The goose season has ended for Canada and white-fronted geese in Oklahoma, but waterfowlers may still hunt light geese through March 30.

The Conservation Order Light Goose Season allows hunting of snow, blue and Ross' geese — all known as light geese — with no daily possession limits and unplugged shotguns until a half-hour after sunset.

The goal of the special season is to reduce the population of light geese, which are destroying extensive areas of Arctic tundra.

Hunters who participate in the Conservation Order Light Goose Season must register at wildlifedepartment.com
