In other business, the Commission voted to establish hunting regulations for September teal and September special resident Canada goose, dove, rail, gallinule, woodcock and common snipe. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service considers populations and habitats for establishing hunting seasons on migratory game bird seasons that open prior to Oct. 1 at an annual meeting in June each year. The Service publishes the federal hunting season frameworks for these species soon after this meeting, and state conservation agencies like the Wildlife Department can then make their season selections within the federal framework guidelines.
