All privately owned game birds to be released must be premarked
in a manner prescribed by the Department:
(1) All game birds reared for release upon
hunting preserves shall be identified by a healed toe mark or be marked with a
plastic poultry band or marked by a nasal scar. A nasal scar is a permanent
deformity caused by an anti pecking device. For a healed toe mark, the terminal
joint, including the entire toenail, shall be clipped from the outside of the
right foot of each chick.
the event that an operator acquires birds that have not been marked, they shall
be banded prior to release by the operator with plastic poultry bands or other
bands approved by the Department.
(3) Any wild game bird incidentally taken
upon a hunting preserve at any time other than the general open season
therefore shall be immediately marked with a wild bird seal that has been
issued by the Department. The fee for such seals shall be $16.50 each. Any
unused wild bird seals may be submitted for refund not later than 30 days after
the close of business if a preserve discontinues operation.
(4) Operators shall pay for in advance and
have on hand not less than 10 wild bird seals at all times.
(5) A wild bird seal shall be securely
affixed to any wild bird taken outside the general season or any wild hen
pheasant before it leaves the premises of the hunting preserve.
(6) A record of the date of issue and the
names and address of persons receiving wild bird seals must be maintained by
the operator and available to Department personnel or enforcement officers at
