Beasley at Large: Let the trials begin

Elk season is over. Let the trials begin. Last year closed another sad chapter on wildlife crimes at the Oregon coast, where poachers had their field days with deer, elk, bear and trophy game fish. Most vanished, ghostlike, into the trackless forests or crowded docks, but some were cited and will mark the new year with court appearances. Oregon State Police game troopers, spread thin as boarding house soup across the sprawling Alsea hunting district, relied on sharp-eyed landowners and law-abiding hunters and anglers to trigger many of their cases. For example, the citation for Alan Edward Ferguson, 31, of Tidewater started after an alert U.S. Forest Service lawman encountered three subjects field-dressing two bull elk in the Waldport area on Nov. 12. Since one of the elk had not been tagged — the law states a tag must be attached “immediately” after the kill — the officer contacted OSP.

As the Cubs open Oregon West Conference play, the team is going to need to take on that underdog mentality in order to repeat the past season’s success. “We learned that there is a difference between playing average teams and good teams,” Sain said. “You have to maintain some consistency in your performance and we struggled with that in those two games. Marshfield we just played asleep. The Seaside game, there is no excuses, they just beat us.”
