    What are the daily limits for ducks in your state? The picture of the missing musician and his huge strap of ducks got me thinking about this. Are the limits much higher in the south? If so, why? If waterfowl are managed federally, why would the winter range get to shoot more than the summer range?

    For New York: "The daily limit of 6 ducks includes all mergansers and sea ducks (scoters, eiders and long-tailed ducks) and may include no harlequin ducks and no more than 4 mallards (2 of which may be hens), 3 wood ducks, 1 black duck, 2 pintail, 2 scaup, 2 redheads, 2 canvasback, 4 scoters, 4 eiders, 4 long-tailed ducks or 2 hooded mergansers. For all other duck species found in New York, the daily limit is 6."

        When I see a guy posing with a lot of ducks, I figure he's there with the gang's take of the day.

        And maybe his hunting buddies are really ugly ;-)

          As I recall, the feds typically set maximum limits for flyways and states can manage within the maximum.

          Here we are allowed five honkers/cacklers and twenty snows/blues per day. Unlimited possession limits for both honkers and snows. I'm not sure about limits for speckles but it's unlikely I'd shoot any here. CD2 is bang on. Take a look at this photo of me wearing old Pearl's last bunch of geese retrieved when she was battling both autoimmune disease and progressive kidney failure.

          Hard to say who shot what as they all fell out of the same black cloud of geese but there's exactly ten honkers/cacklers and one snow in the bunch. Two of us were hunting. Just damned lucky more than ten black geese didn't drop.

            I think the daily limit for ducks here is seven with no more than two black ducks. I don't bother much with ducks so don't pay much attention to the regs for them. I wouldn't shoot more than five anyway and never more than one black duck per day.

                The singer's dog was rescued alive. This photo of him sure reminded me of old Pearl. It's the eyes and white whiskers.

                  Yeah, I looked at Arkansas and Louisiana and it was 6 in both states. I guess some southerners just have a thing for posing with their buddies' ducks...

                        Lot of guys report on Duck Unlimited Migration Reports like this: " Killed a 3 man limit on Tuesday." Don't know if that is just lazy, because they never mention the number of guys hunting. Could be interpreted several ways. One guy hunting - over the limit!
