be satisfied with a short season, I recommend that the season be reduced to five and one-half days. Such action will be in line with public opinion in Lincoln county and will tend to emphasize the importance of fire prevention. This was the opinion of Mr. W. B. Chilson of the Merrill Daily Herald. It was also his opinion that the sportsmen who have recommanded a short season would show their appreciation by co-operating in conservation activities in the future. In order to restore the food supply in the burned area, I recommend that the conservation department buy at least $200 worth of white clover seed for planting in the burned area. It will grow especially well where the soil has been plowed. Plowed furrows are especially abundant in the northernpart of the burned area where a big increase in grouse willresult as soon as food conditions become favorable. Summary The conservation department, in any action it may take in shortening the grouse season, may state that such action is necessary due to the following facts: 1. About one-half of the grouse cover in Lincoln county has been destroyed by fires. This in itself will result in a big drop in next year's grouse Dp. 2. A long grouse season would increase the fire hazard in the unburned areas vhere any additional burning would necessitate the complete closing of the grouse seasan in Lincoln county in 1934. F. J. W. Schmidt Sept. 20, 1933
