BISMARCK -- The North Dakota Game and Fish Department urges spring snow goose hunters to monitor on- and off-road travel conditions as light geese begin to move through the state in large numbers.

While much of the snow that remains will likely disappear this week, moisture left behind may still make travel difficult on section line trails, unimproved roads and harvested grain fields where hunting might take place.

Driving on soft, muddy roads, trails and section lines is strongly discouraged, said the department. Officials also advise  hunters to seek permission from landowners before attempting any off-road travel in fields.
