Waterfowl Regulations Booklets Contain Prince William Sound Goose Season Error

(Statewide) — Prince William Sound waterfowl hunters need to be aware of an error concerning hunting seasons for Canada geese in the 2014-2015 Alaska Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations Summary booklets.

On page 19 of the hard-copy booklets for the Gulf Coast Zone, Footnote 4 should read:

“Unit 5, Canada goose season is Sept. 28 – Dec. 16. Possession limits are 3X the daily bag limit. Unit 6 (except Middleton Island) Canada goose season is Sept. 28 – Dec. 16. Possession limits are 2X the daily bag limit.”

This language has been changed in the online version of the 2014-2015 summary at http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/static/regulations/wildliferegulations/pdfs/waterfowl.pdf to include the correct language. Unfortunately, the hard-copy booklets were printed before the error was discovered.

Hunters with questions regarding this year’s waterfowl hunting regulations should contact State Waterfowl Coordinator Dan Rosenberg at (907) 267-2453, or dan.rosenberg@alaska.gov.
