Hunters from 20 States of the Central and Mississippi Flyways participated in an experimental 9-day teal hunting season in September 1965. During this special season, hunters were required to obtain a free permit and could shoot four teal a day (blue-winged teal, green-winged teal, and cinnamon teal, singly or in the aggregate) and have eight in possession. Data were obtained by means of a mail questionnaire survey, a teal wing collection survey, and a hunter performance (spy-blind) survey. [Abstract provides a variety of statistics on hunting permits, and breaks down the numbers of various sorts of waterfowl harvested.] These data suggest that the experimental teal season in 1965 provided a number of hunters a specified number of days of recreation without adversely affecting the continental population of any waterfowl species. Additional data are needed , perhaps from three special teal seasons, in order to establish whether the bagged ducks add to or reduce nonhunting mortality for the teal species involved.
