  • 2002 Illinois Light Goose Conservation Action Survey Report


  • Harvest of light geese during the 2002 Illinois Conservation Action was estimated at 17,875 geese, a decrease or 18,955 geese from the 2001 harvest of 36,830. Participation increased to 5,107 hunters during 2002 compared to 4,665 hunters during 2001. Hunters spent an estimated 31,204 days afield during 2002, a decrease of 1,430 from the 32,634 days hunted during 2001. Unplugged shotguns were the method used most often (67%); however electronic calls and hunting after sunset were also used by more than 50% of hunters (62% and 54%, respectively). As with hunters responding to the 2001 survey, hunters who did not participate in the conservation action reported no geese in the area and no place to hunt as well as not interested as the main reasons they did not hunt light geese.
