the State Game and Fish commission,
has made answer as follows to the
article printed in the St. Paul
Pioneer Press and reproduced in the
'The only way we can provide
any hunting for the poor man is
to make game plentiful and any
thing which restricts the shooting
will have that effect,' is the
answer of Carlos Avery, executive
agent of the state game and fish
commission, to the statement made
by Deputy County Auditor James
Drummond that the new law which
makes the season open Sept. 7 in
stead of Sept. 1, hurts the poor man.
The reason given was that Labor
day, which comes on the first Mon
day in September, gave the ordinary
workmgman or clerk a holiday of
two days or three if he counts Satur
day afternoon, which would enable
him to go for a hunting tiip.
"The new law makes the season
open this year the day after Labor
'in the first place, said Avery, it
is unlawful to hunt on Sunday any
way, as hunting is one of the things
prohibited in the Sabboth observ
ance law. But that is not in the
game laws, and we have not consid
ered it our duty to enforce that law.
If it were enforced it would be one
of the greatesr aids in the protection
and increase of game.

Last Friday a real estate transfer
for ducks and chicken presented last
winter made the season open Sept.
15. Representative Mattson intro
duced that bill.
"His idea was that the birds get
stronger by that time, the hot
weather is over and the harvest is
done. In the northern pirt of the
state, where the best hunting is
found, there is often a great deal of
grain standing Sept. 1, and the
hunters do considerable damage
going through the fields.
'Then we learned that North
Dakota had passed a law opening
the season Sept. 7, and the date in
this state was made to correspond,
as it is always desirable to have the
laws of that character uniform with
those of other states.'
"Mr. Avery admitted that the
change would prevent a good many
hunters from enjoping the double
holiday in their favorite sport, but
he thought this would be confined
to the larger cities, and would not
effect the smaller cites and rural
districts where Labor day is not ob
served. He thought that it had not
occured to the committee in the
legislature that the change of date
would spoil a two-day holiday for
many hunters. He tried to figure
out that some years Labor day would
come after the hunting season, but
the best he could figure out was that
about every seventh year the man
who takes the two-day trip will be
allowed to hunt on Monday, but not
on Saturday or Sunday."
