    Default Possession Limits for Ducks

    Hey all I was asked a question the other day about possession limits for ducks and I can't seem to find the answer anywhere so I thought I'd ask you all.

    As we all know there is a limit to how many ducks we can have and that limit applies to all the ducks in our freezer as well as in the field. We are also able to gift ducks to anyone as long as we follow the regulations on gifting ducks.

    So the question is if you were to gift 18 ducks to your wife can you then have 18 ducks of your own in the same house?

    I have been reading regulations most of the day trying to see if this would be ok and can't find one regulation that says 2 people in the same house can't have a limit each. It would seem that as long as a CO could tell whose birds were whose then it would be ok.

    This may come across as harsh but it sounds like your trying to cheat the system. LOL gifting birds you shot to your wife to double what you can legally keep. As a licenced hunter stay to you limit. If you wish to gift 1 or 2 birds this may be reasonable dumping limits is abusive. Now as for legality you may want to contact a CO and ask your question directly to them.

    As per this regulation
    12.2
    A person may give a migratory game bird to another person for the purpose of mounting or human consumption, or for the purpose of training dogs as retrievers, if the bird was killed under the authority of a migratory game bird hunting permit.

    • SOR/95-432, s. 2.


    Seems you are limited to A single duck not a possession limit so I think your quest is out of gas

    I believe they can be gifted to whoever, but they need to be labelled with the permit number, hunter, etc.

    I don't think it is suppose to actually mean only one duck.

    How do you read " give a migratory game bird" A bird has always meant 1. Couple meant 2 few meant 3.
    It would read
    A person may give migratory game birds to another person....
    if they really meant more than 1

    Its not restricted to one bird, The Migratory Birds Regulations allow legally harvested migratory game birds to be gifted to others and the recipient does not require a Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit in order to possess such birds legally harvested. There are several requirements for possessing or transporting such gifted birds, however. Birds taken by a hunter that are subsequently possessed by another person must be individually tagged, and have a fully feathered wing attached. For tagging, the hunter must attach a tag to each migratory game bird he gives you, and each tag must contain:
    1. the name and address of the hunter and his signature;
    2. the Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit Number under which the birds were taken; and
    3. the date the birds were taken.

    Also, ensure that you do not exceed the possession limit for that species of migratory game birds which are gifted to you.

    As I stated in the original post I was looking for a reg that would state whether more then one person in a house my have a limit of birds. The original example of gifting to your wife was what someone asked me but if that question is offensive to some people lets say it this way.
    Two people living in one house both have a licence to hunt ducks go out and shoot ducks, are they both able to have 18 ducks in the freezer?

    Please ask yourself why have a possession limit if one could circumvent that requirement by stashing the extra birds so easily.
