As geese continue to winter in Oregon, instead of California, farmers are trying to protect their crops from the destructive, protected birds. Michelle Dennehy with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife says the federal government has provided a grant for them to expand a program that encourages hunters to look for geese on private lands. They will help land owners prepare their property. “Through the program, ODF&W takes care of details like signing, patrolling the properties. If hunters need to reserve, we can help coordinate those hunter reservations.”  Dennehy says geese are particularly fond of grass seed, a popular crop in the Willamette Valley. Landowners who participate in the program are eligible for payment based on the size and location of their property. Visit the ODF & W website for more on the program.
