24 pound goose? what???

Postby lukea.becker » Mon Nov 16, 2009 2:47 pm

Ok guys i was watching that RNT waterfowlin show and they were talking about all the different species of geese we have and the only one i had never heard of was a maximus. They said this thing can get to 24 pounds. I personally have never shot a 24 pound goose but im wondering where i have to go to make that happen. I goose hunt typically in Illinois, are those monster geese out there and i just havent gotten one yet? thanks

No there are not any geese left of that size. Rumor is they used to have them that got this big though. A guy from dropzone dekes ran a contest for a 16 pound goose and nobody shoot one one for three years, finally somebody shoot a #14.

yup i dvr'd them as well, arent we cool haha. a 24 pound goose would be something like a turkey i suppose. that would be a lot of bird to see falling out of the sky and i bet it would hit with quite a thud as well.

The heaviest flying bird is the trumpeter swan at 27 lbs. 24 lb canada geese do not exist.

just my two cents but talking to old hunters from my area and reading nebraskaland magazine all of the old hunters say that our geese now a days are alot bigger than "their" geese were just what ive heard and read.

^ nope

abot 160-170 in that pic, tho you couldnt tell


but that goose is a monster

trust me, as hard as it is.

if you look at the smaller bird and realize its still a greater canada goose, with a small bird being 8-12 pounds at the end of season after feeding on corn for 6 months, ya wouldnt disagree

last season out in KC, Missouri my brother and I both shot very large geese. My biggest at about 19lbs and his at 21lbs....it was late season so they had been feeding on corn all year too :biggrin: . A 24lbs goose wouldnt surprise me to bad.
If there dumb enough to be brought in by plastic were just doing them a favor.
