What is remarkable is that the specific species that may be
taken....redtails and goshawks...are specifically mentioned in state law as
opposed to an administrative decision that could be reviewed annually to
ensure that redtail and goshawk populations are stable enough for taking.
The state indicates the goshawk is a declining species here with perhaps 20
breeding pairs. Including the goshawk as a takable species seems like a
significant oversight in the law. If anyone has more info on this please
contact me offline.
