NE: Tekamah hunting guide hit by falling goose

December 19, 2012

From Omaha.com

A  lone Canada goose was buzzing the 94-year-old commercial hunter's goose pits near Tekamah, Neb.
Peering at it through the broom grass that covered his blind, Kohler waited, waited, waited — and then called the shot.
About three shotguns fired. The goose tumbled from the sky.
And plowed into Kohler. A direct hit.
Kohler caught enough of a gander at the goose moments before it hit to turn his head and avoid a face-to-carcass collision.
The 10-pound bird struck Kohler's shoulder and back, bloodied his jacket, crashed through the broom grass and fell dead at his boots.
“I'm a little sore, just like another arthritis pain,'' he said.
Abood hit the bird with a shot from his Browning Gold 12-gauge. The goose was about 30 yards high.
