    On a recent NE Ohio goose hunt we started off great and finished amazing! The first flock that came in on us had two greylag?! geese with them. We originally thought they were specks, but then after closer examination we think they might be greylag. What do you guys think? Ever seen or shot one of these? I then finished the hunt on a seemingly routine single just to find out it had a Jack Miner band on it! Not bad for my first band and one heck of a hunt!

    Not Greylag Geese but farm geese. Way to big for Greylag and they don't have white feathers on the wing.

    LOL! Somewhere, there's a little farm girl shaking a can of corn calling her pet geese.

    Maybe that's a new market for the OLT 700, a farm goose call.

    I bet those barn yards are the best tasting geese ever.

    Nicely done video WW! I liked it.

    Definitely barnyard geese though. Although they may have a little Canada in them. Most pure barnyard species cannot fly more than twenty feet or so. You can clearly hear their distinct calls at the 1:26-1:28 minute mark in your vid. But they may be closer to Graylags than you think. Greylags were one of the primary species from which domesticated geese descended.

    ....and right about now, a little girl has found a youtube video where someone has shot her two prized pet geese "Myrtle" and "Penelope". Raised from chicks and hand fed corn and barley every day for 12 years.......[​IMG] ..........................

    Were they tasty?

    Sweet hunt! Those farm geese are huge. So what bible verse is on the Jack Miner band?

    Hahaha, you guys are cracking me up! Appreciate the insight we also didn’t think domestic geese could fly!
