A large segment of the Mississippi Valley Population (MVP) of Canada geese traditionally stops at and around Horicon National Wildlife Refuge (Horicon NWR) between late September and December. As both the MVP and the proportion of the MVP in the Horicon area increased in the 1960s and early 1970s (Craven 1978), problems also increased, including crop depredation, uneven distribution of geese both in Wisconsin and in the flyway, altered hunter behavior, and the potential for waterfowl disease.
