Kodiak Canada Goose Season Reopens After 20 Years

Waterfowlers will be able to take Canada geese in the Kodiak Archipelago for the first time since the season was closed in 1987, an ADFG press release reports.

The season is possible because of a translocation of 200 Vancouver Canada geese from Southeast Alaska in 1987. Kodiak had no resident Canadas at the time, and the Vancouvers were brought in to establish a population.

The translocated population is now at a level that can support hunting. The season will be October 8 - January 22 with a bag of 1 Canada, and 2 in possession. Some parts of Kodiak are closed to hunting.
