(8-14-14) Nebraska will have an early teal duck season next month over the entire state.
The 2014 season dates are Sept. 6-14 in the High Plains zone - roughly the northern half of the state - and Sept. 6-21 in the Low Plains zone - the southern half. The Nebraska Game and Park says the northern half of Nebraska previously had been closed to an early teal season.
The commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will monitor hunters' attempt to shoot other species during this year's experimental season. Hunters who shoot or attempt to shoot ducks other than teal will be subject to prosecution.
