the goose inthe pic is an adult blue.. some guys call them eagle heads depending where you hunt them. just remember there are both lesser and greaters.

I was out all morning, rained the whole day, didn't see one duck or goose.

Looks like the it rained green towards the middle of the state. Good shoot guys!
