The Canada Goose is a small class 1 animal. It can be hunted in the Hirschfelden Hunting Reserve.

The Canada Goose was released as a free DLC.


The Canada goose is a large goose species and is one of the most popular geese to hunt in Europe. Their distinct white "chinstrap" helps distinguish the Canada goose from other geese. Adaptable and widespread, they occupy an extensive range of habitats including tundra, prairie lands, and mountainous fields. Canada geese are monogamous with lifelong pairs formed early in their lives. For many regions, loud calls from migrating Canada geese flying in V-shaped formation signal the change into spring and autumn
