Notes from DaVic Gallery:   Geese molt (shed old feathers) during Summer months and during this time geese are unable to fly so they seek sanctuary in lakes and ponds, making them easy to hunt. Geese were stalked and taken in great numbers using numerous methods such as shooting with bows and arrows or bird darts or catching them with nets. Simply running down or out-paddling birds and wringing the neck is also possible during the molting season.  It was customary to chase the geese from small pools of marshy rainwater surrounded by trees onto shore where they could easily be caught.
