2008 Goose season

6 posts in this topic

Whats the current 2008 bag limit for Canadian geese? The pdf at the DNR is coming up as a damaged file that wont open.

I met a developer who is buggin me and a few buddies to do some population control with archery gear on his new development site. He's going to his favorite people on the city council and sheriff to get us the clearance. Whats the poundage require for goose hunting?

Thanks

early season is five, cant help with poundage for the bow, I would think that turkey broadhead would do some carnage

Where is the development? It could be a 5 or a 2 bag limit if it's in the Southeast Zone.

Yes that's Metro 5 bag limit.

Can't seem to find the draw weight but 40 is ringing a bell!

I have to ask on the draw weight. With the multiple massive residential flocks on this site, I thought it might be a good opportunity to get a 2 friends who have never hunted before into it. They need to know if their bows are legal.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
