I am a duck hunter and a hobby taxidermist. (not a licensed taxidermist) I like to keep several wild shot ducks to mount. I have seen discussions on possession limits so I thought I would post the answers I got from Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks regarding the following 7 questions. The Kansas daily bag limit is 6, and the possession limit is 12. Most of the questions mimic Porter's questions to the California DFG on a previous post. http://www.taxidermy.net/forum/index.php/topic,213732.0.html I was hoping for the same answers. ;D 1) At what point does a bird no longer become a bird? As long as the parts of the bird are not consumed or rendered into a finished mounted specimen, it is considered a bird that counts toward a bag or possession limit. 2) If I skin out a bird, remove all of the meat, and put it into my freezer, does the meat and the skin now become 2 birds? no - stays 1 bird 3) Does a skinned out bird count as one bird towards my possession limit? yes 4) Do birds in the freezer from last year count towards my possession limit? yes 5) Do mounted birds count towards my possession limit? no 6) Once I gift a bird to a member of my household, am I required to keep a tag or documentation of the gift? no 7) Once I gift a bird to a member of my household, are they required to keep a tag or documentation of the gift? yes It appears as though the Kansas regulations are more strict than the Federal regulations. I was hoping that once the meat hit the freezer it would no longer counted toward possession. STRIKE 1 I was hoping that the skin did not count toward possession- STRIKE 2 I was hoping that I could gift the birds, specifically the breast meat, to my wife without keeping documentation- STRIKE 3 I was hoping this would help some good-hearted, law-abiding Kansan like me. . . . . . but I doubt it will. I'm OUT I guess I'll just keep 6 mounting specimens per year. Or keep 6 more that I shoot on the final day. Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.
