Great news: Under the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Proposed 2020-2021 Frameworks for Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations, U.S. waterfowlers will again enjoy liberal season lengths this fall, including 60 days in the Atlantic and Mississippi flyways, 74 days in the Central Flyway and 107 days in the Pacific Flyway. The frameworks, which are based on spring 2019 breeding population surveys, 2018-2019 hunter harvest estimates and other data, include a seven-duck limit in the Pacific Flyway, and a six-duck limit across all others.

However, certain species-specific limits will remain conservative or see further reductions.

The most significant change is sure to disappoint diver hunters: Due to a 10 percent decline among bluebills in the 2019 Waterfowl Breeding Population and Habitat Survey, limits have been lowered in all flyways. The Atlantic Flyway will permit one bluebill daily for 40 days of the season, and two daily for 20 days. Mississippi Flyway hunters may shoot two bluebills daily for 45 days, and one per day during the other portion. The Central Flyway limit is one bluebill per day for the duration of the season, while Pacific Flyway hunters may bag two daily for 86 days.

  • Federal Ammunition Introduces New Black Cloud TSS 20 Gauge
    Federal Ammunition Introduces New Black Cloud TSS 20 Gauge U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Duck and goose hunting entered a deadly new age with the introduction of Black Cloud TSS. Now hunters can get that same performance in a new 20-gauge load that blends No. 3 FLITESTOPPER Steel with No. 9 18 g/cc Tungsten Super Shot. Shipments of this new product have begun to arrive at dealers. A full 56 percent denser than lead and more than double the density of steel, TSS pellets maintain velocity farther, hit harder and penetrate deeper than any waterfowl payload ever has. The swarm of shot leaves no chance for escape with the FLITECONTROL FLEX wad, which opens from the rear for a controlled release of the payload and the deadliest, most consistent patterns.
