2013-2014 Waterfowl Hunting Seasons and Upland Game Regulations Changes Adopted

 

The California Fish and Game Commission adopted the 2013-2014 waterfowl and upland game bird hunting regulations on Aug. 7. Possession limits were increased from double to triple the daily bag limit for waterfowl, band-tailed pigeon, doves, snipe, pheasant, quail, sooty/ruffed grouse and chukar. A new late season hunt for white-fronted geese and white geese was established in the Northeastern Zone, as well as a new early archery season for pheasants statewide.

Additionally, in response to the increasing invasion of Eurasian collared-doves, the Commission authorized year-round hunting in Imperial County (where the species is most abundant), beginning Sept. 1st, 2013.

Specific changes are as follows:

Ducks Seasons

• The Balance of State and Southern California zones will be open from Oct. 19, 2013 through Jan. 26, 2014. Scaup season will be open from Nov. 2, 2013 through Jan. 26, 2014.

• Early archery pheasant season will be open from Oct. 12, 2013 through Nov. 3, 2013. Archery hunting for pheasants is not allowed on Type A and B Wildlife Areas.

• Eurasian collared-dove will be open year-round in Imperial County after Sept. 1. Existing seasons re-main in effect for the rest of the state.

• Sage-grouse hunting permits were authorized in North Mono (30) and South Mono (25) zones. No permits were authorized for either Lassen Zone following large-scale habitat loss resulting from the 2012 Rush Fire.
