Dogs and Limits

Postby gifters » Mon Jun 10, 2013 12:55 pm

Hey guys I just moved up here, thought I'd ponder a question,

If you go out duck hunting and your dog catches and kills its own duck. Does that go against your limit? For which day? Last year I went out with a buddy and while we're setting up decoys the dog comes back with a warm dead duck without any holes in it... can you be charged with an over limit if a duck hasn't been shot?

What are your thoughts,

Any bird in your possession is counted. Period. Even if the guy in the blind next to you dropped it and you pick it up, it is yours until you hand it over to him.

Your duck and your bag...

Expanding on this question...

If your dog kills a grebe are you in trouble?

I will assume that this goes for when you are or are not hunting.

If your dog is a ward of you and a wolf is a ward of the state... Obviously that is extreme, but the same can be said of expecting someone to have absolute control over their dog.
