BISMARCK (AP) — North Dakota’s Game and Fish Department said hunting licenses are available for the spring light goose season.
The season opens Feb. 16 and runs through May 5. Officials said huntable numbers of geese usually aren’t around until late March or early April but with this winter’s mild weather the birds could arrive earlier than normal. Game and Fish will provide migration updates once geese have entered the state.
State residents can hunt during the spring season if they have last fall’s 2012-13 bird licenses. If they don’t, hunters need to purchase either a 2013-14 combination license; or a small game, and general game and habitat license. Nonresidents need a 2013 spring light goose season license.
