When a Canada goose is killed and before it is carried by hand or transported in any manner, the hunter who killed the goose must validate their Canada Goose Hunting Permit. Validation is accomplished by slitting or punching out the mark indicating the date of kill. Failure to follow validation procedure makes the possession of the goose illegal and can result in enforcement action.
Smart move by the OP not to divulge his error. Lots of good folks here but also, way too many proud vultures here just waiting for someone they can pile on.
