    Back in the mid 80's me and a buddy a wildlife biologist saw a snow goose that was dyed pink it was in a bunch of other birds need got a chance to kill him really would have been a trophy only 1 i ever saw that was marked like that. Color indicated where it was from what he told me. Near churchill manitoba lapourouse bay what we were told

    A little off topic, but i learned to call on a lohman 5000 flute. Since ED brought it up. Still have it. Dont use it.

    Yes we shot one with a plastic leg band last year, it was a juvie. We typically get a band per every 75 snows we shoot. We haven' gotten a band in the last 600
