The committee offered four bills in all, changing various open seasons for land and water sports and generally rewriting and tightening the state's fish and game laws. Other suggested season shifts are: Quail -- Nov. 15 to Dec. 15 in all open counties (now Nov. 1 to Dec. 1 in most areas.) Clark, Decatur and Wayne to be added to present 12 open season counties.
