ALBANY, N.Y. - To thin a growing population of Canada geese now estimated at 200,000, New York officials have set a new late-winter hunting season from March 1-10.

The season opens Saturday in most of Niagara, Erie, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Wyoming, Allegany, Livingston, Steuben, Schuyler, Chemung, Tompkins, Tioga, Cortland, Broome, Chenango, Delaware, Schoharie, Albany, Greene, Sullivan, Ulster, Orange, Rockland, Putnam and Westchester counties and parts of Otsego and Dutchess counties.

There's a five-bird daily limit.

Environmental officials say other options for cutting the number of birds include puncturing eggs or coating them with corn oil to prevent hatching, but only after getting authorization from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the state.
