From New Jersey’s The Star-Ledger:
_While he can’t prove it, Nicholas Throckmorton, a spokesman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), is convinced resident Canada geese have learned how to avoid being shot. . . . This year [the USFWS] further relaxed the hunting rules, giving more flexibility to states.
New Jersey, for example, is allowing the use of electronic goose calls this September. It is also removing the requirement that shotguns be “plugged” so they can’t hold more than three shells. And it is extending hunting hours by a half-hour._
Are resident geese in your area getting harder to hunt? Would you like similarly relaxed regs in your state?
