Light Goose Conservation Order Harvest Reports
In recent years, overabundant light geese (snows, blues, and Ross's geese)  have severely degraded their sensitive arctic tundra nesting habitat.  In an effort to reduce their population before it collapses from habitat destruction, the light goose conservation order was established.  The conservation order allows an extended season length and liberalized harvest regulations on light geese when no other waterfowl seasons are open.  To get a FREE light goose conservation order permit number call (601) 432-2199 between 8 AM and 5 PM after September 15.  Write down this number and keep it on your person while hunting.  All we need is your name and address so we can mail a harvest survey to you after the season closes.  We are required to report conservation order harvest to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to continue offering the opportunity to hunters.
