CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s Fish and Game Department is holding a public meeting on proposed season dates and bag limits for the 2016-2017 waterfowl hunting season.

This year, the public will have a longer comment period and dates will published earlier in the summer, well before the seasons begin.

New Hampshire’s proposed waterfowl season is very similar to last year’s, except for the change in sea ducks days. The sea duck season was reduced from 107 days to 60 in order to reduce harvest following an analysis by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that suggested sea ducks were being over-harvested.

The meeting is scheduled at 6 p.m. Tuesday at department headquarters in Concord.
