     The duties of the fish and game warden, as defined by chapter 15, of the code, are as follows:
     He shall make biennially a report to the governor of his doings, together with such information for the protection of fish and game as he may think proper. He shall make monthly an itemized statement to the executive council under oath of all moneys expended and for what purpose and the number and varieties of fish distributed  and in what waters; also all prosecutions made under the law. He shall have charge of the re-stocking and distribution of fish to the public waters of the state, and shall impartially and equitably distribute the same. He shall faithfully and impartially enforce obedience to the provisions of the fish and game laws. He may suspend for a specified period specified portions of the fish and game laws and issue permits authorizing the person to whom said permit is issued, to take from certain designated lakes of the state, having an area of not less than two square miles, certain fish designated in said permit in any quantities and for all purposes. He shall not permit seining in said lakes between the first day of December and the fifteenth day of June.
     He may grant certificates to proper parties to collect birds, their nests or eggs for scientific purposes. He shall seize and take possession, without warrant, any fish, birds or animals which have been caught, taken or killed, at any time, in any manner or for a purpose or had in possession or under control, or have been shipped contrary to law, and shall sell the same for the purpose of paying any costs, and balance of proceeds, if any, shall be turned into the school fund of the county in which the seizure is made. He shall seize and destroy without warrant or process, any net, seine, trap, contrivance, material, and substance whatever while in use or had and maintained for the purpose of catching, taking, killing, trapping or deceiving any fish, birds or animals contrary to the provisions of the fish and game laws. He may appoint such numbers of deputies as he may deem necessary and their duties are to report all violations of the law, to make arrests where crime is committed in their province, and to aid the warden in the enforcement of the law. The provisions of the laws makes the state fish and game warden a state marshal and it is his duty to ferret out offenders and bring them to justice.
     By an act of the Thirty-third General Assembly, "no person shall hunt, kill or take any wild animal, bird, or game in this state with a gun without first procuring a license."  The fee for such license is one dollar a year for each resident of the state and ten dollars a year for each non-resident. The county auditors of the state issue the licenses. All licenses expire on the first of July of each year. Owners of land, their children and tenants are not required to procure a license to hunt on their own premises. Provision is made in the law for the amount of game that a non-resident may take from the state. Penalties are provided for the enforcement of the law. Another law of the thirty-third general assembly provides for an annual license under certain restrictions for the use of seins and nets in the Mississippi, Missouri, Big Sioux and Des Moines rivers where they form part of the boundary line of the state
