As of now, the proposed opener for the early Canada Goose season is September 1. That would be on a Monday, Labor day.
I'd rather see the opener fall on a Saturday. Under new USFWS guidelines for resident goose seasons that will take place this year, there are no restrictions stopping the G&F from moving the opener up to Saturday Aug, 30. I know there's a limited amount of days allowed for goose hunting and I'm not sure if the G&F is leaving the opener on September 1 for reasons I'm unaware of. If the last two days of the early season don't fall on a weekend (I think they shouldn't), I'd like to see the last two days taken from the back of the early season and moved in front of the currently proposed opener.
Does anyone have any insight on this that could shed some light on why they'd place the opener on a Monday when it could be on a Saturday?
