The geese are coming slowly but surely. It will be down to the wire just like the ducks unless we get snow. Scouted the last two nights and fourteen doors, seven "noes", three letters left at doors and two yeses, I have two more fields where the geese are. It seems they are not going out to feed until the last hour of sunlight. Maybe a few will leave and come back during the day, but the bunches are leaving around 3:30P and returning well after dark to roost. A lot of shooting the last fifteen minutes.
To the door knockers, don't give up. I went to a farm last night and the farmer said I was the third to ask that night alone. Of course he denied me. Keep on truckin'. It's a numbers game. I knocked on fourteen doors in under an hour chasing the masses of geese flying to fields trying to follow them. It paid off.
I tried to knocked on two more doors today. The middle aged man claimed to be the farmer. He answered with a forty Miller High Life in hand at 11A and roasted. Thank goodness he told me no, but his field has a few hundred geese in it the night before.
