Regulation 8.-Permits to Propagate Migratory Waterfowl

1. A person in possession of a valid, subsisting permit issued to him by .a
State, on its part, authorizing him to take therein migratory waterfowl or
their eggs for propagating purposes, may take such birds or their eggs in such
State for such purposes when authorized by a permit issued to him by the
Secretary, which permit may limit the species and numbers of birds or eggs'
that may be taken and the period during which and the locality where they.
may be taken. Both permits shall be carried on the person of the permitted
when he is taking migratory waterfowl or their eggs and shall be exhibited"
to any person requesting to see them. Waterfowl and their eggs so taken may
be possessed by the permitted and may be sold and transported by him for
propagating purposes to any person holding a permit issued by the Secretary3
in accordance with the provisions of this regulation.
2. A person in possession of a valid, subsisting permit issued to him by a
State, on its part, authorizing him to possess, purchase, sell, and transport.
migratory waterfowl and their increase and eggs for propagating purposes,
may possess, purchase, sell, and transport such waterfowl and their increase
and eggs for such purposes when authorized by a permit issued to him by the
Secretary; but may not purchase or sell to any person not authorized by these
regulations or by a permit issued thereunder to sell or purchase such water-,
fowl and their eggs; and migratory waterfowl, except the birds taken under
paragraph 1 of this regulation, so possessed may be killed by him at any time
and in any manner (except that they may be killed by shooting only during
the open season for waterfowl in the State where killed), and the carcasses,.
with heads and feet attached thereto, may be sold and transported by him to
any person for actual consumption, or to the keeper of a hotel, restaurant, or
boarding house, a dealer in meat or game, or a club, for sale or service to
their patrons, who may possess such carcasses for actual consumption without-
a permit, but no such birds that have been killed shall be bartered, sold, or
purchased unless each bird before attaining the age of 4 weeks shall have had
removed from the web of one foot a portion thereof in the form of a V large
enough to make a permanent, well-defined mark, which shall be sufficient to
identify it as a bird raised in domestication under a permit.
3. Applications for permits shall be addressed to the Secretary of Agricul-
ture, Washington, D. C., and must state the name and address of the applicant;
the place where the propagating project is to be carried on; the area to be
used in the project; the facilities the applicant has for properly caring for
the waterfowl; the number of each species of waterfowl in his possession, and
how, when, and where they were acquired; and, if the application is for a

but no such birds, nests, or eggs shall be taken without a permit or purchased
from, sold to, or exchanged with a person not authorized by these regulations
or by a permit issued thereunder to sell, purchase, or exchange them. The
plumage and skins of migratory game birds legally taken may be possessed
and transported by a person without a permit.
4. A taxidermist, when authorized by a permit issued by the Secretary, may
possess any migratory bird, or nest or egg thereof delivered to him for mount-

privilege a valid, subsisting permit of equivalent tenor issued to him by the
State in which he proposes to operate. No permit issued by the Secretary
authorizes the transportation of any migratory bird, or part, nest, or egg
thereof from Mexico into the United States unless such bird, or part, nest, or
egg is accompanied by a Mexican export permit. Permits are not trans-
ferable 4and are revocable at any time in the discretion of the Secretary.

Regulation 10.-Permits to Kill Migratory Birds Injurious to Property

Community injury.-When information is furnished the Secretary that any
species of migratory bird has become, under extraordinary conditions, seriously
injurious to agriculture or other interests in any particular community, kn
investigation will be made to determine the nature and extent of the injury,
whether the birds alleged to be doing the damage should be killed, and, if so,
during what times and by what means. Upon his determination an appropriate
order will be made.
Specific injury.-Upon receipt by the Chief of the Bureau, or the regional
director of the Bureau of Biological Survey in the region where the injury
occurs, of information from the owner, tenant, or share cropper that migratory
birds are injuring his crops or other property on the land on which he resides,
together with a statement of the location of the land, the nature of the crops
or property being injured, the extent of such injury, and the particular species
of birds committing the injury, an investigation will be made and if it is
determined from such investigation that the injury complained of is substantial
and can be abated only by killing the birds, or so many thereof as may be
necessary, a permit to kill the birds will be issued by said Chief of the Bureau
or Director, in which permit will be specified the time during which, the means

and methods by which, and the person or persons by whom the birds may be
killed, and the disposition to be made of the birds so killed, and such other
restrictions as may be deemed necessary and appropriate in the circumstances
of the particular case: Provided, however, That in every permit issued as afore-
said, it shall be specified that no such birds shall be shot at or killed at any
time or in any manner not authorized by the laws of the State in which such
permit is effective; and as to migratory waterfowl, that they shall not be shot at
or killed (1) from any blind, sink, pit, or any other device or means of conceal-
ment, whether natural or artificial, movable or stationary, or on land or water;
(2) by means of any gun larger than No. 10 gage, or of any gun to which a
silencer has been attached or otherwise affixed; and (3) by the use of decoys

shall submit promptly, on a form provided by the Bureau for the purpose, a
report correctly stating the species and number of each species of migratory
birds killed by him and in any event shall submit such report to the regional
director on or before January 10 of each year. Failure to submit a report as
required by this regulation will be sufficient cause for revocation of any permit
or withdrawal of any privilege accorded any person failing to make the report.

Regulation 11.-State Laws for the Protection of Migratory Birds

Nothing in these regulations or in nny permit issued thereunder shall be
construed to permit the taking, possession, sale, purchase, or transportation
of migratory birds, or parts, nests, or eggs thereof, contrary to the laws and
regulations of any State or Territory, or the District of Coluimbia, made for
the purpose of giving further protection to migratory birds, their nests, and
eggs when such laws and regulations are not inconsistent with the conventions
between the United States and any other country for the protection of migra-
tory birds or with the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and do not extend the
open seasons for such birds beyond the dates prescribed by these regulations.

Regulation 12.-Transportation of Game Mammals to and from Mexico

Game mammals, parts or products thereof, taken in and transported from
a State, Territory, or the District of Columbia may be transported to Mexico,
if the importation thereof is not prohibited by law or regulation of that country,
upon presentation to the collector of customs at the port of exit of the certificate
of an official, warden, or other officer of the game department of such State,
Territory, or District, that such game mammals, or parts or products thereof,
which must be listed in the certificate, were taken or acquired, and are being
transported in compliance with the laws and regulations of such State, Territory,
or District.
Live game mammals authorized by a special permit issued by the Secretary
of Agriculture, pursuant to section 241 of the Penal Code, to be imported,
and the dead bodies, parts, or products of game mammals, proceeding from
Mexico, if accompanied by a Mexican export permit, may be transported into
the United States, but their possession in any State, Territory, or the District
of Columbia will be subject to the laws of such State, Territory, or District.
The Migratory Bird Treaty Act regulations approved July 31, 1918 (40 Stat.
1912), and all amendments thereof are hereby revoked, but all regulations
heretofore adopted and approved pursuant to said act closing areas of land
and water or of land or water adjacent to migratory bird sanctuaries, refuges,
reservations, and breeding and feeding grounds to the taking of migratory
birds, and all orders and permits of the Secretary of Agriculture heretofore
made or issued pursuant to said act and now in force authorizing the killing
or other disposition of certain species of migratory birds when injurious to
crops and other property and interests and the taking, possession, sale, purchase,
exchange, or transportation of migratory birds and their nests and eggs for
scientific purposes, and migratory waterfowl for propagating purposes, are
hereby continued and extended in full force and effect as regulations, orders, and
permits adopted and approved or made or issued hereunder.
