History of the Act

  • The Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act, which was put into action on July 1, 1934, authorized the annual distribution of what is popularly known as the Duck Stamp.
  • In 1976, Congress changed the official name to the Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp.

Purpose

  • The Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act was enacted because conservationists were shocked by a rapid decrease in wild ducks and geese.
  • PROBLEMS:
  • overshooting
  • Protracted drought in the heart of the waterfowl breeding area, which lasted through the early thirties.
  • Drainage had emptied millions of acres of marsh nesting sites.

Basic Law

  • Under the Act, any person who hunts ducks, geese, swans or other and is 16 years of age or older must carry a current Duck stamp on which he has written his signature in ink. This qualifies the hunter as a legal wildfowl, provided he has a state-hunting license.
slide5

Effects

  • The Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act created a continuing source of funds for waterfowl habitat acquisition and restoration by requiring that sportsmen purchase a Duck Stamp before they hunt waterfowl.
  • Also, the population of wild waterfowl grew at an accelerated rate, creating more opportunity to harvest birds.
