     3  and parts of bears, and the intentional and incidental feeding of bears.
     4  Such  regulations  shall  implement the provisions of this article. Such

    29  reasonably necessary to properly manage the deer herd in  the  state  in
    30  balance  with  the  available  deer  range  and natural food supply, the
    31  department may provide by regulation for  issuance  of  deer  management
