The number of harvested geese was over 3.1 million nationally in 2010, decreasing somewhat to over 2.8 million geese in 2011.” We could really use some Canada Goose relief.
The problem with resident Canada geese is not a lot of guys hunt them because 1. they tend to hang around with in city limits where hunting legally is a problem and 2. they eat grass all the time and taste like C
There is also a problem with a population explosion of snow geese that are destroying tundra nesting grounds and pushing out the migratory subspecies of Canada geese cause their populations to decline. Since it's virtually impossible to tell the difference between the different subspecies of Canada geese Federal lawmakers have to take into account the population size of the more vulnerable subspecies when setting season dates and bag limits for them. Around here the local munis and the division of wildlife do a pretty good job with addling permits and goose roundups. and the geese that are rounded up and Ahem released from their mortal coil are sent off the food pantrys to feed hungry families you may want to talk to your local municipalities about trying a program like this.
