2014 Early Teal Season 2014
As most of us are well aware, severe hunting pressure results in movement by birds into area's where they are not harassed and shot at. The net effect has been definite reduction in the number of locally raised birds using our area.
I have no reason to believe the situation will change. Reading the year 1 DNR report makes in quite clear that the early teal season will be with us for good. Just another reason I pursue my QUALITY waterfowl hunting out of state.
Depending which zone you hunt, exterior goose concludes Dec 16 in the north + Horicon P2, Dec 21 in the South and Jan 8 in the River zone. You would have 7 days to remove blind behind any of those dates.
I do not think that teal season affected the regular season but the water going up 5 feet above normal water stage did. It was a poor opening of duck season. But the rest of the season went well.
