The Waterfowl Zone in which you are hunting determines the seasons, bag limits, and possession limits. One of the zones has several Special Management Areas (SMA). In a few SMAs, there are special seasons for hunting certain geese like snows and brant. In others, waterfowl seasons are delayed, closed, or close early. Finally, the daily bag and possession limits are often affected. For the specifics, follow the links below.
