DNR to hold early teal hunting season
LANSING— This year marks the second year of Michigan’s experimental early teal hunting season. The season runs Sept. 1-7. These small ducks, especially blue-winged teal, are some of the earliest duck species to migrate each fall.
This statewide teal-only season is now possible because of growing teal populations. Hunters may take six teal per day and hunt from sunrise to sunset.
Accurate identification of ducks is essential during this special season, because only teal are legal to harvest.
