Delaware implements federal Snow Goose Conservation Order
DOVER, Del. — Delaware wildlife officials will again allow hunters to pursue snow geese due to the high population.
WXDE-FM reports that the DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife is implementing a federal Snow Goose Conservation Order, which began Monday. Hunters will be able to target snow geese every day except Sunday, with no daily bag or possession limits.
It will remain in effect through Friday and then reopen Feb. 13 and run through April 7.
The order was first issued in 2009. It is continuing to help reduce and stabilize the snow goose population, which officials say is causing extensive damage to wetlands and agricultural areas in Delmarva.
