WDFW Online Goose Identification Testing

The Oregon and Washington Fish and Wildlife Commissions have approved new regulations for northwest Oregon and southwest Washington goose hunters in 2015-16, including a closed season for dusky Canada geese. See the 2015-16 Migratory Waterfowl and Upland Game Seasons pamphlet for more information.  New hunters and those who had their previous year’s hunting authorization invalidated for Goose Management Area 2 need to pass an exam with a minimum of 80% to receive their current year hunting authorization.

Hunters who fail a test must wait 28 days before retesting, and will not be issued a reciprocal authorization until that time.

The booklet and video titled "Pacific Northwest Goose Management" are designed to assist you in successfully passing the exam by providing information about goose management issues in the region and ways to identify geese while hunting. Follow these steps:
