Does the possession limit still apply after you get home, process the meat and put freezer?

If its in the same 24 hours. Yes.
Can the gw enter your house without a search warrant? Yes, if there is suspision.
The possession is a daily limit wherever you are. Now you can lie and tell him/her it was from yesterday, but it will bite you back one day if you keep doing it.

Happy hunting.

We are leaving next week for Kansas to shoot Geese and Ducks. 3 and a half days of hunting. What can I do to stay legal?

beaversnipe is right on the 24 hour period, I wasn't thinking through the question. you can have a whole season of hunting in the freezer at once if you follow the daily limits.

So are you saying that once I get home I can legally have a limit in the freezer for each day of season? Can someone post a link that clarifies this.

Sure, u can even have 2x or 3x the DAILY limit (when someone else gave u the birds) in your freezer.
So on day 10 into the season u should buy another freezer. Im talking about birds though. Elk and deer, dont know

I don't like waterfowl enough to have multiple freezers full of em. I have always interpreted the law that I could legally ipossess at home in the freezer a daily bag limit for each day of the season. However, reading the Texas migratory pamphlet it is not real clear. Someone please post a link to something that clearly states the law in this regard.

Here's the federal regs for possession. If you read it exactly as written, you can only have a "possession limit" in your freezer, which is generally 3 daily bag limits. Your possession doesn't change until the conditions below are met. Now, do most people do it that way? no....but we also drive above the speed limit.

http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?SID....d&rgn=div6

20.33 Possession limit.

No person shall possess more migratory game birds taken in the United States than the possession limit or the aggregate possession limit, whichever applies.

20.39 Termination of possession.

Subject to all other requirements of this part, the possession of birds taken by any hunter shall be deemed to have ceased when such birds have been delivered by him to another person as a gift; or have been delivered by him to a post office, a common carrier, or a migratory bird preservation facility and consigned for transport by the Postal Service or a common carrier to some person other than the hunter.
