The early Canada goose season is Sept. 11 to 12, in the portion of Iowa north of U.S. Hwy. 20. The daily bag limit is two geese with a possession limit of four.

The early duck season is Sept. 18 to 22 in the north duck zone and Sept. 25 to 26 in the south duck zone. The bag limits in the early duck season will be the same as the regular duck season, which will be established at the August 12 meeting of the Natural Resource Commission.
