Kimball Graphic: You better keep that little shooting iron carefully tucked away when the ducks and geese begin flying this spring or some deputy United States marshal will get you. The federal law takes precedent over the state law and that same federal law prohibits all spring shooting on migratory birds. While as a general proposition it is pretty safe to ignore the state game laws beause of lack of sufficient wardens, Uncle Sam will chase a man clear around the world for violating one of his game laws — once he gets started.
