House bill would extend federal duck season

A House bill would add four days to the 2018-2019 federal duck hunting season.

Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, and Rep. Jack Bergman, R-Michigan, introduced a bill (H.R. 6013) that would designate Jan. 31 as the end of the federal duck hunting season by modifying the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. The 2018-2019 hunting season framework released by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service earlier this month specified the last Sunday in January as the end of the season. The bill in the House of Representatives would add an additional four days to the end of the 2018-2019 federal season. It would also designate special hunting days for youth, veterans and active military personnel on the first weekend in February.
