NEW GAME LAW
Added Protection Is Given Fish and
Gamo License Cost Increased
Mag Limit liowered Shorten
Bii?o lien Season.
(From Friday's Dally.)
9ALEM, Fob. 23. (Special.)
Fish and gamo legislation occupied
n largo placo In tlio deliberations of
tho loglalatlvo session Just closed,
and tbo Important chances effected
la tbo lawB are ot lntoreat to sports
men throughout the stato. Tbo now
fish and gamo codo seems to have
been basod essentially upon protect
ing tho Interests of tbo fish and game
tbomsolvcs rather than that ot tho
sportsmen. Those backing tho codo
utid It passed both bouses with
practically no opposition bcllovo
that strlctprcservatlon ot tlsh and
gamo, In tho long run, Is Just what
sportsmon want. Opportunities' for
big catches and kills may bo reduced
temporarily, but permanent contin
uance of good sport Is thereby as
sured. Angling nnd hunting licenses aro
raised from $1.00 por year to J1.G0.
Tlio now combination llccnso costs
$3.00. Women, as formerly, aro ex
ompt from fishing licenses but they
must Imvo a llconso to hunt.
During 191C tho gamo fund ro
celvod nbout $12,000 less from ll
ccnso sales than In 1915, becauso
many fower licenses vero bought.
Tho increased Incomo will bo de
voted exclusively to trout propaga
tion nnd distribution. LaBt year ap
proximately 8,000,000 trout fry wore
raised. It Is expected to produco
12,000,000 tho coming season, there
by giving an unprecedented Impetus
to tbo betterment ot fishing through
out tho stato.
To Divide Fines.
During tho last two years all tho
fines collected havo gono to tho coun
ties In which thoy woro levied. Tho
now law provides that hereafter thoy
shall bo divided equally between tho
county nnd tho stato. Probably
about $5000 Is Involved In this
chango, and all .of It will bo used for
fish planting, tho commission fooling
thnt Its biggest tnsk is to preservo
and lraprovo angling In Oregon's
Tho bag limit on deer has been
changed from threo to two bucks.
Tho open soason for Enstom Oregon
has boon shortened two weeks. It
now begins on September first nnd
closes October 31. Previously It op
ened August 1C.
Tho limit for trout has been low
orod from 7G to CO for a stnglo day's
catch. Tho dally limit by weight
has boon changed from GO pounds
All wlntor fishing In Eastern Ore
gon has boon forbidden, except for
fish over 18 Inches In length. This
practically prohibits catching any
thing but stcolhuads: In tho past,
catching fish ovor 10 Inches in length
was allowed throughout tho year,
excopt In cortaln specified streams.
Tho law forbidding hunting deer
with dogs has boon stiffened so that
It will bo caslor to got convictions.
This is especially applicable to tho
coast counties of Western Oregon.
Tho opou duck season hereafter
is from October 1 to January 1C,
making tho Orogon law conform with
tho provisions of tho Federal Migra
tory Bird Laws. In tho past tho
season opened November 1 and nom
inally closed Fobruary 15, although
It actually camo to an end January
15, becauso of the conflict with tho
federal law. Tho change thordforo,
means an extra month ot duck shoot
ing. Tho open season on sago hens Is
from August 1 to August 31. Former
ly it opened July 15.
