Gallins, eommonly known as wild turkeys, grouse, praitio
partridges, and quail. (Forest and Stream, XXVI, p. 84, Feb. 26, 1W.)
In 1887 the Boone and Crockett Club in its constitution
big game as follows:
Under the head' of American Imp gUW we included the fo4wing
Black and brown bear, grizzly bear, polm beari bu.&19 (bism), maunoda'
woodland caribou, barren-ground caribou, couW, muWm, white. gook 4"
wolf (not coyote), prong-horned antelope, moose, Virginia deer,.mula 46w,,,j
Columbmi black-tailed deer. (Art. IV.)
In 1898 the list was modified by omitting the:wolf.
In 1900 the Biological Survey, udlbdng these

sandpipers, and curlews (Limicolm); 8, wild turkeys. grouwjphsoij.-,,-11
ants, partridges, and quail (Gallinm). (Biol. Survey,
P. ill 1900.)
The extent to which definitions have been incorporated in a
law shows even greater variations. In -the English laws gXW8 0
defined as hares, pheasants, partridges, grouse, heath or imoorgiwo
black game, and bustards" (Game Act, 183 1, sec. 2), while tho toft,
ground game is applied to hares and rabbits (Ground Game Act., -1Wt
W. 8). Game proper thus includes only the Gallinie and the 06dide '44
(bustards). Deer, waterfowl, and shore birds are not indude4-t=4,,,k.-'j
protection of shore birds and wild fowl is provided uMer th*
Birds' Protection Act of 1880.
In Bouvier's Law Dictionary game is defined as "Birds and bow*
of a wild nature obtained by fowling and hunting," and in tb* 40mik,
Of pi* as 11 All kinds of animaIs and birds found in the stoge of

The term game animals shall be construed to inom mDose,

since 1886 the definition of game birds recommended ty the A

especially popular in Alabama, Kentucky,, M-axyland,
North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and
Many of these local laws are comparatively redent, having*
enacted within the last 25 yean. In Tennessee under. the
tion of 1870 and in Texas under the constitution of 1875 ape"
vWons were made permitting local gam legislation. On the
hand, several of the States prohibited local legislation by Ow
tional provisions, notably Pennsylvania mi 1874, Kea6tucky in I
and Alabama in 1901, thus putting an ena to the complexity Of 100
regulations and greatly simphfying the game laws. in these.
Congress M" 1886 adopted a general provision prohibiting.. loml, g$*;
laws in any of the Territories, a prov=*'on incorporated in the
stitutions of the Dakotas, Montana, and possibly one or two
States admitted about that time. Recently both Vivo* and-
nessee repealed most of their local laws and substituted
statutes, and at the present time comparatively few states
on local legislation for the protection of theirgame.
It is interesting to note the gradual adoption of do"
