4 The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder November 27, 1975 Judging by the bowhunter harvest of deer to date, Gilmer Countians are headed for a record hunting season this year. The gun season for deer opened Monday and runs until December 6. The bow season opened" October 11 and closes December 31. Hunters can harvest only bucks in Gilmer County. A survey of all but one checking station in the county on Thursday revealed a bow deer kill of 36. Only 20 bow kills were reported for the entire season last year, and only 11 the year before when a record number of deer were taken by gun and bow. Bowhunting is gaining in popu- larity and this undoubtedly accounts for this year's higber kill, but more available deer is definitely a factor also. Amazingly. 23 of the bow kills so far this season were bucks. "We've checked more bow-killed deer so far this year than we have ever before in an entire season," Ersel Davidson, proprietor of Pine Manor Grocery in GtenviIle reported. All six deer brought to him were bucks, the biggest being a 6-point trophy shot by young Curtis Hardman of Kanawha Drive. Bow- hunters can take does as well as bucks. The biggest rack checked in at "They were all young bucks." Daivdson said. "'and fatter than they usually are." Page Ware also reported checking in more bow kills than usual at his Cox's Mill store, and five of the eight checked were bucks. All but one deer, a buck taken by Chester Bailey of Cox's Mill, were harvested by out-of-the- county bewhunters. At Cole's Grocery in Conings, eight bow kills were checked in and five of those were bucks. One area hunter checking in a doe was Jay Radcliff of Troy. Tom Moore of Baldwin brought a 5-point buck he took by bow into Butcher's Store at Cox's Mill, and Quinton Cool of Upper Horn Creek checked in a doe at the same station. One other deer checked in there was a Ri~chie County kill. At Linn. Kline Somerville's Store reported four bow kills, two of them bucks, one taken by Jack Bennett of Troy and the other by Dale Frashure of Lirm. James Exxon at Lockney. where only one or two bow kills generally are checked in each season, seven have been brought in to'date. Five were bucks. Successful bowhunters in- cluded Robert Goodrich, Jerry James and Bernard Kuhl, all of Normantown Pine Manor Grocery was an 8-pointer :~. and Larry Sprouse of Letter Gap, They taken by Ed Williams.

We were unable to contact Sears Exxon at Stumptown for a report. Reports of deer sightings around the county have been numerous and frequent in recent weeks with herds of up to 30 an~ more being reported from several locations. Road kills (deer hit by vehicles) are up considerably, according to Conservation Officer Steve Davis, and is an indicator of an unusualy large number of deer. "We're also receiving reports of crops being damaged by deer," Davis said. Illegal deer kills also reportedly are higher than usual. Unless some unexpected poor weather keeps hunters out of the woods and farm fields this week, a new record deer harvest appears in the offing. Colder winter weather was expected to move into the area from the Midwest as this was written. The last record season here was in 1973 when the total deer kill reached 547. In 1974, according to the "West Virginia Big Game Bulletin," 488 deer were taken gun and bow. A record number of hunters also are expected this year and are, for their own safety, urged to wear blaze orange when they go afield. 6CHS Athletic Boosters he/d squad night Saturday, November 29, the Gilmer County Athletic Boosters are having a "Meet Your Squad Night" at Troy Girls' Basketball Team has good season lOp Troy girls' basketbed] team, L-R, front row: Nettie King, Susie Crouch, Connie Davidson, Debble and Kelly Davis; second row: Connie Townsend, manager, Kathy White, Barbara Rif]le, Mart~ Diane Somerville, Myra Chico, and Coach Karen Adams.
