Emperor Goose - Spring/Summer Subsistence Harvest and 2018 Fall/Winter Harvest Information

Emperor Geese

A subsistence hunt for emperor geese is open to rural Alaskans living in subsistence eligible areas (April 2 through August 31). Emperor goose populations declined significantly in early 1980’s resulting in a closure of any hunting in 1987. Conservation efforts through co-management let the emperor goose population rebound allowing for legal hunting across Alaska beginning in 2017.
