    The season will be the same as last year, 10/6-10/28, split 11/3-12/09

    there will be a late Goose season ,one week end of December.

    Mallard limit is most likely going from 4 to 2 for the Atlantic flyway.


    This was the last year for the task force, a computer Matrix will be setting the season from now on. There will be no changes to the zone. The next year possible for a change is the 2020 season but don't count on any changes.

    Good luck

    Here's some information from the CT Waterfowl Biologist about the mallard limit reduction for 2019-2020.

    I believe I've read that it's for all the Atlantic Flyway.

    That thing from CT makes sense but says the reduction will take place in the 2019-20 season.

    Like I said above "2019-2020" season is when the change would take place. The Mass. Biologist also made me aware of the possible mallard reduction for 2019-20, but for this year all he said was a change in woodcock season length for Mass. to compensate for no Sunday hunting and a change in goose limits for us.
