By Mike Bodenchuk
Now is the time to begin to plan
your fall 1986 Big Game hunts.
That's right, 1986.
Maybe I have been in the sun too
long, but I try to plan ahead and
hunt different species. Many Cole-
man County sportsmen are interest-
ed in mule deer, bear, elk and the
like and now is the time to begin to
For most of us, an unguided hunt
is the way to go. It's less expensive
and a certain adventuresome spirit
goes along with the preparations.
The cost of a do-it-yourself big
game hunt is less than you might
imagine. If several people partici-
pate, costs can be cut and the fun
doubled or tripled. Projecting costs
is difficult but hunts can be had for
antelope and deer for under $600
per person and elk for well under
$760 per person. There are top
notch hunting areas just as there
are sorry ones but with a little
homework you can have a hunt of
your life for a fraction of a guided
Let’s look at the options for
several different species.
ANTELOPE- The antelope hunt-,
ing state is Wyoming and more
antelope are harvested there ttyan
many others combined. Licetises
cost a non-resident $100 and are
rarely sold out. Although “you must
AUSTIN: Over the past two
decades, a controversy has develop
ed concerning the treatment of
persons with hardening of the
arteries, or atherosclerosis. The
treatment seems to some like a
“miracle cure", but to others, chela-
tion therapy provides only false
hope. According to the American
Heart Aasociation, no clinical proof
has been found that chelation ther-
apy is good for anything, except in
the treatment of heavy metal poi-
soning and digitalis toxicity. No
double-blind tests have been per
formed to prove that it relieves
hardening of the arteries or helps
clear clogged blood vessels.
Chelation therapy involves the
administration of a man-made amino
acid, called EDTA, intraven-
ously. EDTA naturally seeks out
and binds calcium. In the early
1960s, this fact led to speculation
that EDTA could be used to remove
calcium deposits from atherosclero-
tic plaque in arteries and veins. The
theory proposed that through regu
lar treatments of EDTA, the re-
mainder of the blockage would
break up, relieving the narrowing of
According to William L. Winters,
Jr„ M.D., President of the Ameri-
can Heart Association in Texas, this
theory is faulty on three levels.
“First, the material in atheroscle-
rotic plaque is primarily fiber, not
calcium. Second, EDTA has not
been proven to remove the calcium
from plaques. And, finally, no
persuasive evidence from properly
controlled studies has established
that chelation therapy relieves sym-
ptoms,” said Winters.
"Therefore,” according to Win-
ters, “anyone who accepts chelation
therapy becomes a 'guinea pig' and
unless the treatment is part of a
carefully controlled trial, he or she
is a guinea pig without a purpose, as
no useful information is going to be
The dangers of chelation ther
apy provide further reason to avoid
its use. There is a very real danger
of kidney failure, and it is also
known to cause bone marrow de-
pression. shock, low blood pressure,
convulsion, disturbances of regular
heart rhythm, allergic-type reac-
tions and respiratory arrest.
In addition, a number of deaths
have been linked to the procedure,
not to mention a number of people
now on dialysis because of kidney
failure linked to chelation therapy
Dr. Winters is also concerned that
the use of chelation therapy will
delay the application of proven
therapies for people with atheros
“The American Heart Association
has led the way in providing
information on proven ways to
reduce the risk of cardiovascular
disease. Both in terms of prevention
and treatment of disorders of the
heart and blood vessels, the Ameri
can Heart Association provides
direction based on sound medical
and scientific evidence”, said Win
tors. “Our stand on chelation ther
apy is in agreement with the
mission and work of the American
Heart Association and is designed to

are excellent. The Casper and
Newcastle areas are good bets.
Closer to home, New Mexico has
good antelope populations and ex-
cellent trophies in some areas.
Licenses cost $123 and are on a
drawing baais. The odds of drawing
in the Northeast quarter of the state
is best although trophy quality is
low (except for some all private
ranches). Roy, NM, is the center of
some excellent hunting. The Ros
well area has some excellent heads
as well although the odds of drawing
are about 1 in 8. Arizona, with its
$250 license is a bit steeper. With
trophy heads available though it
may be worth trying to beat the
odds for a permit.
ELK - Rocky Mountain elk exist in
10 of the 11 western states, al-
though Nevada has very few. Gen-
erally the states of Idaho, Montana,
Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico
and Arizona are the most easily
Idaho and Montana have a good
deal of pressure on their elk and the
best bet is a pack trip into one of the
many wilderness areas. Renting
horses can tally up the dollars, but
it's the best way to hang an elk rack
on the wall. Montana's licensing
system, at present, is terrible and
unless they overhaul it or you know
someone in Helena you’d better
forget hunting there next year.
Arizona has a severely restricted
number of public licenses, but the
trophy quality is good to excellent.
The $300 tag fee tends to bend a
budget, but you didn’t get into
hunting to save money anyway.
Right? The best bet is as close to the
White Mountain Apache Reserva-
tion as possible.
Colorado elk are pressured se
verely and, in my opinion, hardly
worth the effort in the regular
season. If you shoot a bow or
muzzleloader some hunts can be
excellent. A muzzleloader hunt on
the border of Rocky Mountain
National Park or just inside the
Letha Saunders Missionary
Group of First Baptist Church met
Monday night, September 9, at 7
p.m. for their regular meeting with
13 members present.
Mrs. Virginia McHorse, chairman,
presided for the meeting and open-
ing prayer was led by Mary Row.
Roll call and minutes of the last
meeting were read by Mrs. Maurine
Blair. The prayer calendar for
missionaries having birthdays on
this day was read by Mrs. Peggy
Garrett, prayer chairman. For her
>tate line in the Sangre de Christos
Mountains would be my choice.
New Mexico elk also receive a lot
of pressure. The best bet is a
private land hunt but these cost
$300-$900 over the cost of your
license ($210). Again, a bow hunt in
the Gila Wilderness is a good bet
along with limited access permits in
units 66 and 4. Call it familiarity, but
I prefer New Mexico as an elk state.
Next week: Deer and Bear.
scripture she read from Romans
12:9-15. She also voiced the prayer
for these missionaries.
Mrs. Garrett was in charge of the
program,"Deny -Take Up -Follow,”
which is the theme for the 1985
Week of Prayer for State Missions.
Members participating in the pro-
gram included Sammie Chambers,
Ruth Hext, Mary Row and Carrie
Howard. They told of the Mission
projects in various sections of the
state where people are involved in
helping to build church buildings.
Also of the leadership of bi-vocation-
al pastors in getting churches
organized and being of assistance to
the local people to get them involv-
ed in their own community. It was
quoted that “in view of the fact that
Texas population is increasing ra-
pidly and a large number of people
from various ethnic groups are here,
the bi-vocational pastor and church
builders are very important.” The
Mary Hill Davis Offering helps pay
the salary of these trained people.
Mrs. Mary Row and Gladys
Garner were co-hostesses and serv-
ed refreshments to the following:
Mmes. Virginia McHorse, Maurine
Blair, Peggy Garrett, Angell Hamm,
Bobbie Lee Gardner, Ruth Hext,
Mary Trimble, Iva Dell Boldt; and
Misses Flora Dee Daughtry, Letha
Saunders and Carrie Howard.
