Whenever pheasants have damaged or destroyed cultivated crops on cleared and planted
land, the Division of Wildlife Resources may pay to the crop owner for the actual
damage not to exceed $200 yearly, if the owner notifies the Division of Wildlife Resources
of the damage within 48 hours after the damage is discovered. The appraisal of the damage shall be made by the crop owner and the Division of
Wildlife Resources as soon after notification as possible. If the crop owner and the Division of Wildlife Resources are unable to agree on
the fair and equitable damage, they shall call upon a third party, consisting of one
or more persons acquainted with the crops concerned and pheasants, to appraise such
damage; but if these provisions relating to damage claims are in conflict with the
requirements of the federal Pittman-Robertson Act 1 or the rules and regulations issued under it, then the provisions relating to damage
claims shall be null and void.
