a Hunting seasons for the Lake Champlain Zone are decided on by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Management Board following public meetings in Whitehall, New York and Burlington, Vermont.
b Youth Days are additional days for Junior Hunters only. Young hunters, 12 to 15 years of age, possessing a junior hunting license may hunt ducks, coots, mergansers, Canada geese, and brant on 2 special days in each zone. Daily bag limits for ducks are the maximum allowed during the regular duck season, and 3 per day for Canada geese. Young hunters must be accompanied by a licensed (including current HIP registration and duck stamp) adult hunter, but the adult may not shoot any birds unless the respective regular season is open.
c Crippled sea ducks may be taken under power in the special sea duck area, only.
d Snow goose seasons include both the regular hunting season and the Conservation Order that runs from January 16 - April 15 in all zones (except Long Island).
