SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the September 28, 2000, Federal Register (65 FR 58314), we published a final rule prescribing hunting seasons, hours, areas, and daily bag and possession limits for general waterfowl seasons, certain other migratory bird seasons, and those early seasons for which States previously deferred selection. The rule contained errors in the introductory language for several sections and entries for Florida, Idaho, and Tennessee, which are discussed briefly below and corrected by this notice.

We received public comment on the proposed rules for the seasons and limits established by the September 28 final rule. We addressed these comments in the August 23, 2000, (65 FR 51496) and September 27, 2000, (65 FR 58152) Federal Register. The corrections are typographical in nature and involve no change in substance in the contents of the prior proposed and final rules.
