ANNAPOLIS -- The Department of Natural Resources has liberalized its original hunting season proposals for both Canada geese and regular ducks.
The DNR added four days to the Canada goose season, two of which will allow a bag limit of two birds. The dates are Nov. 14-23 and Dec. 3-Jan. 12 -- and beginning Dec. 10 hunters will be allowed two Canada geese a day.
This revised proposal offers an extra weekend for Canada goose shooting. An extra weekend also is included in the revised regular duck season, which will be Oct. 19-20, Nov. 22-23 and Dec. 11-Jan. 5.
Other seasons are as follows: Snow geese -- Oct. 17-Nov. 23 and Dec. 3-Feb. 9 (the first time in many decades a waterfowl season has extended into February); Brant -- Nov. 14-23 and Dec. 11-Jan. 19; Black duck -- Nov. 22-23 and Dec. 11-Jan. 5; Sea duck -- Oct. 12-Jan. 19.
