    I was able to take two nice young geese this morning (1st day of early season) . I have them plucked and in the fridge. How long can I keep them in the fridge ? I would like to smoke them Friday but I'm afraid thats too long to leave them in the fridge. Anyone know ?

    You should be just fine. I let my geese hang a couple days before I do anything with them. Just like I would hang a deer or elk. Considering how fresh the meat is I would guess you could keep it around for a week plus. Think about how long beef takes to get from the slaughter house to your plate.
