the following points regarding the

It is unlawful to fish from the
jetty or rocks of the ocean within
the 3 mile limit without a license;
also boys over 14 years of age are
required to have a license.

wish to fish or hunt must secure a
Another important item tn the

liable for damage done by protected
game. If deer are damaging your
crops the first step to be taken is to
notify the game warden, and if he
does not respond within a certain
stipulated period, you are at libertay
to shoot said deer.
Anothe good feature of the new
law makes the owner responsible
or the acts of his dog — for in
stance, if a dog escapes and chases
deer and the fact can be proven,
whether the owner is aware of
the fact or not, the owner is
subject to a stiff fine. On the sec
