          41:09:01:02.  Release of male birds required -- Harvest limited. The permittee must release a minimum of 600 male pheasants on each of the permittee's shooting preserves. However, the required minimum release is reduced to 300 male pheasants on each of the permittee's shooting preserves if the permittee has not received a shooting preserve operating permit any time prior to the current permit or no portion of land contained within the current permit has been a part of a previously permitted shooting preserve.


          Only male birds released from August 1 to March 31, inclusive, may be counted toward the required minimum and included on the game release records. A shooting preserve may release hens; however, no such hens released may be shot. Pheasants released must be Chinese ring-necked pheasants. "Jumbo" Chinese ring-necked pheasants may not be released. Turkeys released must be wild turkeys as defined by subdivision 41:06:00.01:02(15). Prior to any harvest, birds of that species must be released on the preserve. At no time following the required releases may a permittee allow the number of wild and released birds harvested to exceed 100 percent of the number of birds which have been released. All birds must be healthy when released.
