Outdoors Canada Geese population in Western North Carolina flourishing

According to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission the geese are here with good reason.

Over the past 60 years the migratory Canada Geese have diminished substantially due to changes in farm practices in the region and farther north, which has caused the geese to stop their migration farther south.

The local migratory population became so low in the 1980s that the NCWRC and numerous other state agencies released Canada Geese with a low desire to migrate.

Now, North Carolina's migratory population is only 10-12,000 geese while our resident community has grown to over 100,000.
