Goose Hunting Season in Texas 2012



The goose hunting seasons for Texas have just been released. Rainfall in Texas was much improved during 2012, so migrating geese should have more wetlands to use this fall and winter. Biologist and northern latitudes insists that there are still way too many geese on the nesting grounds, so hopefully we can help put a dent in the snowbird population. The goose hunting is shaping up well for the Texas panhandle as well as the coasts. Keep raining!
