2012 Small Game and Furbearer regulations set

NDGF News Release

North Dakota’s 2012 small game and furbearer regulations have been set and most season structures and bag limits are similar to last year. The only significant changes involve an increase in limits for the early Canada goose, mountain lion and fisher seasons.
The early Canada goose season will open Wednesday, Aug. 15, and have a daily limit of 15 and a possession limit of 30. The early season ends in the Missouri River zone Sept. 7, while the rest of the state closes Sept. 15. The Missouri River zone closes early to provide additional late season hunting opportunities by adding these days to the end of the regular season.
The mountain lion season in Zone 1 will have a quota of 21 lions, split into an early and late season. The early season opens Aug. 31 and continues until the early season quota of 14 is filled, or through Nov. 25. The late season opens Nov. 26, and will run until seven lions are taken, or through March 31, 2013.
