Feds call for snow goose season

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Hunters can target snow geese during a special season coming up in March.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issued a special conservation order. The season will run from March 11 through April 25. Hunters will be allowed to take up to 15 snow geese per day to help reduce the population. Vermont wildlife officials say back in the 1960s the population was about 50,000. Now it's about 1 million. Hunters will need a state snow goose permit.
