The simple answer is that I have been trying to resolve a problem. Once I took over my new job on February 1 several of the writers from around the state felt that I had an unfair ad- vantage and would scoop them with inside information. Reacting to the criticism and not wanting to do anything to harm the Fish and Game Department, I stopped writing for all the papers in the state that had carried my material.

BOARD OUTLAWS COMMERCIAL BEAR HUNTING Meeting in Montpelier Wednesday the Vermont Fish and Game Board took action to outlaw the commercial hunting of black bear. The regulation as given preliminary approval states: A person shall not advertise, barter, exchange, expose or otherwise sell the use of a dog or dogs for the purpose of taking any black bear. A person shall not hire, barter, exchange or buy the use of a dog or dogs for the purpose of taking any black bear. narrowly eluded him in the ranked as a favorite in the Jean-Paul Cabana and the A person who takes a black hear during the open season past.

As I reported here in a previous column the Board met in January and decided not to outlaw transmitter collars and to try to stop commercial hunting some other way. All the houndsmen who spoke at the meeting were in favor of the change as they want to protect the bear from over exploitation. In other action the Board gave final approval to the 1982 turkey seasons that I reported in January. The action ex- pands the hunting zones and adds eight days to the spring season. The spring season will be May 8 through May 31. The fall season will be sixteen consecutive days beginning 21 days prior to the firearm season for deer. The Board then acted on a long list of minor changes in the fishing regulations that had been passed a year ago, but never properly advertised. The only change that may spark much controversy is the reduction in tip-ups on inland waters from eight to five. This had also been passed once before, but not properly sent through the required procedures. The reduction was done to protect the salmoniod and northern pike fisheries from over harvesting. Be sure that you read the 1983 Digest before going fishing so that the changes, although minor, will not catch you by surprise.

An agreement was reached with participation from the Boston and Maine Cor- poration, members of the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association, the Bureau of Off Highway Vehicles of D.R.E.D., and the Railroad Division of the Department of Public Works and Highways. Permission was granted for snowmobile use on ten sec- tions of currently unused B&M rights-of-ways. Commissioner Gilman cited the cooperative attitude of the B&M officials, and stated that the agreement "represents a significant breakthrough in the effort to develop a statewide trail system for snowmobiles." Gilman went on to say that "any recreational trail development in the State becomes complicated because Tdeservice offered LITTLETON-- Tel=service is a special telephone service which can be used whenever a person has, any questions or problems concerning Social Security.

Bureau Chief Doug Eoute cautioned that "snowmobilers must remember that it is against the law to operate within "the right-of-way of any railroad where the rails are intact except where otherwise posted." The agreement states that railroad rights-of-ways open to snowmobiling must be posted. State law provides a maximum penalty of one year in jail, and a $1,000 fine if convicted of operating illegally on a closed right-of- way. "Law enforcement officials will allow no second chances should a snowmobile be caught on non-posted rail rights-of-ways," said Eoute. "Patrols of active rail lines will be increased as a result of this agreement." Russ Hardy, President of N.H.S.A., commented on the agreement, "if you abuse it, you lose it." Rail lines that are presently posted and open to use are: (1) Portsmouth Branch- crossing west of Rockingham Junction, west to and in- cluding Auburn. (2) Fremont Branch -- Fremont to Epping (3) Conway Branch in the Towns of Tamworth, Madison, and north to the 16 crossing in Conway. (4) Goffstown Branch in the Town of Goffstown. (5) Manchester and Lawrence Branch from Kendall Pond Road, Derry, south to and including Win- dham, N.H.
