    As the possession limit is generally twice the daily bag limit, it seems to me that most here probably break that regulation with some degree of frequency (and that it is almost never enforced).

    I haven't had a chance to refresh my memory but the daily limit for doves is 15. New last year Feds changed to allow a person a 3 day possession limit. So 45 doves would be the maximum allowed to be possessed by any single person at any one time. Possession limits would include any birds you were transporting plus any birds you have in storage. Once birds are moved to consumption or gifted they no longer are considered in your possession.

    I understand how you could think it is not enforced but I suspect it is used as a tool more than you realize. Sounds like you should visit with your local warden(assuming you want to be in compliance). I tell people all the time to call and ask questions. The passenger seat of my work truck is not the time to be learning the regulations!!

    Possession limit is exactly that a possession limit, no matter where they are possessed. Dove do not require a wing to be attached though, only waterfowl.

    It's statements like this that only tend to obfuscate the issue. If you mean once they are cooked, or once they are eaten, just say that.

    That's probably what I'd do too.

    If they're already gunnin' for your ass, they're gonna hit it with as many bullets as they can.
    But, if they have no reason to mess with you, they aren't going to bother you about piddly BS.
