Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Wildlife Code. Permits the use of handguns during the open season for deer. Provides that any centerfire handguns of .30 caliber or larger with a minimum barrel length of 4 inches may be used. Provides that the only legal ammunition for a centerfire handgun is a cartridge of .30 caliber or larger with a capability of at least 500 foot pounds of energy at the muzzle. Prohibits the use of full metal jacket bullets. Provides that the Department of Natural Resources shall make administrative rules concerning management restrictions applicable to the firearm and bow and arrow season. Effective immediately.

Further amends the Wildlife Code. Provides that game birds may be taken upon a Class B game breeding and hunting preserve area all year. Provides that the license fee for a Class B license may not exceed $200. Provides that a nonresident hunting license to take game birds on a breeding and hunting preserve area shall expire on the same date each year that game breeding and hunting preserve area licenses expire (instead of March 31 of each year). Provides that the register, which a holder of a hunting license to take game birds on a breeding and hunting preserve area is required to keep and submit to the Department of Natural Resources, need not show the number of game birds propagated each year and need only show the month (instead of the date) that game birds were taken or released. Removes the provision that the Department of Natural Resources shall not in any year furnish any licensee of a game bird hunting license a number of tags in excess of the number of game birds which may lawfully be taken from a breeding and hunting preserve area.
