Now I dont know or think any of you guys were hunting back in the 40s or 50s I may be wrong, but geez could you of stopped molesting the swans so much. :eek: :biggrin:

You collect neat old stuff too eh? What's the other one 1937?
I don't recall a problem with swans, but I didn't live in the Okanagan at that time. I suppose back then just about anything that wasn't legal was done.
Kinda like today - maybe a guy should save some "No Smoking" signs for the grandchildren or hunting regulations. Would be neat to hear them say "You
smoked and hunted?"

Yea the sign beside its just a reproduction new tin sign but still looks neat. I also got the waterfowl hunting regulations for 1947 and did the same frame as the swan one. That ones pretty neat too, all the different bag limits, longer brant seasons, cant shoot woodies, 7 ducks a day, 100 total a season, alot easiler to understand then todays regs.

One of my all time favourite duckin signs is at "the unit" at Long Point (Ontario), huge sign that says DON'T SHOOT THE BIG WHITE BIRDS! refering to swans and then shows a Swan compared to a snow, canada and mallard
