BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s spring light goose hunting season is getting under way this weekend.

The state Game and Fish Department says the season runs through May 15. It’s open for light geese - snows, blues, and Ross’s. The season is closed to whitefronts, Canada geese, swans and all other migratory birds.

There is no daily bag limit or possession limit.

Game and Fish says availability of food and open water dictate when snow geese arrive in the state. Early migrants generally start showing up in the southeast part of the state in mid-to-late March, but huntable numbers usually aren’t around until the end of March or early April.
