Teal season underway in state; get in extra hunting now
Early teal season opened Friday, Sept. 15. Duck hunters get a chance for an early start on their duck hunting as they head to coastal marshes, bayou backwaters and shallow water haunts in search of migrating blue-winged teal. These fast-flying ducks are among the earliest birds to migrate south and provide fast action for sportsmen.
The teal season in Mississippi runs from September 15-30 with a bag limit of four teal per day.
Ducks Unlimited biologists have received reports of improved habitat conditions in the U.S./Canadian prairies. They also predict cooler weather to the north will push large concentrations of blue-winged teal south to provide premiere hunting opportunities.
