining over the last three years, while the Cando area (2E) has shown declin- ing deer numbers. The Wing-Tuttle (2Jl and 2J2) and Dawson (2I) areas show stable to decreasing deer numbers over the last three years. Survey areas in the Red River Valley show decreasing to stable deer numbers in unit 2A. while units 2B. 2C and 2D show a stable to slightly increasing deer population.

"No fees are collected by NDDA staff in the field." Goehring said. "'Fees for registra- tions, licenses and other services are billed through the department's office in Bismarck and mailed directly to the producer or busi- ness." "No fees are collected by NDDA staff in the field. Fees for registratio, s, licenses and other services are billed through the department's office in Bismarck and mailed directly to the producer or business." Goehring said the Kansas Department of Agriculture has recently received reports of a per- son impersonating a department employee and accepting a check II Baker Hughes says it has suc- cessfully installed a 40-stage open hole completion system in the Williston Basin for Whiting Petroleum Corporation. This marks the most number of stages ever per- formed in a single lateral ffrac sleeve/packer completion system, according to Baker Hughes. The Baker Hughes system was deployed in Whiting Petroleum's Smith 14 29XH horizontal oil well. "Our ongoing collaborative rela- tionship with Baker Hughes couples Baker Hughes' industry leading tool in annual mule deer survey in April after the snow melts. The department is in the process of determining recommendations for licenses in the 2011 deer procla- mation. These recommendations will be discussed with the public at the upcoming Game and Fish advi- sory board meetings, scheduled for the week of April 18. The proclamation will be sent to the governor's office for approval in late April. In addition to harvest rates and aerial surveys, the department mon- itors a number of other population indices to determine license num- bers, including deer-vehicle colli- sion reports, depredation reports. hunter observations, input at advi- sory board meetings, and comments from the public, landowners and depaJtment field staff. Goehring said producers or businesses should not pay money to anyone claiming to represent an NDDA inspector and attempting to collect fees. "You should report the incident immediately to local law enforcement and call NDDA at (800) 242-7535," he said. il ill Hello, In our business, we travel quite a bit. We deliver equipment in the oil field. It helps support our cow, farming, whiskey, and pinochle habits. In the course of these trav- els. we get a real glimpse of America. From the Canadian line to South and West Texas. We have seen Killdeer go from a sleepy little cow town to a hub of truck activity 24 hours a day. Years ago, we fought a hard fight to keep the ~.state from building a truck route around the West side of Watford on Highway 85. We did not want to divert the business away from Watford's main street. Now, as I go through Watford, I wonder about my judgment. Driving from Williston to Dickinson in the winter can be a challenge If it is icy, you will probably see a half dozen vehicles in the ditch: The Stanley area is maybe worse. Traveling through Newtown is one long convoy of tanker trucks. I just got home from another Texas trip. Only one traffic fine. so I would label it as a success. The trip to Texas is long, but usually pretty enjoyable.

Now as you cross Kansas and Oklahoma. I guess you are in the Bible belt. The radio stations are pretty much evangelist preachers. There are more churches than bars along the road. I guess that is alright, but don't leave anything lying in your pickup if you stop to- eat or spend the night there. I think some of these people are material- istic. There are many billboards advertising one church or another. I grew up in a small town. Catholics and Lutherans. And I guess maybe a smattering of Baptists.

And I think honestly, I was the only gentleman in there! could tell was that as a Catholic, could go to confession. A way out. Anyway, as you travel through the Bible belt you see an occasion- al sign toting a "Gentleman's Club". Now, although you may disagree with me. I consider myself a gentleman. I open the door for ladies. If I burp at the table. I excuse myself. If I'm real- ly dressing up, I clip my nose and ear hair! Paints an awful picture doesn't it. But. as I tired of driving, I thought a bit of gentlemanly con- versation would be good for my soul. I tell you, it cost several dol- lars to get into a "Gentleman's Club". And I think honestly, I .was the only gentleman in there! It turned out there were young ladies dancing in there. And...Well .... They weren't doing a waltz or a polka. And I really doubt if they could even do the chicken dance! It was disgusting! I gave them a few dollars so they could afford more clothes. Then. as I was nearing Houston. I saw a billboard that I thought was rather unique advertising. Evidently, it is illegal to advertise nude or exotic dancers. Now don't get upset, I didn't stop! I am an old man. But this sign brought a smile to my gentlemanly face. The sign advertised "Fabric Free Dancers!" You have to admire originality. Later.
