St. Paul Those who wish to shoot light geese as they pass through Minnesota may do so March 1 through April 30.

The harvest will occur under a federal conservation order that
allows 24 states, including Minnesota, to harvest light geese after
the close of the hunting seasons. Non-toxic shot must be used, but
there is no daily or possession limit. Electronic calls and
unplugged guns also are allowed during this harvest in
Minnesota.

A Spring Light Goose Permit is required and can be purchased at
any Electronic Licensing System outlet in the state. Although the
permits are free, there is a $3.50 application fee to cover the
cost of issuing the permits. No other license, stamp, or permit is
required. Permits are now available. Minnesota is on the extreme
eastern edge of the birds’ spring migration through the
Midwest.
