For sure it's a cool looking bird! I thought about mounting my first juvie snow, but never did. What I believe you have there is a VERY young white phase juvi snow goose. Congrats on the great hunt, looks like you shot a lot of adults.

I think its because it is a Juvy blue... how many decoys were yu running? Is there still GOOD numbers in NJ? I live in PA and am awaiting the big push of snows to come and im getting worried. :help:

we have had Great numbers the last few weeks. but with the storm they are tapering off. Its our first season snow hunting, we only have 4 doz deks. 4 doz socks. So you guys think its a juvi blue huh? Mount worthy? I am stuck between that and a nice adult snow i shot.
