N.D. light goose season to open
Published 02/16/2010, The Jamestown Sun
North Dakota’s spring light goose season officially opens Saturday, but that doesn’t mean hunters will find anything to shoot. The annual spring season opens in February in case weather conditions allow for an early arrival of birds. But availability of food and open water dictate when snow geese arrive in the state, and the state Game and Fish Department said huntable numbers usually aren’t around until the end of March or early April. The spring season is open through May 9 for light geese snows, blues, and Ross’s. The season is closed to whitefronts, Canada geese, swans and all other migratory birds.Word count: 103
