Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Department of the Interior's new rules on migratory bird hunting. GAO found that: (1) the final framework rule would establish the hunting season frameworks from which State conservation agencies select dates and other options available to them; (2) the late seasons and bag and possession limits rule would prescribe hunting seasons, hours, areas, and daily bag limits and possession limits for general waterfowls seasons; and (3) Interior complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rules.
