100 years ago: Licenses are the law for rabbit hunters

October 18, 2011


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 18, 1911:

  • "'Every person in the state of Kansas who hunts rabbits must have a license.... or lay himself open to the law.' That was Prof. L. L. Dyche, state fish and game warden, talking this morning to a Journal-World reporter. The big season for hunting rabbits is just at hand, says Prof. Dyche, and although the law for licenses for killing rabbits went into effect last March, there was no urgent necessity for enforcing it until the present time."
  • "Under instructions from the department at Washington the local post office is sending out blanks to every rural route patron ... asking that the name of every member of the family, old and young, be sent in for guidance of the postal employees. No rural directory has been made of the patrons of the Lawrence office for several years and it is badly needed in order that rural mail be delivered promptly and correctly."
