Both of you please do yourselves a favor and read the regs and descriptions very carefully before you ever consider hunting geese.

If you still have the same question, then please stick with ducks.

White geese include Ross' geese, snow geese, and blue phase of both species. :hammer:

Nope! Specks really are dark geese! LOL

Why read the regulations when some of the answers you get on this forum are correct! LOL

But swans are white geese...you can shoot 15 of them now.

My 12 year old can answer that question. (Maybe the OP is 10 years old) I'm just glad he's not dumb enough to ask it on a duck forum. That has to be a joke. If it's not I would suggest doing us all a favor and staying home. That goes for both DS and MM

Some years back, all the way back to the late 70's I was working the check station at Tule Lake fields.
Limit on geese was 6... 3 whites & 3 darks
A hunter came in with 6 specks, of which 3 were adults, and 3 young birds. He thought the young birds were white geese...
He got a ticket...

You have had a DHC account since 2010. I am assuming you have been hunting since them and you are now just trying to figure out what a spec is. :help:

Hey there now.... why are you suggesting I should stay home? What did I do? :lol3: :hammer: Besides 12 year olds can do lots of things I used to be able to do and some I still can't. Like shooting a gun, they don't know it's hard to do yet as they dust 24 out of 25 the first time out. :eek:

Better to ask now than later, much better to be safe than sorry. :thumbsup: "Hen pintails? man I thought those were widgeon!" "That snow goose your carrying there has a awful long neck" - "We're in the spec closure? no way! Damn" - "Shoot I thought specs were closed, I could have easily shot a box car full at 20 yds. all day long" :oops:

Seems like a reasonable question for folks who haven't targeted nor been around many geese. Seems like almost no one reads the regulations besides the species limits who are you guys kidding....why would you even bother when you can just ask the guys at the check station. :yes: :yes: :yes: Where's Duckfan when we need him? :wink:

Where I grew up in this state (central coast), as a kid into my late teens,we had enough ducks to keep us entertained. I think the pond in Monterey that you rent pedal boats from had a few domestic geese. At any rate, I really did not get to hear or even see geese in the wild until I went off to college in Chico. I had to learn that swans were not white geese and dark geese I believe were closed. This was in the early 80's. Some things people take for granted. Most activities have a learning curve. I would venture to say that the vast majority of fowlers were taught thru a friend or family member. Learning it on your own would be challenging.
