Under a proposal, Montana could join other states in allowing hunters to take snow and Ross’s geese in the springtime. Tom Kuglin deputy editor of Lee Newspaper’s State Bureau reports the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission is considering such a hunt in the eastern part of the state that includes the Central Flyway and is asking for the public’s feedback. in 1999, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service passed regulations allowing states in the Central Flyway to adopt expanded hunting methods for snow and Ross’s geese due to swelling populations and concerns over Arctic nesting grounds.
