ST. PAUL, Minn. (KNSI) For the first time ever, the state of Minnesota is planning a special Canada goose hunt from August 10th through 25th.
The D-N-R's Steve Cordts says the Canada goose population is above the state's goal of 250,-000 birds and has been that way more or less for a decade.
Cordts says hunting will be restricted to an "intensive harvest zone" in west-central Minnesota, running from East Grand Forks through St.Cloud to the west metro and over to the South Dakota border.
A small game license, special goose permit, and waterfowl stamp are required.
