Predator Calling
What is a Light Goose Conservation Order?

Regular dark and light goose seasons close on Feb. 14, 2010. However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issued a Light Goose Conservation Order that begins on Feb. 15, 2010 and ends April 30, 2010. This allows hunters to continue hunting light geese, (snow geese and Ross’ geese) because the population has grown so large that they are severely damaging their nesting habitat on the Arctic tundra. Because the order is designed to use hunting as a tool to reduce light goose numbers, the hunting season is extended and daily bag and possession limits are removed. Hunters may also use unplugged shotguns, electronic calls and daily shooting hours are extended through one-half hour after sunset. Refer to the Migratory Birds page for more information.
