Hunters Pay $128,000 to State
Oklahoma City, Okla.—That there Is ,
gooil hunting in Oklahoma is shown by j
the fact that 410 men from other sia.-s 1
paid a license of $15 to hunt in Okla-
homa during 1910. This total fades in-
to insignificance beside the other total J
reported by the retiring state gam» j
-warden, Judge Askew, of 116,823 hunt-'
Ming licenses issued to citizens of Okla-
homa. Hut the resident of the state
has to pay but $ 1.25 for his license, and
everybody can afford one.
It is the rather large sum put up by
410 outsiders to shoot around over the
new state that proves the excellent
sport to he afforded here. Most of the
non resident licenses were issued in
the southeastern counties. l>;Flor*
led, and McCurtain and Pushmataha
were close seconds. These big coun-
ties contain most of the real wilder-
ness left in Oklahoma. There is a
tract of about sixty or seventy miles '
either way down there w here railroads
and settlers are scarce and mountain
gorges, woods and water plentiful.
Deer are found in good numbers there;
plenty of turkey roam and an occasion-
al hear Is discovered.
The office of state game warden ha«
been a most successful experiment
from a financial standpoint. The idea
(n making the hunter* pay a hunting
license was twofold; to raise money
to replenish and propagate fish, bird
and game, and to prevent the outof,
state sportsmen from butchering tot*
much Oklahoma game. A third objee*
was to afford a good force of deputy
game wardens for the protection of
game and the fish and game laws.
The earnings of the office last-year
were $128,000, which places the'game
warden next to Jic Insurance commis-
sioner as a revenue producer, with the
secretary of state forced to third po
