VOLUME SIXTY-TWO LENOX, TAYLOR COUNTY, IOWA, THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1936 NUMBER THIRTY Game Management In Iowa Is Explained Outline Plan Whereby Farmer May Protect Wild Life For years the American people have taken wi.:dlife for granted, thinking it only a part of their natural heritage and little less or no thoughit was ;iven it. As a result, due to the ihoughtless destruction of their natural homes, many species of game birds and animals as well as fur-bearing animals, once plentiful in Iowa, have slowly dwindled before the advances of ivilization. In recognition of this, the State Conservation lommission of Iowa has recently adopted a Game Management Program which it is thought will perpetuate all species of wildlife as well as meet with the approval of farmers and sportsmen. The present plan is the outgrowth of the experience gained through operation of the plan adopted by the former Fish and Game Commission, and is designed to overcome the shortcomings of the former plan. To perpetuate game, it is necessary that the things which provide them with food and cover be restored on the land in order that they can propagate under natural conditions. Un_ der the Iowa Game Manage, ment Plan only such lands- as the farmer cannot make use of in his regular agricultural practices are utilized for the purpose of raising game. This can be accomplished by fencing waste areas; allowing the,.shrubs and grasses to grow unburned - and..ungrazed, by .live stock; planting shrubs, trees, and sowing grasses which will provide cover and food in fence corners, barren hillsides, marshes, sloughs and eroded ditches, etc. 1 ; planting food patches at strategic locations near game cover in order that game can get food at all times without unnecessarily exposing themselves to predators and the severe winter weather. In order to speed up this work the Conservation Commission has set up a Game Division under the supervision of a Superintendent of Game and the State has been divided into eight districts of from ten to sixteen counties each, each district being in charge of an Assistant Superintendent of Game, who, together with the Conservation Officers, works with farmers, sportsmen, 4-H Clubs, junior groups, CCC Camps, etc., in improving the environment for wildlife. While game is a product of the land, its presence there is due entirely to the environment that it finds there. It lies within the power of the farmer to have his farm attractive or un. attractive for game. Therefore, it is necessary that any plan of game management first of all must be attractive to the farmer in order that he will be interest, ed in producing an annual game crop and then control the take of game from his farm, seeing that only the surplus is removed and that a sufficient seed stock is left for the next year. In order to encourage and help the farmer in his work, upon application to the Conservation Commission, a representative will check over the farm and make the necesary recommendation to improve it for wildlife of all kinds. The farmer then enters into a cooperative agreement with the Conservation Commission to follow out the game management practices recommended for his farm and to give his written permission to sportsmen to hunt on his land during the open season when a surplus of game is present. If and when the recommended improvements are carried out, the land is posted by the Conservation Commission with game management area signs and a trespass permit book is furnished at no cost to the farmer. When this has been done, the farmer then has control of the unauthorized trespass on his farm as provided in Sec. tion 1709_el, Chapter 86 of the Code of Iowa. Anyone who hunts thereon without authorization violates this section and is punishable by the same fine or imprisonment as provided for any violation of the Conservation Laws. Game management is not merely another scheme to aid the sportsman to kill. It seeks to encourage wildlife of all kinds on the farm; song birds as well as game birds and fur- bearing animals, not only in order that they may be shot or trapped for sport and profit, but that the farmer may real- ise the practical benefits that may be derived from, them, and the sportsman will know when he sees a game management area that a real effort is being made to improve his sport along this line of recreation and that it is his duty to respect the farmer's rights on his farm and to cooperate with him' in perpetuating wildlife for all times. Farmers who are interested in improving the environment for wildlife on their farms, as well as sportsmen who are anxious to improve their own sport by helping their farmer friends build up the game supply on their farms are urged to write the State Conservation Commission, Des Moines, Iowa.
