Maryland can truly be termed the ' Hunters' Paradise "

The State Game Department, which administers our laws through
a number of game districts, has been built up entirely since 1918 Its
receipts are all dedicated by law to the support of tin department and
to game purposes, so that the work does not cost tile general treasury

The State either owns or leases 33,303 acres of land for game
refuges, and these are located in the various counties, of the State, with
the State game faun, comprising nearly three hundred acres, being lo
cated at Gwynnbrook in Baltimore County since 1919 183224 pieces
of game have been distributed for propagation purposes On the State
game faun there is a propagation plant for bob white quail

The first public shooting ground in Maryland was opened on No
vember 10, 1928, on a 600 acre tract along the boundary line between
Washington and Allegany Counties

In 1926 all fish pots and dams were removed. from the Potomac
River and its tributaries, thus preventing pollution and giving the fish
free access up and down these waters

The Department does a good deal of educational work, in order to
teach conservation to the people. It publishes, quarterly, the Maryland
Conservationist, which goes into every State of the Union and into all
the Provinces of Canada In 1927, through the co operation of the Na
tional Association of Audobon Societies, a lecture course on our natural
resources was given to the school children in the various counties of
the State Important bulletins are issued from time to time by the
State Game Warden.
