all you are legally required to take is the breasts. A guy I know who is an outfitter was told just that. And I am absolutely floored that someone thinks you need the wings on all your breasts in the freezer once you are home. Someone needs to learn how to read and comprehend what they read.

ROFLMAO, yeah, you may want to have a little read on the regs before making up your own laws. once the bird is home, no need for any wings.

Then I would like some F&W officer to visit Ongaro's lodge and look in the reduction bin there because his processor only removes a part of the breast. She makes one swipe with a fillet knife, takes off about 1/2 of the breast and tosses the rest. Never mind the legs.

This makes sense...riffies etc I stand on the wing and pull the legs...only keep the breast....those weee wings and legs are not worth it....guess I will take them home to feed the cats and I will eat the breasts.

I don't know the answer but I don't like the wording in the regs either. I take the breasts, thighs/legs and heart from geese. Ducks and grouse I usually just take the breast.

How in the world would you know that? Ongaro giving private tours of his operations now?

Ask 5 different officers and youíll get 5 different answers!!

Default What about big game then?

So I could leave the neck , rib and hawk meat on a deer carcass and throw it away without repercussions.? Its all edible but a pain in the neck to clean all
The gristle and silver skin out of the meat.

All I can ever get is voicemail.

Have had a few PMs. Seems like a discretionary call by the officer. I just cut out a bunch of legs this morning. We had a nice hunt

tikka 250, I know about Ongaro's by watching his TV show on Wild TV channel. Every once in a while they film in the processing shed and you see what they do in there. Also, common sense, he has one person named Barb cleaning the birds. When the snows are in there will be two(2) parties of hunters going out and between snows, ducks and dark geese they will shoot 200+ birds per party. How do you think one person processes 400+ birds/ day for a 2 1/2 day booked hunt?

Yes I heard about the American hunters complaining,if they didnt get 100 birds a day--wow.Because I am from another era,and an ex market hunter.I have shot 150 seabirds in a day.And can never remember thowing away any part,this took many hours,and was hard "work".The hearts and livers,put aside.Yes we did it for money,not realizeing there was an end to it.Todays hunters do it for "sport"not wanting the inconvience,of legs etc.

In my way of thinking itís quite simple. Hire some more help. Wait a minute, thatís a foolish way of thinking. It would cut into the bottom line.

When I a was young I travelled the wilderness alone with my dogs camping for days.Someone asked why always with the dogs--I replyed it was to guarantee a food supply.My very old grandmother,In the background,asked for you or the dogs-----

When the birds are cleaned they still need a wing attached for transportation so I would guess they aren't really cutting the breasts off to begin with

If you watch the show, the Americans heading to the airport don't have any coolers. They just come up here to shoot. I THINK Ongaro cleans the little bit he does off the birds: a) to avoid being shut down and b) to charge the hunters the bird cleaning fee.

There's a big thing with FW on what is right on just keeping the breast's,there is no law requiring you to keep the legs in the migratory bird act.

Lots of CO's aren't happy about this and spoke with top cheese in Manitoba and he said they would like to see the legs and such taken home, but no law in the act.

Myself I keep the whole bird and I find it a waste to leave any part of any bird or animal that is eatable and let it go to waste, being lazy is all it is to me.

Spelled out in Manitoba.

The following from the 2019 Manitoba Hunting Regulations:

No person who kills, injures, or is in possession of a game
bird, shall abandon, waste or spoil, or allow to be abandoned,
wasted or spoiled, any edible portion of the bird. The
departmentís guideline is that all edible portions must be used
for human consumption. The edible portions for grouse are the
breasts and for wild turkey and migratory game birds edible
portions are breasts and legs.

Spelled out the way it should be--Clear as a bell.
