One of the rivers I hunt on is runs out to a highly populated beach wich makes for some pretty easy harvesting up river with that said this September on opening day i jumped out of the canoe and was walking right at these geese and before i shot i noticed the weird coloring on the this ones neck and busted out my iPhone before i shot. Does anyone know anything about the coloring,is it a genetic mutation or a hybrid goose????
How do you knowit was Canadian? Did you check its passport?
Seriously, they're called canada geese. My guess is that this is not a hybrid. While it may be possible, you just don't see many hybrid canadas. On the other hand, I've seen quite a few canadas with white on the head and neck. It's probably some sort of a mutation, though this one has a lot more white than any I've ever seen. Special bird, to be sure.
I feel slightly sorry for a man who has never patterned his gun, who has no idea how far his chosen load will retain killing penetration. But I'm extremely sorry for the ducks he shoots at beyond the killing range of his gun and load - Bob Brister
A buddy if mine saw and hunted for a solid white bodied canada with a black neck and head several days and had it fly over 1 day but out of range. He sent me a pic of it but I can't load it on here. When I went up we looked and looked for that bird and never found him again.
Finally figured out a way to get the pic to upload. So here you go.
