23:4-29. Taking game from state prohibited; penalty; exceptions
No person shall remove or attempt to remove from this State an animal or bird, other than deer, protected by the provisions of the State Fish and Game Code, or, in the absence of any provision in said code to the contrary, protected by this Title. A nonresident holding a nonresidents' and aliens' hunting license may, however, in any one day, remove from the State the number of animals or birds that may be taken under the provisions of the State Fish and Game Code in one day by one person, or, in the absence of such provisions in said code, the number of animals or birds that may be taken under the laws of this State in one day by one person, but not more birds or animals may be removed by one person in one calendar week than the number that may be taken under the provisions of the State Fish and Game Code in two days by one person, or, in the absence of such provisions in said code, than the number that may be taken under the laws of this State in two days by one person. No removal shall be made unless the animals or birds are exposed to open view.
A person violating this section shall be liable to a penalty of twenty dollars ($20.00) for each animal or bird removed or sought to be removed.
This section shall not apply to common carriers carrying from beyond the confines of this State in unbroken packages to some point beyond the confines of this State any such protected animal or bird, nor shall it apply to English or ring-necked pheasants, mallard, black or wood ducks, Canada geese, ruffed grouse, rabbits, squirrels and quail, properly tagged, raised on game preserves, the owners or lessees of which are licensed by the division.
