An Act providing a daily bag limit and a possession limit on wild ducks
and wild geese that are killed, taken or possessed during the open
season and repealing any provision of the law in conflict with this

ducks or wild geese in excess of such limit; providing a penalty and

SECTION 1. It shall be lawful for any person to take, capture
or kill not more than fifteen wild ducks and not more than
four wild geese in any one day and to have in possession not
more than thirty wild ducks and to have in possession not more
than eight wild geese at any one time. All laws or parts of
laws relative to bag limit and possession limit of wild ducks
and wild geese in conflict herewith are hereby repealed.

or kill more than fifteen wild ducks in arv one day and it
shall be unlawful for any person to take or kill more than four
wild geese in any one day. It shall be unlawful for any person

may be taken, killed and possessed.
SEC. 3. Any person violating any of the provisions of this
Act shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction
shall be fined in any sum not less than Ten ($10.00) Dollars
and not more than Two Hundred ($200.00) Dollars, and
each fowl so taken, killed or possessed in violation of this Act
shall constitute a separate offense.
SEC. 4. The fact that Federal regulations governing the taking,
killing and possessing wild ducks and wild geese have been
changed so that the present State laws do not conform with the
Federal regulations creates an emergency and an imperative
necessity that the constitutional rule requiring bills be read on
three several days in each House be and the same is hereby suspended,
so that this Act shall take effect and be in full force
on and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
Approved February 17, 1930.
