The migratory bird season has been set for 2018 in New Jersey. Every year US Fish and Wildlife Services partners with flyway councils to develop these regulations. Some noteworthy changes this year in New Jersey are:
- The pintail daily bag limit was increased to 2 birds.
- The black duck daily bag limit will remain at 2 birds, similar to last year.
- The season for woodcock will be longer than previous years since states like New Jersey with statutory Sunday hunting closures were given compensatory days by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
- 2018 is the third year for the new federal regulatory process where migratory bird season dates are set earlier in the year.
