Every hunter who shoots a deer in the open season, beginning at G a. ni. Mon day, Nov. 0, and ending at Vp. m. Sat urday, Nov. IS. is required by law to report such taking find exhibit the ani mal's head within 4S hours to the near est fish and game warden, or to some person duly deputized by the state tish and game commissioner to receive such reports. When he exhibits the head he should also take along his hunting li cense, to show that he had the right to .hoot the uVer. After a hunter has shot a deer it might be a good idea for him to read that part of section 6120 of the general laws, which says: "A person shall not take more than one such deer during such open season." After he has that part of the law thoroughly fixed in his mind, it would be well for him to read the latter part of section 6o."52. which gives a definition of "take" and "tak ing." lie will find there that "pursuing. and all lesser acts, such as dis turbing, harrying or worrying- " are "taking" under the law. This defini tion which tells in detail just what "tak ing" is, then goes on to say "and shall include every attempt to take and every act of assistance to every other person in taking or attempting to take " After he has finished reading this sec tion of the law he should spend at least 10 minutes in figuring out how much legal right he then has to take his rifle and go out in the woods and help his friend locate and kill a deer. Especially hi should figure out how much right he has to drive deer for his friend to shoot. If he is a wise man and a true sports man he will, after getting his own deer, either take if and go home, or volunteer to "tend camp" and let the others do their own hunting without any assist ance from him.
