    You are so right. Many hunter-fishermen, who I know do the same thing, do not think it wrong, and view themselves as responsible hunters.

    Hunting after sunset I would imagine is quite common.

    It absolutely is in writing. It tells you how many birds you are allowed to shoot, not how many of yours and your buddies.

    Your location says BC so maybe the rules are a little different there, but we can legally hunt here until 1/2 hour after sunset.

    This has always been the rule i followed.

    The party hunting for rabbits is also something that was really prevalent in ON, until the populations were decimated.

    Seems like some guys are just running with second hand information that their grandfathers essentially made up. I was invited to another multi-county coyote hunt this winter and passed on it as i couldn't get straight answers from the participants as to the legalities of several of their actions.

    Something tells me that coyotes also can't be party hunted.

    You are correct. Its clearly stated in the regs under the definition of party hunting and in the wolf coyote section.

    This only applies when hunting in an area where a Wolf/Coyote tag is required. In southern Ontario,we can hunt in a party because no tags are required and there's no bag/possession limit.

    Yes it would depend on the area but hunting in a party is different than party hunting. Party hunting is when you are hunting as a group under another persons tag. In the regs under party hunting it states "the term party hunting means two or more persons hunting during an open season for moose, elk, deer or black bear under all the following conditions....." Hunting in a party means going out in a group and hunting together and not hunting under another hunters tag or limit.

    So technically, when in a group, you are not "party hunting" for wolf/coyote where only a small game licence is required.

    I remember that rule when I lived in Pembroke. My dad insisted we had to have the venison done before the next season but I think that was just so the game wardens could tell if youd taken a deer out of season.

    Last year opening day of duck season, I watched two guys get written up for "party" hunting ducks, among other things such as baiting. They had 11 ducks, and both guns still out. At that point, as per the CO, one gun should have been put away, as one persons limit was already filled, and there is no party hunting.

    While I don't agree with every rule / law, I follow them to a T, it's not worth the fight, hassle, and potential to lose the privelage of hunting for, despite how minute you might think the infraction is, or that you won't get caught.

    Allot of guys think "I'm on my own, or someone elses private land" no one is going to come bother me / find me.

    As well last year, we had a CO come into private land while goose hunting and check us all out, and one guy got nailed for no small games license (claimed he didn't know).

    So don't think because you're somewhere protected, they won't come looking for you / at you.

    I know it sure can be tempting, and I've had "offers" to circumvent a rule/law, (the birds are already back at the house, lets head back out, etc) but I love this sport way to much to jeapordize losing the prividlage, so before you head out, make sure you know the ins and outs surrounding what you're hunting, and where you are hunting.

    If there's a law or a rule that you find silly / doesn't make sense, rather then break it and risk the losses, band together and fight for change.
