Chuck took the checkers with Dan less than a bumper behind. Coming in third was point leader C.V. Elms. Porter and Eastman win Semi-Features Carroll Porter and "Brother" Eastman won the second leg of the triple crown by besting the nine car field in the semi-feature events. Only one yellow plagued the street event as Gene Pierson spun out on the third turn, halting action for a bit. David Como (75-S. Barre) grabbed the lead for four laps before losing it in turn one to Tom Forward. Forward was able to hold on for only one lap as Porter came storming around the fourth turn on hap seven, and never looked back until the dash was over. Eastman had a much easier time of it. Taking the pole position, Eastman was never in serious trouble, fighting off minor challenges from A1 Burbank and Dan Beede. Elms worked himself up from the eighth position to place a hard-driving third. Consi's won by Hatch and Morgan Jim Morgan, current point leader in the street division was nearly shut out, but managed to come out strong in the consolation event, winning in the final three laps. Starting fifth in a group of five cars, Morgan needed " the final three laps. Starting fifth in a group of five cars, Morgan needed seven laps to establish his lead. Thomas Spooner (01-W. Topsham) finished a solid second with Dustin Downing placing third. Clayton Hatch (56- Topsham) drove around and through traffic and yellow flags in his quest for a checker flag. Hatch, starting seventh in a field of nine, had to con- tend with a spin-out on the first lap, dodging Bob Shepard (28-Graniteville) hanging precariously on the edge of the bank on turn three, and a four car pile-up. Doug Roberts (09- Plainfield) led for two laps before being thrown into second by the aggressive driving of Orin Howe (3W. Lebanon). Hatch, however, was hanging tough and at the halfway mark, moved in front for good. Howe finished second with Bill Phelps (97- Thefford) coming in third. Jim Morgan wins Street Feature It was a race for the trophies as 17 street machines started their engines in quest for the metal given out by Jerry Humphrey Insurance Agency. The race was marred by nine yellow flags and as many restarts before the 25 lap feature event was history. With Dave Como leading with three laps gone, Kendall Sanborn (12-Newbury) lost a tire and came to a rest in turn number three.

(-3) DEER SEASONS The 192 regular deer season will again consist of two hunting zones with a special experimental area. within a portion of the southern zone. The season in the northern zone will open on Wednesday, November 3 and continue through Sunday, November 14. The southern zone will he open from Wednesday, November 3 through Wednesday, November 24. In the western part of the state the dividing line between the two zones begins at Exit 32 in North Woodstock, then runs along Rt. 112 to Rte. 302 in Bath then along Rte. 302 to the Connecticut River. The experimental zone is the same as last year and is basically the northwest corner of the southern zone. In the special area only deer have an antler a minimum of three inches may he taken during the regular season except by special permit. To apply for a permit hunters should write for an ap- plication prior to October 4. Landowners who own more than 15 contiguous acres within the permit area and upon which the owner has his residence will be given priority. A maximum of 1400 permits will be issued by lottery. The statewide archery season for 1982 will commence on Saturday, September 11 and continue through Wednesday, December 15. During the regular deer season of November 3 through 24 archers must adhere to the restriction on antlers in the experimental area. The muzzleloader season for 1982 will he eleven days before the regular deer season. The starting date is October 23 statewide. PROPOSED LAW COULD DESTROY HUNTER SAFETY PROGRAM Vermont's hunter safety program, designed to educate hunters and others interested in firearms, will be virtually destroyed ff a hill now being considered by Congress is passed. ' '' .... H.R. 6115 would siphon money from each state's federal assistance fund derived from an excise+ tax on firearms and ammunition, paid mostly by hunters, to turn the money over to crime victims. Vermont's Deputy Fish & Game Commissioner, Gary W. Moore, expressed his concern about the proposed law in a recent letter to Vermont's Congreesional delegation. Deputy Commissioner Moore said in his letter, : "The intent of the resolution which is to establish a '... trust fund to be used for purposes of providing compensation to victims of crime and for other purposes' is laudable. My concern is that a noble came not be used as justification to gut a very important program such as Hunter Safety. The passage of H.R. 6115 would mean the loss of 72.8 per- cent of the funding for our Hunter Safety program. Last year the Vermont Fish & Game Department received $169,800 from the excise tax. The loss of $123,614 of that money would virtually eliminate the vital programs of Hunter Safety that Vermont is known for." Many states, including Vermont, require that a person pass a hunter safety course as a prerequisite to purchasing a hunting license. Approximately 400 volunteer instructors teach the courses throughout Vermont. GET READY FOR FALL HUNTING Now is the time to start getting the eye sharpened for the fall seasons when yon find that the fish are not biting you should take some time to sharpen your skills with a gun and bow. I like to shoot three or four times a week with my bow from July on so that by the time the October season rolls around my arm is strong and my aim is good. Unlike a gun, a bow requires a lot of practice before hunting is attempted. This must be done every year as the muscles in the arms that are needed for accurate shooting are not used very much in other activities. Trap and skeet ranges are a fine place for the shotguaner to get in some practice before the fall bird seasons open. There are several ranges within driving distance. Now that most of the first cutting is done chuck hunters can again find their quarry and sharpen their shooting ability before deer season. At the very least a few rounds fired at a target will tell if the rLqe is still accurate after the winter and spring storage. COON TRIALS IN THETFORD The weekend of July 10-11 will find many coon dog owners and interested spectators in Thefford for a two day UKC coon trial hosted by the Upper Valley Fish and Game Club at their club grounds in Thetford Center. It is worth a trip to the event just to watch as the dogs perform. The events will include swimming, treeing and a bench show. If you have never seen well trained hunting dogs in action you should go. HEARING SET FOR MIDDLEBURY A public hearing will be held by the Fish and Game Board in Middlebury on Thursday, July 8 to discuss the proposed regulations to reduce the number of tipups used in ice fishing and to prohibit the sale of the use of bear dogs to hunt bear. The meeting will begin at 7 p,m. at the Sugar House Restaurant on Rte. 7 north of Middlebury. THINNER LINES CATCH MORE FISH Research done recently shows that the thinner the line the better the chances for a strike. Whether the thinner line makes for better lure action or just less visibility to the fish is unanswered. The line diameters differ greatly among different brands offering lines of the same poundage. To increase your chances anglers should use thin, low visibility line. FAWN KILLED The young buck fawn pictured in last week's J.O. was savagely killed by dogsSunday. The fawn and a second or- phan had been kept in a pen at the Buck Lake Conservation Camp. The camp manager awoke to find the two fawns dead and a doberman and a sheepdog in the pen.

Chuck took the checkers with Dan less than a bumper behind. Coming in third was point leader C.V. Elms. Porter and Eastman win Semi-Features Carroll Porter and "Brother" Eastman won the second leg of the triple crown by besting the nine car field in the semi-feature events. Only one yellow plagued the street event as Gene Pierson spun out on the third turn, halting action for a bit. David Como (75-S. Barre) grabbed the lead for four laps before losing it in turn one to Tom Forward. Forward was able to hold on for only one lap as Porter came storming around the fourth turn on hap seven, and never looked back until the dash was over. Eastman had a much easier time of it. Taking the pole position, Eastman was never in serious trouble, fighting off minor challenges from A1 Burbank and Dan Beede. Elms worked himself up from the eighth position to place a hard-driving third. Consi's won by Hatch and Morgan Jim Morgan, current point leader in the street division was nearly shut out, but managed to come out strong in the consolation event, winning in the final three laps. Starting fifth in a group of five cars, Morgan needed " the final three laps. Starting fifth in a group of five cars, Morgan needed seven laps to establish his lead. Thomas Spooner (01-W. Topsham) finished a solid second with Dustin Downing placing third. Clayton Hatch (56- Topsham) drove around and through traffic and yellow flags in his quest for a checker flag. Hatch, starting seventh in a field of nine, had to con- tend with a spin-out on the first lap, dodging Bob Shepard (28-Graniteville) hanging precariously on the edge of the bank on turn three, and a four car pile-up. Doug Roberts (09- Plainfield) led for two laps before being thrown into second by the aggressive driving of Orin Howe (3W. Lebanon). Hatch, however, was hanging tough and at the halfway mark, moved in front for good. Howe finished second with Bill Phelps (97- Thefford) coming in third. Jim Morgan wins Street Feature It was a race for the trophies as 17 street machines started their engines in quest for the metal given out by Jerry Humphrey Insurance Agency. The race was marred by nine yellow flags and as many restarts before the 25 lap feature event was history.

(-3) DEER SEASONS The 192 regular deer season will again consist of two hunting zones with a special experimental area. within a portion of the southern zone. The season in the northern zone will open on Wednesday, November 3 and continue through Sunday, November 14. The southern zone will he open from Wednesday, November 3 through Wednesday, November 24. In the western part of the state the dividing line between the two zones begins at Exit 32 in North Woodstock, then runs along Rt. 112 to Rte. 302 in Bath then along Rte. 302 to the Connecticut River. The experimental zone is the same as last year and is basically the northwest corner of the southern zone. In the special area only deer have an antler a minimum of three inches may he taken during the regular season except by special permit. To apply for a permit hunters should write for an ap- plication prior to October 4. Landowners who own more than 15 contiguous acres within the permit area and upon which the owner has his residence will be given priority. A maximum of 1400 permits will be issued by lottery. The statewide archery season for 1982 will commence on Saturday, September 11 and continue through Wednesday, December 15. During the regular deer season of November 3 through 24 archers must adhere to the restriction on antlers in the experimental area. The muzzleloader season for 1982 will he eleven days before the regular deer season. The starting date is October 23 statewide. PROPOSED LAW COULD DESTROY HUNTER SAFETY PROGRAM Vermont's hunter safety program, designed to educate hunters and others interested in firearms, will be virtually destroyed ff a hill now being considered by Congress is passed. ' '' .... H.R. 6115 would siphon money from each state's federal assistance fund derived from an excise+ tax on firearms and ammunition, paid mostly by hunters, to turn the money over to crime victims. Vermont's Deputy Fish & Game Commissioner, Gary W. Moore, expressed his concern about the proposed law in a recent letter to Vermont's Congreesional delegation. Deputy Commissioner Moore said in his letter, : "The intent of the resolution which is to establish a '... trust fund to be used for purposes of providing compensation to victims of crime and for other purposes' is laudable. My concern is that a noble came not be used as justification to gut a very important program such as Hunter Safety. The passage of H.R. 6115 would mean the loss of 72.8 per- cent of the funding for our Hunter Safety program. Last year the Vermont Fish & Game Department received $169,800 from the excise tax. The loss of $123,614 of that money would virtually eliminate the vital programs of Hunter Safety that Vermont is known for." Many states, including Vermont, require that a person pass a hunter safety course as a prerequisite to purchasing a hunting license. Approximately 400 volunteer instructors teach the courses throughout Vermont. GET READY FOR FALL HUNTING Now is the time to start getting the eye sharpened for the fall seasons when yon find that the fish are not biting you should take some time to sharpen your skills with a gun and bow. I like to shoot three or four times a week with my bow from July on so that by the time the October season rolls around my arm is strong and my aim is good. Unlike a gun, a bow requires a lot of practice before hunting is attempted. This must be done every year as the muscles in the arms that are needed for accurate shooting are not used very much in other activities. Trap and skeet ranges are a fine place for the shotguaner to get in some practice before the fall bird seasons open. There are several ranges within driving distance. Now that most of the first cutting is done chuck hunters can again find their quarry and sharpen their shooting ability before deer season. At the very least a few rounds fired at a target will tell if the rLqe is still accurate after the winter and spring storage. COON TRIALS IN THETFORD The weekend of July 10-11 will find many coon dog owners and interested spectators in Thefford for a two day UKC coon trial hosted by the Upper Valley Fish and Game Club at their club grounds in Thetford Center. It is worth a trip to the event just to watch as the dogs perform. The events will include swimming, treeing and a bench show. If you have never seen well trained hunting dogs in action you should go. HEARING SET FOR MIDDLEBURY A public hearing will be held by the Fish and Game Board in Middlebury on Thursday, July 8 to discuss the proposed regulations to reduce the number of tipups used in ice fishing and to prohibit the sale of the use of bear dogs to hunt bear. The meeting will begin at 7 p,m. at the Sugar House Restaurant on Rte. 7 north of Middlebury. THINNER LINES CATCH MORE FISH Research done recently shows that the thinner the line the better the chances for a strike. Whether the thinner line makes for better lure action or just less visibility to the fish is unanswered. The line diameters differ greatly among different brands offering lines of the same poundage. To increase your chances anglers should use thin, low visibility line. FAWN KILLED The young buck fawn pictured in last week's J.O. was savagely killed by dogsSunday. The fawn and a second or- phan had been kept in a pen at the Buck Lake Conservation Camp. The camp manager awoke to find the two fawns dead and a doberman and a sheepdog in the pen.
