Spring Goose Hunt

Share Button

The seasons are changing and this has never been so evident in Eeyou Istchee.

One person said the winter held back the spring Goose Break hunt by almost a month. May 21 saw Sonny Orr getting his first goose in Whapmagoostui although the large flocks had yet to arrive that far north.

In Mistissini, the geese were just starting to arrive by May 5. Hunters heard that many were still down south.

It didn’t deter folks from heading out to welcome them back. I hope people will send in their community’s recognition and pride in who killed the first goose in their hometown. At the Nation we like to acknowledge these hunters as well as the youth who got their first goose ever.

In the meantime, here are a few photos of this year’s goose hunt.
