Conditional Season/Zone 1 Harvest Limit: If the harvest limit for the early-season is not reached prior to November 26 and after the late-season has been closed (due to quota reached) for 5 consecutive days, the early-season will reopen until the Zone 1 early-season harvest limit is reached or until March 31.
