shoot pickerel, and take wild animals or wild birds therein subject to the

provisions of this part.

(b) A

the provisions of this part, except if the lands are posted under provisions

other than section 4710 of this title.

captive hunt facility from the permitting requirements adopted under the rules

of the Fish and Wildlife Board; or

(2) without a

possess, or fence any animal for the purpose of taking or attempting to take

the animal by hunting. (Added 1961, No. 119, § 1, eff. May 9, 1961; amended
