The duck season regulations have been approved by the California Fish & Game Commission. Once again the state will have a liberal season and liberal bag limits. The General Season will be 100 days starting on Oct 20, 2012 and going to Jan 27, 2013 with a bag limit of 7 ducks which may contain 7 mallards of which only 2 can be hens, 2 pintails, 1 canvasback and 2 redheads. This year they have increased the number of scaup in the daily bag limit to 7. Scaup had a very good hatch this year therefore the increase in the limit from 3 to 7.
