(520 ILCS 5/3.11) (from Ch. 61, par. 3.11)
    Sec. 3.11. Resident fur buyer permits. Any individual who is a resident of this State, who, within this State, receives, collects or buys, or who acts as an agent or broker in the receipt, collection or purchase of the green hides of fur-bearing mammals, protected by this Act, shall be a resident fur buyer in the meaning of this Act. Resident fur buyer's permits shall be issued by the Department. The annual fee for each resident fur buyer's permit shall be $50.00. All resident fur buyer permits shall expire on March 31 of each year. A holder of a valid resident fur buyer permit may buy, sell, possess, transport, and ship the green hides of any legally taken fur-bearing mammals; provided, however, that failure to establish proof of the legality or origin of the green hides of fur-bearing mammals shall be prima facie evidence that such green hides of fur-bearing mammals are contraband within the State of Illinois. Nothing in this Section shall exempt any permittee from complying with any federal laws, rules or regulations which may apply to the green hides of fur-bearing mammals. A person who holds a fur tanner's permit under Section 3.16 of this Code is exempt under this Section if the person is not engaged in the business of receiving green hides for the purpose of buying or selling the hides, whether green, dressed, processed, or tanned and the hides which have been tanned or processed are returned to the person who submitted the hides for processing or tanning.
