GEESE & SANDHILL CRANE

SPECIAL SEPTEMBER RESIDENT CANADA GOOSE SEASON

September 13 - 22, 2003.

Bag Limit Three daily, six in possession after first day.

This is a statewide, experimental hunting season authorized by the USFWS. It is designed to provide additional hunting opportunity and serve as a tool in managing the state s population of locally breeding Canada geese. An increasing population of resident Canada geese has led to increases in nuisance and crop depredation complaints. The season will be evaluated to determine its effectiveness in managing the numbers and distribution of resident Canada geese. Daily bag and possession limits will be the same as the regular season.
