What the Illinois Statutes Have to Say to
Many inquiries are beard at this time
of the year concerning the exact time f ir
tbe killing of certain kinds of game. The
statutes of Illinois have been revised sev
eral times on these points, but are not
explicit nevertheless. A large number
make blind guesses at the dates as set
down by law and kill game at their
pleasure, violating statutees for which
heavy penalties are offered.
The statute declares it unlawful for any
rx.-rsn to hunt, pursue, kill trap or en
snare, or otherwise destroy any wild tur
key between the 15th of January and the
1st of September of each and every year;
or any pinnated grouse or prairie chicken
between the first day of November and
and the 12th dav of September of the
succeeding year; or of any ruffl-d grouse,
qiail. pheasant or partridge between the
1st day of December and the 1st day ot
October of each succeeding year,
or any year; or any gray,
red, fox or black tquirrel between
tbe 15th day of December ani the 1st
day of June of each succeeding year or
any year. It is also unlawful to dettroy
any wild goosa, duck, brant or any other
water fawl at any time between the 15th
day of April and'tbe 15th day of Septem
ber of any year, and these must be killed
in season between sunrise and sunset, and
not at night from any fixed or artificial
ambush. For violation of anv one eif the
above a fin of not less than $5 and not
more than $25 and costs of suit shall be
It is not general y known, but it is a
fact nevertheless, that the statutes make
it unlawful to kill at any time of the year
nearly all kinds of game unless direct
damage is being done by tbem. Tbe
state's attorney Is instructed to prosecute
any person violating tbe game laws ana
all police officials are given the duty of
informing against any supposed offenders.
One-half of the fine imposed goes to the
person filing the complaint in the action
and the remainder to the township school
The statutes for tbe catching of fish
in Illinois ara also violated by a number
of would be fishermen. It is unlawful to
catch fl.sh by other means than by book
or line within one-half mile oi any dam
constructed across any stream in the
state with tbe exception of minnows to
be used for bait. It is alsi unlawful to
use a seine whose meshes are less than
two inches square. Seining however, is
allowed between tbe first of July in each
year and the first day of April the fol
lowing year with seins whose meshes are
not less than two mcnes. Any person
fishing in a stream running through the
land whose owner aoes not giye his con
sent, is liable to arrest for misdemeanor.
and shall be fined not less than iu nor
more than $100 for the first offense.
This fine is liable for violation of the
statutes concerning fishing
