Large concentrations of light geese can be found on public lands in eastern Oklahoma, such as Webbers Falls at Fort Gibson, as they finish out the winter and begin migrating north, said Josh Richardson, migratory game bird biologist for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
Hunters who participate in the COLGS must have all necessary licenses, waterfowl stamps and a Harvest Information Program (HIP) Permit in their possession while hunting. For complete license information, see the "2011-12 Oklahoma Waterfowl Guide" or log on to wildlifedepartment.com.
Federal law requires that the Wildlife Department estimate the harvest of light geese during the Conservation Order Light Goose Season.
Hunters who plan to pursue snow, blue and Ross' geese during COLGS need to register for the hunt on the Internet by logging on to wildlifedepartment.com or by sending their name, address and phone number to: Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation; Attn: COLGS; P.O.
