WE WANT TO KNOW: POSSIBLE “BONUS” TEAL BAG LIMIT FOR 2014?

WE WANT TO KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS:

*CORRECTION.  We originally listed the “MN DNR” as the body considering the bonus teal.  It’s actually the Mississippi Flyway that is considering it.  We apologize for the confusion. 

 

The Mississippi Flyway is considering a “bonus” teal bag limit during the first 16 days of the regular waterfowl season.

Here’s how it would work:

SD_Hunting_C2_300x250For the first 16 days of the regular waterfowl season hunters will have the regular 6 duck bag limit.  They would then be allowed two “bonus” blue-winged teal in addition, essentially increasing that bag limit to 8, as long as they don’t go over the species-specific limits.

Because of the season split structure that Minnesota has, the actual days for each of the three zones could vary, but that will be explained when the decision is made.

But this would give hunters the chance to manage the blue-winged teal population without having the early teal season that hunters haven’t been largely in favor for.  Blue-winged teal are usually the first ducks to head south so it would also give hunters a chance at a few more before they leave the state.

They’re currently asking for input on it, so please comment below or on our Facebook page on whether or not you’d be in favor of this.
