BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota’s early Canada goose hunting season is set, with bag limits and licensing requirements the same as last year.

The state Game and Fish Department says one change is that the west boundary of the Missouri River Canada Goose Zone north of state Highway 200 is extended to state Highway 8.

The season opens Tuesday, Aug. 15, and continues through Sept. 15, except in the Missouri River Zone where the season ends Sept. 7.

Limits and shooting hours for the early season are different from the regular season. The early Canada goose season has a limit of 15 birds daily and 45 in possession. Shooting hours are half an hour before sunrise to sunset.
