Adults would not be able to hunt Canada geese during the youth waterfowl season, which this year is set for Sept. 20 21. Last year, the youth season fell on the last weekend of the early September hunt, which closes Sept. 15. This year, a calendar shift puts the youth hunt outside the early Canada goose season. Fish and Wildlife Service sets waterfowl season frameworks, and dates for this year's hunting seasons will be finalized later this summer.

Game and Fish also is proposing a handful of other changes in goose hunting regulations for 2008:

In the Missouri River Canada Goose Zone, the early Canada goose season would close Sept. 7 instead of Sept. 15, the closing date for the rest of the state. In exchange, hunters in the Missouri River zone would be able to hunt eight days later until Jan. 2 while goose season outside the zone would close Dec. 25. Goose season would open statewide Sept. 27.

Game and Fish officials say most young geese should be fledged by that time, and the earlier start to the season wouldn't reduce the number of days available to hunters at the end of the regular waterfowl season.
