Hunters will be able to find exact season dates, zone maps, and shooting hours in 2019-20 Migratory Game Bird Brochure later in spring and well in advance of any of the upcoming seasons.

Ducks — Daily pintail limit was reduced form two to one

Light Geese — Butte County and portions of Bonneville, Jefferson and Clark counties west of Interstate 15 were shifted into a different zone to allow late winter/spring hunting opportunities.
