Hunters can harvest Canada geese in August

MN DNR - Mon, 07/27/2015 - 11:49am

Hunters can hunt Canada geese in west-central Minnesota from Saturday, Aug. 8, through Sunday, Aug. 23, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Individual hunters are allowed to shoot up to 10 Canada geese per day, but there is no limit to the number of Canada geese a hunter can possess.

“The state’s Canada goose population remains high, and the August management action is one way to control goose numbers,” said Steve Cordts, waterfowl specialist for the DNR. “This harvest helps limit the amount of damage the birds cause to crops in the western portion of the state.”

The August goose harvest will open only in the intensive harvest zone in west-central Minnesota, with shooting hours from a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. A small game hunting license, special goose permit and state waterfowl stamp are required. A federal waterfowl stamp is not needed; however, it is required to hunt geese and other waterfowl beginning in September.

This is the third year the DNR has held an August goose management action.

“Last August, about 5,500 hunters harvested about 21,000 Canada geese, compared to 24,000 in 2013,” Cordts said. “Factors like weather and progress of small grain harvest tends to affect hunter success.”

The DNR in August will announce details of fall waterfowl seasons, including the September Canada goose season that runs from Saturday, Sept. 5, through Tuesday, Sept. 22, and the regular Canada goose seasons that tentatively begin Saturday, Sept. 26. Season dates and more information on goose hunting can be found online.

 

Designs due Aug. 28 for waterfowl stamp

MN DNR - Mon, 07/27/2015 - 11:41am

Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2016 Minnesota Migratory Waterfowl Stamp from Monday, Aug. 17, through 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 28. 

The winner of the 2015 waterfowl stamp was Scot Storm.

The waterfowl stamp validation is sold along with hunting licenses and for an extra 75 cents purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $8.25. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to waterfowl management and habitat work.

The American wigeon is the only eligible species for depiction on the 2016 waterfowl stamp.

Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Sept. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road in St. Paul.

To see more information on stamp contests, guidelines for submitting work, and to sign up to receive regular email updates on the stamp contests, see the contest Web page. Contest guidelines are also available from the DNR Information Center by calling 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367.
