Title: Migratory Bird Hunting; 2022–23 Migratory Game Bird Hunting Regulations 

This rulemaking action will establish annual hunting regulations for certain migratory game birds for the 2022-23 hunting season. The FWS annually prescribes outside limits (frameworks) within which States may select hunting seasons. This rulemaking action is conducted under the direction of the Service Migratory Bird Regulations Committee and the Flyway Councils. It describes proposed regulatory alternatives for the 2022-23 duck hunting seasons and requests proposals from Indian Tribes that wish to establish special migratory game bird hunting regulations on Federal Indian reservations and ceded lands.
