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.
