    Never knew there was such a thing as a bar headed goose. But apparently there is. I've led a sheltered life.

    A few fun facts about the bird.


    And there is a hunting season for them in Pakistan!

    Hear me when I say this... I don't give a fork what they taste like, how well they decoy, or how many you can kill.....I ain't listening to that chit all day. :l

    They probably say the same thing about our videos. I will admit, I have to turn the sound off when I watch this particular channel. And I do the same when I watch some of the domestic videos as well.

    Sounds like a farm goose screwed a tree frog.

    They breed readily in captivity, are pretty common in US collections, and don’t require permits in most states. Around $100 each.

    Banding canadas with the state, we caught one once. Man I wish they would get a resident population going!

    Just another invasive species that would displace some of our native species...

    Looking at their videos... Just a bunch of good ol' boys enjoying hunting together... Similar to us.
