The Light Goose Conservation Order began in 1999 and is an effort to help control the population of adult snow geese and limit the destructive effects on breeding ground in the arctic. At the height of population, biologist estimated there were 16-18 million snow geese in North America, with population growing an estimated 5% a year, putting a huge strain on breeding grounds for not only snow geese, but for other waterfowl species as well.
Federal biologists decided to let hunters and outdoorsman step in to help curve the population growth by starting the LGCO, allowing licensed hunters an opportunity to hunt light geese (lesser, greater, and ross’s snow geese) on their return migration, with very little regulation. Hunters can utilize electronic calls and unplugged shotguns and, in most states, don’t have daily bag limits to worry about. A classic way to hunt snow geese is laying under a spread of white decoys wearing all white. Not only does it give hunters a way to extend their season (all the way through April in some places), it is an incredible way to experience a hunting style unlike any other.
While the Light Goose Conservation Order is a fun way to help flatten population growth, it alone is not enough. Biologists and Organizations like Delta Waterfowl are still working on efforts to study the effects snow geese are having on the Arctic ecosystems and looking for other options to help save and restore those breeding grounds. Projects like our Conservation Hoodie are an effort to help to raise money to make sure the sport we all enjoy stays around for future generations.
