Alaska Goose

Goose: This waterfowl game bird known as goose and very popular with hunting guides and outfitters in Alaska, can be any one of a number of species of web-footed, swimming birds in the family Anatidae, which also includes the swans and ducks. In contrast to the swans, the goose is smaller in size, the neck and legs are shorter, and the lore {the areas between eye and bill} are completely feathered. In contrast to the ducks, geese have longer feet and necks, the bills are higher and more compressed, and both sexes are alike in plumage. Like the ducks and swans, the Alaska goose have transverse, tooth-like ridges, called lamellae, inside the edges of the bill for straining edible matter from mud and water. They are feathered in combinations of black, white, brown, and gray. Geese are more terrestrial than either the ducks or the swans, and they feed mainly on land vegetation. However, the Alaska goose is an excellent swimmer. In flight they are recognized by their honking, and some species fly in line or V-formation. This V-formation gives them away to hunting outfitters and guides on a trip for this game bird.

They are found on fresh or brackish waters throughout the world, chiefly in arctic and temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere and many an outfitter or guide can be found in these areas offering guided hunts or trips, although a few species of the goose are also found in the tropics during the winter. Geese reach sexual maturity in the second or third year and then mate for life. They nest on the ground, and both male and female care for the goslings. The four genera of true geese are: Anser, Branta, Philacte, and Chen.

Wild Geese: The common wild geese found in the United States are described below, so of which are very popular with the local Alaska guides and outfitters whom offer trips or a guided hunt for this waterfowl.

Canada Goose: The Canada goose, Branta Canadensis, is the most widespread North American species. It is 25 to 43 inches {64 – 109 cm} long, gray-brown, and has a light colored breast, black head and neck, and conspicuous white chin patch and tail band. It is found from the Arctic to the northern United States. It flies in V-formation. This is one of the more popular game birds for hunters that have planned trips for it.

White-Fronted Goose: The white-fronted goose, Anseralbifrons, is a gray-brown bird, 26 to 34 inches {66 -86 cm} long, with a white face patch, black-barred belly, and white crescent on the rump. It breeds in the Arctic and migrates through the western United States to the Gulf of Mexico.

Snow Goose: The snow goose, Chen hyperborean, is a 23 – 31 inch long {58 – 79 cm long}, white bird with black wing tips. It is also another popular game bird for hunters. Outfitters and guides are more then ready to help you plan out a trip for this water fowl. It breeds along Arctic shores and migrates to the Gulf of Mexico and to coastal bays south of Delaware.

Emperor Goose: The emperor goose, Philacte canagica, is mainly restricted to Alaska. It is a small, 26 to 28 inch long {66 to 77 cm long}, blue-gray bird, scaled with black and white, with a white head and white on the back of the neck. It may appear in the West Coast states during winter.

Nene: The nene, or Hawaiian goose, Branta sandvicensis, is the only wild goose found in Hawaii, and it is the state bird. It is 22 to 28 inches {56 – 71 cm} long, a heavily barred, gray-brown bird with a black face and buff-colored neck.

Ross’ Goose: Ross’ goose, Chen rossii, is similar to the snow goose, but usually somewhat smaller. It breeds in the Arctic and in winter migrates to the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys in California.
