SALEM, Ore.--The “What’s New in 2013-2014” section at the top of page six of the printed 2013-14 Oregon Game Bird Regulations is incorrect.
The canvasback daily bag limit within the daily duck bag limit should be two, not three. So the third bullet point at the top of page six should read “The canvasback daily bag limit has been increased to two.”
The canvasback daily bag limit is correct on page 16 of the regulations. It has also been corrected in the online version of the 2013-2014 Oregon Game Bird Regulations: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/resources/hunting/upland_bird/docs/2013-14_oregon_game_bird_regs.pdf
Duck hunters should take note of the error. Duck hunting season opens Oct. 5 in eastern Oregon and Oct. 12 in western Oregon and the Columbia Basin area.
