Re: Baikal Teal shot in Colusa County

John Muegge

Federal Migratory Game Bird Laws, not state determine the bag limits on certain species and totals for
all species of waterfowl in California.  In the zone that this bird was shot, the total duck bag limit is 7. This bird, even though not expected, would still be included in the general duck bag limit for the zone that it was killed.

My understanding is that the way state game laws are written that unless there is a bag limit on a duck or goose species it can be shot. Since Baikal Teal is not expected to even be here there is no bag limit so it is legal to take.

Just a question. Is it legal to shoot a non-native (vagrant) species in the US?

Don't know how many of you picked up on this one, but the eBird rarity message had this report late last night.
