New Year's Eve--Picking the last drake

video

Awesome times in 2010. Closed out the year with more limits on ducks (see the movie- best with sound).

Totals- 48 geese/ 67 ducks-- total waterfowl in 2010 second half- 115

I usually head out for goose hunting on January 1, but this year I reluctantly stayed home at the request of my spouse (who fails to appreciate the need to be out on the first day of the year hunting geese). And I missed the last day of turkey hunting on the last day of December due to a blizzard (which may have had something to do with the request not to go out goose hunting).

But I did make it out goose hunting late on January 2. I took just one goose, and it was a mercy shooting basically as the one goose in the group of ducks had a broken wing and headed for the shore.

Now, my question. The goose was bit thin. I think it unlikely he was out there for long, but I'm unused to think geese. Safe to eat?

Well, safe is all relative (like ridicule- which isn't ridicule compared to slander or cold-blooded murder), according to resident cartoonist, ethicist, parodist, mathematician, couch potato Tantillo--- see http://grousers.blogspot.com/2009/12/lets-do-risk-averse-math-shall-we.html

Me,I think I'd eat it if it doesn't smell funny or look funny, but as Ernie says, I just like to kill and eat stuff.
