    Any chance you can forward a copy of that email??

    I don't doubt you have it, but I think it is inaccurate.

    You are correct...there is nothing about party hunting. But it does outline what daily and possession limits are on a per hunter basis.

    I'm surprised no one has said this one....bringing a non licensed family or friend out hunting/fishing so they can see if they'd like it. It can cost a pretty penny to get started.

    Some info to consider......

    Question: What license or permit do I require to hunt migratory game birds in Canada?
    Answer: To hunt migratory game birds in Canada, you require a Federal Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit (MGBHP) with an affixed Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp. A single MGBHP is required in Canada for hunting in different provinces and territories. It is not transferable and must only be used by the person who completed and signed it. The MGBHP must be carried with you at all times when hunting or when in possession of migratory game birds in a place other than the holder's residence. The Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit must be shown to game officers upon request.



    Question: May I purchase a Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit for another person?
    Answer: Yes. It is permissible for one person to purchase a Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit for another person. The permit for the other person will need to be filled out with the information for the person who will actually hold and use the permit.Only the person whose information is indicated on the permit can use the MGBHP for hunting.


    Question: May I buy multiple Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permits to increase my allowable take (daily bag and possession limits)?
    Answer: No. A person cannot increase their allowable take by purchasing additional Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permits. The daily bag and possession limits apply to the person and not to the permit.


    Question: May I give my Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit to a hunting partner if, for some reason, I cannot go hunting?
    Answer: No. Your Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit is not transferable it must only be used by the person whose name and information is indicated on the permit.


    Question: What is the difference between the daily bag limit and the possession limit?
    Answer: The daily bag limit is the maximum number of birds which a hunter may harvest during any single day of hunting. The possession limit is the maximum number of birds which a person may have in their possession; for a hunter, this means the maximum they may possess after having hunted for more than a single day and includes birds they have at their residence as well as in the field. The possession limit applies to all persons (including non-hunters who may receive birds as a gift), and for all birds.

    Its totally legal as long as they are not directly involved with the hunt. (just an observer) Happens all the time, even by CO's.

    Been beat to death here over the years.

    I'll see if I can find the email. I don't waterfowl hunt anymore so I don't think I have a hard copy anymore. If I remember correctly the gist of the email was per man daily limit times number of guys in the group equals the number of birds the group can take. She did mention to be careful to maintain good communication between hunters so as not to go over as you approach the limit.

    Again TPM, I don't doubt you have it, but I am almost 100% sure it is incorrect. I wonder what the position of the person you spoke to was.

    I found a couple of old ask a CO questions and in both the CO's state NO to party hunting Waterfowl.

    Hi. Just to clarify - I have taken the stance with a couple of other hunters that party hunting for waterfowl is not permitted. Each person in the party is permitted to shoot their daily limit but not fill out someone else's in the group once they've finished their own. Am I right on this?
    Asked August 20, 2003
    Answer from the MNR

    I hope you put money on it because you are correct! Check out question 110 under FAQ/Game


    A recent posting to a fishing message board referred to an ice fishing party where in total they had less than the party limit of whitefish but individually some had caught more and some obviously less than their individual limit. The ones catching more were charged. When I read the posting I assumed there was probably more to the story such as the party was not physically fishing from the same hut. However a response to the posting referred to Question #49 in the FAQ Fish section wherein the CO answer stated that it is illegal to party fish. This comes as a real surprise to me and I wondered if the same applies to waterfowl hunting. Two licensed hunters hunting from the same blind shoot a limit of 12 ducks..one hunter shot 7 ducks and the other 5 ducks. The hunters are leaving the marsh and are stopped by a CO. Would a CO even ask the question who shot what?

    Answer from the MNR
    You cannot "party fish" for any species of fish, nor party hunt for ducks, rabbits, grouse, turkey or any other small game. The only species for which you can "party hunt" for are deer, moose or bear.
