Bow poundage for Geese

7 posts in this topic

I poised this question on the Geese forum. Maybe some hardcore archery hunters know. I am taking 2 new hunters for some early season geese. Its bow only on this property. What is the minimum poundage bows must be for geese in MN?

Thanks

Don't believe there is a minimum for anything other than deer and turkey. 30lbs is minimum for both.

I'd love to see that!

Well its a new development with pathways being put in but no homes yet. The developer is trying to sell home sites and the geese are getting aggressive with potential buyers. The geese are just coming right up to people. So it'd be a management hunt not a pleasure hunt. All residential geese that walk right up to people.

Are you using flu-flus with blunts? If so I found 40# is my min.Just to get a hard hit at 30-35 yds.

Man that would be fun to wack a goose with my bow. Just wondering, is this legal? And don't forget your duck and early goose stamps

This area is tough to hunt. I hunted deer last year on a property in the neighboring suburb to the east. The property owner and I had to fill out a form. It took a special OK from the sheriff. The sheriff wasnt sure if he'd allow it a second year.

We're hoping the developer swings enough lumber with the city and county to get the permit. They may require some a qualification shoot and only allow 1 or 2 people.

    •   Stayed home for the 4th this year, was amazed how quiet the cities seemed to be. "Is everybody up north?"
    •   I sure like the sites your old campground kept open for weekenders. Best spots in the campground if you ask me.    
    • so leech, does your campground have festivities functions for there permy site people? ours had a big fish fry on the fourth with a little parade. they do a golfing event to. i heard they finally got some decent playground equipment for kids. there theory was theres fishing. they used to do a pot luck with a theme german, mexican..bleah blah.....but that required work and planning from the owners. took away from the beer drinking! 
    •   I have noticed that trend at seasonal campgrounds too. 20 some years ago when we started camping seasonal sites used to be full of folks 60+ but now it seems that there are a lot of young families in these sites.    The other trend I noticed is that lot rental prices have gone through the roof since then. 
    •   Well in the 12 years we have been at this campground it went from mostly old folks where if your Walker wheel was squeaking someone would run out with a can of WD-40 to stop the noise! Now a lot of young families with kids. Most of the year it's not to bad, but the Holidays can get a little crazy with the golf carts and beer flowing!   I don't let folks bother me much, I have two young grandsons so their in the mix!
    • I have definitely come to the conclusion that on those big 3 day holiday weekends its way more quiet and peaceful if i stay put at home.................even up north. hey i can have a fire and have cocktails at home too!!!!!!! the weekends to go are weekends prior to and after them big weekends!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Pretty much the same on enforcing some of the rules. The 4th was a Zoo and I'm sure the managers head was spinning trying to keep track of who all the kids running belonged too!
    • well it didnt help our family has a cabin up in itasca county and have had it since 1965. the camper took time away from there. granted the camper was 30 minutes from home the cabin 3 1/2 hours but there is agood city block of woods between us and the neighbor.............and we have noone on the other side. i dont mind a little socoilizing but that peace and quiet is right up my ally.   so leech does your park charge extra for additional company not your immediate family? the campground we were at did, but they didnt enforce it fairly. some were forced some got to slide. oh and there were alot of other issues i got fed up with!!!!!!!
    • No ones making fun leech. Just made a statement. I've never seen one like that before. I've seen the hand ones curved, but not the powered one. Guess it could be like the hand one. I could be wrong. Be interested to see if they sold one like that, or someone put a power head on it. I'll let you take over now.
