Goose Season Begins: DU Skeet Shoot






September 1 marks the beginning of the early season for canada geese which runs all month long and is designed to engage and limit the population numbers of resident Canada geese. Resident geese can clog neighborhood ponds and golf courses, and find relative safety in these same areas because they are often no hunting zones. Goose hunters have to first seek out geese that are in an area that is legal to hunt in, and then access the permission to hunt there. Any readers wanting some help controlling resident geese this season can send me an e-mail so that I can put them in touch with hunters from Ducks Unlimited. The volunteers of SC DU are gearing up for fall fundraisers, and are always keeping an eye out for nuisance geese.The South Carolina chapter of DU held their annual Volunteer Appreciation Day at the Indigo Club shooting facility in Columbia. The high temperatures did not hamper the fellowship that was evident when the volunteers held a little skeet competition. Congratulations go to Team Two: William Clyburn, Steve Johnson, and Cliff Edler (all from the East Cooper Chapter) and Team Three: Bob Murphy, Doug Saunders and Mitchell Preger for winning the competition.
