PAGE TWO Section Two) YEAI AEIV FIELDS WITH THIS GAME WARDEN PROCHASK A PLANS RIGID ENFORCEMENT OF GAME LAWS THIS FALL 325 Special Deputies Have Been Sworn In To Serve Beginning October 1 Heavy Penalty Prescribed Law for Flagrant Violations By ; Mr. Sportsman, beware, watch your tep and toe the mark. Never before in the history of the state have such extensive prepara tions been made for the protection of game as those outlined by State Game Warden Joe Prochaska for the period beginning October 1. -liame laws are to be rigidly en forced " this season," Warden " Pro chaska said, and to this end he has. named hundreds of special" deputie whose sole business it will be to.see that birds and animals are not wan tonly slaughtered by hunters. And as an evidence that ha Intends to back up his statements, Phoe nicians need but refer-Jto news arti cles appearing In recent Issues of local papers,' wherein the arrest of 11 violators on a single day was chronicled. These violators were punished to the full extent of the law, as will be all violators this season, Prochaska has said. Violation of game laws comes high when one con siders that 'he is nobject to a fine of $10 for each lird illegally taken. In other words, if a hunter takes 30 birds illegally, he is subject to a fine of J 300 in the wisdom of the court before whom he is summoned. Of course, the court has sole jurisdiction in the pronouncement of sentence, but Warden Prochaska- has been as sured by many that they will back up his efforts to protect gameby "giving violators, the limit.- . r Prosecution of violators of the game laws wm De pushed in every Instance. Warden Prochaska said re- cently. Ignorance of the law does not excuse, he emphasized, for the game department has prepared, in booklet form, all statutory provisions regarding the protection of game, as well as federal laws.

Here's Just the thing you've been looking and waiting for a hunting map of Arizona. It shows you the location of the most popular hunting retreats of the state, how to reach them and other information that the sportsmen will find valuable In de termining where to gc and how to get there. Although "deer are Quite plentiful over the entire state this year, they are to be found in abundance In the districts shown on the map. The great district lying north of Phoenix and extending from just west or Wickenburg on the west to the east of Payson on the cast holds perhaps per cent of all deer in Arizona. This does not mean that there are not deer in other sections, for State Game Warden Joe Prochaska hss said that they are more plentiful over the entire state his year than he has ever known before. The White mountain region is also quite thickly populated but is not as accessible. There are more than a dozen good routes to this district, but probably the most popular one is the Cave Creek route. The deer district can be reached within a few hours' ride of Phoenix by this route and it is in the section directly to the north of the city where the first deer of the season are generally taken. The Payson country will also be a popular one this fall, the route from Phoenix, of course, taking one over the Apache trail to Koosevelt and thence north east up to Payson. Hundreds will go to that section this fall because of the mountainous nature of the country and the excellent camping facilities provided in the pine forests. The districts shown in the southern part of the state are easily reached from Tucson, Nogales, Bisbee and Douglas and. although they are small in area, contain enough deer to make the hunting interesting. The turkey belt Is confined alto gether to a strip extending from a point northwest of Jerome and con tinuing In a southeasterly direction clear across that section of the state. As the snow flies, the turkey retreat from this district In a southerly di rection, but not T3 any great distance. From Phoenix, the turkey belt is best reached either by Prescott and thence to Jerome over the new Pres-cott-Jerome highway, or over the Apache Trail to Roosevelt and thence northward through Payson. The Prescott-Jerome route will probably be used more this season than the other for roads by that route are in good condition at the present time. The turkey belt is also the bear district, practically all oear lanen In Arizona being caught in the section outlined on the map as the "Turkey Bear" district. While almost Inaccessible, the great country north of the Grand Canyon abounds In deer. Hunters from the . Kingman district get into this country, with some little diffi culty, as do also those from Winslow and Flagstaff. The Automobile roads shown on the map axe the main roads of the state and show in a clear manner how the various districts may be reached. The game refuges are few and can be easily identified.

Warden Prochaska left this morning for northern Arizona to per sonally institute a drive against game law violators in that district.

A trapper's license in addition to the huntincr lisense is required for persons . killing predatory animals. such as mountain lion, bear, wolves. etc., he added. Because of the great number plan ning hunting trips this fall. Game Warden Prochaska has pounded a warning against carelessness. drearer caution should te exer cised hv the huntsman this year than ever before because ct the hundreds of other sportsmen in the field," he said. tew hunting fatalities have oc curred In Arizona in past years and we are anxious to maintain this good record." he continued.
