A Future for Mattamuskeet's Geese?

Record #:
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.
