/%j A?43 R.C.A.F. FLYERS MAKE SURVEY OF BUFFALO "Making 1,300 miles from McMurray, Northern Alberta, in less than 12 hours, a party of Royal Canadian Air Force flyers, headed by Flight Lieut. J. C. Uhlman, arrived back in Winnipeg after an uneventful flight which completed a census survey of the buffalo in the Wood Buffalo Park. Party left Stevenson Field, February 12, on a mission for the surveys branch of the Northwest Territories and Yukon, to make a count of the buffalo herds found in the park. More than 1,500 animals were counted. The experiment was to determine if an accurate count could be made from the air."
310 The practice of sowing grain of various kinds in duck marshes is one that is frequently carried out and one which usually produces good results. There is a distinction between planting grain as a duck food and trying to make a profit from duck club land as a ranch." A recent report has been received in this office, showing the resul o0f the crow and magpie campaign conducted by the Provincial Government in Alberta, covering the years 1924 - 1929 inclusive.

This may be misleading to those who are contemplating going to the Territory to hunt after July 1. The open season for non-residents for hunting these big game animals throughout Alaska is from September I to June 20. In certain areas along the Gulf of Alaska and on the Alaska Peninsula residents of Alaska are restricted to the season September 1 to June 20, but elsewhere in the Territory after July 1 they will be permitted to hunt these bears at any time of the year.
