In order to have a duck hunting season in New Hampshire requires lots of work each year by Fish and Game wildlife biologists to band a few hundred ducks. Yes duck hunting falls under Federal rules by the Fish and Wildlife Service and part of the requirements is to band some ducks in each state each year.
