Canadian goose with a white neck?

Postby Skysweeper007 » Thu Mar 07, 2013 10:05 am

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? :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

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.

"you say tomato i say tomato" haha. So you saying i Probably should have got it stuffed instead of throwing it on the grill. :-/

the other one actually had a band on it it was tagged in aroostook county so decent chance they were "Canadian"

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.

We killed one two years ago with almost a solid white neck with a couple black dots here and there. There's a few threads about it buried somewhere. Ill post a pic later.
