Waterfowl rules the same as last year except...

This is good news you can take two Pintail ducks this season.
BISMARCK — North Dakota’s 2010 duck season will be similar to last year, although the Game and Fish Department has increased the limit on pintails and eliminated a waterfowl rest area.

Opening day for North Dakota residents is Sept. 25 for ducks, geese, coots and mergansers. Nonresidents can hunt waterfowl in North Dakota beginning Oct. 2.

Hunters can take six ducks per day with the following restrictions: five mallards of which two may be hens, three wood ducks, two scaup, two redheads, two pintails — an increase of one from last year — and one canvasback. For ducks, the possession limit is twice the daily limit.
