Migratory Bird Hunting; Proposed Frameworks for Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations
Document Number: 2018-02112
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-02
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (hereinafter Service or we) is proposing to establish the 2018-19 hunting regulations for certain migratory game birds. We annually prescribe frameworks, or outer limits, for dates and times when hunting may occur and the number of birds that may be taken and possessed in hunting seasons. These frameworks are necessary to allow State selections of seasons and limits and to allow recreational harvest at levels compatible with population and habitat conditions.
