Hail, Emperor Geese!

Hail, Emperor Geese!

In 2018, 25 nonresident permits were issued by lottery and were included in the allowable take of 1,000 emperor geese statewide. For the 2020-’21 season, the take will remain the same, and resident permits will be available online, from Alaska Department of Fish and Game offices, and from license vendors in rural coastal villages where emperor geese are hunted. The online application period for the 25 nonresident permits is November 1 to December 15, 2019.
