 EESE SEASON OPEN IN IOWA
There is a special U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service conservation order that allows for a spring snow goose hunting season. In Iowa, that season is Feb. 1 through April 15. Hunters may take up to 20 snow geese per day, with an unlimited possession limit. Shooting hours are from one half hour before sunrise to one half hour after sunset.
Hunters may use unplugged shotguns and electronic calls during this conservation order and they must use non-toxic shot.
Hunters are required to have a small game license, habitat fee and the state migratory game bird fee, if normally required. Hunters are not required to have a valid federal migratory bird stamp.
