So a quick question. I bought all my licenses for bird hunting this past weekend...or so I think. Are they still issuing a sea duck harvest report card? I always get one just in case but the lady tried to tell me it was part of the waterfowl authorization??? I think she is wrong but she did not :) Can someone help me on this? I got my snow goose which is more important but just want to know.
Thanks

Yes, they are supposed to issue Sea ducks, and Brant report cards as well as Snow Goose with the Waterfowl Authorization, but for some reason WDFW doesn't have either of them available yet. I've already made two additional trips into Sportsman's to check since mid-August, and you are correct the only report card available is Snow Goose.

Seaduck and Brant will be available Oct 1. there are some efforts in place to clean up old data from noncompliant seaduck cards and people that got cards with no intention of hunting seaducks. Trying to get better data which is the cause of the delay here.

It is another term for a harvest report. You record each bird you take as you harvest them and then send the form in at the end of the season.

That's what I thought it was

More stupidity from WDFW, making things harder, more inconvenient and confusing for hunters. I swear the current staff at WDFW hates hunters.
