Reminder: Canada Goose season will begin on January 12 here in our part of NC. We are part of the NE Hunt Zone, so a permit is required to harvest Canada Geese during this season. Permits are available at any wildlife service agent as well as online. They are $5, plus the $2 transaction fee. This special goose season runs through January 27, 2018. Youth hunters that plan to hunt during the February Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days must purchase a NE Hunt Zone permit before regular season goes out. After January 27, permits will no longer be available for purchase.
