Been awhile since my kids are grown, and grandkids still in diapers. Took a kid duck hunting this weekend. He shot his first goose Saturday afternoon. He took a picture of it with his cell phone and did such a good job, thought I would share it. Good Times.

I have never shot a goose, how do they taste?
Spec above tastes just like Mallard with a hint of sweetness. One of the best tasting waterfowl. All the "Dark" geese are excellent table fare, better than most ducks. Snow geese can be more challenging to cook, but they are just as good as most species of puddle ducks. He killed it with a 20ga and HeviX #4's at about 35-40yds. Instant kill no flopping. I have been really impressed with the 20 and HeviX 4's. I'm going to take my 20 to Canada next fall and use the same load in 2's to work over some Canada's. It will do fine, I'm sure.
