Mark Latti: Thriving geese population a boon for hunters
An abundance of both resident and migratory Canada geese creates more opportunities for a successful hunt.

The distinctive honk and the silhouetted Vs are as much a sign of fall as the turning leaves.

Maine is the home to both resident and migratory populations of Canada geese, allowing hunters to take part in what can truly be a spectacular hunt. Geese respond extremely well to calling and decoys, and there are few hunts in Maine that can match the thrill of a flock of geese angling in toward your decoys.

Maine has an abundant Canada goose population. It’s hard to believe that in the early 1900s, Canada goose populations in North America were on the brink because of unrestricted harvesting of eggs, market hunting, and the draining of wetland habitat.
