(UNDATED) - The 2014 early migratory bird season dates have been submitted to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service by the Indiana DNR as listed below.

As in other years, these dates are not final until the USFWS approves them, which typically happens by the end of August. The season dates fall within the framework provided by USFWS, so no changes are anticipated. A later release will notify you of approval or change.

Indiana's requested seasons have never been altered by USFWS after submission; however, there is always the slight possibility of change. Therefore, the dates below should not be interpreted as being final.

Statewide, 15-bird bag/45-bird possession limit: Sept. 1-Oct. 19, Nov. 1-9, and Dec. 13-Jan. 11.
