Federal regulations for migratory waterfowl on PGC website

Harrisburg — The Pennsylvania Game Commission has posted a synopsis of federal regulations that govern migratory game bird and waterfowl seasons to assist hunters in finding answers to questions.

To review the information, go to the Game Commission's website (www.pgc.state.pa.us), put your cursor on "Hunt/Trap" in the menu bar at the top of the page, click on "Hunting," scroll down and click on "Waterfowl Hunting and Conservation," and then scroll down and click on "Federal Waterfowl Hunting Regulations Synopsis" in the "Waterfowl Hunting Regulations" section.

Additional information can be found on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service website (www.fws.gov/hunting/whatres.html), where a complete version of the federal regulations (50 CFR Part 20) are posted. When state law differs from the federal law, hunters must comply with the more restrictive law.
