SUAMICO – Duck hunters have just a few days left to get ready for the upcoming Teal hunting season.
This year marks the first of a three-year experimental early teal season.
The Wisconsin Natural Resources board passed the proposal in June 25.
Experts say the continental population of the blue-winged teal has grown in recent years.
Officials say the three-year experiment will determine if Wisconsin is granted an operational early teal season.
The parameters include:
- Only one blue-winged and green-winged teal can be harvested.
- Daily bag limit is 6 teal
The season begins on Labor Day and runs through Sept. 7.
Shooting hours for opening day runs from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Hours for all other days of the season are sunrise to 7 p.m.
