    Default Spring goose hunt?

    So, I was watching Youkon Men on tv last night and they were hunting geese in the spring. I went back and looked at the regs. I'm not seeing any five day season like they talked about on the show. Anyone have any info on this one? Thanks

    I believe that is a federal substance hunt.

    I was thinking the same thing, talked to a native guy once out of Kotz that told me about spring goose hunt during march. Sounds like fun, maybe work if you marry a native gal and move to the bush. Might not be worth it, but for some, maybe it would. There is a guy that use to post, maybe still does, on the hunting forum, that lives the subsistance lifestyle in the bush, he may know about it. Some states in the midwest lower 48 do hve a spring goose season. Bud

    As mentioned it is a federal rural subsistance hunt. The seasons and locations are reviewed and established every August for the next spring migration. The seasons are timed and centered around rural villages and towns. You have to be a resident of the the village. You do not have to marry a native girl/guy to do this. If you ever get invited to come out from town to a village and hunt in the spring keep in mind that if you get caught it is a federal offense.

    I would strongly advise seeking advice on this subject from the USFW Service located in Anchorage. Duckdon

    That roundabout where Trunk Road goes over the overpass on the parks would be a really good spot to set up. The field across the parks would be good too. I see several thousand geese in there every spring, just begging for a guy to be there with a layout blind. I would check that area out D&D! It's only a couple minutes from your house too!

    That's plan B. I've got a better hole I'm gonna hit first, though!

    Wouldn't it be funny as hell to go out there with ground blinds, calls, 100 decoys and squirt guns?

    I'd do it!



    I got checked once in NC about 2 months after the season out there calling in birds just to watch them interact and learn more about them.
