Allocation of nonresident tags for outfitters and guides

Notwithstanding any other provision of the wildlife laws, the State Fish and Wildlife Commission by rule shall establish a system for allocating hunting permits that are limited by maximum number for the taking of deer and elk by nonresident hunters so that a number equal to one-half of the number of those permits issued to nonresident hunters in the previous year are made available to the holders of registrations issued pursuant to ORS chapter 704, and who are certified pursuant to ORS 704.060 (Certification process for participation in allocation of certain deer and elk permits), for the use of the clients of those registration holders. Such a system shall include but not be limited to:

(1) Provisions to prevent misuse of the permits by the registrant or by employees of the registrant.

(2) Provisions for revocation and refusal to issue all or any portion of the permits based upon a commission finding of an emergency situation or biological needs. [1997 c.342 §2; 2003 c.644 §5]
