A first for me...

Postby R-Factor » Fri Oct 19, 2012 8:55 pm

After hittin' up the ducks the first part of today, I did a little driving around to scout. A group of Canadas numbering around 225 caught my eye in a field and I pulled over to glass them for a bit. Something stuck out and made me do a double take. One of the geese had a head that was almost all white! Black neck, and then toward the top of the neck went all white...really cool stuff. Even the bill wasn't black! I thought it might have been a blue goose version of a Snow, but looked just like a normal Canada from the neck down. I called Kelsey Sullivan and talked a bit about it...pretty neat- partially albino apparently.

Are you kidding me? Of course not! :lol3: Any time I see a large group of banded birds...or anything I'd particularly like to target, it's always "behind the fence". :wink: No, in actuality, this was in a "huntable" field- just too close to houses and not worth possibly ruffling feathers for. Looking back, I probably already have permission to hunt the field- would just have to set up a ways off in order not to wake folks up in the AM with shooting.
