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!"

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.

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?
    • Had some great luck getting into some fat Late fall trout. Hope you enjoy.   Late Fall Trout
    • vtx,   Thanks for the suggestion.
    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
