Waterfowl Hunting Regulations
Migratory bird hunting seasons and bag limits must conform to frameworks set by the US Fish & Wildlife Service. States select their hunting seasons within these established frameworks. Based on public comments, Game Commission staff will prepare and present recommended waterfowl and migratory bird seasons, bag limits and related criteria to the USFWS for final approval. Final selections are typically made by mid-August. Shortly thereafter, the agency will post the annual brochure outlining the seasons and bag limits for waterfowl and migratory bird seasons.
