Sale of furs and animal parts; adoption of regulations. Authorizes the Board of Game and Inland Fisheries (the Board) to adopt regulations allowing the sale of furs or furbearer products. The bill authorizes the Board to adopt regulations providing exemptions to the requirement that a dealer in furs obtain a permit. Current law limits such exemptions to hunters, trappers, fur farmers, and American Indians. The bill also authorizes the Board to allow the possession, manufacture, or sale of parts of, or implements made from parts of, wild birds or animals. Current law provides only for the manufacture or sale of implements from deer skeletal parts or turkey callers from turkey parts, as well as the possession of shed antlers. Read the Bill »
