Where to hunt Goose Geese
Geese, like other waterfowl, can be found pretty much all over the world. Light geese and Canada geese are iconic species for waterfowlers in the USA and Canada; grey, bean and barnacle geese are prized by hunters all over Europe from Russia to Bulgaria; exotic geese species grace the skies of Argentina and South Africa.
For the amount of equipment, knowledge and skills that go into this hunt, guided goose hunts are rather affordable. You can find your adventure for well under $200 a hunter a day; this would typically mean a group hunt without lodging. Hunts with lodging on private land and/or in the areas known for abundance of birds may reach $700-$800 a hunter a day.
