Im considering trying to kill a few geese on a place im on in archer county, and have been reading up on regulations and license requirements. In the book it keeps mentioning light geese. As serious as the TPW takes killing migratory birds i would think they would just say snow geese, canada geese, etc. Ok so whats a light goose. Is its opposite a heavy goose or a dark goose? Like i said, dumb question. But im not gona have a GW ask me why i killed a light goose in a heavy goose season, while carrying a dark goose tag in a snow goose county lmfao. Skinnuh

Ha, thats a pretty good question. I haven't looked at it in a way where someone might not know what is meant.

There are several different geese, so I guess it is easier to lump them into 2 categories. Light geese are all under the same bag limits.

"Light geese" = snow geese and blue geese (same species, different color) and ross's geese (looks similar to a snow goose, but smaller)

"Dark Geese" = Canada Geese, cackling geese (looks like a canada goose, but smaller), and white-fronted geese (speckle bellies)

Very well said, in some areas, good luck if the game warden even knows the difference.
