Meets brusque dismissal May Herald clash action line migratory Bird Hunting keep the plug in the gun with today marking the beginning of Duck season in Arkansas Many sportsmen May or May not be aware that a Hunting regulation change adopted this past summer by the state game and fish commission does not apply to migratory waterfowl under the Protection of the Federal government. At one of their summer sessions the members of the commission agreed to abolish a regulation which required sportsmen Hunting some types of game to plug their shotguns so that the Magazine would hold no More than three shells. This change was duly reported in a National Hunting and fishing publication which not Only agreed with the commis by Webb Laseter Sion a stand but also praised the members for their action. Several area sportsmen who read the article have asked action line to explain More fully just How the new regulation applies to Hunters. R. A. Nelson a Blytheville businessman who is a member of the commission said a abolition of the old three Shell Law applies Only at the state level and not the Federal. A Federal regulations relative to the Hunting of doves ducks geese and All other migratory waterfowl stand As they always have and Hunters should keep their plugs in their shotguns when Hunting these game Birds a he emphasized. A the new state Law permits Arkansas sportsmen to Hunt Iii a staff writer Quail Turkey rabbits Coon and the like without a plug a Nelson added.

Of course some Are around and they Are still vicious a he commented. On reason for the decline of the Market Hunter Are the numerous Federal and state Hunting rules and regulations establishing the number of fowl which May be taken and the seasons when they May be hunted. This Nelson said is sufficient to preserve game Birds and eliminates the need for the old three Shell Law therefore it was abolished in Arkansas.
