These changes are designed to slow the rate of herd growth, while still allowing herds to increase.

As for waterfowl, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) will vote on regulations in April, which is six months sooner than pervious years.

The youth waterfowl age limit has been lowered to include more young hunters. Anyone who is 17 or younger may now participate in the youth waterfowl hunts. The previous age limit was 15 or younger. The youth waterfowl weekend is Oct. 7-8.
