STRIGTER LIS FOB
OF GAME ENACTED BY MANY STATES
240 New Game Laws Were Passed by Legislatures of the Various
States in 1915 Nine States Bring Closed Seasons Into Agree
ment With Federal Migratory Bird Law Four States Bar
Aliens Some Novel Features of State Game Laws.
Washington, D. C Moro than 240
new game laws wero enacted during
1916 a larger number than In any pro
vlous year except 1911, according to
Farmers' Hulletln C92, "Gamo Laws
for 1915." Forty-three states hold reg
ular legislative sessions, and in all
of these states except Arizona, Geor
gia and Nebraska somo changes woro
mado In the stututcs protecting gamo.
Tho largest number of now gamo laws
passed In any ono stnto was 01, in
North Carolina; but In California,
Connecticut, Maine, Now Jersey, Oro
gon, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin tho
number reached ten or moro. Sov
oral measures wero vetoed, Including
a general game bill in Idaho, tho tlrst
bill appropriating tho hunting llccnso
fund In Pennsylvania, a bill protecting
bears in California, and throo soctlons
of tho gamo bill In Washington. A
number of bills woro introduced for
tho purpose of harmonizing tho stato
laws on migratory birds with tho fed
eral regulations. In at least nlno
Btatos changes wore mado which
brought tho seasons into substantial
agrcoment, viz.: California, Con
necticut, Maine, Michigan, Now I lamp
shiro, Tcnnessco, and West Virginia.
In Illinois tho seasons for nil migra
tory birds oxcopt coot and waterfowl,
and in Washington for tho smaller
shoro birds, wero mado to conform
with tho regulations undor tho fed
eral law. Uniformity was also so
cured by provisions in tho laws of Con
necticut, Malno, Now Mexico, North
Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin,
prohibiting hunting between sunset
and sunrise. On tho othor hand,
Dclawaro adopted a resolution oppos
ing tho migratory-bird law, and Ohio
and Rhodo leland, which had harmo
nized their seasons in 1911, changed
tho seasons on waterfowl this year.
Aliens Barred Out.
As a result of tho decision of tho
Supremo court of tho United States
on Jnnuary 19, 1914, sustaining tho
alien hunting law of Pennsylvania, leg
islation prohibiting aliens from hunt
ing or owning shotguns or rlllcs wpb
enacted In at least four states Mass
achusetts, Now Jorsoy, North Dakota
and West Virginia, but certain ex
coptions based on property qualifica
tions woro mado in Massachusetts and
Closo seasons extending for several
yearB woro provided for certain kinds
of big gamo and also for gamo birds.
Hunting mountain sheep was suspend
ed in Idaho, Montana and Washington,
and goats woro protected until 1918 In
Montnna. Mooso woro protcctod for
four years In Malno, tho first abso
lute closo seanon on this Bpcclos for
35 years slnco tho suspension of
hunting from 1878 to 1S80. Antolopo
wero given Indollnlto protection In
Now Moxlco, and Oklahoma pralrlo
chlckons wero protected for Bovernl
years. Michigan extended complcto
protection, nlso. to quail, imported
pheasants, grouso, and wood ducks for
Hvo years. Minnesota protectod
doves, woodcock, plover and wood
ducks until 1918. Now Moxico gnvo
protection to pheasants, bobwhltes,
pigeons and swans. Oklnhomn pro
tected doves, grouso, wood ducks nnd
curlow. Several birds wero removed
from tho gamo list and protectod
through tho yoar. Oklahoma gavo
such protection to pollcans, gulls and
borons. Tennesson doclurcd ring
nock pheasants, bullbats, robins and
racadowlarks to bo nongamo birds. In
a fow cases protection waB romoved
from certain species notably tho tur
koy buzzard In Dclawaro, Florida and
North Carolina, owls nnd starlings In
Now Hampshire, and cormorants In
Illinois and North Dakota.

Amonp- tho novel features In thi
laws this year may bo montloned tho
declaration In tho Florida law that
ownership of gamo Is vested In tho
respective counties; tho provision of
tho California law protecting spiko
bucks, or door with unbranchod horns.
Instead of deer with horns of a cer
tain length; and tho Wyoming exDerl-
mont of allowing tho killing of 50
bull mooso under $100 licenses Instead
of an Indollnlto numbor during a lim
ited season. Methods of hunting wero
restricted in Michigan by prohibiting
tho U8o i automobiles In hunting
partridges, nnd In Indiana by pro
hibiting tho uso of searchlights or oth
or artificial lights attached to autos
for hunting gamo on or near a high
way. Several new restrictions on
shipments appeared for tho llrst tlmo:
Illinois prohibited importation from
points outsldo tho stato of any
gamo except door legally killed. Penn
sylvania prohibited shipment of game
by parcel post, nnd Wisconsin, ship
ment undor an nllns. Connecticut au
thorizes tho commissioners of Usher
les nnd gnmo to grant permits to
bring in gamo lawfully killed outsldo
tho Btuto, provided such gamo Is not
offered for sale.
Notwithstanding tho agitation In
fnvc- of protecting qunll for sovornl
years In somo sections, no bills or this
kind woro passod this year, and 39
states still provido quail shooting. Tho
seasons wero shortened six weeks In
