WOOD DUCK/TEAL SEASON CHANGES
The Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission voted unanimously to increase
the early wood duck and teal hunting season daily bag limit from 4 to 6
(no more than two wood ducks) and also allow the addition of teal-only
hunting days to this season.
In late June, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service approved the Tennessee
Wildlife Resources Agency’s and the Mississippi Flyway Council’s request
for these two changes.
The requests had been made in response to the high blue-winged teal
populations and similar recent expansions in states with September
teal-only hunting seasons. The change will allow the addition of four
teal-only hunting days.
Homra Guide Service
The wood duck and teal season is Sept. 13-17. The teal-only hunting
dates are Sept. 18-21.
The TWRA staff worked for months with the Mississippi and Atlantic Flyways
and the USFWS to bring this request forward. The request is based on
biological information in a 2013 report made available to the flyway
councils. These changes will be experimental for three years.
The TFWC’s next regular meeting will be held in Jackson on Aug. 28-29 at
the West Tennessee Research and Education Center. Topping the agenda will
be the season setting process for winter waterfowl and bag limits.
