When hunting on cultivated land avoid growing crops and let pools and streams alone. It is unseemly and wrong to interfere with them, and there is a risk of encouraging those who see to set themselves against the law.1 On days on which there is no hunting,2 all hunting tackle should be removed.

1 Both text and meaning are doubtful here. By “the law” is probably meant the law (or custom?) that allowed hunters to hunt over growing crops. See 12.5.

2 i.e., during festivals.
