Hunters bag 62 bears in state Hunters killed 62 bears during the 1975 season, reports Dan E. Cantner, wildlife resources chief. Three bears were bagged during bow season and the remainder were taken during the split firearms season. The 1975 total was the third- largest in seven years. The two best years during that period were 1968 (77 kills} and 1971 {64 kills). The leading counties in 1975 were: Greenbrier, 21; Pocahontas, 14; Randolph. 13; Pendieton, nine, and Webster, three. The second portion of the split season was held later this year to allow more time for females to begin hibernating. Cantner said, "'Last year the number of males and females killed was about equal. This year, however, 15 males were taken in the second part of the season and only six females. .. .. LB LB *'" LB [B LB /J :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: lohn W.

BY ANGELA AND FORD BOTHWELL A majority of campers use sleeping bags but unfor- tunately, those who know how to buy them properly are in the minority. With many inferior bags on the market, which one do you choose? Here are some things you. should know: Types of bags: There are three basic types -- rec- tangular, with full-length zippers: mummy bags, which fit snugly; and tapered bags, which are slightly roomier than mummy models. While rectangular bags offer more room, mummy bags heat up quicker and require less in- sulation. For example, four pounds of insulation in a rec- tangular bag may not be as warm as three pounds in a mummy bag. Insulation: This is the most important, and most con- fusing, factor to consider when buying a bag. The insula- tion in a bag doesn't provide heat; it traps dead air to pre- vent body heat from escaping while still filtering out perspiration. How much insulation you need depends on your body's metabolism, i.e., its ability to produce heat. Bags filled with lightweight goose or duck down are the most expensive, but they have excellent loft, which means they trap air best and offer the greatest warmth. Acrylics and polyesters are used as insulation in cheaper bags, while Dacron Fiherfill II is the best of the synthetic insulators. The latter provides almost as much insulation and lightweightness as down, is cheaper and dries quicker when wet. Some quality bags use an inner layer of down and an out- side layer of synthetic insulation. Above all, never buy a bag filled with discarded cuttings of insulating fibers, which bunch together and give the bag cold spots. Outer shell: Any quality bag covered with cotton duck, poplin, balloon cloth or ripstop nylon will be water- repellent, yet breathe out perspiration. Avoid bags adver- tised as "waterproof." They trap perspiration, besides cracking. Don't pay extra for staff bags for sleeping bag storage. Plastic trash bags can do the job just as well. Store bags rolled loosely. More on how to buy sleeping bags in a future column. When you're off camping, is your house safe from burglars?
