goose question

Discussion in 'Questions about Indiana Hunting/Fishing Laws' started by pigeonflier, Sep 5, 2006.

  1. Last weekend while goose hunting our early season we had a white goose come in with a group of about 20. I believe I saw black in the flights and think it might have been a snow goose. Even though the white one was like a target, it still left unharmed like the other 18 did. After the fact I started wondering whether or not it was legal to take this bird in the early season? If not what happens if it was in the line of fire?
     

  2. Think it's a resident snow goose? Who knows, it could be. I usually don't see them show up untill after thanksgiving usually. Then they are only here for a few days and gone. Never big numbers either. Just a few small flocks. My one bud was lucky enough to get one two years back in December. It could be... who knows without the bird to look at? :evilsmile
     
  3. Pigeon, lay off the snows during early season, I just re-read that!!!
    Don't want to give anyone the wrong information. Sorry.
     
  4. I dont know if it was a snow or not. But it was white.
     
  5. Maybe its a "Tamie" that didn't get it's wings clipped? Who knows
     
  6. Snow geese are not in season yet.
     
  7. Be careful guys...it might have been a stork!!!
     
  8. It may be someone pet white goose, so don't shoot it.
     
  9. Snow Geese Are Not Legal At This Time But Tame Geese Are Legal To Shoot , Any More Banded Birds Pigeon???? We Ended Up With 24 Geese Over The Holiday Weekend Didnt Hunt On Mon. Had To Sleep In One Day Good Luck Pigeon
