This is probably an issue that needs to be addressed by someone at LDWF. Let's say you hunt Saturday and Sunday, staying at your camp in between. If you shoot ducks on Saturday, when you leave them at the camp to hunt on Sunday, the ducks probably should be tagged because they are at that point NOT IN YOUR POSSESSION. People come and go at hunting camps and if checked there, everyone may not be present, which could cause those remaining at the camp to be ticketed for being over the limit if there are no tags on the first day's birds.
Once you finished hunting on Sunday, let's say that you now have 12 ducks (6 Saturday & 6 Sunday) and are leaving the camp to return to your car/home. At that point all of the ducks ARE IN YOUR POSSESSION, so is the actual tag a necessity? That is the vague area. But if you already prepared the tag, just bring it with you anyway as a precaution, but the actual requirement of a tag at that specific point is somewhat unclear in the regulations.
