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
; 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. These booklets

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
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

More than 300 special deputies. 325
to be exact, are now employed by
the state game department to en

sons. Warden Prochaska left this
morning for northern Arizona to per
sonally institute a drive against game
law violators in that district.
In addition to the state deputies.
the federal forestry department has

Arizona for a period of 60 days to
