MADISON — The Wisconsin Natural Resources Board has approved an early teal hunting season and an extended dove season.

The board voted Wednesday to offer the early teal-only duck hunting season beginning in September 2014. The board also approved adding 20 days to the end of the current 70-day dove hunting season, ending it on Nov. 29 instead of Nov. 9.

The early teal season will take place before the regular duck season and run from Sept. 1 through Sept. 7. Only blue-winged and green-winged teal may be hunted and there will be a daily bag limit of six.

Kent Van Horn, the Department of Natural Resources migratory game bird ecologist, says duck hunters have been asking for the changes for years.

There are about 130,000 migratory bird hunters in Wisconsin.
