"Dylan is another kid that will get involved with a lot of things and always goes the extra mile and tries to make him- self better at whatever he does. "I look forward to Dylan growing as a player next sea- son." Clark was second on the Bulldogs in rebounding with 160 (5.9/game), fourth in scoring at 6.4 ppg and shot 56 percent from the field. "One of the things he re- ally provided for us was a calm composure that didn't allow him to be taken out of the game mentally," May said. "He provided us re- bounding and was kind of a steady player. He's coming along scoring-wise and is a kid who surprises teams. 'Tfe'll expect a lot from Ryan next year - better re- bounding, better scoring and more consistency." continued from page 9 Baxendale averaged 5.2 points and 4 rebounds per game this season. "He's a good jumper and a good athlete," May said. "He provided us some good scoring games and good re- bounding. He's a good energy kid." McKayan May was a jack-of-all-trades for the Bulldogs, who had "good length" to defend as a guard and played good defense for the Bullldogs, Coach May said of his nephew. "He did a nice job re- bounding for us and can han- dle the ball really well," the coach said. "He can run. All of the seniors are athletic and can get up and down the floor well and defend well. "I'm really proud of that group, which helped us go 46-8 the last two years, win a regional title and reach the championship game at State. That is pretty impressive." Longer deer hunting season among G&F proposals to be discussed next week in Big Horn County BY NATHAN aSTER Hunters in Big Horn County will have two oppor- tunities next week to weigh in on the Wyoming Game and Fish Department's pro- posed hunting season recom- mendations for 2012. Open house meetings are scheduled for Wednes- day, March 21, 6 to 8 p.m., at the Lovell Fire Hall and on Thursday, March 22, 6 to 8 p.m., at Greybull Town Hall. At these meetings, indi- viduals will have opportuni- ties to talk directly with the wildlife biologists and game wardens responsible for managing big game. This year, a couple of the proposals are signifi- cant, according to G&F wild- life biologist Tom Easterly of Greybull. The most notewor- thy one would lengthen the deer-hunting season along the western slope of the Big Horn Mountains by a full week. In the past, it gener- ally ran from Oct. 15 through Oct. 24. The proposal calls for the seasons to be extended through Oct. 31. "People told us in our 'preseason' season-setting meeting that they wanted more opportunities to hunt deer longer than the tradi- tional season, which has end- ed on Oct. 24 in the past," he said. "Right now, we're at a point where our buck ra- tios in the north -- basically from Highway 14 up to the Montana state line -- are pretty good. The number of good bucks has been climb- ing. But down to the south (from Highway 14 down to Ten Sleep), the numbers have been just holding their OWn." Easterly said G&F man- agers have some reserva- tions about the impact the longer season would have on the population on the south- ern end. ,'At this point, it's just a proposal," he said. "If there are folks out there who think that would be a bad thing for buck numbers and quality, we'd sure like to hear from them. "We did hear from some people at our preseason meetings who thought pop- ulations were too low...and that buck quality isn't what they'd like to see." CROP LOSSES The G&F is also propos- ing a decrease in the number of doe and fawn licenses that it issues in most areas of the county, with the exception being in the area along the Shoshone River. "Even landowners have commented that deer num- bers are down,' Easterly said. "We always had these licenses set pretty high in re- sponse to damaged crops." On Shell Creek last year, the G&F issued 400 doe-fawn licenses. This year the pro- posal is for 100 to be issued. the G&F is proposing no sig- nificant changes, according to Easterly. A report on crop damage in Fiscal Year 2011 revealed that the G&F paid out more than $105,000 to landowners to compensate for damage in- flicted by mule deer. More than half of that to- tal was paid out in two areas. The Shoshone River herd was the most prolific, cost- ing landowners $33,941. The Horse Creek herd, to the east of Greybull and up toward Shell, ranked second, with payments of $20,464. Easterly said the G&F is also proposing a decrease in doe and fawn antelope licens- es for this fall. No major changes are proposed for this fall's elk hunting seasons, although there was good discussion about the fall elk hunts during the two recent "pre- season" meetings, which drew about 20 people in Lovell and a dozen or so in Greybull. BIRDS The G&F is considering a lengthening of the pheas- ant hunting season, as well. Until now, it's run from the first Saturday in November through Dec. 31. "Some folks want to have In the Ten Sleep/Hyatt- an opportunity to hunt pheas- ville country, the proposal is to cut the doe-fawn licenses from 250 to 100. Along the Greybull Riv- er, the number of doe-fawn licenses would be cut from 600 to 150. To the north, along the Shoshone River, "where there is still a concern with too many deer in their fields," ants a little longer," Easterly said, adding that the G&F is considering extending the season to Jan. 15. "We've received input from some landowners who aren't too in favor of it be- cause they're tired of peo- ple now knocking on their doors (asking for permission to hunt) -- and from some hunters who don't think we should be putting that much more pressure on our bird population. "But we do have some who are pushing for it pretty hard." Easterly said the pro- posal is "up in the air" at the present time. The G&F will also be talking at the meetings about the turkey hunting season proposals for the fall of 2012 and spring of 2013. Right now, the G&F is proposing to increase license numbers in Area 6, along the Shosho- ne River drainage, from 75 to 100. For hunt areas in south Big Horn County, the pro- posal is to keep license num- bers at 200. "No change from what it has been in the past," Easterly said. He encourages hunt- ers and landowners with opinions about the pro- posed changes to attend next week's meetings. "We have changed pro- posals in the past based upon input we received at these meetings -- so it can and does make a difference," he said. "This is a great opportunity to voice your opinion."
