I only ask this cause myself and a few buddies have had this happen in the past. You have your limit and your picking up/walking out and your dog pops out of the bushes with a cripple that someone else shot and didn't find or sailed ect. Now you one bird over your limit, what do you do? If you keep it you over bag limit, if you leave it its wanton waste. In the past i was able to find the guys who sailed the bird but what if they hadn't been there? I realize this is a question for the troopers but what do you guys think from an ethics stand point? I've noticed a good number of lame birds floating around this year. Just a reminder that everyone needs to make every possible effort to recover every bird even if it goes hundreds of yards And if you knock one down and dont find it then in my eyes count it in your bag limit.
