    Thank you, defiantly some improvements in clarity in several sections of the act that I totally agree with and is long over due.

    Ok does this now mean no eating birds at camp? If hunters are on a Multi day hunt and want to have a few duck or goose breasts in a meal, will we have to take them home first?

    New concept of possession — concept of preservation introduced

    The new proposed concept of possession is that once birds are preserved according to the criteria set out in the amended MBRs, they no longer count in an individual’s possession limit. This would encourage hunters to preserve birds for future use, thus avoiding waste. A bird would be considered preserved when it is

    plucked and eviscerated (or the edible portions removed from the carcass), and then;
    frozen, cooked, dried, canned or smoked, or when mounted for taxidermy.

    Birds preserved during the day they were harvested would continue to count toward the daily bag limit of the hunter who harvested them. Partial processing of harvested birds may occur in the hunting areas. Birds may be eviscerated and plucked in any location, but the meat, along with the fully feathered head or wing, must be retained on the carcasses until they are later completely preserved.

    ************************************************** *********************************************
    "The subsequent processes for preserving (freezing, making sausages, cooking, drying, canning or smoking) must occur in a residence or a non-mobile facility, and must not be performed in the hunting area."
    ************************************************** *********************************************

    Harvested birds would continue to count in the possession limit until they are completely preserved. An unpreserved bird would no longer count toward the owner’s possession limit when the bird is gifted to someone and the gift is accepted by the new owner.

    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    I don't see anything but reasonable rules there. Good that some of the unclear parts of the legislation are cleared up - like retrieval of downed game. Good news for us waterfowlers...
