Just a speck?  It isn’t just a speck, it’s a White Fronted Goose.  And from what I’ve heard there are less than 200 of them shot in Minnesota each fall.

We shot two this week.

You’ll see them more in the spring, specifically during a snow goose hunt. They tend to migrate north along the eastern side of the Dakotas and western Minnesota.  In the fall however, they travel south further to the west.

We had a single working with a group of Canada geese on Tuesday that will be put on the wall and this morning a pair of specklebelly’s came through, with one falling.  This one will be put on the wall at the Watson Hunting Camp.

There aren’t many but they can be found.  The guys at WHC might even be able to put you on ’em!

We found a few Canada geese as well! It may be deer season, but the waterfowl migration is on!
