All requests for quail trapping permits must be accompanied by proof of land ownership or lease-hold interest for the property on which quail traps are to be operated, a county or highway map showing property location, and an aerial photo, tax map, or plat designating property boundaries. The department may deny or revoke a permit at its discretion."
