The hunting outlook is pre- pared annually, using current and previous year's mast condi- tions, brood reports and predic- tions from over I00 DNR field personnel. It has proven quite accurate on a statewide basis over the years. Regional reports on the hunting outlook and mast survey are contained in the an- nual Small Game Bulletin. Hunt- ers should consult these more detailed reports for the areas they will be hunting. Small Game Bulletins are available at all DNR district offices, the EI- kins Operations Center and Charleston."

He caught the striper on June 14 at Smith Mountain Lake. led directly to all 19 points scored by East. It all began when Mountain- eer Quarterback Mike Hunter, making his first start, fumbled on the second play of the game and Jimmy Bennett recovered for East at the Allegheny 35 yard line. From there the Spartans al- ternated the running of Mike Patterson and Steve Wilson with Patterson scoring from the four yard line. Twice in the drive East was forced to convert on fourth down plays. Sam Johnson kicked the extra point and the Spartans led 7-0. In the ten play drive Patterson and Wilson car- ried eight times. Early in the second period, defensive tackle Jimmy Bennett, who is making a career out of recovering opponent fumbles, stopped the Mountaineers first serious drive when he captured another loose ball at the 41 yard line. But the Spartans were un- able to move the ball on the sloppy field and turned it over on downs. The wet and slippery weather conditions continued to plague Mountaineers tried to get the of- fense going but were held and on a fourth down punt attempt, a bad snap from center got away from Dave Dixon and the Spar- tans had the ball at the Al- legheny 11. Spartan Quarterback Sidney Coles then threw his only two completions of the game, the first to Johnson, then a four yarder to Scott Weikle good for the final score of the evening. The Mountaineer wish bone of- fense, geared to ball control, just was not able to play catch-up, particularly in bad weather con- ditions. The Spartans got the ball five times on Mountaineer turnovers and gave it up just once when they fumbled wlth 32 seconds left in the game. That gives the Spartans a +18 for the season in give-away/take-away statistics, a big factor in their 6-I record. The Mountaineers dropped their season record to 2-4. The series with Allegheny now has the Spartans leading three games to two. The Mountaineers registered Allegheny on their next posses- just 78 yards total offense in the sion when Sam Johnson record- game, 60 rushing and 18 pass- ered a fumble at the 50 yard line. And once again East could not move the ball and Aaron Ambler punted to the thirty. Having been unable to move the ball on the ground, the Mountaineers went to the air on first down at their 30. That proved to be a mistake as Mike Hunter was pressured and his lng, but only six of those yards came in the second half. Lenny Vail led the Mountaineer rushers with 26 yards on 9 carries. Hunter completed two of three passes for 18 yards and had one interception. Steve Wilson again paced the East rushers with 80 yards on 14 carries. Patterson added 37 yards on 14 tries.
