That's funny! I have a dead, white goose in my freezer too.

A buddy of mine I sold Turkeys to (and who is on the lookout for good feathers for me) had one get whacked by a Horned Owl.

With my whole carcasses I usually get appropriately sized freezer bag and more or less pluck the whole damn thing. I think there use for every feather on a bird. You may just have to hunt for a bit to find it :)

Have a frozen adult in my freezer, which feathers should I keep besides breast, flank, shoulder, and wing?

Going to breast it out pretty soon.

If you know a traditional Archer they like the wing feathers for arrow fletchings as they have waterproof Qualitys not found in turkey feathers.

CDC puffs around the preen gland for dry flies. The gland is found just above the tail feathers along the center line of the back.
