    Booked a goose hunt

    Just booked a goose hunt for me and some Waco friends with an outfitter in Garwood, about 20 miles from me. We'll be hunting Monday, Dec 12, so the second split of duck season will be open, too.

    Need to get me another box of 10 gauge 3.5" T shot. Other than that, I'm ready! I'll be hunting with my old Aggie buddy who loves to hunt geese and his new buddy who owns an Arctic Cat dealership in Waco. He's the guy that sold me my ATV. We'll probably have 5 folks, at least 4. This is the first goose hunt we've booked in a good 7 years. Here's a pic from the last one, booked with a guide I know out of Port Lavaca.....

    Wow! Good looking haul. My (maternal) grandfather used to hunt goose, (geese?), in Maine and New Brunswick. The Atlantic flyway yielded some fishy tasting fowl, so I'm told. What flyway yours?

    We don't have many Canadas and what ones we do are mostly lessers. "White fronted", speckle bellies, are dark geese. You're allowed 4 (I think) dark geese and 20 snows per hunter.

    I figured for sure you were going to talk about an AR goose hunt!

    Nope, illegal, but you'd have to be a helluva shot to hit one on the wing with a rifle, anyway. I've done it with a .22. It was many years ago and beyond the statute of limitations, so I can mention it.

    The Eagle Lake area is about the hottest area for snow goose hunting in the US. Eagle Lake is 20 miles east of me.

    Goose Towns


    Check out the tall sign greeting visitors entering Eagle Lake. Large letters spell out "Goose Capital of the World." This may not be an idle boast. During any given year this region will winter more than one million snow geese, in excess of a half-million white-fronted geese, and 300,000 to 400,000 lesser Canada geese. Ducks are conspicuous, too.

    Numbers Game: Southeast Texas hosts the largest concentrations of wintering snow, blue, Ross', white-fronted, and lesser Canada geese in North America.

    You can't hunt here but they are fun to go see when there are well over 1,000,000 on the lake at a time. I've seen as high as 2,000,000. Squaw Creek Missouri, about 1½ hour drive from here.

    And, they're all on the way to the coastal prairie of Texas and western coastal Louisiana.
