That Section 36-2204, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby 10 amended to read as follows: 11 36-2204. BOUNDARIES. The exterior boundaries of such shooting preserve 12 shall be clearly defined and posted with appropriate signs erected around the 13 perimeter at intervals of one hundred fifty (150) feet or less if unfenced 14 unless specified otherwise by commission rule. If the boundary of the shooting 15 preserve is fenced, such signs must be posted at intervals of not more than 16 five hundred (500) feet unless specified otherwise by commission rule. 17 SECTION 2. That Section 36-2205, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby 18 amended to read as follows: 19 36-2205. GAME BIRDS. (a) Game which may be hunted under this act shall be 20 confined to artificially propagated upland game birds. 21 (b) A minimum release of two hundred (200) upland game birds of each spe- 22 cies to be hunted on each shooting preserve must be made on the licensed area 23 during the shooting preserve season. 24 (c) Artificially propagated upland game birds released on a shooting pre- 25 serve must be: 26 (1) Marked by clipping the terminal joint of a single toe on either foot 27 as evidenced by a healed scar; or 28 (2) Banded with a leg band of a type not removable without breaking or 29 mutilating, such tag to be supplied by the fish and game department at 30 cost. One (1) such band shall be securely affixed to one (1) leg of each 31 bird released and shall remain affixed on the bird until the bird is pre- 32 pared for consumption; or 33 (3) Marked in a manner specified by commission rule. 34 (d) Any wild upland game bird incidentally taken upon a shooting pre- 35 serve, at any time other than the general open season therefor, must be marked 36 then and there with a tag that has been issued to the shooting preserve licen- 37 see by the Idaho fish and game department. Said bird shall count as part of 38 the permittee's shooting preserve limit. The fee for such tags shall be as 39 specified in section 36-416, Idaho Code, per bird. 40 During the general hunting season for the taking of upland game birds, all 41 wild birds harvested on shooting preserves will be subject to the laws appli- 2 1 cable to such wild birds and related rules and proclamations of the Idaho fish 2 and game commission.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 13535 This bill would authorize the Idaho Fish and Game Commission to specify signing requirements for shooting preserves by administrative rule. The Commission and Department have been contacted by several shooting preserve operators who would like to discuss different methods of signing. However, the Commission and Department are unable to address these requests because the required signing is set by statute. This bill would allow the Commission to address the concerns of the shooting preserve operators. If the Commission does not adopt new signing requirements by rule, then the requirements set by statute will remain in effect. This bill also proposes that the Idaho Fish and Game Commission be authorized to adopt by rule additional methods for the marking of artificially propagated upland game birds for use at licensed shooting preserves. The statute currently specifies two alternative methods for the marking of such birds. Several shooting preserve operators have contacted the Commission and Department concerning additional alternative marking methods for birds to be released at their licensed facilities. This bill will authorize the Commission to adopt additional acceptable bird marking methods by rule. FISCAL IMPACT None.
