Snow geese

Postby Bufflehead dude » Sat Dec 22, 2012 12:48 pm

I'm from NC but I hunt in SC a lot and was huntin this mornin and a flock of geese flew over to far to shoot I didn't really payem much atention until I saw a snow goose in the back of the flock. I had never seen a snow anywhere close ever and was wondering if this is common or rare thanks :beer:

Two years ago there was one who hung out with the resident Canada's at the Coastal grand mall in MB.

The one i saw was in the area for about a month, the coldest part of the winter.

They aren't exactly common but there is a flight or two around on the coast, one of these flights sucked right over my spread Tues last week and is now two less. The 7th bird in from the wing of the V was a huge white headed Blue but was to far out to swing on. Same day we had a flight of 5 Tundras drift over us, tempting to say the least but we held.
