Same in NH. Migratory waterfowl are the same in every state. Waterfowl stamps are 31.00 at the post office. To late to get one now.

I just breast them. Slit under the breast bone and work up. Peel the skin and feathers off. Make decent cutlets, better stewed.

Wild geese come under federal jursidiction. So, any rifle is not legal to hunt them even on private land. They can only be hunted during the seasons set aside for them and bag limits apply. A federal and most likely a state migratory bird hunting stamp is also required along with a shot gun no larger than 10 gauge not capable of holding 3 shots at one time, using an approved non-toxic shot.
As for eating them, there are many great recipes and they are fine eating. Google is your friend.

I like to use a 300 win mag after they land on you bait sight so u get like 200 in a row 1 shot lmao, serious tho hell no you dont use a damn 22 what the hell are u annie oakley or what??? A 20 guage is also very light for geese, go with good steel shot from a 12 or some black cloud out of a 10 that really whomps um good. Geese are nasty tho greasy boogers, but the make awesome jerkey.

The jerky isn't too bad, I have a buddy that put some breasts in his smoker and they weren't too bad, I just personally don't care for them to eat.

The only way I would eat a goose is if there were no elk. Elk is the best meat. Out here in the Big Country they sell cows and eat Elk.

I'm with you there Elk is very good, buffalo or beeffalo is nice but duck and geese are only if you are starving!
