Changes in Regs 2009-2010

I noticed the limit changes for Pins went up from 2 to 4 and Canvasback is now 2 (was zero). It will be the first year since I've been hunting that canvasback are legal. They sure are a pretty bird.

Arizona Duck Hunters,
Please note that when talking about limits, there is the bag limit and the possession limit.

The bag limit in '09-'10 for pintails is 2 and canvasback is 1.
The 'possession limit' is 4 pins and 2 cans.
And there's more but, check out the regs.

The post above is correct but, refers to possession limit (which isn't what you can take in a day...and not what you want to be caught with in the field).

But please...read the regs yourself and get the information straight from the source.

Best of luck this year!!
