here in Pa. You would have been paying a fine. It is not legal here .We have to keep anything we shoot out of site . If the wardens here are watching (and they watch alot) you need to pick up anything you shoot within about 5 minutes or get your wallet out

Most states yes and some states no. It can vary from state to state, so you need to check with your states enforcement div of the F&G to see if it is allowed.

From a federal standpoint, yes is is legal from what I have seen permited--they allow stuffers, so essentially that is what you are doing. If in doubt, write a letter to the USFWS enforcement div and ask them. The reason for a letter is this---if another field agant says different--you can show them the letter. Just look up the USFWS in the phone book, as most states have at least 1 if not several offices and their address should be there---or use the net and google them.

H2OFOWL, REREAD THE ORIGINAL ?. I THINK YOU MISUNDERSTOOD. I'VE ALREADY "PICKED THEM UP", IN FACT I ATE THEM THUS ELIMINATING THE MEAT. THEN I USED THE CARCASS FOR A DEKE. THE ONLY THING SHORT OF A STUFFER IS THE MISSING FORM.

Here in Ca you can harvest 7 ducks a day or 14 in possession. 3 geese 6 in possession. On 4-5 day hunts possession becomes a problem. Freeze and send them home is the only option, or quit hunting. I would think that those already eaten birds are still considered part of possession here in Ca.

Pump, find the little button on your keyboard that says 'caps lock' and turn it off! I'm getting a headache from reading your posts! It isnt necessary to shout here.
