That there is a domestic Greylag Goose...hopefully there aren't any barnyards close by that are a bird down Still a fun bird to shoot, looks pretty hefty compared to those Canadas it's sitting next to!

Don't believe that's a bean goose, looks like a Canada X Domestic (perhaps a domestic Greylag here) hybrid of some sort. Geese hybridize super readily both in captivity and in the wild, makes for some really weird ID challenges. Definitely a cool bird to shoot!

It also lacks the black barring across its belly but does have the orange feet and legs.I gave him crap thinking he shot a farm goose but he said it flew in with a small flock of honkers,it was actually leading the flock,and was calling just like the rest of the group. I have already called the DNR and will be forwarding information to them regarding it. It does seem like we get more of the oddities when we have drought conditions than when things are normal or wet. I suppose its because the concentration of the birds make them more obvious to us when in the field.

News to me! thanks for the heads up. Gilbert, eh? sucks to suck i guess, Norsemen for life
