To all whom t may concern:
Be it known that I, JOSEPH E. STAMPFLI, a citizen of the United States, residing at Oakland, in the county or Alameda and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hunting- License Holders, of which the following is a specification.
My invention is an improved hunting li-l cense holder.
The object of my invention is to provide a convenient means of carrying the license so that it cannot be lost or mutilated.
Further objects are to provide a holder which is placed in the gun stock, and Which is simple in construction and inexpensive to manufacture.

2O Figure l is a fragmentary longitudinal sectional view of a gun stock with my holder positioned therein.
Figure 2 is an end elevation of the holder case.

Referring more particularly to the draiving, the numeral l indicates a gun stock and 2 the shoulder plate securedto the end thereof. A longitudinal bore 3 is formed in the stock l, and a casing 4 is adapted to fit into said bore. A plate 5 is secured to the open end of the casing 4, and an aperture 6 is formed therein communicating With the casing 4. 'I he plate 5 is countersunk into the end of the stock l and the plate 2 is fastened over it, thus holding the casing 4 securely in position.
An opening 7 is formed in the plate 2 in alignment With the hole 6 in the plate 5.
