(3) the time frame when radio telemetry pursuit of game will be conducted, including planned dates and frequency of field operations; and

(4) the names of all persons who will pursue game under the permit.

(c) A permit issued under this section must include reasonable conditions and protocols to ensure that

(1) game being pursued is not unduly harassed resulting in behavioral or energetic changes affecting individual viability or utility for research; and

(2) telemetry and survey operations conducted on game by the department or other government agencies will not be impeded by the permittee's activities.

(d) A permit issued under this section must include at least the following conditions:
