Oklahoma Saturday hunting news:
The Okla. Wildlife Conservation Commission approved the season dates for the next water-fowl season.The most significant change from last season is the increase in the daily limits for geese.
The daily limit for Canadian geese has increased from three to eight.
The daily limit for light geese has increased from 20 to 50. [50? Did they say FIFTY!!]
A migratory game bird biologist for the Okla. Dept. of Wildlife Conservation
hopes the increased bag limits will lure more people back to hunting geese.
He states “Hopefully, having eight birds (as the daily limit for Canadian geese) will get some folks back into the sport.”
Geese continue to cause nuisance problems in the state. He adds “We are trying to increase the harvest.”
For duck hunters, the daily limit during the Sept. teal season has increased from four to six birds. The limit of scaups during the duck seasons has been reduced from six to three birds daily. The daily limit for canvasbacks has increased from one to two.
