1958 HUNTING SEASONS
September 01, 1958
As the new hunting year gets under way, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, with the assistance of the game commissions of the U.S. and Canada, presents a guide to open seasons across the continent. The dates which appear in this guide are the earliest and latest on which specific game may be hunted. Within this general framework, actual seasons often vary according to local conditions. The average length of each of these seasons is listed after the general dates, followed by the daily bag limits on small game. To avoid delays and disappointments, sportsmen should consult local regulations for the specific area in which they intend to hunt before planning a trip. These regulations may be obtained by writing to the individual game commissions located in the cities listed after each state.
