It does not seem so very long ago since we shot thicks without a license. legis- lature has met meantime, and the Alberta law-makers have'iutt it down as imperative, that, besides being able to .shoot, which Is merely Inci- jdental, we must also have a license, in order to kill ducks in future. Don't forget the he very embarassing, just as you were about to bombard a likely looking flock with a double-barreled' "dispenser of buckshot, a Mounted Policeman should itoi> un and ask-you for the license that you didn't get.
