Who counts cripples toward daily bag
« on: December 17, 2017, 07:13:14 PM »
Today me and a buddy had a good hunt we got 13 but crippled one that we could not get. We where hunting a part of the Columbia river from shore for divers and one we knock down got out of range from shore. We did not have a boat with us. Unfortunately anyone who hunts diver ducks knows that know matter how hard you try sometimes they dive away. We count a bird such as this toward our limit and quit early. How many else do the same. It does not seem like by the rules legally you have to stop early we just feel like its the right thing to do.

I do the same. If you knock it down, its part of your limit.

Curious who does the same with big game - if that's not a thread jack. 

To the original question: I have not counted it unless it's in posession.

I have. the first year I hunted montana for just deer, I witnessed some guys pull up and blaze away at a group of deer and drive off, next day I spent my tag on a spindly 4 point that had been wounded by these punks the day before. I had passed a bunch of nice bucks prior but think I had more satisfaction tagging that one than a mediocre buck

I do. Each of the last two years I have shot a drake Harlequin, both dove and surfaced too far out to swat... done for the season.

I count them.  It helps me make good decisions about when to shoot.

Ask a game warden; I think you have to count lost birds as part of you limit.

Really not trying to be argumentative, but I don't think the law requires you to count lost birds.   You have a possession limit..... so you need to possess them.

I think you are correct, might make people pass some more questionable shots if the other way though.....

You are required to make a "reasonable effort" to recover downed birds. If you sail them and don"t try to recover them it can be viewed as a wasting violation.  :twocents:
