I just think that before the population crashes due to disease or starvation on the breeding grounds (and the destruction of the tundra itself) , that other measures are taken which can bring the population down into manageable numbers. I can remember the days when you hardly ever saw any snow geese at all, and the hunting seasons for them were quite restrictive. I was quite happy when the fall limits on them were 7 or 15 or 20 birds. Always happy to get a limit. Now we can shoot 50 per day in the fall, what is next 100 per day? As long as they don't end up in a ditch, have some fun, but try to put some skill and ethical shooting back into it. It is a "sport" of hunting after all.
