So after reading this article by Medred I am left confused.
Consider that you are in a One Bear per Hunter Area. Evidently if you shoot an "anchoring" shot to help out your hunting partner you are now taking over the limit on bear in that area if you take your own bear.
Is it that they might have shot at the same time?
Do both hunters have to tag the same bear then?
Will guides be processuted for this? How about a non-res guide on a brown bear? Are they over the limit and "hunting" with out a guide if they put in a shot on their customer's brown bear?
When a parent takes their child hunting and the child shoots a moose, the parent puts in a shot to anchor the moose just splits of seconds after the child fired. The child is old enough to have their own harvest ticket. The next day the parent shoots their own moose. Is the parent now over the limit on moose? Does it matter when the second shooter fires? What if they were both on a grassy knoll?
When a flock of ducks come in and there is one male green head and both my friend and I shoot just at the greenhead and we both hit it, then keep shooting through the morning and get our limits for the day (8 each), which one of us is now over the limit because we each hit the same duck? One of us technically shot 9 ducks even though we only have 8 in each of our bags.
I went through the reg books a few minutes ago and I didn't see where the issue of two people shooting at a game animal is addressed as to limit restrictions.
As for the not shooting from a boat thing, that appears in several locations in the regulations so they have no excuse for not knowing. Wonder when they are going to processecute the boat owning friend for unlicensed guiding and outfitting? Wonder how long till this thread gets locked due to comments about Medred.
