The combined early wood duck and teal seasons open Sept. 10-14; after that teal-only continues on Sept. 15-18. The daily combined bag limit is six (no more than two wood ducks allowed).
This is the third and final year for the expanded season for teal. Previously it was only the five-day wood duck/teal hunt with a daily bag limit of four ducks. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recommended the experimental season in 2014 because the blue-wing teal population was at record numbers.
Given that, smart money would be on a repeat of the extended season next year. The 2016 numbers for blue-winged and green-winged teal are even better than in 2014: 34 percent above the long term average and more than twice the LTA, respectively.
