OF FISH, OYSTERS AND GAME.
AN ACT Prescribing the Fees for Hunting and Fishing Licenses in the State of Delaware.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met:
Section 1. That every non-resident of this State must obtain a license to hunt game birds or animals in this State, for which he shall pay ten dollars and fifty cents every year to the Board of Game and Fish Commissioners of the State of Delaware.
Section 2. That every fisherman who is a non-resident of this State must obtain a license to fish in the waters of this State other than the Delaware River and Bay, for which he shall pay three dollars and fifty cents every year to the Board of Game and Fish Commissioners of the State of Delaware; provided that the word "fisherman" used in this section shall not be construed to include excursionists on a licensed excursion boat to this State, stopping for not more than three hours. A fee of fifty dollars shall be paid every year to the Board of Game and Fish Commissioners of the State of Delaware for each excursion boat fishing license above prescribed. Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to render immune from arrest and prosecution any non-resident granted nonresident fishing without a license who has come into the State on a licensed boat and who does not in all other respects come strictly within the class above allowed to fish as excursionists on licensed boats.
Section 3. That every resident of this State must obtain a license to hunt game birds or animals in this State, except landlords and tenants and their respective children on their freeholds and leaseholds, respectively, for which license he shall pay one dollar and ten cents every year to the Board of Game and Fish Commissioners of the State of Delaware.
Section 4. That the license provided for in this act shall be in lieu of all charges for gunning or fishing privileges heretofore made and shall authorize their holders to hunt game birds or animals or to fish during the calendar year, i.e., they shall all expire on the thirty-first day of December of the year they are issued.
Section 5. That for the purposes of this act all unnaturalized foreign born residents of this State shall be classed as non-residents of this State, and any person not an alien who has resided a year or more within this State shall be deemed to be a resident of this State.
Section 6. That all acts or parts of acts, in so far as the same are inconsistent with the provisions of this act, be and the same are hereby repealed.
