    Chapter 3: License for hunting, fishing or trapping; penalty; exemptions.

      Section: 23:3-32: Pheasants, partridge, quail; killing, shipping, commercial shooting preserve license, conditions

           23:3-32. No pheasants, partridge or quail propagated in a semiwild state shall be sold. No such pheasants, partridge or quail shall be taken, possessed or transported unless each bird shall have been tagged with the special tag prescribed by R.S.23:3-28 to 23:3-39. No licensee raising pheasants, partridge or quail in a semiwild state shall procure from the division during any year of operation more tags to be affixed to the dead bodies of pheasants, partridge or quail propagated in a semiwild state than the number of pheasants, partridge or quail to be liberated, between November 1 and February 28. The tags shall be of a special kind provided for the purpose and shall be allocated by species and number of game birds liberated. The number of birds taken in any year, either alive or dead, on lands on which pheasants, partridge or quail are propagated in a semiwild state shall not exceed the number of tags obtained for each species from the division. Pheasants, quail and partridge propagated in a semiwild state may be taken by shooting only from 9:00 a.m. on November 10 or such opening date as may otherwise be prescribed by the State Fish and Game Code, to February 28 of the following year, unless otherwise prescribed by such code. R.S.23:4-24 relating to hunting on Sunday shall not apply to any person authorized to shoot pheasants, quail, and partridge under R.S.23:3-28 to 23:3-39. No pheasants, partridge or quail propagated in a semiwild state shall be trapped without the written permission of the division.

Under a "commercial pheasant, mallard, quail and partridge-shooting preserve" license, pheasants, mallard, quail and partridge may be taken by shooting only on lands described in the application and license, without regard to sex and daily bag limit, by fully licensed hunters authorized by the licensee to shoot on the land between September 1 and the following May 1, both dates inclusive and during any further period, not exceeding 31 days, which the commissioner may, from time to time, designate for that purpose upon the recommendation of the Director of the Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife.

No pheasants, mallard, quail or partridge shall be taken, possessed or transported, unless each bird shall have been tagged with a suitable tag or seal supplied by the division, and no licensee shall receive from the division, during any year of operation, more tags to be affixed to the bodies of pheasants, mallard, quail and partridge than one tag for each pheasant, mallard, quail and partridge liberated during the shooting period hereinbefore specified.
