ATLANTA (AP) - State officials have approved Georgia bird hunting seasons.
The September Canada goose season will stretch the full month of September. The initial teal season will run from Sept. 8 to Sept. 23.
There are two windows for duck hunting. The first is Nov. 17 through Nov. 25. The second, longer season begins Dec. 8 and ends Jan. 27, 2013.
A full schedule for all waterfowl, including daily limits, is available online at www. Gohuntgeorgia.com/node/2752.
The Georgia Board of Natural Resources determines the seasons within rules of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Waterfowl hunters in Georgia must have a state hunting license, federal duck stamp, Georgia waterfowl conservation license and an HIP permit. Licenses are available online at www.georgiawildlife.com and at more than 800 locations around the state.
