I think hutty nailed it in post #9 for MD. Steve, if you want to include DE in this now, I think it could be accomplished with a bill in the state assembly (hopefully statewide! - private AND public land!). I don't think the USFWS gives a rip if we hunt on Sunday, all we need to do is approve it on the state level for the CO. Man...I have been hunting snow geese for 35 years since moving up here, and since they became a "problem", I don't feel either state has taken that seriously. I could write a book about the trials and tribulations of trying to gain access on state and federal land to hunt snow geese. I just like to hunt them, not murder them in huge piles ( I have cleaned enough piles) to "save the tundra", but it has been a struggle over the years. Now, many places they used that we could have really gotten after them, they no longer use. I will tell you, from personal experience, if you have the chance to hunt them, don't take it for granted. They will change and rarely do they go back to what they used to do. Get them while you have access and the desire! I agree with Joe, if biologists truly feel that snow geese are a hazard to themselves, other species and their environment, they should help make it easier to cull their numbers. We should be in this together. Sorry for the long post.
