Early Goose Hunting Season Underway in Minnesota


Officials with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources are monitoring the state of the early goose season.

Conservation officers Jeremy Woinarowicz, and Tony Elwell report success was better than average for geese, saying many parties quickly bagging limits of birds during the goose opener. Woinarowicz reports enforcement action for last week included “hunters not having small game licenses, no federal waterfowl stamp, failure to register bear bait as prescribed, and multiple violations in which juvenile ATV passengers/operators weren’t wearing helmets.”

Elwell reports “nuisance-animal calls were taken, a wolf depredation investigation was handled, and ATV patrols were also conducted during the week.”
