[DNR] Potato Creek SP announces Canada goose hunt dates
Start Date: 10/10/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 10/10/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Potato Creek State Park near North Liberty will conduct limited Canada goose reduction hunts on Nov. 9 and 10 and Dec. 14 and 15.

The purpose is to manage the growing population of Canada geese, which threatens the park’s ecosystem and, potentially, the safety of park patrons.

The park will remain open during the hunts; however, Worster Lake and other aquatic areas will be closed.

Hunters wishing to participate must have a current Indiana hunting license; an Indiana waterfowl stamp; a Harvest Information Program registration number; a current and signed federal duck stamp to take Canada geese; and be at least 18 years old by Oct.19.

This hunt is only for Canada geese. All normal Canada goose hunting firearm restrictions and bag limits apply.

Participants should register at the park office on the day they wish to hunt between two hours and 90 minutes before sunrise. A random draw at 90 minutes before sunrise on each of the four days will determine hunting zone assignments.

Hunters may bring with them up to three people, who must also meet the license requirements, to hunt as a group.

For more information, call (574) 656-8186.

Potato Creek State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2972.htm) is at 25601 State Road 4, North Liberty, 46554.
