Weaver said the sheep were cap- tured with nets, tranquilized and ferried by helicopter to a base camp. They were processed there and loaded into horse trailers for the drive to the release sites. The sheep all came from the Mt. Baxter herd, near Independence, lnyo County. The U.S. Forest Service, which owns the land where the capture took place, assisted in the operation. Ten sheep, lured to a drop net baited with fermented apple pulp and alfalfa, were captured March 27 and released later in the day at your already ed on either the 1040 form or the 1040A short form. It can also be used to add information not in- cluded on the original tax return. For example, the Fresno Internal Revenue Service Center has notic- ed that a number of ta.xpayers who qualify fo~ the Earned Income Credit have not claimed the amount due them. The Center sends a notice to those taxpayers who appear to qualify, asking if they want to receive the up to $500 credil. Taxpayers who simply ne- glected to claim the amount, or who did not know the credit ex- isted can file a 1040X claiming the credit and receive the refund. Copies of form 1040X and the instructions for completing the form are available from most of- fices of the Internal Revenue Ser- vice. Taxpayers can also obtain the form and instructions by calling the telephone number listed in their telephone directory under "United States Government, Inter- nal Revenue Service, Forms order- ing." Assistance in filling out the form is available from most IRS offices. One caution to taxpayers: some items on your original form can not be changed after the April 15 filing deadline. Contact the IRS for details on these specific items. Generally, however, you should wait at least six to eight weeks after filing your original tax return, if you have arefund coming, before you send in a 1040X amendingthat return. If you don't expect a re- fund as a result of your original return wait until after July 1, 1980, and then file your amended return. This allows the Service Center to process your original return before your amended return is received. Wheeler Ridge, Weaver said. The bighorn, one young ram and nine ewes of varying ages, will join ap- proximately 10 sheep already at the Wheeler Ridge site from a transfer operation one year ago. On March 28, a helicopter suc- cessfully herded 21 bighorn sheep into drive nets. Ten sheep, in- cluding two adult rams, were taken approximately 400 miles north to the Warner Mountains, where they were released. They join four bighorn sheep which were moved there from the Lava Beds National Monument in February. Six other sheep succumbed to stress in that move, a loss which prompted DFG to modify its corraling and handl- ing procedures. The other 11 eastern Sierra sheep, four adult rams and seven ewes, were released at Lubl in Creek, where California bighorn once ranged before conflicts with civilization began decimating the population. Some sheep from each of the three groiaps Were fitted with radio telemetry collars so biologists can follow the progress of the animals. With the release at Lubkin Creek, there are now six herds of Califor.nia bighorn in the state. At one time they ranged throughout the Siena Nevada from Tulare County to Sonora Pass. Now there are California bighorn at Lubkin Creek, Mt. Baxter, WheelerRidge, the Warner Mountains, Lava Beds National Monument and Mt. Williamson, south of the Mt. Bax- ter site. The California bighorn is one of the three subspecies of bighorn found in California. Others are the Nelson bighorn, which ranges in the desert mountains, and the peninsular, found in the moun- tains from. Palm Springs south to Mexico. Current estimates place the bighorn populations in the state at approximately 4,000 animals, in- cluding 2,600 Nelsons, at least 1,100 peninsulars and about 250 California bighorn. All bighorn have been fully pro- tected by state law since 1873. Competition with domestic sheep for grazing land and the introduc- tion of diseases by these sheep are believed to have been major reasons for their decline. As recently as 1947, five herds of California bighorn were identified in the Sierra. In 1972, the Califor- nia arid peninsular bighorn were included on the original list of rare California species adopted by the Fish and Game Commission. ,, ICE LUNCH MEATS , COLD DRINKS BEER & WINE SANDWICHES (HOT & COLD) .

It's the squid, answers staff writer Dave Dick in an article in the current issue of "Outdoor California" that focuses on the market squid. Along with the story is a squib on Stillman Berry, who named and described the market squid. The creature is used as bait by California ocean fishermen and for food by foreigners and adven- turous Americans. It is also prey for a host of fishes, birds and mammals. Also included in the March- April issue of the bimonthly magazine of the Department of Fish and Game are pieces contain- ing hints for surviving in the California desert; describing how changes in regulations are improv- ing logging practices to protect fish and wildlife; and updating state sport fishing records. The 33-page issue, now in the mail, features part 3 of the four- part series on trapping - this deal- ing with methods and safeguards -by trapping authority George Seymour. Another article explains how California's " Nongame Wildlife Conservation Program continues to be benefited by donations of cash and other assistance. Featured in Seymour's wildlife leaflet is the largemouth bass. Art work is by Paul B. Johnson. Other articles warn of the possibility of snakebite with the onset of spring, discuss rabies and wild pets and report results of the 1980-81 duck stamp art contest. The magazine's lead article is concerned with a landmark agree- ment under which the DFG receiv- ed $8 million and 5,500 acres of land in southern California in mitigation for wildlife values lost through construction of the State Water Project. In the back of the book, along with letters to editor Doug Camp- bell and a book review, is singer Dionne Warwick's recipe for al- mond-grape trout, as presented by game gourmet Chef Quin.
