PRATT, Kan. -(Ammoland.com)- If the phrase “save the best for last” was applicable to hunting seasons, goose season just might be “the best.”

By the time goose season comes around, most bird hunters have warmed up their dogs on a dove or teal hunt, put a few rounds through their shotgun at the opening of duck season, and are now primed for the big birds – geese.

Canada geese, which include the giant Canadas that can weigh upwards of 12 pounds, and light geese (snows and Ross’) kick off the first of the Kansas goose seasons, followed by white-fronted geese. Seasons details are below.
