    I killed one 16.5 one time and I thought it was 20 for sure. The scale didn't lie. 13 .3 is the closest I've come since that one. This is the brute. Nothing in the picture for any real comparison but it truly was just over 16 pounds. 20161209_133406.jpg

Do they exist probally but would be as rare as a blue phased ross goose just my opinion

    Our Canada goose season was closed for many, many years while the state tried to establish a resident population. When it did open, we were allowed 1/day. The first day that it was open, my son shot a hoss. When we got home, we weighted it and it just hit 17 lbs. That was back in the late 80's. Today, a 15 lb goose would be a monster, most would fall in 12-13 lb range. Although, when carrying them out you would swear they were all 20 pounders if you much distance to cover.
