LWFC Amends Light and White-Fronted Geese Hunting Season

The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) voted Thursday (March 7) to amend light geese and white-fronted geese hunting season in the proposed notice of intent for the 2019-20 hunting seasons, rules and regulations during its monthly meeting in Woodworth.

The commission voted to decrease the number of available hunting days from 88 to 74 and increase the daily bag limit of white-fronted geese from two to three. The daily bag limit for light geese, which includes snow, blue and Ross geese, remains at 20.

The first season split will begin Nov. 16, 2019, and run through Dec. 8, 2019, with the second season split set to begin Dec. 14, 2019, running through Feb. 2, 2020. These seasons will be in effect in both the north and south zones.

The Conservation Order for light geese will run from Dec. 9-13, 2019, for the first split then Feb. 3-March 15, 2020. There is no daily bag or possession limit during the Conservation Order.
