I was lucky enough to knock down at least one snow goose (opportunisticly) during the spring snow goose season. I ended up using the remainder of the carcass for Cam bait, set up on the edge of a large wetland, on a mudflat.

The mudflat was frozen when I set the cam up , but as it got warmer out, the mud became soft, and actually moved my camera mount (and camera) off the carcass a bit. The first visitor was this Magpie, next a Northern Harrier followed by this Bald Eagle.

A Redtailed hawk showed up after the eagle as well, but with the movment of my camera mount, and the fact that the Eagle was able to move the snow goose carcass, (despite the fact that I had staked it down) I was only able to get his tail.

Not bad for my first predator set-up of the year!

Nice pictures.
Strange how the birds aren't feeding on the carcass much, just looking.

Thanks guys...once the eagle took the carcass off camera (which actually didn't take him long)...there wasn't much left of it when I got there.
