John Scheetz said there were other items inherited from family members that were taken, including a 3030 rifle and a collection of approximately 30 old pocket knives that had belonged to Karen Fields father and grandfather.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 13, 2014 HUNTING Expect changes for hunting zones A, D this fall If you hunt in Zone D, there are several major changes this year to fall hunting regulations that you need to know about. And, if your hunting spot was in the northern portion of Zone A, you might be hunting in Zone C now. If you hunt in south ern Manatee County, Sarasota County, southwest DeSoto County, west Charlotte County, southeast Okeechobee County, south St. Lucie County, Martin County or north Palm Beach County, you now have later fall hunting season dates than what youre used to, because the boundary line between the two zones has been adjusted. The boundary line used to be State Road 70, but hunters had noted, and recent biologi the above-mentioned areas have a breeding period that occurs later than that of most of the deer in Zone A. These deer actually have a breeding period more in line with deer living in Zone C. It is because of this that a number of local hunters asked the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to move the boundary line between hunting zones A and C, so that all or parts of these counties would instead be included in Zone C, which has the later hunting season dates that better align with when the rut occurs in these areas. The new boundary line between hunting zones A and C begins at the Gulf of Mexico and runs northeast through Charlotte Harbor and up the Peace River until it intersects with S.R. 70. The line then follows S.R. 70, running east until it meets U.S. 441 north of Lake Okeechobee. It then follows U.S. 441 south, where it proceeds around the eastern shore of Lake Okeechobee. The line then turns off U.S. 441 and onto S.R. 80 and runs just a few miles before turning east and following County Road 880, running just a few miles before joining back up with U.S. 98/441/S.R. 80/Southern Boulevard until it reaches the Atlantic Ocean. This new line separating hunting zones A and C affects only the fall hunting seasons. Spring turkey season dates remain unaffected and will continue as they have been. In other words, spring turkey season south of S.R. 70 will continue to open the the rest of the state, the season will continue to open the third Saturday of March. The daily bag limit for turkeys during the spring and fall hunting seasons has been increased to two on private lands. How ever, you may still take only one turkey per day on wildlife management areas, and in Holmes County, the daily and season limits remain one turkey dur ing the spring, with no fall season. In the rest of the state, the fall and spring season bag limits have not changed and are still two. If you hunt in the Pan handle in Zone D, that zone has now been divided into two deer man agement units (DMUs), each with its own unique set of antler regulations and antlerless deer harvest days. This new change is part of a larger, statewide project aimed at managing deer on a more local level and pro viding hunters, landowners and other stakeholders a greater say in deer management. The FWC conducted a public outreach and input process in northwest Florida during the Commission received input and comments from hunters, farmers and the general public regarding how they would like to see deer managed in the newly proposed DMUs. A technical assistance group made up of deer enthu siasts was then formed, and this team developed goals and objectives for the two DMUs. As a result of this outreach process and ideas provided by the group, the FWC passed rules for both public and private lands in both of the newly created DMUs in Zone D, with Interstate 10 being the dividing line between the two DMUs. North of The new regulations require that bucks harvested 1 inch long) on one side OR have an antler with a main beam length of at least 10 inches. South of I-10 in DMU-D1, the minimum antler requirement is now two points (each point having to be at least 1 inch long) on one side. The antler regulations in each DMU are intended to protect most 1.5-year-old bucks from being shot, while bucks. Since antler development is different within the units, different antler regulations were needed to accomplish this goal. However, youth (15 years old and younger) are exempt from these new antler requirements in both DMUs, and they may continue to harvest bucks that have an antler that is at least 5 inches long. This was important to hunters who indicated they wanted to encourage youth to hunt. These new antler regulations and youth exemption apply to both private lands and wildlife management areas within Zone D. There are also changes to the antlerless deer sea son (doe days) on private lands within Zone D. season is now eight days distributed across four weekends. These weekends are the Saturdayof muzzleloading gun season, the third weekend of general gun season and the weekend after Christmas. In DMU-D1 (south of I-10), the antler less season is now four days consisting of two popular holiday weekends the weekend after Thanksgiving and the one after Christmas. The purpose of modifying the antler less deer season is to spread out the hunting opportunity, so that more hunters could par ticipate without reducing deer populations. There are differences in the current deer density between the two DMUs, and that is why there are fewer days to take antlerless deer south of I-10. These changes will be monitored to measure any impacts they may have on the deer harvest and hunter satisfaction within each DMU. The FWCs Deer Management Program has been working with the public in zones A, B and C to get preferences for DMUs within these hunting zones. Be on the lookout for proposals as a result, and you may keep up with any proposed changes at Tony Young always gets excited this time of the year as hunting season, cooler weather and football season are just around the corner .

JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South Tastes nothing like chicken My father-in-law was complaining about rac coons recently and de bating the best way to keep them out of his gar bage cans. From what I gather, he doesnt mind them visiting his yard or scrounging for food. His biggest complaint is that they dont clean up after themselves. They got into some Styrofoam containers, tore them to pieces and left them all over the yard, he said. I dont know why they cant just eat the food without scattering trash every where. I offered up my allpurpose, go-to solution that involves a spotlight, who mind their own business. He speculated that the best thing to do would be to kill one and leave its carcass in the yard as a warning for others. However, I dont think my mother-in-law is on board with that idea just yet. As we were having this conversation (over dinner), it reminded me ever killed. It happened when I was about nine years old. Im not sure which one of my brothers was involved, but whoever it was saw a coon up in the highest branches of a hickory tree. Nothing would do but for me to shoot him with my old single-shot 20 gauge. It took two blasts of No. 8s, but after the second one, he tumbled to the ground with a thud. As luck would have it, my father was barbe cuing chicken at the Ia monia Lake Clubhouse that day and had told us to stop by for lunch af ter we were done hunt ing. That was perfect because it meant Id get to show off my trophy to him and all the other folks who were gath ered there. (Its hard to overestimate how im portant that last part was to a young boy.) When we got there, I dragged the coon up to the old cinder block and steel grill on the side of the clubhouse to show my father. Daddy smiled and said good job or something. But since he was busy cooking, Charlie Cook Bridges offered to show me how to skin the thing. Very shortly, I had my very own raccoon hide, ready to be tanned and hung on the wall. I brought the hide back to show Daddy, but all he said was, Wheres the rest of him? I explained that I threw the carcass into the creek. cleaning him, he said. All of the sudden, I didnt like where this was going. I waded in the creek, got the earthly remains of my coon and cleaned him as well as a nineyear-old is inclined to do. I brought it back over to my father and watched as he quartered the carcass and threw it on the grill. I remember thinking, Who in the world is going to eat that with all this delicious chicken sitting here? I learned the answer as soon as I grabbed a plate and reached for that very chicken. Oh no you dont, Daddy said, pointing at the coon. Youre not eating chicken. Your lunch is right over there. While everyone else got a plate of slowcooked barbecue leg quarters, I had to wait on an old, boar coon to go from raw to rare. When it looked done enough, Daddy slathered some barbecue sauce on it, turned it a couple of times and then slapped it on my plate. I ate as much of the meat as I could, but I couldnt stand it and made another run at the chicken. Whats the matter? You didnt like that coon? Daddy asked. No, sir. Well, too bad. Next time, dont shoot one unless you plan on eat ing it or you know somebody who will. From that day until this one, every raccoon I see brings back mem ories of pink, musky meat, covered in barbe cue sauce with a lead pellet in every other bite. Ive ignored a lot of my fathers advice over the years, but no matter what else Ive done, you can bet I never shot an other coon. ROBER T ROBBIE PICKRON FOR Calhoun Co.

Covenant Hospice staff presented each Senior contributions to the community. Each year on Aug. 21 there are various events and activities held, across the United States, in recognition of National Senior Citizens Day. This day was created as a day to support, honor and show appreciation to our seniors and to recognize their achievements and the contributions they make to our communities On Aug.19, 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5847 declaring Aug. 21 as National Senior Citizens Day. In his Presidential Proclamation, he said: For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute. We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our com munities are good places in which to mature and grow older places in which older people can participate to assistance, and services they need to continue to lead lives of independence and dignity. To celebrate National Senior Citizens Day, spend time with the senior citizens that you know-which may be your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, friends, and etc. Let them know that they are special, appreciated and loved. It may also be a good day to volunteer at a retirement home and share your smile with those who may not otherwise get a visitor today. OBITUARIES
