Re: Baikal Teal shot in Colusa County

To clarify, the daily limit on ducks is 7 (and the regulation language is "ducks"). Therefore, any duck that happens to show up can be harvested but one hunter would only be allowed to harvest 7 per day. Keep in mind that the regulations also state how many ducks of certain species can be harvested per day and count towards the daily bag limit of 7 (e.g., only 1 pintail is allowed to be harvested per day). However, species that dont occur here frequently are not included in this language so 7 Baikal Teal could be legally harvested by one hunter in one day.
Same applies to geese.

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.
