Two amendments that could alter the upcoming waterfowl hunting season will be presented during the next Game, Fish and Parks Commissioner's meeting that will be held Aug. 6 in Aberdeen.
The first proposed amendment would decrease the daily bag limit for scaup, which is a common species of duck, from three to two, contingent upon approval by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The second would increase the number of hunting days for white-fronted geese from 72 to 86 consecutive days. This amendment is also contingent upon approval by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The reasoning behind the proposed amendments is to provide more days for people to go duck hunting. By reducing the limits per day, the wildlife management plan for ducks can still be achieved.
