MANY DEER TAKEN IN CALIFORNIA THIS SEASON 
"Deer taken during the past hunting season totalled 25,805, 
according to figures tabulated by the bureau of refuges of the 
Division of Fish and Game. This shows an increase of 1,673 more 
than were taken during the season of 1930. 
"Counties in which more than one thousand deer were killed 
include, Mendocino, 1,706; Siskiyou, 1,516; Modoc, 1,486 and 
Humboldt, 1,069. 
"Out of the entire 58 counties in this state only two were 
registered where no deer were taken-San Francisco and Imperial 
counties. Sutter county holds the low record of but one deer 
bagged. Sacramento runs a close second with a grand total of four 
bucks on record. The remainder of the counties range from 10 deer 
on up to well above the thousand mark. 
"Such a successful season reflects not only the'practical 
results of sensible legislation and effective enforcement, but also 
indicates that sportsmen are giving their full support to the pro- 
tection of these big game mammals throughout the year, Division of- 
ficials, said." - San Francisco, Calif.
