Personally, I'd much rather see a tag system adopted than the time limit. We've been hunting Alberta or Sask for about fifteen years and have never exceeded posession limits. Its a long drive, and feeling like we had to hurry to get birds would be a loss. If someone feels they need to shoot more than the very generous posession limits and eat a few they need to check their ethics. And we have only gifted birds to landowners that asked for a bird or two. Since we've fixed them our Asian style BBQ'd goose we get a few more requests in the area we hunt. But this year those folks came hunting with us. In the past we've had locals want to hunt with us and give us their birds because they didn't want them.
