ROCK ISLAND, ILL., THURSDAY, NOV. 4, 1937 v DUCK HUNTERS PLEASED WITH LUCK THIS YEAR 'Conditions Are as They Should Be, District Came Inspector Reports. Warren T. Hodgett of Moline, district game inspector, and Fred Lueders, Rock Island county tame warden, reported today that north era Illinois duck hunters alon?the Mississippi waterfront are well satisfied with Hie season and the flight of birds. "They ought to be; I never have een so many ducka in, my ljfe," Mir. Hodgett said. Mr. Hoflgett, who has spent most of this Week along the Mississippi river north of Bur-llnton, Iowa, and south of the trl-citles. reported a tremendous flight of teal, sprigs, widgeon and mal- lards. I must have seen 20,000 mallards," he . remarked. Mr. Hodgett predicted that duck hunting is going to continue to improve on the Mississippi water front of Henderson, j Mercer and Rock. Island counties. Dams being built in the Mississippi will cre ate a 70-mile stretch of ideal duck territory, he saidand added, "We'll have a duck hunting district here equal to Bcardstown." As part of his activity this week, he checked on the Crystal Lake Duck club at Gulfbort. the Cascade club at Carman and the Bennett Is land club at Oquawka. Practically very hunter of those clubs he questioned had taken the limit of ducka without trouble. Perhaps the 11)37 flight of ducks la proving to the duck hunting fra- ternity that drastic federal regula- Hons really are doing the Job. when It comes to bringing back tns nu- gratlory gameblrds, he said. At any rate, Mr. Hodgett said he has been getting better cooperation from hunters than-ever before. Of course, he said, ho and his wardens have had to make arrests, and have had to "lay down theXlaw" to several lowans who were fudging 'on the Illinois hunters by edging across into forbidden territory In cases where evidence of actual shooting in Illinois by lowans was scant, and guilt would have been difflcult to prove in court, offend ers have been dismissed after they naa purcnasea Illinois nou-resiueni licenses (which cost $15.50) in presence- of .the apprehending war den. Also, pre-7 a. m. bombardment in Henderson county has Indicated that there are a fewv "sooners' scattered along the western front, but in general, Mr. Hodgett said, tendency soems to be! to obey the letter and spirit of tha law. Fish Released. Mr. Hodgett's present activities are not confined to enforcing duck hunting regulations, however. Yes terday be supervised the release of ae ui I 20,000 crapples, bass and other gamefish : from the Geneseo hatchery. The fish were "taken to the Sears power dam in Rock Is land The 20,000 young gamefish liberated yesterday represented the third major Testocking release made hereabouts within recent weeks. Some time ago 82,000 fish . seined from backwaters of the Mis sissinnl at Fulton, were placed in the Hennepin canal, and another 82,000 fish, seined trom Sand :ake at Savanna, . recently were placed In Green riven The Hennepin, canal feeder north tof Sterling also has been getting a renewal of its tinny population lately. Tuesday Thomas McCafferty f Spring Grove, superintendent of fish hatcheries in the state, re leased 20.000 bass, crappies and hluegills in the feeder; These fish also were from the Geneseo batch- ry. Efforts of state game wardens to fcnforce duck hunting regulations in Illinois are being supplemented by activities of federal men. Yesterday Harry Barmeler, federal game management agent announced he had closed the Gtllead's Slough Hunting and Fishing club shooting grounds on the Mississippi river near Hardin for the remainder of the current season. Bafrriier said he and Jesse F. Thompson, Iowa game management agent, visited the club Tuesday and found mem bers and their guests had used live decoys and had baited the river banks with corn.
