The suggestions \vet-e made by hunters .themselves Ss they appeared at the annual public hearing of tht Arkansas Fish and -Game Cnmmis-,ion here. About 150 persons attended the open meeting.

Continued -shortening of the quail Hinting season also was suggested, or lhe alternative of permitting quail hunting only three days each week the . season was open. Hunters agreod that the quail shortage existed in most section.? of the state. However, several persons from eastern Arkansas claimed there still is plenty of quail in their areas, and recommended the seasoi and bag limits remain unchanged.
