                                             I understand that the Sportingrms
& Ammunition 
                        Company's Institute is to undertake a national esirvey
of the game 
                        resources of this country. I have a matter I would
like to bring 
                        before them and not having the address of their New
York office, 
                        I am taking the liberty of writing to you direct.
You will perhaps 
                        remember me as a former officer of the American Game
Protective 
                        Association. 
 
                                            We wish to undertake a survey
of the fish and 
game resources of the State of New Hampshire, paying particular attention
to their euon~ule 
value to the State as a whole. In other words, we are trying to get this
fish and game 
administration up here on a business basis, and it can never reach that point
until it is 
recognized as an economic resource of the State. It is certainly, at least
so far as this 
State is concerned, one of our most valuable assets. Unfortunately the New
Hampshire 
Division of the Izaak Walton League has as yet no funds with which to carry
on such an 
investigation; the New Harpshire Fish & Game Department gains its whole
income from 
licenses and fines, and it therefore has no funds to undertake such an investigation;

it would be impossible to get an appropriation from a legislature which is
not yet aware 
of the true value of this fish and game; and the New Hampshire section of
the New Fngland 
Council, which is very much interested in the subject has no funds either.
I have been 
wondering, therefore, if it would be possible for the Sporting Arms &
Ammunition Manufacturers 
Institute to undertake, in the near future, a survey of our fish and game
resources up here 
in collaboration with the New Hampshire Division of the Izaak Walton League,
the Fish & 
Game Department and possibly the U. S. Bureau of Biological Survey. Will
you give me your 
reaction to this suggestion and if you think it feasible will you bring the
matter to the 
attention of the Sporting Arms & Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute?

 
                                             What we really want to find
out here is what we 
 have in the way of fish and game resources so that we can start with that
knowledge to 
 build them to a peak where they will not only furnish the maximum sport
to our own people 
 but where we will also have a sufficient supply to bring in an increased
number of out-of- 
 State sportsmen. 
 
                                            Very oncerely yours, 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                Secretary, New Hampshire
Division.
