On Saturday, February 6, 2021, a "joint" Youth and Veterans/Active Military Hunting Day will be held statewide. This day will give properly licensed youth hunters, veterans and active duty military personnel the opportunity to share a unique hunting experience together. The following Saturday, February 13, 2021, a statewide Veterans/Active Military Hunting Day will be held.

Active duty military personnel includes members of Armed Forces on active duty, including National Guard and Reserves (other than active duty for training). Veterans includes those who served in the active military, naval or air service and who were discharged or released therefrom under conditions other than dishonorable. Participants in Veterans/Active Military Waterfowl Hunting Days must carry while hunting one of the documents which applies to their status to be eligible to participate:

1. Active military identification card
2. Copy of honorable discharge certificate (DD-214)

Bag limits are the same as those allowed in the regular season in each zone except the scaup limit is 2 per day.
