In the United States, each and every state has major accountability and authority above the hunting of wildlife that resides inside state boundaries. State wildlife companies that sell hunting licenses are the greatest supply of data regarding hunting seasons, places open/closed to hunting, etc. Hunting of migratory birds such as ducks and geese is managed cooperatively by state fish and wildlife companies and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Support. Migratory waterfowl hunters need to possess each a state hunting license and a Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp (Duck Stamp), and each and every hunter requirements a Harvest Information Plan (HIP) number for each and every state in which they hunt migratory birds.

Each and every state creates laws and codes governing the season dates and species, based mostly on a complicated method such as citizen input, a state fish and game company or department, and usually an independent game council. This method updates a game code for each and every state which outlines all rules and rules such as hunting seasons. In each and every of the 50 states, abstracts of the greater game code are then presented in the official state hunting rules for that given yr. Season dates are usually timed to arise when the population is at its highest. It avoids the peak breeding period when members of a species are especially vulnerable, and avoids any disruption to mating, which could affect productivity.
Closed season is the time of the yr during which hunting an animal of a given species is contrary to law. Normally, closed seasons are developed to safeguard a species when it is most vulnerable or, at times, to safeguard animals during their breeding season.

A closed season is enforced by local conservation law for the conservation of the species and wildlife management; any hunting during closed season is punishable by law and termed as illegal hunting or poaching.
