The director shall designate a separate season for crossbow hunting and identify which species of wild animals that may be hunted with a crossbow. The director shall also establish a fee for the license: Provided, That the fee shall be at least $10.

    (b) The director shall propose a rule for legislative approval in accordance with article three, chapter twenty-nine-a of this code implementing this section.
