The Light Goose Conservation Order begins Feb. 7, and prospects look fair around Lake Etter. Prospects are fair.
East Zone Goose: The Light Goose Conservation Order began Jan. 24 to lackluster participation. Still huntable numbers of snows on the coastal prairies, but few hunters are interested in hunting during the liberal special season. Good hunts were posted in green fields near Port Lavaca, but few outfitters are offering hunts. Pre-frontal fog early in the week allowed for solid shoots. Recent wet weather has discouraged hunters.
