Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Fish and Wildlife Service's (FWS) new rules on migratory bird hunting. GAO noted that: (1) the final frameworks rule establishes the late-season frameworks from which states, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands may select dates and other options available to them for the 1998-99 migratory bird hunting seasons; (2) the late seasons and bag and possession limits rule would prescribe hunting seasons, hours, areas, and daily bag limits and possession limits for species subject to late-season regulations and early seasons that states previously deferred; and (3) FWS complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
