§ 708.10. Pronghorn Antelope License Tags, Application, Distribution and Reporting Procedures.
(a) Fund-raising buck pronghorn antelope license tags:
Fund-raising license tags for the taking of buck pronghorn antelope shall be offered for sale for the purpose of raising funds for the management of pronghorn antelope. The department may conduct a random drawing to distribute fund-raising tags. Any resident or nonresident is eligible to buy one of the fund-raising license tags. The sale price of a fund-raising license tag includes the fee for processing and issuing an annual hunting license for the purchaser or any person designated by the purchaser. A fund-raising license tag distributed through a department random drawing does not include the fee for processing and issuing a hunting license. The purchasers shall be issued the fund-raising license tag only after meeting the hunter education requirements for a hunting license.
(b) Distribution of pronghorn antelope license tags:
(1) Applicants shall apply, and pay a nonrefundable processing fee as specified in Section 702, through the department's Automated License Data System terminals at any department license agent or department license sales office on or before June 2 each year.
(2) Applicants shall be California residents or nonresidents, at least 12 years of age on or before July 1 of the license year for which they are applying. Applicants for the apprentice pronghorn antelope hunts shall hold a junior hunting license for the license year for which they are applying. Applicants shall possess an annual California hunting license that is valid during the pronghorn antelope season for which they are applying.
(3) Up to two residents may apply together as a party. Nonresidents may not apply as a party.
(4) Applicants shall apply for only one designated zone pursuant to Section 363.
(5) No applicant shall submit more than one application per license year for a pronghorn antelope license tag.
(6) Incomplete, late and ineligible applications and applications submitted without the appropriate processing fee will not be included in the drawing and the applicant will not earn a preference point.
(7) Successful applicants and a list of alternates for each zone shall be determined by drawing within 10 business days following the application deadline date. If the drawing is delayed due to circumstances beyond the department's control, the department shall conduct the drawing at the earliest date possible.
(8) Not more than one nonresident shall be selected to receive a general license tag each year.
(9) Unsuccessful applicants shall not be notified by mail. Successful applicants will be mailed notification as soon as practical. Upon receipt of the notification, the applicant shall submit the appropriate tag fee, as specified in Section 702, through the department's Automated License Data System terminals at any department license sales office. The tag fee shall be received by the department by 5:00 p.m. on July 15 each year. If the deadline to submit the fee falls on a weekend or holiday payment will be accepted until the close of business on the first state business day following the deadline to submit payment.
(10) Should the quota for each zone remain unfilled after that date, the alternate lists shall be used. Any tags unclaimed by successful applicants after that date shall be awarded to alternates for that zone, on an individual basis, in the order drawn.
(c) Tagholder Responsibilities:
(1) Only persons possessing valid pronghorn antelope license tags are entitled to hunt pronghorn antelope. Tags shall not be transferable and are valid only in the area, season, and period specified on the tag.
(A) All tag holders shall return the report card portion of their license tag to the department within one week after the close of the pronghorn antelope season, even though the tagholder may not have killed a pronghorn antelope.
(B) The holder of a pronghorn antelope license tag, after killing a pronghorn antelope, shall immediately fill out all portions of the tag including the report card completely, legibly, and permanently, and cut out or punch out and completely remove notches or punch holes for the month and date of the kill. The tag portion shall be immediately attached to a horn of buck pronghorn antelope or to an ear of doe pronghorn antelope and kept attached for 15 days after the close of the open season.
(C) The tagholder shall surrender his license tag to an employee of the department for any of the following reasons:
1. Any act on the part of the tagholder which violates any of the provisions of the Fish and Game Code, or any regulations of this commission.
2. Any act on the part of the tagholder which endangers the person or property of others. The decision of the department in such respects shall be final and binding upon the tagholder.
