(a) There shall be a $1.00 issuance fee for all licenses sold by the Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, which shall be in addition to the prescribed cost of such licenses. In counties where the probate judge or issuing officer is on the fee system, the issuing fee shall be retained by the probate judge or issuing officer, and in counties where the probate judge or issuing officer is on a salary basis, the fee shall be paid by him into the county treasury to the credit of the appropriate fund. It shall be unlawful to charge any amount that is in excess of the fee provided herein; and, if any probate judge, license commissioner, special agent or other person authorized to issue such licenses does so, he shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished, upon conviction, by a fine of not less than $10.00 nor more than $25.00 for each offense.

(b) The balance of such fees shall be remitted to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources on the first of each month, which balance shall be covered into the Treasury to the credit of the Game and Fish Fund of the department.

(c) Said judges of probate and all other duly authorized and designated persons shall report to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources on the first day of each month the number and kind of licenses issued and the name and post-office address of the person or persons to whom issued, giving opposite each name the serial number of the license so issued.
