According to eyewitness accounts, at least two geese were shot over the Sedona Wetlands Preserve in recent weeks. According to Arizona Game and Fish Warden Lee Luedeker, however, those reports don’t necessarily mean anyone is poaching.
Birder Sam Hough said he observed two geese shot near the preserve on Christmas morning, Dec. 25, while he was with the Northern Audubon Society.
“We were doing the [Christmas Bird Count] at the wetlands,” Hough said. “When we arrived we saw a large flock of Canada geese flying over the ponds and [heard] gun shots. We saw two geese go down.

When they call the rangers, the hunters are long gone.”
