The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will ask for public input on the management of mild goose harvests in Texas at two future scoping meetings along the Gulf Coast.
One of the largest wintering populations of gentle birds in North America once lived in Texas’ coastal prairies and marshes. Winter birds( white and blue phases ) and Ross’s goose can both be used to describe light goose. The Texas Gulf Coast no longer experiences a sizable number of light birds wintering there due to various factors, including habitat loss, altered agricultural practices, increased searching pressure, and rules. Moreover, North America is currently experiencing an unparalleled large-scale population decline for the mid-continental mild geese population. In Texas, winter frequency, warrior numbers, and hunting success are all at all-time lows.
The following meetings are open to public participation and criticism from TPWD wildlife personnel:
Long Acres Ranch, 2335 Richmond Pkwy., Richmond, TX, 77469, www :// longacresranch.org, Nov. 8, 6 — 8 p. m.
9 – 8 p.m. on November 9 at El Campo Civic Center, 2350 Northward. Mechanic St., 77437
