I have a few permits for shooting and rounding up geese. I don't have them laying here in front of me and I haven't read them very close for years. I used to have the option if I euthanaized to feed people but not profit from it.
I breasted a bunch for the American Legion one time and by the time I was done I swore off doing that.
The breast were small I guess from not flying the muscle had retracted. It was the first time I had breasted a goose in the summer and it was definitely different...delicious though with brown beans,baked potato, milk gravy, cut into goose fingers deep fried in Ky. Colonel flour, a big onion and hot sauce on the side. Oh yeah and the beverage of your choice.
I think I'm gonna do it again.
I mostly relocate to places where they can be hunted. It really has helped the goose problems by relocating. If you take them to habitat where they have mowed grassed and water with shorelines that deter predators they will stay and be shot during the season.
When I shoot geese with the permit or during the season I use the metro choke with sub-sonic steel shot. I put it in a golf bag and pull it out like a golf club and shoot one or two. They become afraid of golfers and usuallly leave for weeks. It makes hazing much more effective. When they start to think its bs and start hanging out like humans are their friend I shoot a couple more.
I usually shoot 1 to 6 per year per course and relocate if necessary.
Sleep'n with an animal..I can help.
Do not use both feet when testing the depth or temperature of the water
