August Goose Opener????

Postby Gopack » Fri Aug 18, 2006 6:51 pm

Anybody see the article today on the new US Fish and Wildlife ruling basically taking Canada's off protections list.From what I read(and again I have A Johnston Co. education so my reading comprehension may be lacking), they gave local government the power to trap/destroy geese deemed to be a "nuisance" and destroy nest/eggs. The interesting part was it ok'ed August seasons for all states. Anybody read this or have spoke to WRC about if they're gonna try to implement anything this year?

Didn't see the August opener but did see where it was rumored for awhile (actually I'm pretty sure the Feds gave the states the option) for a 15 bird limit, unplugged guns and electronic calls to reduce some of the resident numbers.

Not this year, but heck an increase to 8 birds....thats a lot of freaking goose meat to grind into jerky :help:
