Migratory Game Bird Legislative Amendment

Postby feathhd » Tue Apr 02, 2013 8:08 pm

Just letting you all know that WE have a Bill that would amend the
state code ( 484 A ) to include the words Mourning Dove into the
Definition of what is considered A Migratory Game Bird.
Right now the
list reads, rail, woodcock,snipe, Geese, brant or duck but does not
include Mourning Dove.
This must be changed so as to clearly list
Mourning doves as a Migratory Game Bird. Closing the last loop hole to
fend off future attacks made against Iowa sportsmen and Dove Hunting
itself.


Please Show your Support and contact your House of Representative
Member today and ask that they Support and become a Co Sponsor to,
Sponsor Representative Chris Halls, State Migratory Game Bird Bill /
Amendment.


( The Bill Reads as drafted:

1 An act requiring payment of the migratory game bird fee before
2 hunting mourning doves, and providing a penalty.
3 BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF IOWA

1 Section 1. Section 484A.1, subsection 2, Code 2013, is
2 amended to read as follows:
3 2. " Migratory Game Bird "means any wild goose, brant, wild
4 duck, snipe, rail,woodcock, MOURNING DOVE or coot.
5 Explanation
6 This Bill requires a person to pay the migratory game bird
7 fee of $10 before hunting mourning doves. A violation of this
8 provision is punishable as a scheduled violation with a fine
9 of $10 or as a simple misdemeanor. A simple misdemeanor is
10 punishable by confinement for no more than 30 days or a fine of
11 at least $65 but not more than $625 or both. )


I may have more details later this week as I speak with House members
but you can lend a hand and encourage your House Members to Support the
measure. Please advise me of any Response letters you obtain from your
House Representatives. Again I wish to say thanks to all of you for
your years of Support on Conservation issues. To find your Iowa House
