Ohio DNR rule clarification

Postby richarj2 » Thu Dec 09, 2010 9:20 am

I am not sure if I am clear on the bag limits vs the Possession after the first day limit as its written up in the Ohio DNR rules and regulations.

can anyone explain to me what the POSSESSION LIMIT AFTER FIRST DAY is. its double the daily bag limit but I am not clear on what it means exactly

Possession limit is what you're allowed to have in your possession. If you have 13 birds in your freezer at home, technically, your wrong and can be fined. That regulation was put in place for "bad guys" who have 200 birds in their freezer. Mostly up north on Lake Erie. I wouldnt worry too much about it if you have over 12.

You are allowed twice daliy bag limit in your freezer is the rule but if u hunt every day and kill a limit your going to have to eat alot of meat not sure why its like that i mean your allowed what 5 deer and can be eaten all yr. i think waterfowl should be more so u can eat yr round. but i am against people shooting over a limit in a day be legal. our goal every time we go out is to shoot no hens, every hen u shoot that is 5-7 ducks wont be around next yr. i think we all should follow that.

The rule is very stupid....probably created and voted on by a bunch of people who dont even own waders or a shotgun. Lets say we get into snow geese heavy come march and kill a couple hundred since there is no daily bag limit during the conservation season well come novemeber you are a criminal because now theres a daily bag limit of 25; which means you can only have double your daily limit in possesion? i agree with the last comment just follow your daily limits and everything would/should be fine.

This is a holdover from market hunting days and applys to all small game not just waterfowl in the state of Ohio.Don't know if it applys to fish but I believe so.

Makes sense Mike. I thought it was an additional buffer to individual limits also. Back when I bunny hunted I would run across groups of 2-3 retired guys running beagles nearly every day. While I couldn't begrudge 'em their agenda - sure noticed how quick some areas got rabbit-less. Possession does put a little governor on it.

When properly tagged wild game can be gifted to another person.When's the last time you gave a family member a gift? Also the law is used almost exclusively in conjunction with a suspected poaching violation. We've got a member of a couple of our clubs that throws a meeting night squirrel supper for each club once a year.Jerry raises Mountian Feists and kills way over 100 squirrels a year.The only position limits the wardens worry about are how much they can get on their plates. What I'm trying to say is if you aren't a outlaw I wouldn't worry about how many of any one species you have in the freezer.

The possession limit was put in place so the weekend hunter could hunt two days and not be in violation on his way home. Most states wount consider 13 or 30 ducks in the freezer a possession limit, but the Feds will. So if your huntin an area more than two days becareful not to put your foot in your mouth when talkin to the Feds. :beer:
