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.

    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results.

    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
