Talkin’ Teal on TV

Nebraska’s early teal duck hunting season opener occupies center stage on my Weekly TV Outdoor Report airing LIVE Thursday evening at 6 p.m. CST on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News during the sportscast. Fast-flying teal, such as these blue-winged teal pictured below, present a real challenge to the Nebraska waterfowl hunter!

Proper waterfowl identification is critical during the special season because only teal are legal. This is especially crucial in the experimental early teal hunting season area of northern Nebraska where the harvest of hunters will be closely monitored and noted.
