MISSOURI — Game bird hunters across the nation are going to see some changes to the hunting regulations for the upcoming 2019-2020 season.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) announced that seven major changes will be made to the game bird regulations.

While most of the new regulations primarily affect the eastern half of the country, three of the changes will be felt in Missouri.

According to the USFWS, the final date for duck hunting will be moved to January 31 from the last Sunday of the month. Hunters that are searching for the Northern Pintail will now have a daily bag limit of one bird.

States are also allowed to offer up to two extra hunting days for veterans and active military.
