There is a hunting season for them here. I don't think they are a popular game bird.

When i was a kid, i remember going to Jack Miners in Kingsville, a small town about 20 min to 1/2 hour out of Windsor. Jack Miners was a sanctuary where in the fall/winter, thousands of geese would be there before migrating. My Dad tells me Jack Miner received $'s from the government for this, because it became a huge attraction and people came from all over to see these Geese. Now, years later, the Jack Minor Sanctuary is still there, but a handfull of geese show up. Most no longer migrate, and they are all over .... at times blocking roads as they decide to cross.... it really is something to see. Every day they fly over my home, because there are ponds behind us ..... is i was a hunter, i could sit in my back yard with a slingshot and take 'em down.... an i used to think they never dumped while flying, till about a month ago, when a flock flew over head and painted the pavement on our court with their poop. Now, when they fly over, i no longer just look up and enjoy watching, i know to take cover!

Where we live is in the middle of the central migratory flyway, and during migration there are literally thousands of geese stopping over. In some of the storm retention ponds around here in September and early October, there are so many Canada geese that you could theoretically walk across the pond, stepping from goose back to goose back, without getting your feet wet.

They probably think the same about us...

X2, we took over their land because we breed like rabbits and need more room.

Really an old and tired argument!! The circle of life is all about survival of the species from the bottom of the food chain to the top. Man typically rises to the top given our ability to invent [traps, weapons, and technology in general]. The whole thing goes sideways when someone decides its proper or necessary to intervene in the cycle to "protect" one species over and other or over mankind who after all "took over their land". What we end up with eventually is something like C geese who now are over running our streams, canals, and ponds and making a discusting and dangerous mess where ever they congregate. Like I said before, management is fine but blanket protection [vs controlled hunting] is always a disaster.

Responsible hunters are mankind's most outspoken protectors of wildlife because they understand that over hunting will wipe out their prey for the future. Snowflakes, who think their ribeyes and chicken comes from Krogers and want to grant protection to our furry friends, are happy to let others do their killing. They get weird when they get blood on their hands when they open that roast they got at the store.

C Geese have overpopulated because they are protected in areas where they are not hunted [apartment retention ponds] and because hunting regulations are not adjusted to keep their numbers in check. It is the geese who breed like rabbits.
