T Page 6 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES, St. Paul, VA, Thursday, April 4, 2013 Grizzel tosses no no by Allen Gregory Dakota Grizzel faced the minimum number of batters as the junior lefthander tossed a no hitter in Castlewood's 10-0 romp over Twin Springs on Thursday, March 28 Reid Edmonds and Blake Sloce were the hitting stars for the Blue Devils. Each had two hits for the Devils. Edmonds had two triples in the Blue Devils' eight run first inning. Grizzel had an excellent day on the mound as he fanned 11 and walked only 1. The Blue Devils are 1 and 3 on the young season. Spring gobbler hunting season begins April 13 The Spring Gobbler Season in Virginia begins April 13 and ends May 18. 2013. A special Youth Turkey Hunt Day will take place April 6. 2013 for, hun- ters aged 15 and under. Expect- ations for a favorable spring season are high as the recent fall turkey harvest was the highest reported over the past five 5/ears. According to Virginia De- partment of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) Upland Game Bird Project Leader Gary Norman, "Turkeys enjoyed a good fall season and most areas had good mast crops. Coupled with a generally mild winter, gobblers should go into the spring in good physical condi- tion. Growth of turkey pop- ulations have generally been stable with varying densities. Areas with the highest popu- lations are in the Northern Neck and South Piedmont• To improve your chances of success, spend a lot of time in the woods scouting right before the season opens• Gobblers can move considerable distances in March and early April. So do your homework close to the season opener." To ensure a safe and enjoy- able day afield, the VDGIF re- commends the following safety guidelines for Spring Gobbler hunting: 1) Because a gobbler's head is distinguished by its bold white, blue and red colors, NEVER wear white, blue or red clothing not even socks or undershirts - because a flash of white could be mistaken for a turkey. Even a red bandana or blue snack food wrapper could be misread in the woods during turkey season.. 2) Turkey hunters should wear blaze orange when walking to and from their calling positions and when setting up or moving decoys. When you reach your hunting location, tie a strip of blaze orange to a nearby tree to alert others of your presence. 3) Choose a calling position that will provide you with a backstop as wide as your shoulders and will protect you from the top of your head down. A large tree is best. A small tree will not hide slight movements of your hands and shoulders and these movements may cause other hunters tO misinterpret what they are seeing• 4) When choosing a calling position, don't hide so welt that you cannot see what's going on around you. Select a calling position with a good view of your surroundings and where the sun does not distort what you are seeing. 5) Never shoot at a sound or movement. Wait until you have a good, clean, shot at a legal bird. 6) Never move, wave, or make turkey sounds to alert ano- ther hunter of your presence. Instead, call out in a loud voice and remain hidden, until the other hunter acknowledges your presence. 7) Never "stalk a turkey. Another hunter could be behind that gobble and those birds could be decoys. 8) When you harvest a gob- bler, carry it out of the woods draped in blaze orange. Other- wise, another hunter might just see the bird and not you. By taking these basic precau- tions, hunters protect themselves and protect others. Bring home that gobbler safely, by following these guidelines. Also, remem- ber to tag your bird by notching the appropriate tag on your license before moving it from the place of kill, and check your bird by calling 1-866-GOT- GAME (468-4263) or b.y using the mternet www.HuntFishVA.com.
