    I heard what was proposed for next year and have not found out anything concrete yet.

    New federal frameworks allow regular duck season to extend to the last day of January. Previous frameworks required duck seasons to end on the last Sunday of January, which could be as early as Jan. 25 in some years.

    The season proposals include new combination youth/veteran days, in which veterans of the nation’s armed forces may participate in the hunt.

    Commissioner Andrew Parker of Little Rock asked about extending those hunts to two full weekends for youths and veterans, but U.S. Fish and Wildlife frameworks allow only two days outside of normal waterfowl seasons for these special hunts.

    This season’s daily waterfowl limits will remain unchanged, with the exception of a decrease to one pintail per day and an increase to two canvasbacks per day. Both of these changes are adjustments in federal frameworks based on fluctuating populations of the species.

    Nonresidents will be able to hunt on Arkansas’s most popular wildlife management areas with the addition of 5-day Nonresident Waterfowl WMA Permits, which are specific to each WMA. There is no limit to the amount of permits a nonresident may purchase, but they will be valid only on the following days of the season: Nov. 23-Dec. 2, 2019; Dec. 27, 2019-Jan. 5, 2020; and Jan. 22-31, 2020. This regulation was passed last September, but implementation was delayed until this season.

    Mourning and Eurasian collared-dove season opens Sunday, Sept. 1. Federal regulations will not allow the season to begin before Sept. 1, which will prevent the traditional opening day, the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend.

    This year’s dove season will be Sept. 1-Oct. 27, 2019, and Dec. 14, 2019-Jan. 15, 2020.
