GOOSE

Hunting, shooting for Goose

Wildfowling, Walked up, Hunting from a Blind


There is nothing like using a 10-gauge, long-barrel shotgun on a big game bird like the greater Canadian Goose. Or something smaller, more typical, such as a 12-gauge for the Canadian's relatives like the eye-catching Egyptian or red-breasted goose. Their tough, impenetrable insulation feathers put up a hard fight, making them a real challenge to take down. Being prepared with a suitable gun before setting off for the day will help keep the “I should have had...” stories at home.

Savvy goose hunters agree, accuracy in all aspects of ballistics is key. A good goose blind will also bring geese closer, and more often to you hunt. Perfect decoys, particularly arrange on an open field or on the water with a goose-winning call bring many talented hunters home with their bag limit but goose are a great challenge for even the most infrequent of hunters. Hunters can experience goose hunting, regardless of particular species many different ways. Pass-shooting and targeting geese over decoys fill a day's hunt with endless opportunities.
