that was just me being over ambitious with the neck ringing.
she was one of those birds that just wouldn't die. every time i would think she was dead and put her with the other birds she would try to sneak off into the weeds. finally i just had to ring her for all she was worth. the picture looks gorey, but the breasts were in nice shape. the biggest goose to the far left was so big i could barely ring his neck. i'm sure he is the biggest goose i have ever shot. i wish i had a scale to weigh him but i would guess every bit of 12 lbs.
i am a 5' 11" 245 lbs fat man if that gives you some frame of reference on the size of this sucker.
