Annual Lundar Goose Shoot-2015

This weekend was the Annual Lundar Goose Shoot of 2015. Considering my family and I are from Lundar and are big hunters, this event is very close to our hearts. We attend every single year.

The next step after leaving the field is taking your geese to the arena where all the geese are weighed together. The team with the highest weight of all geese together, wins.
