Film Short: Hunting Snow Geese in “White”

White from SITKA Gear on Vimeo.

A beautiful film short from SITKA takes on snow goose hunting in North America.

From SITKA:

“Snow Goose hunting in the eastern United States was stopped in 1916 because of low population levels. Hunting was allowed again in 1975 after populations had recovered. Since then, their populations have continued to grow, to the point that some areas of tundra nesting habitat are starting to suffer.
By the 1970s they switched to worrying about keeping goose numbers in check. In the late 1990s both Canada and the United States began to permit extra hunting to reduce Snow Goose populations.”
