Description: The Southern James Bay Poluation Zone is for Canada goose management in which the primary goal is to set regular season (October through January) hunting regulations that will avoid overharvest of the migratory Southern James Bay Population (SJBP) which breeds in Nunavut and Ontario and winters from southern Ontario and Michigan to Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. The SJBP is the predominant migratory goose population in northwestern Pennsylvania. Migratory Canada geese are more susceptible to overharvest than resident geese so areas where they concentrate during fall and winter typically have more conservative season lengths and bag limits.TheResident Population Zone is for Canada goose management in which few migratory geese occur during fall and winter and in which regular season (October through February) hunting regulations are set to maintain stable numbers of Resident Population (RP) geese, balancing opportunities for hunting and viewing recreation with human-wildlife conflict issues. Because resident geese can sustain higher harvest rates than migrants, season lengths and bag limits in resident goose areas are typically more liberal than in migrant goose zones.The Atlantic Population Zone for Canada goose management in which the primary goal is to set regular season (October through January) hunting regulations that will avoid overharvest of the migratory Atlantic Population (AP) which breeds in northern Quebec and winters from New England to South Carolina, with the largest concentrations on the Delmarva Peninsula. The AP is important to fall/winter goose harvest in southeastern Pennsylvania. Migratory Canada geese are more susceptible to overharvest than resident geese so areas where they concentrate during fall and winter typically have more conservative season lengths and bag limits.Additional information can be found on the Game Commission's website as www.pgc.pa.gov.
