Canada Geese Hunting Opens Again in Connecticut River Zone
Canada Geese Seasons in Connecticut River Zone: September 1 thru September 25; October 3 thru November 5; November 22 thru December 27.
Federal law requires migratory bird hunters to register with the Migratory Bird Harvest Information Program (HIP). Migratory game birds include: ducks, geese, brant, coots, snipe, and woodcock.
How do I register?
Registering is easy. You will be asked for your name, address, date of birth and a brief summary of last year’s hunting activity. There is no charge for a HIP registration number.
There are two ways to get a HIP registration number:
- Get your HIP number by registering online.
- Call 1-877-306-7091 Monday Friday, 7:45 am to 4:30 pm EST. A live operator will give you a HIP registration number.
You must write the HIP registration number in the Harvest Information Program section of your hunting license.
Permanent or lifetime license holders should print the response form with your HIP registration number and carry it with you while hunting migratory birds.
Please remember Vermont and federal migratory waterfowl stamps are also needed to hunt ducks or geese, if you are 16 years old or older.
Hunters must re-register annually.
