    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">According to the USFWS figures the total aggregate number of non-Canada Geese harvested in Ohio was estimated at 754. That would include Snow &amp; Blue Geese, Ross's Geese, and White-fronted Geese.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Two seasons ago I harvested 2 Blue Geese and 3 White-fronted Geese.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Dick&nbsp;</P>

    <P>Dave, We get some snows and blues here in Allen County every year. Last year I had a flock of 100 or so birds across the street from our house. They hit every field around here for a few minutes at a time. Very skittish! I killed one out of a flock a few years back at Breslers Res.. They are a blast to hunt and make a standout mount. My best, Jim McNamara</P>

    A former hunting buddy's girlfriend shot a speck in my back field five years ago.&nbsp; She positively identified it just as she pulled the trigger.&nbsp; We though she was nuts until she retrieved it.<br>
