Hunters active but Canada geese thrive in Minnesota

from La Crosse Tribune

The population of Canada geese appears to be increasing in Minnesota, even as hunters in the state have been more aggressive about killing the birds, state wildlife officials said. The state Department of Natural Resources estimates there were 434,000 Canada geese in the state this spring, well above the department's population goal of 250,000, according to a St. Paul Pioneer Press report. Last year, Minnesota hunters killed nearly 239,000 Canada geese, compared to about 181,000 mallards harvested. Even with those numbers, along with the margins of error in counting bird populations, DNR manager Steve Cordts said there's little doubt about one thing: "The population is increasing again." more
