Here's a link for the tenative duck hunting dates.

http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/pdf/2012/12-13mig_seasons.pdf

The opening day for ducks in the Coastal Zone is Nov 10th, last year it was Nov 1st. That seems like an excellent move, especially in the Southern part of the Coastal Zone. More ducks should be available with the later start date.
