Still sitting on nests here, also this year have a lot of swans on the local ponds and lakes, more than I have ever seen in this area, don’t think there’s a single body of water that doesn’t have a pair nesting on it often with a pair of geese on the opposite end

They are like giant city pigeons here. They don't migrate, they live here year 'round. They enormous amounts of crap over everything. Their rotting road-killed carcasses are lying along the roadsides and stinking up the joint. They are loud, obnoxious, aggressive, and completely unnatural. You mostly find them in the city where they have no natural predators to take them out. If you get out of the city and away from all the retention ponds there aren't nearly so many of them.

I despise them. A friend of mine likes waterfowl hunting and enjoys the sport. But I hate the filthy vermin so bad I would only be killing them for spite - not for sport.

They need to start killing them in city and return them to a wild state, with a fear of mankind. But I guess international law prevents that from happening.


What from Christ that soul can sever,
Bound by everlasting bands?
None shall take thee

nightlife I have never seen a swan nest in ND. I never thought about it until you brought it up. I would guess they might in the Turtle Mountains. But I never saw it.
Kart29 I don't live in the city. I wonder is the city or the geese the problem?

I don't live in the city but they are a huge nuisance here. NC wildlife has a September resident goose season to kill off all of the years hatch.

You can hunt until 30 minutes after sunset, use unplugged guns, can use an e-caller, and the limit is 15 per person instead of 5. Resident geese are a problem

coondager2 We have a early Canada goose season here also. It opens 8/15 with a 15 bird limit. I am sure some can not fly then. So they would for sure be residents.
Oleo Acres You should maybe start hunting them some. They may decide it is safer up or down the river. They are not real stupid.

Canada Geese, generally just crop the tops of wheat, which will grow back, It's the Snow Geese the pull the entire root up and leave nothing but a mud flat when they leave. Saw them completely decimate 100 acres in 3 days and left the field as barren as a desert! mad

They ave changed the act so we have a spring Canada goose season next year it is going to be extended longer.
1 March to 30 March next year, as long as the northern smaller Canada's have not returned which are hurting in numbers.

love them with your gun bead on their nose
hate them when the bead ____ is on your toes

Are those Canadian geese a new species? Looks like a Canada goose to me.


Yeah...I know that deer have antlers.....not horns.

I'd love to hunt them,but there's a camp about every 1-200 yards all along the river. State law says you can't shoot within 500 feet of a dwelling,without permission of all occupants. Darn near impossible to get,which is why so many geese here. Some people around here like them. Oh well,the musky and smallies pretty well make up for putting up with them.

Where you (Mjm)lives, I'm sure he's happy just seeing any form of life whistle
I start seeing gosling about may 15 every year.


swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

This is very accurate. Very little that can leave, stays here in the winter. The deer even move out from around me. The move SW of here about 20 miles. After seeing so little all winter it is good to see life of some sort.
As far as crop damage goes, I have see my share. Here farmers can get a kill permit for 50 if they have crop damage. You are talking pairs and goslings. I have told a fair number of farmers to get my name on a kill permit and I would shoot them. I never had one do it, so they must not have had a big problem.
