Wa­ter­fowl hunt­ing sea­son dates and reg­u­la­tions have been ap­proved for the 2013-2014 sea­son by the Board of Nat­u­ral Re­sources.

“This year sev­eral changes have oc­curred with the USFWS wa­ter­fowl reg­u­la­tory frame­works,” said Greg Balk­com, state wa­ter­fowl bi­ol­o­gist for the Wildlife Re­sources Di­vi­sion. “In Ge­or­gia, we have seized this chance to max­i­mize op­por­tu­nity for our wa­ter­fowl hunters."

Some need-to-know dates and de­tails for wa­ter­fowl sea­son are the Septem­ber Canada goose sea­son (Sept. 7-29) and the Septem­ber teal sea­son (Sept. 14-29), with the teal bag limit in­creas­ing to six birds. An ad­di­tional two weeks of Canada goose hunt­ing was added Oct. 12-27. Hunt­ing sea­son for ducks is Nov. 23 to Dec. 1 and Dec. 7 to Jan. 26, 2014.

Youth Wa­ter­fowl Days are Nov. 16-17, when those ages 15 and younger may hunt spe­cific mi­gra­tory birds. Young hunters must be ac­com­pa­nied by a non-hunt­ing adult.

In or­der to hunt wa­ter­fowl, hunters must have a hunt­ing li­cense, fed­eral duck stamp, Ge­or­gia wa­ter­fowl con­ser­va­tion li­cense and a HIP per­mit.
