(MCL 324.101 to 324.90106) by adding section 43525c.

 

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN ENACT:

 

     Sec. 43525c. (1) An individual shall not hunt pheasants

 

without a current annual pheasant hunting license issued by this

 

state. The annual license requirement is in addition to the

 

requirements for a base license. The fee for the pheasant hunting

 

license is $25.00.

 

     (2) If issued as a stamp, a pheasant hunting license must be

 

affixed to the base license of the individual and signed across the

 

face of the stamp by the individual to whom it is issued.

 

     (3) A collector may purchase a pheasant hunting license, if it

 

is issued as a stamp, without being required to place it on a base


license, sign across its face, or provide proof of competency under

 

section 43520(2). However, a license described in this subsection

 

is not valid for hunting pheasants.

 

     (4) From the fee collected for each pheasant hunting license,

 

the department shall use the money to acquire, restore, or enhance

 

lands to be managed for the benefit of pheasants, and to release

 

live pheasants on lands managed for the benefit of pheasants.
