Do harvested migratory game birds count in the possession limit when they are preserved? What is the process to preserve harvested birds?

Once a bird is preserved for future use, it no longer counts as part of a hunter’s possession limit, with the exception of murres. A bird is preserved when it has:

  1. been eviscerated and plucked in any location and then been frozen, made into sausage, cooked, dried, canned or smoked in a location other than the hunting area
  2. in a location other than the hunting area, had its edible portions removed from its carcass and then been frozen, made into sausage, cooked, dried, canned or smoked; or
  3. been mounted for taxidermy

The daily bag limit still applies to birds that are preserved the day they were harvested. A hunter that harvested their daily bag limit, and then immediately preserves their birds may not continue hunting on the same day for those species.
