These are White Fronted Geese but I doubt anyone around here knows that. They are called Speckle Belly or Tar Belly geese as a common name. They go to 2 brothers
Thanks for looking and putting up with my non wood projects.. WAIT I did make the shadow box for the dead mount. I also made that knife! and the sheath

Great looking birds and presentations!

Are those "western" geese? All we see are Canadian and occasionally snow geese around here.

For a waterfowler, a Speklebelly is a real treat! They are The best geese for eating purposes. I fried two for Christmas dinner one year.

They are real show offs areobatically as well, twisting and turning as they come in to decoys.

Excellent work and presentation Barry.

Great mounts - no absolutely great mounts! Little Mikey remembers seeing speckled bellies down near the cabin.

These were killed here on the Texas coast. The White-fronted aka "Speckle bellies", "Tar Bellies", "Specks" are a western goose. There is a colony of them that live in the Centralish Canada area and migrate the Central Flyway. If people make "plans" to hunt these geese they think mostly of the west coast!
