The length of the early teal season (or whether or not a season is held at all) depends on the number of blue-wings in the continental population. If the annual waterfowl survey places the blue-wing population at or above 4.7 million breeding ducks, the early season runs 16 days. If the population is between 3.3 and 4.7 million, the season lasts 9 days. If the estimate dips below 3.3 million, the early hunt is discontinued until the population rebounds above this figure. (In 2002, the population count was 4.2 million, so the season ran 9 days.) Blue-wings, green-wings and cinnamon teal are legal targets, though blue-wings make up the vast majority of the bag. The daily limit is four teal in any combination. Hunters in Tennessee, Kentucky and Florida are privy to an early teal and wood duck season, which is five days long and offers a bag limit of four teal or wood ducks, not to include more than two of the latter.
