Q. I've heard reports that spring snow goose seasons again are underway in North Dakota and Minnesota. Why are these seasons offered?
A. The spring snow goose season is a federal "conservation order" -- as opposed to a traditional hunting season -- implemented by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service some 15 years ago in an effort to reduce overabundant populations of light geese that were decimating the fragile arctic coastlines where they breed.
This little shot of winter is going to throw a little wrench into what was setting up to be a very early spring snow goose migration. How much snow, where it falls and how soon it melts will all play into the 2012 season. Stay tuned!
It’s getting to be that time of year again. Time to dust off the scattergun and get ready for waterfowl hunting.
If you’re not prepared for summer to end, by all means, continue to rake the murky depths of local lakes for white-fleshed morsels. But mark my words: hunting season is right around the corner, and I plan to be there when it comes.
I still remember the first time I brought home a mess of ducks after a weekend trip to North Dakota.
Beaming with pride, I plopped the Ziplocked bags of gutted birds on the kitchen counter and grinned ear to ear.
“What do you expect me to do with those?” Mom asked.
