Disclaimer: This story was told to me by one of my friends who was working lanscaping by Bluemot Lakes in Fargo this week.

Supposedly this person was working in a yard next to Bluemot lakes when he heard the sound of approching canada geese. He looked up to see seven geese flying towards him tree top high. (This part I believe because geese that fly around Fargo are stupid this time of year) As they approached he noticed one that looked very different. It was the same size as the other six geese but it had one strange characteristic. It was totally white.

So of course being the skeptic I am I said "Are you sure it wasn't a snow?" "I know what a F-ing snow is" he replied. "It wasn't a Swan" I said. "No I swear (at this point I'm ready to call bull****) it was a goose because it honked when it was right over me. You can ask Bruce or Dan they were both there too"

So what I need now is for Goosebuster3 (Tyler) to ask Dan if he saw the Mystical Bluemot Lake white honker. If you could do this for me Tyler I would appreciate it.

If it turns out to be true I have only one goal this fall: To find this unicorn of the waterfowl world and see if I can harvest him and put him on my wall.

Hustad,
If I find that goose in a field this fall. I might invite you to come along. But there is one stipulation. You can't bring a gun. :lol:

Hey Guys,
Obviously this bird is a rarity in nature, I've never seen one. How about not targeting it. Might be nice to see how many years it can return to the area. I would think its odds for survival might be good if it's not harvested while in Fargo.

One passed through the central part of the state during the spring migration this year. Hopefully he comes back down the same way this fall. :)

I don't know how good it's chances of survival are...I'd guess it has a less of a chance at making it than a neck-collared goose does. The first set of dekes it's goes into will probably be it's last. If you have a flock come in and let's say out of 8, one is all white; which one do you think is going to hit the ground first? It'd be better off with a neon target on it's breast than being an albino! :D

I think being white will lessen his chance of survival around here quite a bit. Predators (especially owls) will pick him out quicker. It's not just the hunters who will target him first.
