The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF) has designated Saturday, Nov. 21 as one of the 2020-2021 hunting season’s special waterfowl hunting days for youths, veterans and active military personnel. The second of the two special waterfowl hunting days is scheduled for Feb. 6, 2021.

On those days, military personnel on active duty, veterans (as defined in section 101 of U.S. Code: Title 38) and youths under age 16 who are accompanied by a licensed adult hunter may hunt for waterfowl statewide, said WFF Migratory Gamebird Coordinator Seth Maddox. Regular waterfowl season shooting hours, bag limits, legal arms and ammunitions apply to the special days. Hunting area rules and regulations also apply.

The special waterfowl days were previously reserved for youth hunters only. Veterans and active duty military personnel can also hunt waterfowl on these special days outside of the regular season, thanks to the passage of the federal John D. Dingell Jr. Conservation, Management and Recreation Act.
