the disease as a 30- to 50-year epizootic.Due to the uncertain ramificationsthat CWD may have on thestate’s white-tailed deer resource,WVDNR implemented appropriateactions as described in its CWD IncidentResponse Plan. Part of thisplan includes prohibiting huntersfrom bringing in whole animals andcertain tissues from areas known tohave positive cases of CWD.While there are many scientificuncertainties regarding the basicbiology and ecology of CWD thatmay hinder development of efficientstrategies for combating thisdisease in free-ranging deer, theactions outlined in this plan are designedto accomplish the followinggoals:Determine the prevalence and thedistribution of CWD through enhancedsurveillance efforts.Communicate and coordinatewith the public and other appropriateagencies on issues relating toCWD and the steps being taken torespond to this disease.Initiate appropriate managementactions necessary to control thespread of this disease, prevent furtherintroductions of the disease,and possibly eliminate the diseasefrom the state.Joe Jezioro got a big bow elk.

Gun Safety TipsThere are six basic gun safetyrules for gun owners to understandand practice at all times:Treat all guns as if they are loaded.Always assume that a gun is loadedeven if you think it is unloaded. Everytime a gun is handled for anyreason, check to see that it is unloaded.If you are unable to check agun to see if it is unloaded, leave italone and seek help from someonemore knowledgeable about guns.Keep the gun pointed in the safestpossible direction. Always beaware of where a gun is pointing.A “safe direction” is one where anaccidental discharge of the gun willnot cause injury or damage. Onlypoint a gun at an object you intendto shoot. Never point a gun towardyourself or another person.Keep your finger off the triggeruntil you are ready to shoot. Alwayskeep your finger off the trigger andoutside the trigger guard until youare ready to shoot. Even though itmay be comfortable to rest yourfinger on the trigger, it also is unsafe.If you are moving aroundwith your finger on the trigger andstumble or fall, you could inadvertentlypull the trigger. Sudden loudnoises or movements can result inan accidental discharge becausethere is a natural tendency to tightenthe muscles when startled.

If you are indoubt, DON’T SHOOT! Neverfire at a target that is only a movement,color, sound or unidentifiableshape. Be aware of all the peoplearound you before you shoot.Know how to properly operateyour gun. It is important to becomethoroughly familiar with your gun.You should know its mechanicalcharacteristics including how toproperly load, unload and clear amalfunction from your gun. Obviously,not all guns are mechanicallythe same. Never assume that whatapplies to one make or model isexactly applicable to another. Youshould direct questions regardingthe operation of your gun to yourfirearms dealer, or contact the manufacturerdirectly.Store your gun safely and securelyto prevent unauthorized use. Gunsand ammunition should be storedseparately. When the gun is not inyour hands, you must still think ofsafety. Use a trigger lock or cablelock, so it cannot be fired. Storeit unloaded in a locked container,SEARSEXXONOver 47 YearsIn BusinessDOUBLE “DD” RANCHORIGINAL OWNERS HAVE RETURNED“A Hunting Preserve Unlike All Others”(740) 596-9013 FAXsuch as a California-approved lockbox or a gun safe. Store your gunin a different location than the ammunition.For maximum safety youshould use both a locking deviceand a storage container.topADDITIONAL SAFETY POINTSThe six basic safety rules are thefoundational rules for gun safety.However, there are additional safetypoints that much not be overlooked.Never handle a gun when you arein an emotional state such as angeror depression. Your judgment maybe impaired.Never shoot a gun in celebration(the Fourth of July or New Year’sEve, for example). Not only is thisunsafe, but it is generally illegal. Abullet fired into the air will returnto the ground with enough speed tocause injury or death.Do not shoot at water, flat or hardsurfaces. The bullet can ricochetand hit someone or something otherthan the target.STUMPTOWN, WVUS HIGHWAY 33GAME CHECKINGHUNTING/FISHING LICENSEGas - Tires - Groceries - HardwareNov. 2010 ~ Page 15(740) 596-4711• Wild Russian Hogs• Exotic Rams and Goats• Fallow Deer, Sika Deer, Red Stag & Elk• African & Asian SpeciesPrices include animal, guide & caping.Lodging, meals and meat processing available.58501 US Rt 50, McArthur, OH 45651e-mail Dannie@DDRanch.comWeb Site www.DDRanch.comHand your gun to someone onlycontinue to the next pageMatt Whitt went to South Carolinato get this 12 1/2 ‘ - 800 pound alligator.Photo courtesy of CardainalPawnbrokers in Beckley.ElkinsMotorLodgeToll Free877-636-1863(304)636-1400Gracious Dining inTHE 1863 TAVERNHarrison Ave.ELKINS, WV

A child’sthumb has twice the strength ofthe other fingers. When a toddler’sthumb “pushes” against a trigger,invariably the barrel of the gunis pointing directly at the child’sface. NEVER leave a firearm lyingaround the house.Child safety precautions still applyeven if you have no childrenor if your children have grown toadulthood and left home. A nephew,niece, neighbor’s child or a grandchildmay come to visit. Practicegun safety at all times.To prevent injury or death causedby improper storage of guns in ahome where children are likelyto be present, you should store allguns unloaded, lock them with afirearms safety device and storethem in a locked container.

This willremove the mystery and reduce thenatural curiosity. Also, it is importantto remember to talk to childrenin a manner they can relate to andunderstand.

EPA Turns Down BanThe U.S. Environmental ProtectionAgency (EPA) has denied thepetition calling for a ban on themanufacture, use and processing oflead used in fishing gear.In a letter to the petitioners, a consortiumof environmental groups,the EPA indicated that the groupsweren’t convincing in their contentionthat the requested rule isnecessary to protect against an unreasonablerisk of injury to healthor the environment, as requiredby the Toxic Substances ControlAct (TSCA). The EPA said thatthe increasing number of limitationson the use of lead fishing gearon some federal and state lands,as well as various education andoutreach activities, call into questionwhether a national ban on leadin fishing gear would be the leastburdensome, adequately protectiveapproach to address the concern, ascalled for under TSCA. EPA’s letteralso notes that the prevalenceof non-lead alternatives is increasingand suggests a gradual movetoward nontoxic components.. Thefishing tackle industry had unitedwith anglers in general in opposingthe lead ban, saying it would becostly to implement now.ATV’sMotorcyclesRt. 33 EastBuckhannon, WV304-472-4824www.supersmittys.comOn Aug. 3, the American BirdConservancy and a number ofother groups petitioned EPA underSection 21 of the Toxic Substancescontinue to the next pageColby Dight used a bow for this 8point.

In fact,going out and hunting simply to geta deer for the meat is somethingthat was done back in the days ofthe pilgrims and Indians when othermeat sources were scarce. Nowadays,it’s actually cheaper andmore cost effective to go purchasea side of beef and butcher it yourself.Deer are elusive creaturesand even the most experience deerhunter does not bag a tasty buckevery deer season. It also takes alot of time and effort to scout out agood place to hunt where you willhave the most success in getting adeer. If you are looking for cheapmeat then you probably also havea full-time job you can ill afford totake time off from to scout out theperfect hunting spot.Venison is, however, very deliciousand healthful, low in fat andwith its own distinct flavor. That’sassuming it has been properlydressed after being taken. Baggingyour deer for consumption adds aflavor of its own to the meat andthat alone should be one of the reasonswhy you get up in the morningto go hunting. The flavor ofwild venison cannot be duplicatedby ranch-raised deer, but no matterwhat, deer meat is some of the bestmeat to be naturally found acrossthe United States.If you’re not going to take the meatand you only want the deer for theMOUNTAIN STATETAXIDERMY• Game Heads • Birds• Fish • Bear • Rugs• Life Size AnimalsKenny ShafferTaxidermist & Graduate OfNorthwoods School Of TaxidermyCOUNTRY CLUB ROADELKINS, WVPAWNJIM’S GUN SHOPRT #6 BOX 248Buckhannon, WV304-472-1037FISHING TACKLE CAMPING SUPPLIESARCHERY TRAPPING SUPPLIESprize rack of its antlers, then youhave no business being out in thewoods in the first place.

Assuming thatyou are hunting white-tailed deer,you are going to want to get intothe woods early enough to get toyour spot and set-up. Don’t forgetto wear you orange, this is a safetymeasure so that other hunters cansee you from a distance and don’tshot at you. Once you have set-upand climbed into your tree standor climbed into your ground blind,the best thing for you to do is to sitdown and don’t move. Deer do seeso the stiller you sit the better offyou will be. Wait. Just sit and wait.Do not make any fast movements,not even if you are swatting at anannoying fly. If you’ve broughta book along with you, turn yourpages slowly and as quietly as possibleso that the deer doesn’t hearor see you.This is really the basis of deerhunting.

and while you may not blend intothe woods to another hunter, youwill definitely blend into your surroundingsthe seer. Deer are colorblind so they will not see you sittingthere as long as you are still.Camouflage is especially handy forthe bow hunters who want to get inclose to the deer for the best kill.You can also hide your scentthanks to the many different scentcovering products that are availableon the market. There are twotypes. The cover-up products hideyour scent. The attractant coversyour scent but also sends out anodor that brings in the deer. It doeshelp if you start out clean when youhead into the woods. It’s best tomake sure your clothing is washedin baking soda and then packed ina plastic bag with a piece of thefoliage or greenery that you foundaround your hunting site.When you get ready to go out,take a shower and wash your bodywith baking soda as well. Thishelps neutralize any body odor thatis on your clothing and on you.Stay away from foods that haveheavy odors - such as bacon or onions- and do not fill up your gastank in the morning so you don’thave the lingering smell of gasolineon you. Even though you andyour clothing are clean and you areusing an attracting scent, try to stayupwind of your quarry as much asyou can. Remember that when thewind blows, it will blow your scentaway.When your deer comes into rangeand you know that this is one youwant to try for, take you time takingyour shot. No hunter shouldever try shooting at a running animal.All you will do is wound itand possible lost it in the woods asit runs away.Shoulder Mounts$400 - Free Shirt/HatFullTimeTaxidermistMOUNTAIN STATE LOG HOMESThe Source For....---- Log Homes---- Log Siding---- 2 x 6 T & G Spruce---- 1 x 6 T & G White Pine---- Log Screws & PVC Foam Tape---- 6 x 6 White Pine Posts & Beams---- 3 x 6 White Pine Floor Joists Ceiling Joists & RaftersA return to nature's beauty at Low, Low CostAll logs are cut and processed in Ireland, West VirginiaMill Direct PricesFree DeliveryCustom KitsCall or Write for our CatalogBuilder Inquiries WelcomedP.O.
