No but I know the guy and he is legit.


So a kid who claims 13-16 pound geese are common in North Carolina says an 18-pounder is legit.

Sure.

And just how tall is the guy in that pic? For all we know he could be 5'4" tall and ANY goose would look big in his hands. BTW Mayhem, you SHOW me a 16 pound WILD Canada goose (ON A CERT. SCALE), taken "regularly" from NC and I will personally pay your college tuition. :lol3: I know more than a couple guys that live and hunt there and I have a ton of familly that live and hunt in NC and I am flat out telling you you are full of goose poop. Sorry Ben but until you've actually put your hands on a 13+ pounder, you just don't know what a big goose is...

A friend put me on to this website and thought I should post the pic of the goose I shot 2 weeks ago.
Place, Western Minnesota near the South Dakota border.
First pic is of me with the goose... and the 2nd one is the goose on my digital scale because we couldn't believe my friend's fish scale. It's not 24 pounds, but a respectable 14.4 # and the biggest goose I've ever shot.

My son shot a 14 pounder this year, and it was a monster! I don't imagine an 18 or 20 pounder could even fly, much less 24.......

Yeah, up in to a tree! Just cause a goose gets really fat doesn't mean his wings will grow longer......

Or...You could just use the upload attachment tab at the bottom left corner of your post screen. That way everyone can see your pics, not just the ones with photobucket accts...

That is a very large goose.

Kinda nice that someone actually produced a little evidence of a large goose.

Good shooting :thumbsup:

They do but not for anywhere near the distances a goose has to fly. I have never...NEVER seen a turkey fly more than a few hundred yards and even then most of that is gliding. They can certainly be strong flyers yes, but only for the short distances it takes to get them out of danger or up into or down out of the roost. Cannot compare a goose to a turkey-period. Not even in the same ball park.

I'm 6'3 260 lbs. This is the 2nd biggest goose I have ever seen shot. If i remember correctly it was 12 lbs. No one has shot a 20lbs goose...ever.

I agree Shaun. I shot one last year we thought was a giant and I came home,weighed it and it was 12.5 on the dot. I don't believe a 24lb goose exists in the wild.

alot of people believe in the loch ness monster, and big foot...

I grew up in IL, the "land of the giants" the giant-ist goose I have ever seen killed was a whopping 13lbs.

Ben you weren't around when the owner of drop zone decoys offered a dozen full bodies to the first person who shot a 20 lbs goose and sent it to him. The contest lasted 5 years until he finally gave the decoys away...to someone who shot a 15 lbs goose. Because of this thread I am dam near about to offer up a dozen of last years GHG full bodies to the first 20 lbser. They would for sure be safe lol.

As long as you promise not to cut open the goose's stomach, I'll send you a 20lb goose. :lol3:

Shaun, I got one in the barn now-feeding him as much corn as he can eat. He'll be ready hopefully by the end of the season. Have those decoys ready. :lol3:

They don't exist. I have seen a few dead swans before and they are all 19-20 lbs plus and have never seen a goose that wasn't domestic come even close. It is a myth that 18 plus lb geese are flying around. The dropzone contest proved that point.

Sorry boys, adding a shake weight to the goose you shot automatically disqualifies you. :hammer:
