The number of snow geese migrating through central United States has exploded from 1.5 million birds in the early 1970s to an estimated 15 to 20 million today. Biologists are concerned that snow geese are overpowering food supplies in their tundra nesting grounds, putting unsustainable pressure on their habitat. To help manage the snow goose population, host Bret Amundson joins Tony Crotty and Mid Migration Outfitters on several weeks of spring conservation hunts in the Upper Midwest.
