The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed liberal hunting season lengths and bag limits for the upcoming 2014-2015 late waterfowl seasons. Duck hunting season lengths of 60 days were proposed for the Atlantic and Mississippi Flyways, with 74 days for the Central Flyway (with an additional 23 days in the High Plains areas) and 107 days for the Pacific Flyway.

States will select their individual seasons from within the federal frameworks that establish the earliest beginning and latest ending dates and the maximum season length and bag limits.
