Corps announces plans to open recreation areas for Canada Goose Hunting

Published Dec. 19, 2014

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Raystown Lake announces the opening of areas for Canada Goose hunting beginning Dec. 18.

These areas will include Seven Points Beach and Boat Launch Areas, Aitch Recreation Area, Tatman Run Beach, and the Weaver Falls Recreation Area. Portions of these areas will be closed, except for hunting Canada Geese.

All of these areas listed will be open during the late Canada Goose season that will end on Jan. 15. Areas will also be open from Feb. 2 to Feb. 28 for the purpose of hunting Canada Geese.

The Corps will post signs designating hunting and restricted zones within these areas. There is no off-season maintenance on these roadways so it is important to be cognizant of road conditions. The Corps may close these access areas depending on weather and road conditions. Vehicle operators will be traveling at their own risk.

Hunters participating in hunting activities at the Raystown Lake Project must strictly adhere to all Pennsylvania Game Commission regulations, applicable U.S. Fish and Wildlife regulations, as well as any special regulations posted by the Corps.
