Oakland County Parks will conduct pilot late-season managed goose hunts at Addison Oaks County Park this winter. The hunts will be conducted by Park Staff in close partnership with the Oakland County Sherriff’s Office, Parks Unit. Hunts will follow Michigan Department of Natural Resources Waterfowl Hunting Regulations. The goal of the managed hunts is to reduce and stabilize the resident Canada Goose population to achieve higher water quality standards for the park’s recreational swim beach.
