WINNERS OF POWER-AUTHORITY-SPONSORED 'OUTDOOR WRITERS' COMPETITION NAMED

WINNERS OF POWER-AUTHORITY-SPONSORED 'OUTDOOR WRITERS' COMPETITION NAMED
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 2 /PRNewswire/ -- An intrepid gobbler, the impact of an encroaching population on a trapper and a Massena charter-boat captain who's made it easier for physically impaired people to fish were among the prize-winning subjects tonight in the New York State Outdoor Writers Association's ("NYSOWA") annual writing competition.
 Winners of the "Excellence in Craft" awards were announced during the NYSOWA's spring meeting here. The awards -- sponsored by the New York Power Authority -- recognize the best print and broadcast pieces by association members in 1991.
 Each of the first-place winners, selected from five categories, received a hand-carved wooden duck decoy. They were:
 -- Bill Hollister of Valatie, Columbia County, in the magazine-feature category, for "The Punkin Hollow Gobbler," in the May/June issue of "The Conservationist." The feature recounts Hollister's experiences over two spring turkey seasons, including an apparently strange coincidence involving a gobbler that managed to survive the intervening winter despite a gunshot wound.
 -- Bruce E. Matthews of Tully, Onondaga County, in the magazine-column category, for "A Trapper's Dilemma," an October piece appearing in "Trapper & Predator Caller." Matthews' story, based on his personal experiences, captured the potential for conflict between trapper and homeowner as their interests diverge. Matthews also writes for "Great Lakes Fisherman" and "Game and Fish Publications," among others.
 -- James R. Castor of Fairport, Monroe County, in the newspaper-feature group, for "Trapper Charlie," an article in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle about a modern-day Daniel Boone who makes his living as a trapper. The subject was Charlie Miller, who described several hair-raising experiences. Castor writes a daily column for the Democrat and Chronicle.
 -- Fred David of Liverpool, Onondaga County, in the newspaper-column category, for "He Turns Muskies into Magic," an account in the Syracuse Herald-American of a Massena charter-fishing boat captain who's equipped his boat for the disabled. David is the outdoor editor of the Herald- American and the Syracuse Herald-Journal.
 -- Peter Feduccia of Warwick, Orange County, who won for the second time in as many years in the radio/television category. The latest award was for a feature titled "Rattling in Deer," which appeared on Feduccia's nationally syndicated "Woods N' Water" television show. The piece was a how-to account of the antler-rattling hunting method, with emphasis on whitetailed deer.
 A panel of three members of the New England Outdoor Writers Association judged the entries.
 Outdoor Writers Association members cover hunting, fishing and other outdoor subjects for newspapers, magazines and radio and television stations in New York and neighboring states and Canada.
 The Power Authority is the nation's largest non-federal public power organization and New York's largest power supplier, providing about one- quarter of the state's electricity.
