The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Fish and Wildlife has announced plans to implement a recently approved Conservation Order (CO) for snow geese. Implementation of the CO in New Jersey establishes an unlimited
harvest spring hunting season from March 11 through April 18, 2009 (except Sunday's). In addition to the no bag limit hunting season outside of the traditional hunting period, the CO allows for the use of electronic calls and shotguns loaded with up to seven (7) shells.
A CO is a special management action authorized by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act that is needed to control certain wildlife populations when traditional management programs are unsuccessful in preventing overabundance of that population. This action is granted under the authority of the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
