Abstract:
Lake Mattamuskeet has been known as one of the best places for Canadian geese hunting in the world, but the lake has gone to bust over the past decade. Dean details the findings presented in a July issue of Wildlife in North Carolina written by NCWRC waterfowl biologist Jack Donnelley, US Bureau of Sport Fishreis and Wildlife biologist Otto Florschutz, and Mattamuskeet Refuge Manager John Davis. Research found that dwindling geese populations could be attributed to changes in corn and soybean production in North Carolina, as well as excessive hunting pressure in the area.

Abstract:
Hunters in the Northeast Hunt Zone will have a winter season for Canada geese for the first time since 1992. The zone is comprised of all or parts of eleven counties in the northeastern Coastal Plain. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had closed the zone to hunting in an attempt to allow a declining migrating population a chance to rebound. North Carolina has both a resident Canada geese population and a migratory one. The resident one now numbers over one million while the migratory remains constant at around five thousand. Wildlife biologists hope to find reasons for this through examinations of the shot geese. The wildlife service will issue only five hundred permits, and each hunter can shoot one goose.
