President Roosevelt Approves Open Season With
Drastic Restrictions to Reduce Annual
Kill By KJunters of Nation
15 Duck hunters will have 30 days
lor shootingr thlB fall, but they will
hunt in accordance with the most ri
gid regulations in the history of
America wildfowling. '
W' So says the U: S. Biological Suj
,1by in summarizing new , Migratory
Bird Treaty Act regulations announc
ed by the U. S. Department of Agri
culture. Recommended by the Bio
logical Survey and adopted by R. G
Tugwell as Acting Secretary of Ag
riculture, the regulations ' were ap
proved in a proclamation by Presi
dent Roosevelt on July 80.
The new regulations, says the Bio
logical Survey, are based on the nec
essity of having a net annual increase
left over at the end of the shooting
season until the depleted population
of migratory ' waterfowl is restored
;to normal. This year rigid restric
tions, which follow a period of ap
proximately 35 years during which
the kill each year has excelled the
annual increase from breeding, are
summarized by the Bureau, as fol
lows: Those species which are nearest the
danger point of extinction, such as
canvasbacks and redheads, will be
particularly favored by the elimina
tion of sinkboxes, sneak hoats, and
open-water shooting, practices which
have been the chief methods of tak
ing these species.
"Shooting over baited water or land
which has furnished the heaviest toll
from all species and accounted for
the most consistant full bag limits,
will be prohibited.
Live decoys, one of the most ef
fective methods of luring the migra
tory flocks to the blind, are also rul
ed out. None will be allowed.
Zoning 'of States by seasons will be
eliminated, and there will be only two
zones, northern and southern.
Shooting will be restricted to the
hours between 7 a. m. Some bag li
mits have been reduced. The pos
session of more than one day's bag
has been made illegal.
The 3-shell limit placed on auto
loading and repeating shotguns last
February will take effect for the
first time this fall, and the new reg
ulations provide that hunters may
use a shotgun only, not larger tnan
Regulations Not a Compromise, Says
Adoption of a short hunting sea
son with heavy' restrictions, says the
Biological Survey, was the only al
. ternative to a completely closed sea
son. Though advocated by a con
I siderable body of conservationists,
including leading sportsmen and
sportsmen's organizations, a closed
season was considered ill-advisedr
Reports from Bureau investigators
on, the breeding grounds indicated
thlt the needed net annual increase
would be insured by a short season
with heavy restrictions. Complete
prohibition of shooting thus seemed
unnecessary, and the Bureau knew
that complete prohibition- would be
difficult to enforce. Loss of public
BUDoort of the regulations and a
breakdown of local enforcement
through the cutting off of State ope
rating revenues from the sale - oi
hunting licenses were other obstae
les to a closed season.
There will be violent protests, .the
Bureau expects, from those "Who, be
lieve the season should be closed en
tirely and equally loud i; complaints
from those shootera who believe' the
Biological Survey Is being , over-cautious.
The regulations, says the Bureau,
are not the result of an effort to find
a satisfactory compromise . . between
the two extremes. . The "principles
that dictated the regulations, it is ex
plained, are based on a mathematical
progression toward restoration with
out breaking ' down i existing law
enforcement organizations, . either
State or Federal, by the imposition of

Season To Open October 21
The 80 day shooting season, apply
ing to geese, brant, jacksnipe, and
coot, as well as to ducks, will open
in northern States on October 21 and
will close on November 19. In South
ern States the season will run from
November 20 to December 19.
States in 'the ' northern zone are
Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont,
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Con
necticut, New York (including Long
Island), Pennsylvania, West Virginia,
Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Kan
sas, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Mis
souri, North Dakota, South Dakota,
Nebraska, Montana, Wyoming, Colo
rado, Idaho, Utah Washington, Ore
gon, and Nevada.
The southern zone includes New
Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia,
North Carolina, South Carolina, Geor
gia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi,
Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Lou
isiana, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mex
ico, Arizona, and California.
No open season is allowed ' on
wood ducks, ruddy ducks, bufflehead
ducks, Ross's geese, or swans, and no
shooting of snow geese is permitted
in Flordia or in States north thereof
bordering on the Atlantic Ocean.
The former prohibition of brant
hunting in the East has-been remov
ed. The new regulations place the dai
ly bag limit on ducks at 10 in the ag
gregate of all kinds and make the
possession limit conform to this dai
ly bag limit Changes, says the Bio
logical Survey, reiyresent a reduction
of 2 in the daily bag and of 14 in the
possession limit of the common spec
ies, but extra restrictions on certain
species have been removed.
Bag limits on geese and brant re
main at 4, but the possession limits
have heen cut in half, now conform
ing to the bag limits.
' The bag and possession limits on
other species affected by the regu
lation are as follows: Coot, 15;
jacksnipe, 15; sora, 25; rails (ex
cept sora and coot), 15; woodcock.
4; mourning dove, 20; band-tailed
Hunting Methods Restricted
The prohibition of baiting includ
ed in the new regulations, says the
Bureau, applies to waterfowl and to
mourning doves and provides that
these birds "are not permitted to be
taken with or by aid of corn, wheat,
oats, or other grain or products
thereof, salt or any kind of food by
whomsoever, of for whatsoever pur
pose, placed, deposited, distributed,
scattered, or otherwise put out in any
environment whatsoever, whereby
such waterfowl or doves are lured,
attracted, or enticed to the hunter."
No live decoys may bevused in the
taking of. any species of waterfowl.
The regulation prescribing means
by which migratory game birds may
be taken limits the use of "a blind,
boat or floating craft of any kind"
to locations "not more than 100 feet
from the shore line as determined by
ordinary high tide or, where there is
continuous natural growth or vege
tation extending beyond such shore
line,: not more than : 100 feet from
such growth or vegetation protruding
above the surface of the water at
the time of taking such birds." In
accordance with an exception, how
ever,; scoters, or sea coots, may be
taken 4n coastal: waters without re
ference to the distance limitation.
' This regulation prohibits entirely
the taking of migratory game birds
"from or by aid of an automobile,
airplane, sinkbox (battery), power
boat, sailboat, any loat under sail,
any. floating craft or device of any
kind towed by power boat or sail-
