248,516 Section 516. 29.43 (title), (1) to (4) and (5) (title) and (a) of the statutes are renumbered 29.357 (title), (1) to (4) and (5) (title) and (a), and 29.357 (1) to (4) and (5) (a), as renumbered, are amended to read:
29.357 (1) (title) During close closed season. Except as otherwise expressly provided, it shall be unlawful for any in this chapter, no person to may transport or cause to be transported, or deliver or receive or offer to deliver or receive for transportation, any game or game fish or carcass or part thereof at any time other than during the open season therefor for the game or game fish and 3 days thereafter. Whenever any game or game fish or carcass or part thereof is offered to any person for transportation at any time other than during the open season therefor and 3 days thereafter, such the person shall forthwith immediately notify the department or its wardens, stating full particulars of such of the offer and by whom made.

248,517 Section 517. 29.43 (5) (b) of the statutes, as affected by 1997 Wisconsin Act 27, is renumbered 29.357 (5) (b).
Note: Current statutes relating to transportation of game fishes or carcasses are amended to delete references to parts of carcasses since parts are included in the definition of a carcass and to provide that the department may, by administrative rules, create exceptions to this requirement. For example, currently, it is unlawful for a person to take game to a meat processor to be smoked or processed in any fashion outside the open season. Technically, many violations of this provision are committed by persons who take meat to a processor to have it smoked or otherwise prepared for the holiday season. This change will permit the department to create exemptions for such actions.

248,519 Section 519. 29.44 (1) of the statutes is repealed.

Note: This provision is amended to reflect the fact that if a fish has been filleted it is no longer in one piece with the skin and scales intact. As revised, separate requirements are created for dressed fish as opposed to filleted fish.

248,532 Section 532. 29.47 (4) of the statutes is renumbered 29.407 (3).
248,533 Section 533. 29.47 (5) of the statutes is repealed.
