I have to ask this from the perspective of a non goose hunter. Is that a lot?

Cause 256 seems like a drunken shitpoast of geese to me. Can you even eat that many? Good lord.

How long does it take to clean a goose? I've never hunted water fowl before, I would be completely lost.

Not long and these guy fly in REALLY REALLY REALLY big flocks. They are horribly destructive so a lot of people don't even eat them.

I didn't enjoy them but I did have fun hunting them.


Nice haul OP what was your biggest volley?

Vintery, mintery, cutery, corn,

Apple seed and apple thorn;

Wire, briar, limber lock,

Three geese in a flock.

One flew east,

And one flew west,

And one flew over the cuckoo's nest.

Snowgies (what we call them) are horribly destructive as another poster indicated. And there certainly is no shortage of them.

Once I was with a guide, he said blast as many as you can, we'll just throw them in the dumpster.

At first I was like WTF then I did some research.

Not only do they destroy crops, they also strip the earth bare of grass, and cause subsequent significant erosion.

I heard they taste TERRIBLE, so jerky sounds about right.....

Most people just breast them. If you know what you’re doing takes 2 minutes. They are tasty, IMO
