Plan Your Entire Bird Hunting Season Right Here
The bulk of the 2012-2013 hunting regulations have been published. Any changes to season length, limits or license fees are highlighted in red.
One of the biggest frustrations for bird hunters is the guantlet of rules and regulations incurred when crossing those faintly marked state lines following your dog in pursuit of an elusive covey.
Each state seems to have its own hunting vocabulary, its own regulation novel published on varying dates, its own license terms, permits, fees... truly maddening. Not to mention that all this information is tucked away in different corners of the web, some easily accessible and user friendly, others the equivalent of mental torture.
The good news is Ultimate Upland is taking an apples-to-apples view of every state from the bird hunter's perspective. We've done the hours of research and digging through the clutter in order to give you the best snapshot of how one state compares to the next in bird hunting terms.
Once you decide where you are interested in hunting, we've also included a link to their website -- the small game section whenever possible -- and a separate link to their online licensing systems. The minimum state requirements for hunting just upland birds are broken down, easy to find and easy to compare to other venues. So now you can spend less time searching the web for cagey information, and more time in the field after evasive birds.
Let us know what other information you'd like us to collect or include, our research is ongoing and we'll continue to expand this state comparison.
*prior to hunting, always verify all local rules and regulations with the appropriate state agencies because these laws are continually changing and are often area specific
