It's unbelieveable how much power these bastards can mobilize when it comes to food.

 Spurwing geese are in fact the biggest geese in South Africa. They are quite full up in the western cape wheatlands. Takes a full load of SSG to bring them down. Hits the ground with a thud! A lot of guys take them on the ground with .222 or .243 etc.
