Mr. A. C. Griffen, Pierre, So Dak.
My Dear Sir:- I am pleased to receive yours of Jan. 25th concerning the bill prohibiting the spring shooting of ducks, etc. I have referred your letter to the committee on game laws here at the Nebraska legislature through the Chief Deputy Game Warden, with whom I had a conversation on the subject this morning. He will very likely write regarding the matter and give you an idea of how the present legislature feels concerning game protection.
I might add that the sentiment is quite strong, in the committee at least for prohibiting entirely the sale of all kinds of game. Should this become a law, of course it ould do much towards the restriction of game slaughter. There is also a sentiment extant favoring the reduction of the number of birds to be killed each day. Yours very truly,
