Hi, my name is Gary Loper and this page is dedicated to providing you with most of the specific information about hunting Canada Geese with me in North Dakota
Hunting location- My hunts for Canada geese during the early regular season are in Ward, McLean, Mountrail or McHenry counties. Season dates- Tentatively, for the fall of 2002 the Canada goose season opener should be 28 Sep. Note: Shooting hours are from 1/2 hr before sunrise to either 1 or 2 pm based upon Std. or savings time. Beginning 12 October, Saturday and Wednesday all day goose hunting is allowed. Best time for success- Cacklers and lessers dominate action from the opener to mid or late October. There will be small concentrations of local Giants until mid-October, when they are eventually joined by Interior and Western subspecies from Canada. Action is predominately larger subspecies from early November to season end. How many birds can a person shoot? The limits for 2001 were 3/day with 6/possession. The limits should be the same for 2002. Suggested gun/ammo for geese- Any gun capable of shooting 1 1/8 oz of or more of steel shot(or similiar non-toxic shot). Lesser canadas shot sizes- #1-4 shot. Larger subspecies- #2 or larger. Hunting methods used for geese- I prefer field hunting over decoys in a field. I lay within 50-150 decoys based upon the subspecies, (more for the lessers, less for greaters)the number of birds and hunting pressure.
