Tip of the week
Waterfowl hunters know to be camouflaged, right? They dress in camo, use gear covered in camo and build blinds to stay hidden. But what about your face? Be sure to darken it, too, be it with face paint or a face mask. And then keep your head down until it’s time to shoot. Nothing can spook Canada geese faster than the flash of an bright, upturned face.

Have some resident geese to prepare for the table? Try this recipe.
Boil the goose in water until the meat is tender and falling from the bone. Let it cool, then de-bone it.
Make a roux by cooking the oil and flour over low heat. Stir constantly until it’s dark brown. Add the chopped onion, pepper and celery and continue cooking until it’s all tender. Add salt, pepper and hot sauce to taste, then add the goose meat and some hot water.
Cook, covered, over low heat for one hour. Finally, stir in the scallions, oysters and parsley and heat 10 minutes more.
Serve over rice.
