The Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission voted unanimously to approve the changes in the early wood duck/teal season. The changes were made due to the blue wing teal populations as well as the surrounding states longer early teal only seasons.
The season will be extended from a normal five day season to a three year experimental nine day season.During the first five days of the season (Sept. 13-17) the total bag limit will be six ducks and not to exceed two wood ducks per bag limit. The last for days of the season (Sept. 18-21) will be teal only hunting with a daily bag limit of six teal. Hunters are encouraged to be able to readily identify the ducks before shooting. Look for the new hunting guides available now at all license agents.
