Quill lakes Honker

Recommended Posts

I shot this Quill this season and am getting it mounted. Definetely the coolest bird I've shot. Thought I'd share since they are pretty rare.

"God I'd love to shoot one of those!"

Congrats man!

Here are a couple other photos from that topic of Quill geese-

Looks like a cross between a snow and a honker. thats sweet. I wonder what would happen if you got one during the spring light goose season. Well the way it looks they hang out with the honkers anyway. grin.gif

Hanson- I do remember that thread. I was pretty pumped when I shot it. Can't wait to get it mounted and throw it on the wall.

what causes a goose to look like that? cross breeding? or just a fluke?

Thanks Andrew.

Nobody really knows what causes it. Everyone is different. They tend to migrate more in the Central Flyway. They're not common by all means but they do get seen and shot. I saw one group shot 4 on one hunt. They waited to shoot em though after they had the majority of their limit.

I am wondering if anyone has any scientific reasons for this kinda stuff. i am kinda looking for more than speculations. would be great toknow why this happens and if there are more reasons than one and how to tell the difference in the feild.
