SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2014

If anyone knows the exact number of subspecies of Canada geese, you win the prize. In my youngest of years hunting the Midwest, there were two kinds of “dark geese”…big ones and little ones. We called all the “little geese” Cacklers, and the big ones Honkers. The little geese which are not much larger than a big Mallard that we were lucky enough to see were actually Richardson’s geese coming down from Acrtic Canada…….not to be confused with Hutchins’s geese…..actually, it is confusing because both names refer to the same little goose. But as a friend of mine likes to say, “there are no fences in the sky”, meaning anything is possible.

This little guy was taken on the last day of Illinois’ goose season and was the first “little goose” taken by the customer.

I still call them all Cacklers.
