I've read that the DFG recommended a moderate season to the commission at this meeting. Cal will be the only state in the flyway with a moderate season if the commission votes for it at the Aug. 30 meeting.
This is what I have heard:
Balance of State: Both duck & goose season start 11/2 and run straight through to 1/26. Pintail, split season, (1 bird) 11/2-11/24 & 12/21-1/26. DFG recommended Cans at 12/21 - 1/26 but USFWS closed the season. Seven Ducks - five mallards of which two may be hens.
(NE CA) 10/12 - 1/5 for duck & 10/12 - 1/19 for geese. Full goose season for whitefronts. Pintail season 10/12 -12/8 (1 bird). Seven ducks with five mallards and two hens. DFG recommend Cans 10/12 - 11/17 but USFWS closed season.
