With the spring gobbler season coming up, one of my goals during the spring hunt is to get some close- up pictures of a big gobbler. In past seasons, I have had big gobblers come to my calling in full strut. The turkey hens don't seem quite as wild during the spring. I have had them feeding and walking all around me. I know my camo is good enough to hide me but the movement required to take the pictures might be difficult to pull off. If you are interested in wildlife photography, you should give it a try. There is a lot to learn but it is a lot of fun. The West Virginia Wildlife Re- sources Division holds a nongame wildlife photo contest each year and a local photographer received hon- orable mention. Here are the win- ners: Phyllis Davis of Kegley took first place for her picture of a bright or- ange crayfish with a black back. Davis also received an Honorable Mention for her photograph of a white-footed mouse. Robert Bell of Williamstown captured second place with his photograph of three imma- ture green herons while his photo- graph of a male cardinal captured third place. In addition, Bell placed two Honorable mentions with a red- bellied woodpecker and a female cardinal. Additional Honorable Mentions were awarded to Ronald Pauley of Saint Albans for his picture of a fk/ing squirrel; Bruce Felton of Mor- gantown for his killdeer; and Roy Mann of Lewisburg for his ruby- throated hummingbird photo, SPECIALISTS IN INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP MEDICAL INSURANCE On the Local Front Michael Massie and Daniel McClung are shown with the four big bass they caught March 8 in the Greenbrier River.
