The spring hunting season for bearded wild turkeys opens statewide on Saturday, and thanks to El Nino, state wildlife managers say conditions are excellent for a superior hunt.The spring season is set to begin after most hens have started nesting and bearded gobblers, having completed their primary roles in the breeding season, are still on the scout."It has been an early spring and I expect the gobbling activity will be early as well," said Steven L. Bittner, forest game project manager for the Department of Natural Resources.

Before the start of the spring turkey season, Department of Natural Resources biologists said they expected a very good season, and, indeed, statistics released by DNR show that hunters in the state set a record.Statistics for the four-week season, which ended a month ago, indicate that 2,440 bearded birds were taken across the state, a 40 percent increase over the 1994 record of 1,744 birds."The success of Maryland's turkey trap and transplant program is directly responsible for this record harvest," said DNR secretary John R. Griffin.

Poly senior Eric Jarkowski is a three-time Baltimore City tennis champion, but this year he decided to go out for the Engineers baseball team. Coach Corey Goodwin said it isn't unusual for seniors to try out for the first time but added that it is unusual for him to keep a senior on as a rookie. "I'm surprised. It's hard to give a senior who is out for the first time a place on the team over a freshman or a sophomore, who you know will be contributing for two or three more years," Goodwin said.

The spring day when Marylanders can start fishing for striped bass in the Chesapeake Bay is anticipated the way kids wait for Christmas and baseball fans yearn to hear "play ball." But on Monday, the fate of this year's striped bass season will be determined by a regulatory board. The 15-member Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission could decide to penalize Maryland for catching too many striped bass in each of the past two years by restricting the state's allocation to a level so low that it, in effect, cancels this season.
