Egyptian Goose Species Description

Ramsey Russell

Egyptian Goose, which is more closely related to shelducks than other geese, are indigenous to the eastern and southern parts of Africa and have been listed on the Invasive Species Compendium for North America. In South Africa they’re agricultural pests and are hunted rigorously. They’re among a favorite waterfowl species to target there, and are often pass shot while flying towards decoys. Here, Ramsey Russell provides a run down of Egyptian Goose following a South Africa waterfowl hunt.
