and red squirrels) or any part, egg, offspring, or dead body of
any of them.


(a) Having a due regard for the distribution, abundance,
economic value, and breeding habits of wildlife, the Secretary
may adopt rules and regulations to enlarge, extend, restrict, or
prohibit hunting, possessing, selling, purchasing, shipping,
carrying, transporting, or exporting wildlife.

(c) In case of fire hazard or other emergency, the
Secretary may adopt any rule or regulation pursuant to subsection

publication in a newspaper of general circulation in every county
affected by the rule or regulation.

shall establish by rule or regulation and publish by July 1 each
year the open season, excepting Sundays, to hunt the forest and
upland game birds and mammals.

(b)  If the Department by rule or regulation pursuant to §
10-205 of this title restricts or reduces the number of days
normally allowed to hunt, possess, sell, purchase, ship,
transport, carry, or export any game bird or mammal because of an
emergency situation, the Department may extend the open season to
provide a comparable number of days in any given season.
