With frost on low grounds and a couple of inches of snow on the higher mountains, and the wind blowing steady all day from the north, fishing last Saturday, the first day of trout season, was just only tolerable like. Notwithstanding all such untoward circumstances, the streams were crowded with people and many an early bird fisherman got trout on worms and minnows. Most of the fly fishermen were just out of luck.
Speaking of catching trout, an old timer was in to tell me that fish never did do any good abiting when the barometer was going down.
Albert Trainer, of Anthonys Creek, reports that a bear killed a ewe and six lambs for O. W. Ryder, on Meadow Creek, last week.
J. O. Kellison was up from Jacox Monday, for to get in touch with the owner of some bear dogs. He was directed to Austin and Oscar Sharp. An immense bear killed eight head of sheep last week for Henry Beard on the Knobs grazing farm.
With frosts and freezes every night and morning, the call of the whippoorwill was heard last Saturday night. This is a corn planting sign. On Tuesday morning the catbirds made their presence known with their sweet singing.
VARMINT KILLING CONTEST
Another sign that peace is here again, the Pocahontas County Rod and Gun Club is sponsoring another varmint killing contest in Pocahontas County. During the war years, this annual event was just another thing to be put aside. The super abundance of small predators and the scarcity of small game may be accounted for in a large measure by no varmint killing for several years.
