    Default 2014-2015 Regs Are Out - Some Intersting Changes!

    The 2014-2015 Regs are out and there are some interesting changes: http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/static/re.../waterfowl.pdf

    WHAT’S NEW IN 2014?
    Changes to Regulations This Year:
    “Dark” goose regulations have been split into separate categories for Canada
    Geese and White-fronted geese. Please see the tables and footnotes in your
    Hunting Zone for daily bag and possession limits.
    In Unit 18, in western Alaska, White-fronted geese daily bag and possession
    limits have increased to 8 daily, 24 in possession.
    A registration permit and having your geese checked is no longer required to
    hunt Canada geese in Units 6B, 6C, and on Hinchinbrook and Hawkins Islands
    in Unit 6D. A registration permit is still needed for Middleton Island.
    The definition of edible meat that must be salvaged has changed for swans,
    geese (including brant) and sandhill cranes. For these species hunters must
    salvage the meat of the breast and the meat of the legs and thighs (femur,
    tibiotarsus, and fibula). Salvage requirements for ducks and snipe have not
    changed.

    What do you guys think of these changes?

    I like the adjustment made for the white fronted geese bag limit (although we see very few around here).

    The addition of keeping leg meat in swan, geese and cranes makes sense too.

    If you do a search Hugh (duckhunter01) the AWA president and several members went to the BOG meeting and got several other measures tossed out that made no sense. They conceded on the leg meat salvage since most waterfowlers keep that portion of meat on a bigger bird anyway. I think the changes that were adapted will suit us well and the ones that Hugh and the AWA helped get shot down were INSANE and would have really put a damper on waterfowl season.
    Makin fur fins and feathers fly.

    I must have missed that thread. I'll have to see if I can find it.
