What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Thursday, Nov. 26, 1959-3 State at Top in Big Game Kills A recent report of big game harvests in 48 states for 1958 released by the U. S. Dept. of Interior, Bureau of Sports Fish- eries and Wildlife puts Montana right at the top as a big game hunter's paradise. Montana was first in bighorn sheep, mountain goat and grizzly bear harvest. In fact, this state provided the only grizzly bear hunting in 1958 throughout the entire nation and state hunters bagged almost twice as many goats as all of the rest of the states combined. Montana ranks second only to Idaho in the elk harvest and second to Wyoming in the total harvest of antelope and moose. Deer hunters bagged more deer in Texas, Utah and Oregon but Montana deer hunters enjoyed a higher percentage of success than any of the three. Black bear hunters found bet- ter hunting only in Washington, Idaho, Michigan and Maine. Last, but not least, Montana was 19th in the number of wild turkeys harvested. Indications point to an equally good season in 1959. FOR INSURANCE CALL Barry Benson in Thompson Falls Each Wednesday Contact at Martha Cross residence Ph.
