DNR approves longer mourning dove, early teal duck hunt

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Wisconsin hunters are about to have a longer mourning dove season, and an early teal-only duck hunt.

The state Natural Resources Board approved both changes Wednesday at its meeting in Milwaukee.

The teal-only duck hunt runs from September 1st through 7th, before the start of the normal duck season. Only green and blue-winged teal can be taken, with a daily bag limit of six.

Also, 20 days will be added to the dove season starting this fall. It will end on November 29th instead of the 9th.

The DNR's migratory bird game ecologist, Kent Van Horn, says duck hunters have asked for their changes for many years. Wisconsin has around 130,000 migratory bird hunters.
